Hello,

my Samsung G3 Story Station external HDD failed, so I removed the disc from casing, put in a SATA box and it works well.

The problem is that I have a Samsung Secretzone file there (*.msr) which is accessible only in the Secretzone software. It seems that the software doesn't see the SATA box as Samsung external drive, so I can't access the file.

Is there any way to copy to file to the second external drive or fool the software? W7 64bit.

Thanks for any help

I"m guessing the software is looking for something in the controller hardware before access is granted (that's how Dell and places like that can do Windows without a CD key, but use it on a homebuilt and it doesn't automatically install without a key).

You'll likely need another Samsung casing to mount the drive in before you can access the msr file. Try ebay, find one that has a fried drive, but the enclosure is still good...

Hello mate, I haven't made it work yet, but mainly because I haven't bought a Samsung SATA box as I was kindly advised. I'm planning on it soon : ). So buy a Samsung box, try it and let me know how it works :) . In other box it works just fine, but I can't access the *.msr.

I also have all my working files trapped in this *.msr file. although there is a backup there is absolutely no way of getting this out, apart from buying another samsung enclosure. Is there anyone from Samsung willing to shed some light on this??

Hi again mates! I still can't get another samsung box to mount the disc. The disc it's ok 'cause I have mounted as a slave on the PC and it works! Someone already recover your files?
