Hi guys,

Ok so I'd transferred a few movies over and everything was running fine. Then suddenly the files currently transferring failed, and I could no longer delete any files on the hard drive or add anymore. I took out the EHDD and reconnected, now it says I have no access to the drive. Firstly I got the error message as per the title.

So as it is now im stuck and im not sure what to do next, have looked around through google search for a solution which usually sorts my problems out but cant seem to find a solution for this.

Have done Chkdsk B thing, and tried in My comp, Manage and drive manager but nothing shows up in there?

Any help is greatly appreciated, had devoted an afternoon to transfer all my files and sort out my laptop etc and now its all gone to hell.

Sounds like the drive has failed ! Of course I have no idea the make or model of the drive however both seagate and WD diagnostics are in my signature as well as 2 recovery programs to try

These tips will help prevent Hard Drive errors and failures. 1. Purchase a high end power surge protector which has a high joule rating of about 1200 or higher. A garden variety power bar is not a surge protector. A surge protector will say surge protector with a joule rating. Also the newer...

Hi, I recently had my dell hard drive fried and I'm obviously unable to boot it up. In the meantime, I've tried to take my external hard drive to another computer to access my files. Problem is that the hard drive was password protected on the old machine with the fried hard drive. Now, every...
