Some free data recovery programmes can be found here http://www.snapfiles...tarecovery.HTML and here http://3d2f.com/tags...sh/disk/repair/ I recommend you try Recuva 1st as it has a good success rate.
Now the external hard drive is not working on any computer. Tried it on xp and vista no luck./ Is there any way to get my files recovered.
What does this mean, no power or the drive is not detected in "My Computer" or "Device Manager" the data recovery is dealt with above but we obviously need to get the drive working first if we can, if we can`t it will require the services of a data recovery specialist but we warned this is expensive. What model WD is it?
You havn`t provided any details about your computer which makes it harder to help so provide what you can, is this a laptop or desktop, custom built or brand name such as Dell, HP, Sony etc if so provide any model name and/or No, any add on card, MB and PSU details will enable people to help you better.
My 1st thoughts are a power issue ie the video cam drained too much system power and when it disconnected it may have caused a surge which has knocked your external HDD out, this is only a guess though.
