WD5000BMV hard drive does not work. Wont spin Light will go on. I noticed it was getting touchy with the connector and now it stop working all together.

Tried switching out the connector cord but that didnt work. I was getting touchy with the connection. Sometimes I would have to wiggle it to get it to read. Now it wont read at all. Wont spin up but it will light up a solid light when I plug it in.

My seagate goflex desk 4 tb was running fine but out of sudden inbetween it started making clicking sound n stopped responding Sinse then it makes sounds n not detected in my pc n also in disk management...


Hard drives can click for a couple of reasons, 1. the hard drive is not getting enough power to spin up correctly and 2. the hard drive has crashed totally which in fact can be fairly costly if you need data rescued from it - try another USB cable from the hard drive too as this may help.

I have firelite external and it's not working. There's light but no spinning sound. what can I do?


This a firewire drive and needs to plugged into a firewire port to spin up. If you do not have a firewire port on your computer (most PC's don't) it will not work. I don't believe a firewire to USB connector will pass enough power to the drive to spin it up.

My hard drive wont read it worked before dont know why


A disk-drive has several major components:
* the electronics circuit-board
* the power/data external connectors
* the motor that spins the disk-drive
* the read/write mechanism that moves above the recording surface
* the recording surfaces

No power means no "spin", and nothing happens.

Dead motor means no "spin", and nothing happens.

Dead electronics on the circuit-board means that nothing happens.

Damaged read/write mechanism.

Damaged recording surfaces.

Laptop fails to boot. no post beeps no video Power light comes on Hard Drive light comes on briefly and the Drive can be heard spinning up then stopping. Laptop was originally purchased in North Korea


Clean first its ram module edge connector with soft eraser. But disengaged first its battery, power source and completely shutdown.

Then put it back and try to boot. If this doesn't help let me know . Leave a comment.

How does a external USB SATA drive dock


yes you can but whether that would make it work or not is a different story.

It depends if the hard drive is still working or not however it would test for certain whether it is working or not.

Computer not reading free agent pro


I suspect an IRQ conflict in this case. where one day things are workig fine and the next day they are not because the IRQ conflict has made it's self known.

if no IRQ conflict is present , I would suspect a dead drive , time to replace the ole girl. these things happen , touchy equipment , buggy driver sets , you name it , things will however improve.


and remember if it's not hebrew , it's a lie :-> shalom
