If u dnt need the data inside the drive, you can try to make a low level format....it will fix the drive, **** it will take a while.
for that you can google for availble softwares that can suite your running operating system, **** its much better using dos tools, like winpe mini cd, there is hirens boot disk inside the cd, and there u can find many tools for low level format or recoveries.

google for winpe mini cd, burn the downoaded iso, unplug any existing internal hard drives, plug the external drive and boot the cd.
gd luck

No output to monitor. Monitor tested with good PC and is OK. No alarm beep code


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive boot up

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
one bad lead will end with a computer error
hope this will help

Computer wont pick up hard drive tonight- have checked all cables - they are all good but the computer wont pick it up. light is still on on hard drive ...


Hi, Try the drive on another system, if it works there then there is either a driver or registry setting stopping it from working on the current computer. If it doesn't work on the other computer then the failure is likely in the drive. In this case you can take it to a PC shop and have the techs move the HDD into a new enclosure to test it, if that works you're done, if it doesn't the HDD itself has failed and you will need the help of a pro. If it shows on the other computer, or, if it doesn't and fails to work in a new shell, comment back here with either the specifics of the computer it's not working on including specs, windows version. If it's failing to work in the new shell and you need a pro comment back with that info and your location, country/state/city and I will recommend an appropriate facility to assist you. Chris

That drive is not suitable for pro-tools. Look for something that has the Oxford 911 or 924 chipset. HFS is the format. Did you format that drive after you bought it? Are you using both windows and os X with either boot camp or parallels?

Error E602-001


The hard drive does need to be replaced and must be done by an authorized Canon service tech (like me) who has access to the system software. The system software ( or firmware) is installed on the new hard drive using Canon's Service Support Tool. Check here to find your local authorized Canon dealer.
