Hello there does anyone know how to access files off a hardrive that was working one minuite, now its not working at all, the hardrive I was using to back up was via usb external, I was able to back up np, the operating system was xp pro from the computer I was backing up from, then I took my external hardrive and hooked it up to my computer which is running windows 8.1, it told me I needed permission to see the files, I allowed it, I saw the files and I transferred files I needed for the computer I was working on, that was no prob, on the computer I was working on, I updated it to windows vista, after I was done repairing it and updated the os to vista, I went to plug in my external hardrive usb, to transfer the files back, the hardrive stopped working, and its not even detecting on any of the computers, it was working before np, and now its not working at all, any ideas.

  1. Does the hard drive make any weird noises?

    When you go into disk managment does it acknowledge that there is a hard drive there at all?

    Try a new USB cable, you may need to remove the drive from the case and connect it directly to a computer using a SATA cable to see if the issue is with the case or the drive.
