Testdisk only recognises external HD when I disconnect !!

#1 Post by aqol45 » 15 Jan 2013, 10:22

Hi

I have an external WD HD that my windows XP is failing to recognise.

Found testdisk a few weeks back - ran it & windows was then able to find. :) I then started to move files over to a replacement drive ( a very slow process :cry: )

Anyway, last night the HD has again failed to be recogised by my PC!

Have used teskdisc again ... the program just hangs - i then unplug USB cable & testdisk recognises the drive but therefore too late as I have unplugged. If I replug in then nothing again :evil: Photorec is the same.

The HD is deffo spinning & cables are Ok

Any ideas??
