IDE drive not connecting from IDE-USB adapter; I/O Error

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello guys!

I have an old Fujitsu 40GB HDD that I'd like to recover data from. I bought a IDE to USB adapter from Amazon, plugged in the HDD aaaand... nothing.

Went to disk management, immediately got this post-89119-0-70372000-1414068901.png

 

clicked on OK, got this post-89119-0-15671700-1414068972.png

 

 

drive may contain important files. help pls ;-;

 

UPDATE: So I just realized that the HDD is from a 2005 iBook G4. Luckily, my PC also happens to be a Hackintosh, so I just booted into OSX, plugged in the HDD aaaand... still nothing.

 

Can't see the HDD listed anywhere except system info, where it only shows up as a generic mass storage device.

Also check its geting enough power :)

 

It's a 2.5 inch drive. so it should be getting all the power from the USB port itself.

Also, I don't see any way to give it extra power.

its possible there's a problem with the usb driver. if you have another computer try with that, or try unplugging and trying different usb ports.

In a linux terminal do as root "fdisk -l"

"Disk /dev/sdb doesn't contain a valid partition table"

In GParted, it shows 4 partitions; a 31.50 KB unknown, a 119.50 MB unallocated, a 8.50 MB hfs+ with a boot flag and a 37.14 GB unknown.

drive has files of utmost importance.

halp and ill be forever thankful.
