HOW TO RECOVER DATA From DEAD HARD DRIVE
I have a black "SELECT IOMEGA" 1TB External Portable USB 2.0 Hard Drive. I tried plugging in directing
(Front and Back of USB ports) into 3 different desktop computers and trying all 2.0 USB ports
All 3 computers does NOT detecting the Iomega. And it does NOT show on the "my computer" screen.
And it does NOT show in the "Drive Manager" as well. I also tried
another USB ''Y" cable and it did NOT work. When I plugged it in, t
he power light on the drive is lit green, which means it getting power through. But, I can Not feel a buzzing/vibrating or spinning inside the Iomega drive.
I'm using XP and Windows 7. I just want my data back.
Is Iomega motor Dead? Should I try "Freezing It", Take it Apart, open it using Adapter Tools: "USB to SATA/IDE".
ANY IDEAS? ADVISE? PLEASE HELP.
