Question about Aluratek AHDU350500 500 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
I get this error when I'm trying to backup my files 1143790540jtun_en60329009.m25.full cannot read from the source file or disk
but I can copy and paste files over to the external hard drive
Can anyone help me?
I take it from what your saying, this is a brand new hard drive.. if so it simply means that before you can use the drive.. simply click on start, the right click on my computer and go to manage. next, click on storag and then disk management local... right click on the new drive and go to format!
hope you manage okay!

Installation isn't possible directly from the Harddisk.
Try download from http://www.seagate.com/staticfiles/support/software/FreeAgentCN.zip

the external drive is just like a internal drive
It has several platters that look like cd roms they are stacked on top of each other
there is a very small arp that has a sensor at the end of the arm this arm moves along the disk or platter as we call it and it reads the information
When you are hearing the clicking this means that the sensor on the arm cant read any of the information so it goes to the end of the platter and hits the stop and it returns to the beginning and does it again.
After several attempts of reading informatin on the platter it informs the user of the external harddrive error
this usuallu hapens if the drive has been tapped too hard or hit or dropped by mistake and smoking is a big cause of this not to work
these are delicate devices and if they break they generally are replaced ok so i hope that this is verry helpfull for you to understand
best regards michael

The reason why you cant print your documents straight from your external drive is because the printer software was installed on your PC and thats were its active ie the CPU can give a comand easily.

It is very possible the voltage on your computer's USB port is not handling the load. I would buy a "powered" USB 2.0 hub, plug it into your computer's usb port and plug the harddrive into the powered hub.
