Question about Computers & Internet
I have had the Hotdrive mobile
2.5 HDD for a few years and it has always worked perfectly. Now, when I
plug in the two USB cables, the green light comes on and the green
arrow in my tool bar on the computer comes on, but nothing else happens - the computer is not reading the hard drive. When I go to My Computer, there is no icon for the Hotdrive. I've tried this on two different computers
with the same results. One time, an orange light came on on the hard
drive and went click click click before the green light came on. I am
unable to access all the backed-up info on this hard drive!
Is there a solution to this problem? What can I do? How can I retrieve my information?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You can try to use a different Hard drive enclosure because this can also be a problem with the enclosure, if the new hard drive enclosure works good , but if still not working you can try to take that hard drive out of its enclosure then connect it to a laptop and hopefully that way we can retrieve the data on it...
Hope that helps..........

The click click click is the hard drive trying to spin up. Either the hard drive is not getting enough power, which is not likely since you have tried it on other computers, or the hard drive is bad.
You've had the hard drive for a few years and I would say it's at the end of it's life. They are not end user repairable, so your only choice left is to get a new one.
