Quote from RedChecker
The problem with the likes of Iomega, Lacie, Buffalo & Freecom etc. is that you don't know exactly who manufactures the hard disks inside them. 

And furthermore, for all external drives (with USB interface) it may not actually be the drive that's failed but the USB interface itself (had this happen in work years ago with a Maxtor drive)



Following this thread I tried again to access the disk and did manage to get in finally, my colleague mentioned the USB thing at the time, as it goes everything was on there which is good

Furthermore I think the guts of them are Toshiba and Hitachi.
