Seagate expansion portable drive won't post makes clicking noise


Very likely the head is no longer aligned, and can no read the disc correctly. This is physical damage that can not be repaired. There are specialist, but at premium prices.

I have a 500gb roco toshiba external drive. the light is on but it won't read. i tried to change it's cable but still it won't work. how can i fix it?


try and listen to the drive when plugged in, if you hear a faint skipping noise. i suspect it is a fault internally on the reader.
if you have a reciept usually the manufacturer will exchange this. as a repair is very tricky!

Arogsy 500GB HD Drive won't boot up


If you have dropped it, most likely the hard disk is damaged, especially if it makes clicking noises..
The case is probably screwed together, but the screws are hidden with plastic covers or under a label.
If you are able to remove the hard drive you can connect the hard drive to an USB hard drive adapter and conect it to a working computer's USB port. It will see it as an external hard drive, if the hard drive is OK you can view and open the folders and files.
You can also connect the hard drive to a desktop PC as a slave drive if the PC's BIOS can support a hard drive of 500Gb.
If you are desparate to recover data from a damaged hard drive, there are companies that can recover data from these drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

Odd clicking noise...


That clicking sounds if ever loud enough is one annoying symptoms of failed disc. When it accidentally drop the reader may come off the disc. It sad to say but you may consider to change your hard disc.

EZ Monsoon Hard Drive powers on but shuts off in 10 seconds


if it is external try putting it in a similar external case, this would mean that you would have to remove you drive from the casing and putting it in another and trying.

Don't remember how to use


I also have a Monsoon 320GB hard drive.  There is a power cord that attaches to the hard drive and the power source, make sure that the drive is turned off, plug the power cord in to the drive and the power source.  Mine came with two types of connectors to connect the hard drive to the computer.  Firewire to Firewire and a usb cord.  Use one of the cords to connect the hard drive to the computer.  Then turn your drive on.  If an icon doesn't show up on your desktop you can restart your computer, that usually works for me.  The drive functions just like your internal hard drive.  If you want to save files on the external drive just choose that option when saving a file.  Hope this helps.

Loud clicking noise


You are experiencing the infamous "Click of Death" indication of a failed hard drive.

Most likely, since you cannot access any data on the drive and it has the loud click, the most likely way to recover data from the drive is a data recovery service. www.ontrack.com, www.Drivesavers.com etc.

The bad news it that data recovery is extremely expensive. So, unless this is data you cannot live without, it may not be worth the expense to recover the data. You can contact the data recovery specialists and get an estimate. Last drive quote I saw was a 120 GB drive cost $1200 for recovery.
