Question about Cavalry Storage CAUE37400 400 GB IDE Hard Drive
I bought 2 of these to store/back up my media files. For no discernable reason, a month or so ago, Windows XP stop recognizing either of them. When I plug them in, my system continually tries to boot them. The result is they show up for a second or two, then disappear. Sometimes the autoplay window even appears on my desktop. This cycling continues for as long as they're plugged in. I've tried using them on a Vista laptop, which installed the driver, but then reverted to the same behavior. I'm using both the USB & power cords that came with the drives. Am I Screwed? Thanx for the help.
Keep them in the freezer for 3 hours and connect to your system and transfer your data. If drive starts behaving like this, it means you have to transfer the data.

head crashed is the most likely reason.
drive has lost its directory and boot segment address.
you have lost your drive functionality.
the drive would need to be much larger than average to bother fixing, but if you need the data, then you can send it in for repair. expect 500 to 2500 for data recovery/repair.
sorry for the news.

First I had to reseat one of the drives which had worked loose and become unseated during shipping. Then I had to format the hard drive and finally I had a 1TB external hard drive I could use. The light is still red.

There is a Windows fix for this. Windows offers a manual registry step by step instruction but here is their Automatic Fix it. Good luck and hope this solves your problem. Take Care!
