Try to do a system restore first. Choose a date when it was still working ok.

Hi there i have a hitachi hard drive model HTS541680J9SA00 and have brought an external case for it but its does not fit. Do i need a specific external case at all?


I had that problem if the hard drive is full size (same size as a pc hard drive) you will need a 5.25 external case.

Hi there, the red light on my ps3 is blinking and it wont take disc either. So what is the problem with it? thanks!


The Red light is due to the HDD (hard drive). There is one of 2 problems: 1. The connection is loose or 2. The HDD is just bad. This was an issue that has been discussed over in the Playstation forums and it seems that re-seating (removing & reinstalling) the HDD has solved the problem for many but some people have just received bad hard drives period. If you reinstall the HDD & it still beeps 3 times & gives you the red light, then you will have to replace your HDD. If I remember correctly, PS3s use Hitachi Laptop Drives. IMO, Hitachi is not well known for good drives. I replaced mine with a 160GB Western Digital drive I got for free a few months ago. I haven't had any problems since. Hitachi makes a good drive, but the ones that fail seem to fail really bad. Western Digital seems to make the best drives and

I restored my computer and i saved all my data in my one touch 4 mini hard drive. Now my computer wont read one touch 4 mini 250gb. can some one please help me i lost everything?


No, you haven't lost anything. When you restored your software, you only restored the factory stuff. You'll need to reinstall the driver for the external hard drive. After you do that, your external drive and data should be accessible.

When i plug my externals one or both the computer recognized them but u can not double click to open u have to explore this started after i pluged them into a different computer they appear as folders...


If I understand your question, you want to change what happens when you plug your external drive in. If you're using Windows 10, go to: settings>devices>autoplay. Sometimes I get tired of answering all the questions, and simply say OK. Then the next time I do something, it doesn't work like I want it to - so I change the autoplay setting.

Need help to locate Western Digital Passport 160GB External Drive


Could be a hard drive logic board issue since the computer bios recognizes the drive but the computer operating system does not. Not good.

Simpletech hard drive


Your desktop usb compatibility is not supported your 160GB. The only way to attach you 160GB is to make it secondary partition to your primary drive by opening the CPU and attach it to your IDE cable.

Don't force yourself if you cannot do it by yourself just leave it to the expert. Probable cause to damage your hard drive if it is not installed properly.

Please rate me solved if you like my solution.


Best regards,


Philip
