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.

I have a rock HD2-U2 and can not retrieve data stored there


Hi Philip

I am sorry to hear this... believe it or not, these are the worst drives. If you do a Google search for Rock Mobile Disk, you'll never find the manufacturer's web site. The only web sites you'll find will be either auction web sites or the forums with heaps of complaints about this product. Here's another assumption for your thought: Rock Mobile Disk is a phony company which only manufactures or supplies cheap, low quality casings for the standard hard drives.

http://raaque.blogspot.ca/2009/05/stay-away-from-rock-mobile-disk.html

To answer your question, sounds like the main boot sector of the drive is corrupted (a known issue with these drives). If Windows cannot see the drive, that means the partition on your external drive is corrupted. In a worst case scenario, the drive itself may simply be dead if you don't hear the disks spinning.
Try viewing this video, which could salvage the drive..

Tip

One way that may fix a PS3 that freezes on startup.


1. Buy a External case like this one.. http://www.amazon.co.uk/IOMAX-External-Enclosure-Laptop-Powered/dp/B001EEQQ8Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1279755665&sr=8-1-catcorr
2. Remove your ps3 hardrive by taking of the cover on the side and removing the blue screw, then remove the tray from around the hardrive.
3. Place the hardrive in the external case.
4 Plug usb external case into computer, goto my computer then right click ps3 hardrive that will now show up.
5. Right click the drive and click format
6. After formating put the drive back into the ps3 and the ps3 will then come up with a message follow the instructions... and your ps3 will now work again.
(by doing this you will lose all your ps3 saves, music and videos and so on it will be like resetting your ps3 to when you bought it.)

Hope this solves your problem!

I can't get the computer to find the hard drive. Turn on hard drive in makes a ticking noise sounds like something is spinning. Then it stops and nothig ever happens. HD Extreme HD2-U2 How can I...


This hard drive is faulty. The ticking sound is the read/write head banging back and forth - known as the click of death.
There are companies that can recover data from hard disks BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

Can't MOUNT AND READ THE DATA FROM MY ROCK MOBILE DISK, HD2-U2.It was working fine for a year.  Use G5 Mac, Thanks for the help.


I've had my Rock mobile disk for about 2 years now, and I've just recently had the same if not similar problem... normally the disk LED will light from orange to green in usually about 1-30 seconds after you turn it on, now it stays on orange FOREVER, sometimes as long as 30 minutes, before turning green (which is when it shows up on my PC). I'm guessing this is because it's very low on disk space (which it is)? I'm hoping a disk defragment will solve my problem.
Do you recall it being low on disk space? I suggest leaving it on and waiting, even for several hours, to see if it will finally turn on, and then try using some disk repair software.
