1) Backup your data!
2) XP or later: Open CMD (DOS Window) "Convert" [Drive:] /fs:ntfs

To verify you have the command available, in Cmd window, type "convert /?" that should bring up the various parameters to use with the command. If convert is not available, it will return "unrecognized command".

I have the same one. The power supply I have says input 100-240V output is 24W 12V 2A.
I'm replacing the power supply but my big problem is not knowing the polarity of the tip There is no sticker on the hard drive itself or on the power supply (that I suspect is fried). Can anyone help?

You hard drive has crashed. The spindle on it has broken or is breaking so please don't use it!!! If you absolutely need the information on it then you should take it to a computer store where they can recover some of the data. Remember the Hard Drives will occasionally break. If you are adventurous then take the HD out of it's case attach it to your computer's MB and Powersupply then boot up and use a utility to try and find out whats wrong and if you can restore files on it. Use a linux disk to help.

shouldn't need a driver if you got windows xp or higher. it should automatically install as a USB storage device.
is this new? if so you will need to format the hard drive if its not formatted already.
you can also check manager and go to storage device and see if the volume is getting a proper device letter.
do this by right clicking on my computer and choose manage. go to storage device and look for the hard drive. right click on it assign drive letter.

Is it spinning? If its not, then your hard disk might be dying, but you can still save the data on it. Usually what i do is try to shake it until it starts spinning again. then connect it to your pc again.
