Question about Iomega 1TB Desktop USB 2.0 Hard Drive
Hopefully, the read errors are not from physical damage.
These are the steps that you need to take, and the instructions on how to do it:
1. Reboot into Safemode
2. Run a virus and spyware scanner
5. Registry error repairing
6.Reboot into regular mode windows
Here is how to do it:
Reboot yor machine while holding the F8 key right as it boots back up. A menu will apear. Choose -->"start windows in safe mode with networking".
Windows will start in safe mode. Run an AVG virus scan, then run Defrag by exploring your computer, right click on C: drive, click PROPERTIES, then the TOOLS tab, click the "check now" button, and both checkboxes,both 'fix file system errors', and "scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors" then click ok, the computer will then tell you it will scan upon next reboot (which upon reboot will take about an hour). Now click the DEFRAG NOW button. then choose defrag. After Defrag runs for about an hour and it is finished, restart the system. If is still won't run normally, go back into Safemode buy pressing F8 on reboot, then run a registry fixing program such as uniblue registrybooster, then reboot again. If it still won't run right, you may want to format the hard drive and reinstall Windows and see if that works. If reinstalling windows doesn't fix it, it is definitely a hardware problem.

Testimonial: "I had tried those steps prior, still ran into an error, HDD Regenerator was able to reset the parameters and now Windows XP seems to be able to set up"
My USB 2 1TB got knocked over and now is making a clicking noise. It is connected to my DVR not my computer. The programs on it play and I can record new shows but it still makes this clicking noise. Any ideas?
