Hitachi Touro - Popular Questions, Answers, Tips & Manuals


Hi can you hear any spinning whirring noise?
This could be a cable fault or the drive itself could be faulty.
You can download Hiren Software on USB to test the drive with the software

The cheapest way will be to buy the same drive again. Spare parts are very scarce and for that reason very expensive. When you want yo save the data on your drive, and you think the board is defect, think this will be the cheapest option.

Hello Stellafox,

The issue you describe is generally a simple hardware failure but without further diagnostics it would be impossible to advise you as to where the failure resides. If you are technically capable, follow the directions below, if you even have to consider how capable you are, take it to a repair shop and ask them to try these steps.

First, connect the device to a different computer, listen carefully for clicking scratching or ticking sounds, if you hear any report back including your country and state/province and I can recommend a nearby recovery facility. If not proceed to check within computer management(Windows) or in disk utility(Mac) to see if the device is registered. If not remove it from it's enclosure (voiding any warranty) and repeat this step. If the device does not show up on Disk Management on two or more devices, striped of it's enclosure, again refer back and I will recommend a data recovery facility near you.

If it shows up at either stage, the problem is most likely logical in nature, check the size of the drive and ensure it roughly matches the stated size(won't be exact). If it does but the partitions show up as RAW or UNALLOCATED, advise and I can recommend a software solution for recovering your files, if it does not show up or shows up in a place like Device Manager but either does not show up or shows up as 0GB and or Uninitialized but refuses to initialize, again hardware failure we can connect you with a pro.

If you are looking at a software solution, ensure the computer you are connected to has sufficient space to recover all of you files or purchase and connect a new drive of appropriate size before proceeding. We can recommend software for this purpose or if you'd prefer a company who can dial in remotely and assist you with the recovery process.

Of note if you got to the step where the drive is removed from the case and it not only showed up but also has access to your files, back them up to a second device then purchase a USB/eSATA enclosure to put the drive into as the failure was in the enclosure and not the drive.

If none of these steps work or you get very different results, report back, be specific and include all the details you can think of and we will help you assess your next diagnostic step.

Hope this helps,

Chris

Eortiz, did you try to read the files with a windows PC? Because when you connect the external drive to a PC you should be able to view the files and even be able to change the attributes like read only and hidden.

large hard drives dont like being swapped around to different computers and there operating systems they are not good swingers


try connecting the drive directly to a port on the computer.


click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X


you will need to update/reinstall drivers

right click to reinstall drivers


if you can see your usb but its not working

ports(com&lpt)right click update driver


Also check if it's detected in "Disk Management".


Here you can verify if the partition and format are correct for the Operating System.


Check the Drive's status in Device manager.


This will verify if the external drive has a drive letter designation.


Check Partition and Format.


Log in as Administrator account in windows or any other account with administrative privileges


Insert your removable disk into the USB port.


Click Start, right click on computer and select manage.


Now, click Disk Management.


Check whether drive letter for the device is present.


Check the lower window to find whether the device is detected (such as Disk 1, Disk 2, etc).


If the device is detected with a drive letter, verify that no other device is using that drive letter.


If it is, change it to unused drive letter.


hope this helps

sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable


just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems

if this fails to fix the problem
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps

Check the supported movie files that can be played on that tv then look at the file and see what type of file it is. I recommend using MP4, WMA or AVI files

Simple you have no enough power, (AND/OR) The connecting controller is damaged, return the product immediatly and ask for a refund or exchange to seagate / maxtor.. since most of the HDD of your brand are defected I personally have the same problem here, except that my controller is dead.

You need to be sure that it is plugged into a USB 2.0 slot. Sometimes USB 2.0 devices will not be detected in USB 1.0 or 1.1, or on low powered USB slots. The back of your computer is the most likely location for a USB 2.0 and is likely indicated.
