\015\012I try to update firmware of the harddrive but still appear the message the same.
Hi suzi,
\015\012Its still possible to retrieve data by taking the harddisk out and put it in external harddisk frame.Connect that external frame trhough USB on some other PC or Notebook and see you could see information inside.Incase you can't see any information inside then you need to use some other recovery program like Getdataback,Recoverymyfile,etc.
