Most of the original xbox consoles come with a Western Digital or a Maxtor 10 gig drive. Is it still working?

It might be the hard-drive reader just decoding the info saved on it. If you notice, a cp does the same thing with floppy disks & cd's and stuff.

My hard has all of sudden is not being picked up by my pc or anything for that matter. The power light is flashing on it so I'm thinking it might be the power supply. What do you think ?


Sometimes it could be that it's not registering the letter for the drive. If you hear a chime when you plug it into the computer and turn it on, it is being recognized by your system.

If that is the case. Right-click on your "My Computer" icon, and click on Manage. Then go to "Disk Management". There, it will list your hard drive. You can distinguish it from your computer's hard drive by the size, and normally your computer's hard drive is set to Drive 0 by default.

Once you identify it, you can right-click and "Assign Letter Drive" and that should fix it.

-------------------------------------------

If it does not chime (first make sure that the sound is on). You can try and see if there is a clicking, or a whirling noise. A whirling noise is a good sign. A clicking noise is not. If you hear nothing, then something between the connector to the hard drive inside is bad or the cord connecting the drive to the computer is bad. If you narrow this down, you can normally get the right cause.

I hope this helps.

I have a clicking noise coming from my hard drive, and now nothing happens when i plug in just clicking and light blinking....im lost and scarred i have everything on that...whats wrong?


The cause of this clicking sound is the arm of the hard drive platter moving as far as it can to the right, in a pattern or randomly.If this write head touches the platter of the hard drive and scratches it, all the data that is stored on that portion will be erased and be unwritable. The hard drive repeatedly attempts to recalibrate the write head, causing the abrupt clicking noises. In most of these cases, the problem is caused by a manufacture defect or physical abuse of the hard drive itself.Unfortunately this is a sign that its worn out also.

Plug in cord and just hear clicking noise not connecting to a computer


This means that the WD could is trying to connect to the computer but looses the connection. Try plugging the usb cord in another usb slot on your computer. Or try using another cable. Make sure the WD is not giving out any red led light on the device.

My WD 1500 ADFD is making a clicking noise and I cannot access any data on the drive.


the clicking noise is the reader arm jumping across platters on your hard drive you have a dirty hard drive first clean all the dust from your computer specifically from around your hard drive using a high powered suction vacuum cleaner or a fine air blower from a air compressor making sure there is no moisture in the air lines then give the hard drive a firm tap on the side to free it up
hope this helps good luck

Computer does not recognize external hard drive, western dig 320 g. It has been making clicking noises before it started this problem.


Clicking noises are not an issue, as the hard drive uses voice coil technology, which clicks. Plug into another USB drive.

The hdd does spin but is not detected


A clicking noise from a hard drive typically indicates that the drive is about to fail or has failed completely. If the drive is still under warranty, contact Western Digital for a replacement drive. If not, you will need to purchase a new hard drive. There are services to recover some of the data off of a failed hard drive, but the rates can be quite high.

Hard disk making noise and not detecting


The clicking sound means that the hard drive is bad. You will have to get a new drive. If you would like to save the information on your current drive, I would suggest taking it in to a computer tech and they can remove the data. This has happened to me before, the hard drive is ready to go. Hope this helps. Cheers.

Western Digital 120GB Hard drive clicking and not reading


Clicking noises are not good. Sometimes the head is stuck and sometimes there is damage.

First try the drive with another computer just to be sure its not working.

If you can, the next thing to do is remove the drive from the case and attach the drive directly to another computer just in case its the case's electronics.

If it still clicks, gently whack the drive (out of the case again) on one of the sides to see if it frees up the stuck part. I find this works about half the time.

If nothing works, the drive may be toast and data recovery becomes a job for a data recovery specialist at some expense. expense.
