I beleive you may have damaged the HD itself. The case only contains the lights, and the power supply.
The only other way to test it would be to take it out and install it on your desktop as a slave to see if it comes up.
i feel fro you I also had an Ultra external HD 60G and burnt it by using the wrong ac adapter.

This hard drive is faulty. The ticking sound is the read/write head banging back and forth - known as the click of death.

How do I delete all the info backed up on my irocks external hard drive?


Usually hard drive disks are erasable so long as was an an empty space. However, the type of setting chosen during data encription causes the situation of erasability. For example, using an external harddrive disk as back up media storage media has specific requirements. The computer provides an integral means of least being compromised where data permanent encription may have been the options available during backup copying. The compoter provides the procedures of recording data into any connected external devices. Once the external device is reconnected to the computer, the options of requesting the user to either erase what has already been copied becomes one of the several displayable promps. Also, backup disks usually on connection to the computer assumes a necessity to restore to functioning mode. However, a least malfunctioning computer would simply display prompts asking the computer user to perform the most recent backup, or disregard because of least disfunction recognised from the system. Attempting is erase what has already been recorded becomes appropiate whenever the computer recognises any curroption of the files. A prompt is display asking to fix errors soon after connection. The computer user simple chooses to restore to default functionality the external hardrive. Amongs the options usually provided of the program prompt are format, delete, restore, or backup computer files once connection is recognised. keep in mind that, an external hard disk may be default rrecordable proving no options of erasing. Refer to the hard disk drive user guide as reference to achieve the process. Also, the user guide would have specified if the device is capable of alternations or not.

I have an i-rocks 3.5 usb/firewire combo external hard drive that seems to be malfunctioning. When i turn it on, it doesn't boot correctly and my computer doesn't recognize it. It continues to make this...


The clicking isn't a good sign; it means the drive is being repeatedly told to start rotating but it either can't start or come up to speed. There is a problem called 'stiction' meaning that the head(s) are somewhat 'glued' to a disk surface. Haven't heard of this problem in recent years but it still may be possible and not as likely with the extreme shrinkage of head size..
BTW, the actual drive probably has a different name and model number but would have to be removed to see the label.

You can try using Ghost to back the data up. It sounds to me like a head crash.

Lightly Dropped Seagate 100GB External Hard Drive


Unfortunately, this probably means the read/write heads were jarred and can no longer function properly. That's usually fixable, but it's a very expensive fix because the parts are inside the hard drive and the data surfaces are very delicate... Most people are better off simply replacing the hard drive unless the data is absolutely vital.
