Hard disk data recovery

In effect the reading head is almost for sure damaged and there is no easy DIY way to recovery data at home.
If the content is really important you can send it to a company who does data recovery. Service is expensive and probably it is going to cost over $1000, furthermore they do not guarantee success.
This company does hard disk data recovery
Alternatively you can ask to a local repair shop to take a chance , get an Hard disk of same model and replace the disk. I warn you that chance of success working in this last way are very scarce and there is good possibilities that you lose your data forever

Hitachi 50hyt62u H can I add a removable drive as I have a slot in Back for one, and if so where do I get one

You should be able to buy an external USB drive (or thumb drive) at any electronics store. You can connect a USB hard disk drive or USB memory stick to your TV by using the USB inputs of the TV. This feature allows you to play files stored in a USB drive. 2.5" and 3.5" inch (hdd with external power supply) external hard disk drives are supported. IMPORTANT! You should back up your files before making any connections to the TV set in order to avoid any possible data loss. Manufacturer will not be responsible for any file damage or data loss. It is possible that certain types of USB devices (e.g. MP3 Players) or USB hard disk drives/memory sticks may not be compatible with this TV. Quickly plugging and unplugging USB devices, is a very hazardous operation. Do not repeatedly quickly plug and unplug the drive. This may cause physical damage to the USB player and USB device itself. Do not pull out USB module while playing a file. Media Browser Menu You can play photo, music, and movie files stored on a USB disk by connecting it to your TV and using the Media Browser screen. To do this, perform the following: Connect a USB disk to one of the USB inputs located on the side of the TV. You can connect two USB devices to your TV. If both USB devices include music, picture or video files, USB selection OSD will be displayed on the screen. The first USB device connected to the TV will be named as USB Drive1. Select a device by using up or down arrows and press OK

My Hitachi XL500 external hard drive is not showing anywhere on my computer. I also do not believe any power is getting through to my hard drive. Please help

buried in endless spam are you. does it fail on 2nd PC???????????????????????????? but yes, I am the MVP of external HDD< I build my own. Have over 5 here for Backups . lots of causes, for sure bad drive, or missing drivers.. bad HW hardware or BAD software SW. Missing 12vdc 2amp power pack>, lost or using wrong one. when pack above does the HDD spin? usb connected to PC. NO PC stated, NO OS stated, windows/chrome/Linux/android? its at lease 10 years old , see posts back that far. not good old HDD,this old. sold during W7 era. 2009. The drive has 3.5" HDD that needs lots of power (Amps) to start up that big motor inside, and is first thing to learn . 2amps it needs, ok? so if pack is missing it will never startup on any USB port, not rated for 20x standard USB load factors. some laptops only do 0.1amps (100mA) and are useless to startup any hdd motor of any kind. see why here. and see a better extremal solution cheap.! $10

Install hitachi p7k500 full speed

Your motherboard MUST have a SATA 3.0 port. It is usually blue or look closely on the motherboard to see where the 3.0 port is located. If your motherboard doesn't have a 3.0 port your hard drive won't be any faster than a normal hard drive.
