Question about Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 (U01E200) 200 GB Hard Drive
WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN THE DRIVE MAKES NOISE LIKE DING DING??
More that likely the drive is dying?? :-( ..
Usually the 'click, click , clicking' noise is the 'actuator' trying to read the drive.. One old trick that workings sometimes is to remove the HardDrive from the enclosure. Put it into several ziplock baggies and put it in the freezer over night (colder the better). quickly remove the drive and put it into a computer. Sometime you can read the drive for about 10-15minutes. But this trick only works about 20% of the time.. The only other option is DriverSavers.com (about $2k -- Yikes!!! ) :-(
