  1. Please don't post the same question multiple times.

    Have you tried another USB cable?

    Did you have any luck? Mine just started doing the same thing.
  3. guys i tried changing the cable as well didnt work , same issue.. and my cable just runs fine with another buffalo HD... i think im pretty sure its not the cable issue now!! the harddrive has some problem....and *** i got it from china...and i dont have any buffalo support in Nepal...my money is long gonee now!!FUCKKK!
  4. The problem may be the enclosure and not the drive itself.

    You could disassemble the drive and remove the actual HDD. Then you could re-install the HDD into a cheap external enclosure to see if you can access the drive. You should be able to find something suitable in Nepal.

    When you remove the drive, determine if it is a 2.5in or 3.5in drive. Also, verify whether it is SATA or IDE. Then get an enclosure to match.
