MythicLlama: Just try a new hard drive enclosure at a local electronics store. Make sure
it's the same form factor and connection before you purchase though, if
you're unsure you can show the drive to an employee and they should give
you the correct one.
Admiral Hippie: wut
Ass Con: Ahhh that sucks man. Hope you can get it fixed, I always look forward to
your releases and videos.
Dana de Waal: @blingmatmat It was a joke.
nortzt: NOW yer freaked
gaaratoast: Pop that crap open and throw the disk in your computer. Just hope it's the
enclosure malfunctioning and not the disk itself.
Zemnmez: Check the pins that connect the miniUSB socket to the USB to SATA board.
Then check the SATA to USB module is slotted in properly. Then remove the
module and try using a SATA jumper connected directly to the bus. If it is
then recognised, try recovering the data with forefront.
Action: @MusicGaming1 That was an IT joke. A lot of times when people have any kind
of problem whatsoever, tech support always tells you to first restart your
Ben Stephens: Its dead i had the same problem
Dana de Waal: That's why I have NO HD at all. It saves you a lot of money. Just buy a
computer without one, and no problems :D
Hurricaaane: @Vitaminous I can't afford RAID hardware setups, but I know about them. I
have digital copies of most of my projects (Cloud backups, SVNs, etc.) but
not of my videos or photos nor minor collections of files. I'm processing
the HDD, it's not dead but there are some malfunctions, although data does
not seem to be corrupted. However, data access seem to lag, as if the drive
suddenly loses track and it needs to readjust back. Backups are hard to
perform in these conditions.
MaGGoT4th: That Sucks
Silentghost187: @Hurricaaane how did you get to read on the pc
fany hwang: Man,that sucks. I hope you find a fix soon.
Hurricaaane: The HDD is NOT detected in the device list. It doesn't even show up as an
unknown device. I have no idea whether it's the HDD hub that stopped
working, or the HDD itself. The drive is NOT detected at all in the device
list. How it stopped working: I was wondering why my external HDD didn't
show up, so I moved the HDD around, and at some point the drive icon and
name were found, but then disappeared, and it has stopped working.
BatIgorIsOne: Inspired me to make a backup of my data.
Hurricaaane: @MrDeadlyOctopus I'll try it soon. I hope it will work, I mean, this
external hard drive holds more data than my gaming computer holds.
sonik121: Damn, i wouldnt know a way to help you but i hope that you get all your
Action: Have you tried restarting your router?
RealmofJocken: This has happened to three HDD's of mine, in a period of late 2009 to late
2010. Recently I received my fourth one as well as a new motherboard, since
it turned out that somehow my motherboard was crashing my HDD's. Now of
course, none of my HDD's were external, they were all the main one I used
for my comp. Chances are that your HDD has crashed, since these are the
same symptoms I received.
Plaster Master: @Hurricaaane i had this too, just remove it from the external case and put
in the computer and YAY no danm clicks anymore
Sam Thornton: @Hurricaaane I really hope it works D: This happened to my laptop;
overheated hdd and then couldn't read it. Although I did hear that you can
recover dead HDDs if you have the right equipment. Good luck :D
Sam Thornton: crap dude. You tried plugging the HDD straight into the PC?
MusicGaming1: @huggybear4sh router? how can the router be the problem?
