This is en external HDD. This means, there's a HDD inside the package, and a small PCB (print with tiny ICs on it). If you're lucky, the PCB is defective, while the HDD is OK. In that case, you only need to look for another USB Harddisk enclosure for a 2.5 inch SATA harddisk. Maybe your local computer-store sell these casings, otherwise check internet (eBay for example)

To be sure it's either the HDD or the PCB, just open up the casing and remove the HDD. Insert this HDD into a PC, connecting it to the motherbord over a SATA-cable (and don't forget to use a powercable too).

If the HDD becomes visible under Windows or whateven operating System you use, than it's indeed the PCB, which is defective. If the HDD is not visible, maybe the HDD is defective. In such case, you can find at internet a new(er) HDD of identical make (brand / type HDD)

Win 7 doesn't recognize the format of XP drive. Put the Click drive on an XP machine on the network and copy files you need then format on Win 7 machine.

Circuit Board of my ClickFree Hard Drive Model # HD325 is defective. Where to find a replacement? Please! Help!


When you opened this enclosure, you probably noticed the harddisk inside. If it is the circuitboard of this harddrive which needs to be replaced, you should look for the manufacturer of the hardddisk (Seagate, Western Digital, Toshiba, or Samsung) , the type of harddisk and it's manufacturing date. With this data you can try to find a used harddisk at i.e. eBay.

When it's just the circuitboard of the enclosure, which connects the harddisk to your USB-port of the PC, you're more lucky, since you can buy for about 15 USD a new USB-enclosure at i.e. eBay incl. shipment.

I need to format my HD325 click free for mac


I'm sure the OP no longer needs to format their Clickfree C1 HD325 for use on Mac OS X, but I'll answer this question for anyone else who may need a solution.


Before you begin, there are a few things that you should know about Clickfree C1 and Mac OS X compatibility:
-Most Clickfree devices are compatible with Mac OS X 10.5 or higher, but there are some Clickfree C1 devices that aren't compatible with Mac OS X. If your Clickfree C1 was manufactured prior to 2009: your Clickfree C1 won't be compatible with Mac OS X.
-Take a look at the label located underneath the Clickfree C1: if you see WD08xxXM (WD08 is what's important here, you can ignore the rest of the numbers/letters that follow), your Clickfree won't be Mac OS X compatible.
-Formatting the Clickfree C1 using HFS+ will prevent any Windows operating system from detecting the Clickfree correctly. Try formatting the Clickfree in NTFS from a Windows computer for compatibility with both Mac OS X and Windows.




Pre-requisites:
-A Mac using OS X version 10.5 or better
-Administrator rights






Try the following steps to format your Clickfree C1 for use on a Mac (note that this will erase the contents on your Clickfree C1):
a. Using your keyboard, press the option key + command key + spacebar at the same time; a finder window will appear
b. In the search field located at the top-right of the window, type: Disk Utility
c. Finder will perform a search, and will display the Disk Utility application icon; double-click on the Disk Utility. The Disk Utility application will start
d. Plug your Clickfree into USB, wait a few moments for the application to recognize the Clickfree
e. Click on Clickfree Backup Media from the left side of the Disk Utility window
f. Select the Erase tab
g. Click on the Volume Format drop-down, select: "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)"
h. In the Name field, type: CF_Storage
i. Click on the "Erase" button.
j. Once the erasing is complete, close the application
k. Unplug your Clickfree from USB
l. Plug your Clickfree back into USB
