Question about Transcend StoreJet 2.5 (TS120GSJ25T) 120 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
I used to be ble to connect my Store Jet to the computer and read it properly. Now that i plug it in, the light that used to turn green, is blue, and makes a annoying clicking noise. AS well as it is not recognized by my CPU
This is known as the "click of death" among hard drives. Your external is merely a normal hard drive in an enclosure, and just as the hard drive in your computer can crash, so an the one in the enclosure, especially since it they tend to be transported a lot more. The sound you hear is the head seeking rapidly back and forth across the platters, and it isn't seeing anything.
I read the manual, and it doesn't say anything about a blue light. If the information is vitally important, there are companies that do data recovery that you can find, but it will run you upwards of $300. If it's not that important to you, buy a new hard drive and treat it nicely.
