My newly bought 1TB hard drive is not being detected in my Win7,WinXP or Ubuntu 14.04 pc's. I used to see movies and files from the HDD in my Android phone and once suddenly the HDD was not being detected in phone.I have removed the HDD from mobile phone without ejecting the disk. Then I tried in all PC's and the same repeats. In the USB ports, the HDD is shown ,but I cannot update the driver or uninstall or do any other activities. In Linux we have tried to use fdisk,sda etc command and could view the hard disk but data couldn't be copied. Please suggest some reliable method to retrieve the data as it is very important.
Could you tell me the hard drive model? Trying to uninstall the device from Device Manager was a good decision. Did you get an error message while trying to do it? Could you please open Disk Management and tell me if the drive is recognized? Check if it has a drive letter and a correct file format. Have you tried using another cable?
Since using Linux was not helpful, you should try some data recovery software. Your drive should be under warranty, so I would call the reseller and discuss the problem.
