Well that pretty much sounds like something is wrong with the hard drive! What you can do is take out the hard drive from the enclosure and mount it to a regular desktop pc with the IDE connectors, if you aren't capable of this then you should get a technician to assist you, cause it might need some troubleshooting to bring up! If the drive still does not come up then you might want to consider professional data recovery but that can be quite costly so the data has to be REEAAAALLLLY important! regards, babb

Tip

The same for mine external HD


My hard drive was dead and wasn't recognized by the computer, it didn't even start, just a few clicking noises, which according to some of the experiences is the same as a DEAD Hardisk. Anyways, as I read that sometimes this happens as a result of a hit, well, I wacked my HD as a last hope for it to recover its "memory" (as in the movies) and believe me or not, it worked! I don't know if this might help yours, but it saved mine! 
The way I did it was like this: I started the pc and when the HD started to run and I heard a couple of clicks, I hit it against the table while in vertical position (assuming that the arm of the HD might slightly move better that way) one time, and then when the spinning and the first click was heard agin I hit again. After that I heard the typical searching sound of a HD, and you can imagine I started to pray that what I heard wasn't my anxiety sound (if it has any). Now I am a firm believer in the old trick of whacking the old TV to get the vital signal back! 
Good luck to you too!

Pc never see external HD


Is it that your PC doesn't reconize the ex. Hard drive? Or aryou unable to locate it once the HD is connected to your computer? Go to my computer and the external hard drive should be displayed below the other hard drives. If it is there, right click on it and rename it, like BOB's 500GB, or something. Also create a shortcut on your desktop to locate it easier next time.

Netdisk 160 gb ximeta won't get power


You may be right about a connection issue. But it's probably not a short. More likely, it's an open! Anyway, here's how to open the case:

There is a hole on each side of the NetDisk near the back. Face the back towards you, insert a blunt pencil tip or other blunt object able to fit in the hole on each side and press in. (Be gentle, these are plastic tabs on th inside)

At the same time, use your thumbs to slide the top half of the case away from you. (towards the front. Once you get ig toing, you can let go of the pencils and continue. forward with thte top of the case.

Power on NetDisk


try connecting the drive to a different system and see if that works.Incase it workd on another system than reinstall the USB drivers by going into the device manager.Also you could try different USB cords as there could be an issue with that as well.
