2nd, I tried to repair with error-cheking:
and obtained this message:


3rd, I tried to repair with the CHKDSK :M /f:

but I obtained saing that the disk is raw.

4th, I tried to use the testdisk software.

The disk appear on the list but when I run a analyse the software cant find anything.

the said "read error at xxxx/0/1 (lba=xxxx).

At he end I obtained this:
no partitions found.
5th, I already try with a lot of software programs but i cant recover anything.
All these proceding resulted with no data recovery!

The disk appear at the "computer folder" and device manager, the disk is the M:


Sometimes when I load the disk I receive this message:

I havent no more ideas to recover the data.
Anyone can suggest a method for recover the data??

Try booting off of a Linux LiveCD such as Ubuntu to see if you can see any data.

you'll need to use some kind of recovery software to scan the partition and recover them.

Default Re: Recover data from HDD

A couple of questions: Have you tried to plug it into a different USB port? Also, What was happening when you discovered the problem? Did you by any chance unplug it while the computer was running?

A suggestion to try.
1. Shut down your computer,
2. Unplug the HDD.
3. Restart the computer
4. Find any driver/firmware updates and download them and install them.
5. shut down computer
6. plug HDD back in and reboot.
7. See if windows finds the updates and installs them.
8. If so, your problem may be solved.

If that works, download Recuva software. I've had very good luck recovering files using it.
