hello,
i have a problem with my SEAGATE EXPANSION PACK 500GB EXTERNAL HARD DISK DRIVE(HDD). At first, it wasnt recognizable by the PC. Then we discovered that the pin was stuck so we fixed it and now it can connect and is recognized by my computer. Although, another problem came up. The disk drive was recognized but it does not know what kind/type of HDD it is. It did not know its capacity/size. it seems to be a hollow/blank drive. My expert friend said there was a problem with how the HDD treated the computer.

please help me mankind, i really need to retrieve those files...:( please

mine is the one below samsung the one with 0mb

OK, do this: Boot it up behind another OS and see if you can read it. If you need help, let us know. You must be able to open the case and inert the disk.
