Question about Hard Drives

1 Answer

Our 2 Gig Triple external hard drive mounts, but then the LED lights on the back flash between red and blue very quickly, like an alarms is going off. It seems like the drive might be moving slower than normal, but I can't be sure, I'm just concerned that the drive is freaking out.

check wires connecting them together first, ok?
