The external drive had never fallen. It still uses the original cable and I have bought another, but it doesn’t connect to the laptop. The light is there, the humming sound is there, but no connection. Windows 7 says unknown device. Ubuntu doesn’t see it too. I downloaded UVCView.x86 and this is the what it says;
Current Config Value: 0x00 -> Device Bus Speed: Low
Device Address: 0x00
Open Pipes: 0
*!*ERROR: No open pipes!
*!*ERROR: bLength of 0 incorrect, should be 18
*!*ERROR: Device enumeration failure
I would like to know, if there is any way to recover the files in it and/or a way to format it.
