Good day to all, my issue that I have is with my external HD. Previously is worked just fine, I would be able to access it in quick time as soon as I turned on the switch. That has changed, when the switch is turned the machine recognizes that a USB device has been turned and it reads for almost 2-3 mins sometimes more. While it is reading I’m seeing the drive showing up in My Computer and even in disk management but not able to open up the drive but use to be able to when it was functioning. After it finishes reading it just stops, the drive is no longer being recognised and not being seen in my computer and disk management , note that the drive is still sufficiently powered up, all connections to the machine just seems to drop completely.
Actions that I took and still no results are; changed power cable, tried different power outlet on the wall, changed USB cables, tried all other USB ports on this machine and 2 others, even bought a new enclosure for the hard drive, tried turning off auto play. None of these worked it just continued to read for abit and when I thought I would be able to access my data, the drive is just not being seen. The HD seems to be spinning fine, not hearing any clicks or ticks, the data lights flicker away when it’s turned on.
I hope this issue can be fixed, I need the data on the drive, my OS windows 7ultimate 32bit, any assistance given will be greatly appreciated.
