Hello everyone. :thumbsup:

I just joined and hope anyone could help me with this usb ext hdd. I am currently using Win XP SP3 and tried almost everything that has to do with the usb root. PC inspector, unintalled the drivers and even deleted the reg. for the usb toshiba hddr160e03x. Toshiba is a plug and play device so i shouldnt be having this much trouble. There are very important files on this toshiba hddr160e03x so when i plug in the usb, it doesnt show in device mgr. The LED light shows on but the computers dont sync or even notice its plugged in. I have had usb devices before that had simular problems but this is to important to give up on. Please help my business files are on this toshiba hddr160e03x and its not responding.


:huh:

thx

If the hard drive is damaged...dropping can do that...any attempt to recover data may be in vain.

Step one would be to remove the actual hard drive from the enclosure.

Step two would be to insert attach the hard drive into another enclosure or docking station...and see if the data on it can be accessed.
