: 1TB External HDD is now only recognized as CD-ROM drive
: fenner August 23, 2016, 12:50:02 AM
Something went wrong as I was using my 1 TB Buffalo external hard drive HD-PZ1.0U3B. I began hearing some disk internal noises when the USB cable was accidentally unplugged and now the disk is only recognized as a CD-ROM drive. I tried loading the disk into another Windows PC but got the same result. If I go to disk managment on Windows the disk is seen as CD-ROM RAW.
Please advise what I can do to try to recover it.
