It could be, but in my experience, it usually isn't.

External Hard Drive Not Being Recognized Hi Ger. chances are your hard drive's fine. try a different USB port and different USB cable if you can. it could be a faulty drive enclosure. I supply a disk recovery service. I used to work for a recycling company and i still have the equipment we used to use to recover hard drives. I can run some diagnostics on the drive for you and try and trace the fault. If needs be i can supply a replacement drive with your data in tact, or supply a replacement enclosure. My background is system building, electronics hardware and networking. Please feel free to email me off list, firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll try to figure this out! all the best, Mo.
