Extern HDD doesnt do anything when plugged in. I would like to open the case and check whether its a problem with the hdd itself but i cant open the case. I pushed two pins on the bottom part of the case...


Hi

Start by checking if the power cable and power adapter work. Test the cable on another device. The adapter may have a unique or unusual connector that prevent it being testied with other devices but may also have a power light that confirms whether it works or not.

Factory Built Hard Drives are designed to be non user repair friendly. Often, this is achieved with hidden screws.

Check carefully if the end or side panels or strips on the side panels slide or peel away to reveal hidden screws.

I would expect there to be 4 lateral screws to hold the hard drive fast to minimize vibration during use. Check those coloured side strips carefully to see if the lift up, slide up up down or peel off to reveal hidden screws.

The cap end on the top may clip in and might need force (not too much) to unclip.

Look if any warranty or other labels underneath cover hidden screws.

Hope this helps.

How to install a USB flash drive


Just plug your USB flash drive into the USB port of your computer or other USB-equipped device and drag the files you want to take with you into the folder that appears on your screen. Your files are instantly transferred to your USB flash drive. To transfer the items on your USB flash drive onto another computer, simply plug your USB flash drive into the computer that you want the files transferred to, open the folder that appears on your screen, and drag the desired files onto the computer's desktop.

1.) Insert Flash Drive into the USB Port of your computer.

-Where is my USB port? It is usually found in newer model computers in a hidden compartment on the front of the hard drive and in the back of the hard drive on older computers. The port for laptops is found on the side or back of the computer.

2.) Wait for the hardware to automatically install on your computer.

After the hardware is installed, it is ready to use!

3.) In most cases, an Options Window will automatically open. Select "Open folder to view files" Click "OK."

Flash drive got bent while plug into the usb ****


try plugging the flash drive into another pc and see if it works.. or if the usb hub is the problem try another flash drive or usb component on the same plug and see if your computer detects it.

your question was not very clear.. but if your concern is about the flash drive been broken there's probably not much you can do if you're the one to blame for the accident. flash drives are solid state memory that can't be removed for the case and put into another case without risking damaging the chips inside and the data with it... but if you need to try make sure you protect the unit from electrostratic discharge so get another unit just like your's that is not bent, try to open the broken one and see if your memory stick inside the flash drive is still intact and just replace the casing if possible (i never done it myself but I guess it's worth to try if you really need that data)
