Question about SimpleTech (sti-u2f36/250) 250 GB Hard Drive
The fan spins then it clicks three times then shuts down my computer doesnt get to recognize it what do i do
This external hard drive does not have a fan, unless you have a different one than in the picture. Clicking on hard drives is usually a sign of mechanical failure.
The first thing I'd recommend it try plugging it to a different USB port, and see if the same thing occurs. If it does, try it on a different computer. If it can show up on a different computer, you might have a problem with your USB port- a common problem in some older computers.
