Question about SmartDisk (USBFLB100) 100 GB Hard Drive
I dropped my USBFLB100 (100 GB Firelite) on the carpeted floor, and now when I plug it into my laptop's USB port, it starts to spin and seems normal, and my computer recognizes it, but when I go to My Computer and open the drive, the folders and files are very slow to start appearing, as if the drive can barely be read from.
I'm not able to open any of the folders, and when I try to copy a folder or file to my computer, the Firelite starts to periodically click after a second of trying to spin, and with each click, the light at the top goes out, as if it's having a power short every time it tries to start the transfer.
Any thoughts on where I should go from here? What could be wrong with it and what could I try? I have a lot of precious files on the drive, but I don't have the kind of money it takes to get it professionally looked at.
Sorry but your device has had it, with a bit of knowledge it may be posible to reove your files but you need to connect the hard dive out f its device housing directly to a computer.
