Get a replacement. But first, I would try it on another PC and another USB-port (front AND back) in your PC. If all fail, it's the drive.
hi i recently bought a samsung usb 500gb hdd
model no- NIM-0802
the first day it worked fine for few hours.. copied abt 60gb of data to it.. suddenly the copy of files stopped.. i unmounted the drive and after few minutes reconnected it.
the drive got detected. i can read the files that r in it but when ever i try to copy a file to it.. it fails n gives a crc error. i tried to format it but windows failed.
i then deleted the partition can created 2 partition of more or less equal size.. now i cant format the partition. its giving an I/O error.
any idea how to make the drive work again. i donot need to recover the data that is in it.
