Retrieving files off external 3tb Seagate hd thats not turning on

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I had this one for about a year or two, but now it does not power on at all. The light doesn't light up, and it doesn't show up in my storage.

When i opened the enclosure and try to connect it directly to my pc, it tells me that it needs to be formatted because it is unrecognizable, and it does not contain a recognizable file system. I remember reading back then that I had to buy some other kind of external connection to be able to read it, but I'm not sure. Any help? Thanks, btw i'm running windows 7 64 ultimate.

    So when you take the drive out of the enclosure and connect it directly to your PC, the HDD does turn on, is detected, and appears in Windows Explorer?

If it needs to be formatted again you should be able to quick format it to the previous file system. Use a program test disk to restore the old filesystem structure and have all your data back.
