I assume you have tried all the normal things like trying a different cable
and a different USB socket.

You could also try rebooting the computer particularly if you have recently
disconnected the disc at the wrong time.

Gerard, I hate to say this, but usually when that happens it means the hard
drive has died.
Cheers

Subject: [BCAB] Urgent!!! External Hard Drive Not Being Recognized

Hi all

My external hard drive is not being recognized on my computer at all.

I will try it on another machine tomorrow.

However, I have a lot of data on it, including some I really need ASAP, so
if anyone could tell me how to fix this problem without formatting the disk,
I'd really appreciate it.

I should say that the drive seems fine. It runs normally when plugged in on
my usb. At least the hard drive is spinning normally. Nor have I done
anything to the drive, which is quite new.

Please help on this one if you can!

Ger
