I have a Transcend 500 GB hard drive which I plugged into a netbook with low RAM. Obviously the computer was really slow and I could not really navigate around my data so I unplugged it without safe ejection. On plugging the external to a dresktop the drive could never be recignized. How do I recover my data? Should I try myself at home or send it to the professionals?

I wouldn't try to recover it or else you may screw it up even further. I think you should try to send it to a pro and see if they can recover it for you to save yourself frustrating work.

Well...I'd try running chkdsk /r on it, just as I would an unreadable floppy.  File corruption can be overcome, if that's the problem.  I can't tell from what you've posted.

 

Are you saying that your system doesn't detect a USB connection with the drive?  Any error messages?  Is the drive reflected in My Computer?

 

See http://knowledge.seagate.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/194531en for the sort of questions that should be asked/answered, IMO...before doing anything else.

Thanks for all your responses. This update is slightly late, but I got it recovered from $300 data recovery  They did a really good job with it.
