Question about SmartDisk Crossfire Desktop (xf160f) 160 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

My Western Digital External Hardrive will not turn on.

It worked perfectly before I rearranged my room and had to unplug all of it. I have the correct peices to plug it all back it but it just will not turn on. It is a plug and play and therefore doesn't have an on and off button, it is just supposed to come on... What should I do? Everything is on the hardrive I really need it.

My passport 500gb external just stopped working. It froze up so I removed it and plugged it back in. When I plugged it back into my computer it starts spinning but then makes a click sound and stops.


The clicking sound is caused by the spindle inside the hardrive, because it was not removed properly. Just connect you external hardrive to your computer, if it makes the clicking sound again dont remove it yet, just restart your computer properly. In that way all the devices connected to the computer will be refreshed and properly shut down. If it is not detected still, unplug the haardrive then try another USB port. Recommended ports are at the back of the CPU if your using a desktop. These USB ports have higher voltage output that can power up all external hardrives properly.

Dear! It show perfect because 1Gb = 1024 MB so if you calculate it you will find it equal to 298 GB because it is binary system shows while vendors account 1GB = 1000 MB but we format it according to binary machine language so that's equal to 298GB. I hope you have make sense.
Thank You

Capactiy of external hardrive


That's normal. Storage manufacturers consider 1 GB at 1 billion bytes (1,000,000,000 bytes).

Computers, however, use base-2 arithmetic, and one kilobyte is 1024 bytes, one megabyte is 1024 kilobytes, and one gigabyte is 1024 megabytes. This all multiples to 1 gigabyte according to the computer is 1024^3 or 1,073,741,824 bytes.

Take 320,000,000,000 and divide it by 1,073,741,824 and you get 298.023223876953125, so your computer says your "320GB" drive is 298GB.

There's a standard for base-2 (binary) measurement terminology (gibibytes, mebibytes, kibibytes, etc), but few people seem to use it.
