Question about Archos (500653) 40 GB Hard Drive
The USB2 port see the drive as "Hitachi_DK13FA-40 USB Device" with no drive letter (F or G or ....).
The hard drive making noise and can not populate volumes in device Properties.
Please help !
The noise the Harddrive is making is this a clicking sound? if yes the drive is going (gone) bad.
if the above is not true and you see the USB in the device manager do you see the drive in Disk Management? (right click my computer / Manage then go to disk manage do you see your drive on the right side without a drive letter. if so right click on it change drive letter and assign it one that is not in use (this is for windows XP)
if none of these please provide more information.
