This drive stopped working when he tries to save some data into it. When he connects the drive to his PC, computer can detect the hard drive but couldn’t access the drive, it prompted “parameter is incorrect”. He unplugs and try again, but it’s still the same error. Subsequently, he tried on a different PC and it is the same. The drive is still spinning and there is no abnormal sounds encounter. His precious data are saved on this hard drive.
