Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 160GB 7200rpm 100MBps Ultra ATA/100 (ATA-6) Internal (ST3160021AFT) Hard Drive
I always use my external hardrive for my pc. however, at college we work with Apple and i took the external hardrive to show teacher some work. Now, when i plug it back on my pc at home it doesn't work. it asks me to format but if i do that i've been told i lose all data on external hardrive. is there another way of making it work again on my pc?

Try to plug it into more than 1 computer other than your PC. If it works, then the problem is the interface between the hard drive and your computer and if it really doesn't work, you're solution is have it recover by data recovery experts. Here are a few things you need to keep in mind, on taking your first steps in such a situation: Do not open the hard disk and try to repair it on your own. If you're data is really, very valuable, don't use automatic data recovery tools. Before you bring it, wrap the defective units in anti-static envelope if possible, bubble wrap it, and seal package securely. You also had an option to recover it on your own by using known data recovery software but it's risky compared if you bring it to a data recovery experts. If the problem is within the mechanical parts of a hard drive, there's a possibility that you will not attain a 98% chance of recovery if you do it on your own.
