Question about Acomdata (HD250UE5-72) (HD250UE572) 250 GB Hard Drive
I can plug my external hard drive in, the computer recognizes it and autorun comes up. It asks me for my password and when I go to log in as soon as I click "log in" it seems the program stops running and the light periodically flashes red (unless I'm mistaken it usually will be pink/blue, not red). Is this a software issue? If so is there any way to fix it without losing my stored information or having to send the hard drive back to get fixed? I'd prefer not to have to wipe the hard drive.
Red usually means that reading has encountered an error or that it has encounter a corrupt file thats why it freezes. try to recover those files using recovery software.

Power down your computer.
Remove the screws on the rear of the case and remove the side panel.
Place the jumper on the back of the hard drive to the "write-enabled" position.
Consult your drive manual if unsure of how to do this for your specific Western Digital drive model.
Replace the side panel and restart the computer.
If you know the password, go into the installation disc that pops up in my computer when you plug in your wd hard drive (right click and then open, not autorun) there should be some sort of thing called security.
Possibly unlock, or something along those lines on there double click on it and type in your password it should unlock it then every time then that you plug in your hard drive, you might have to do this to access your files
hope this helps
