Well if its lighting up, then the drive is receiving power, or the enclosure atleast. Forget that case, extract the drive, and seek out something more reliable and more solid. Preferably an aluminum enclosure with no fan.

seek out Weibetech.

Hi my blue light for the external hardrive turns on all the time but my computer just wont detect it \r\ndoes this mean that my hardrive doesn' work anymore? is there anyway i can all my files bac? thank...

If it used to read it, but doesnt anymore, could be a sign of a hardware failure. If another computer reads it, then it is probably a driver issue. Try to turn the power on, then insert the USB cable into the computer.

Remove the hard drive and try to turn on the computer. If it turns on (of course it's not going to boot) try to go to the setup screen. If that works then you either have a bad drive or it is not installed properly. Have fun!

Brand new, not recognized by hardrive

Try plugging it into the back ports of your computer haven't already. The clicking is from the reading head not finding zero on the platter, which means its either a bad drive or a lack of power. So try the back ports first if you haven't already, because they usually supply more power than any front ports. It also depends on how old your computer is, but in general if it has XP on it it should have enough juice to power the drive.

My sata external usb western digital 320 gb drive only shows up as an unknown USB device. Is there any way to get my computer to recognize it. I have a laptop using windows xp. Ive tried unplugging...

First make sure usb cable connected to harddrive is working fine.
try it in different usb ports.
Press windows key +R key so you can see run then type in run "devmgmt.msc" then press ok so you can see device manager uninstall all usb drivers then it automatic install usb drivers.
then check.
Also you need to change registry for that type in run "regedit" then press ok then you can see registry editor then locate below key.
And remove upper filter and lower filter.Then restart computer then check.
If your harddrive still not recognized then you need to repair your harddrive.Try your harddrive in different computer if it is not recognized on another computer then your harddrive has internal issue.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Maxtor Basics 320 GB external harddrive cant be recognized

There's a good chance the shop you bought the drive from didn't have SP3 installed. For some reason, SP3 has an issue with USB peripheral devices. Windows has created a patch to rectify the problem. Click on the link below and install the "Fixit" patch to enable your PC to recognize your HD. Best of luck.

My Computer doesn't recognize Ion 320 GB Harddrive w/Tri select

This isn't a solution but might help...

I have the same drive... with mine it recognizes sometimes but usually freezes my computer when I try to write to the drive. I thought it was the actual hard drive, but that works fine when installed in my tower... I now notice that one of the small components, component L14, is actullay missing a corner!!!! Like it chipped off! I'm blaming that. It seems to be part of the usb/firewire section of the mainboard. I'd like to replace it... does anyone know what that component is?

here are some photos:
