Question about Aluratek 3.5" USB2.0 320GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive
First time user, so no idea what to do. When I try to drop/transfer anything to my aluratek hard drive, it says 'the item could not be moved because "ALURATEK" cannot be modified.' What's the deal? What can I do? Thanks.
I take it from what your saying, this is a brand new hard drive.. if so it simply means that before you can use the drive.. simply click on start, the right click on my computer and go to manage. next, click on storag and then disk management local... right click on the new drive and go to format!
hope you manage okay!

A drive making noise suggests that something physical has gone wrong. If something happened so that the OS simply can't access your data and there not too much physical damage to the disk, try one of those recovery programs, but one that doesn't attempt to fix the disk, only access the data

did you check it connect properly on USB? how about to try it to run in another PC maybe it works there. If not then you should buy a new one.

I have the same problem with my Aluratek AHDDS100F Sata to usb 2.0 docking unit. It will only work now if I connect it via usb 1.1. I am using a Iomega usb 2.0 pci card.

Connect the external hard drive to the host computer.
This connection is most commonly made with a USB-style connector.
However, eSATA connectors are becoming more prevalent in the general computing market.
Plug the external hard drive into an electrical power source.
Navigate to the external hard drive listing under the "My Computer" window.
This is opened by double-clicking the "Computer" or "My Computer" desktop icon.
Double-click the external hard drive drive icon listing and navigate to the files to be copied using the provided navigation window.
Right-click the files to be transferred and select the "Copy" heading from the context menu.
Navigate to the destination folder on the host computers hard drive using the same navigation window.
Right-click within the folder and select the "Paste" option.
This begins the process of transferring the files to the computers hard drive.
This process takes several minutes to several hours, depending on the size of the files and the speeds of the hard drives.
A progress bar will appear to keep the user informed of the process completion status.
hope this helps
