Sorry this needs to be in External. I was looking a topic here with the same drive.
My (4061)4060-705059-003 is broken, the usb port came off, little kid knocked it down. .>_<.
Anyway, main details:
Before it broke the capcity light was full, because the drive was full.
When trying to plug it back in, before I knew it was broken, the light dissappeared. Shows empty, the lock light is still on, so it’s getting power, but the capacity light is off.
Question 1 : Did a power failure or usb failure cause the drive to become empty or corrupted?
Question 2: If I buy another (4061)4060-705059-003 replacement chip, will I be able to plug it intot he HDD and regain control of my drive?
If so, would that be able to give my data back?
One thing extra…
I took it out to see what was wrong, that’s how I found out it was the usb port broke.
I then thinking since it was a normal HDD with SATA I hooked it up to my desktop to try and retrieve the data, that’s when I found out that it was encrypted thanks to the usb chipset.
Doing this, will it effect my chances of regaining my data? Also will running a data recovering program effect the data on the drive?
I know alot of questions, but I have my kids pics and stuff on there, and I would really love to get them back. Sorry.
Thank you for your time.
