    It is external powered.

    When i turn it off, i hear a beeping sound, like the one comming from a tv or something, and when i turn it on, it doesnt sound clear, it sounds more than usual.

    A friend told me to take it out from its original shelter, and to put it in my computer, and try to boot it from there, what do you think about that?

    I will try that, and if it works i'll let you know!



    Thank you for your help

Sounds like the drive is dying. Is it externally powered, or powered through the USB port? How old is the drive? When you say 'strange' what does it sound like?

    That is a good idea. I wouldn't try to boot from it though. I would add it as a slave and copy the data off of it. Just find out if you have a 2nd ide connector on your current cable, and make sure your current drive is set to master, and the one you're adding is set to 'slave'. I try not to mess with cable select much because it just adds another variable that can go wrong. Once the drive is running you can copy everything off of it (providing the drive isn't 'dead' already).
