I've been using a Buffalo HD-PCU2 external hard drive for a while now.
Just yesterday after booting my laptop up the hard drive was no longer available as a drive under 'My Computer'.
The device is still listed in Device Manager, but in Disk Management it is listed as Unallocated and Not Intizialized.
When I go to initialize it, it comes up with 'The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.
I'm running windows 7 64 bit.
Any help either fixing this or getting my data off the device would be greatly appreciated.
I've tried various windows data recovery soft ware to no avail.
