Question about Fantom Titanium II (TFD500C16) 500 GB USB Hard Drive
Ext 500G Fantom Drives HD turns on but won't fully boot up. Clicking noise from the drive like it's trying to start up every second or so. The blue light doesn't come on any more. What's the problem? Can I fix it?
First of all make sure that the USB port that you are using to connect it to your PC is a USB 2.0 port, and not USB 1.0.
Also if it came with an external power, connect it to the external power before putting on your PC.
This is because the voltage supplied by USB 1.0 is lower than that of USB 2.0 and therefore might not be enough to power up your USB Drive.
After making sure about this, power up your system, and plug the flash drive, then Right-Click on my computer icon, select manage, then go to Disk Management Option.
On the Disk management option Page you should see ALL the drives installed on your system, including the hidden ones, so what you will just do is, try and locate the one representing your flash drive, and right click on it. then select "Change Drive letter and Paths", and give the drive any new, unique letter (i.e alphabet) different from the ones already on your system, and click on OK.
This should make your Hard Drive to be detected automatically.
Kindly keep me posted about the problem
Hope this helps you out.
