today i was copying some files and i accidentally knocked the cord out (silly me) and now when i insert the device it wont come up in my computer, but it will come up in device manager and i cannot get it formatted or anything? anyone got a solution? i really need this hard drive to be working.
First thing: Try connecting this HDD to some other computer. If that doesn't help then try this http://partedmagic.com/doku.php
This is a Linux based OS and can be run from CD (no install required)
Sometimes, HDDs do not appear in Windows but they come up in Linux.
