You wont lose any contents of the external drive, but I would recommend to backup your laptop asap, which it looks like you were trying to do. Try to connect the external drive to another pc and see if it works, if it doesnt then you might need to purchase a new exteranl drive to backup you laptop. If it works then your laptop is having hardware/driver issues. Thats hard to say without testing it out. You might want to go to geeksquad but it will cost alot.

Externals can be a pain. Mainly because of their casings that can cause failures to happen for no apparent reason. If your warranty will be expired and/or the drive is not showing in "Computer Management - Disk Management" I would suggest removing the casing from the external and plugging the hard drive you've extracted from the case into a desktop.

If the drive is still not recognized after being installed into a desktop I would look into data recovery. My personal favorite data recovery software is Knoppix which is an OS(linux) booted from disk.

If you are getting a red light from your usb drive
then there seems to be a problem with the usb drives from the device

On your computer does it reflect the device
Please check in device manager> under universal serial bus controllers is there any symbols like ! or ?
if there are any symbols then you need to reinstall the usb drivers

> if you have recvd the driver cd you can go a head and install them else
you can go to control panel add hardware and follow the screen

This problem suggests either a problem with the enclosure electronics or your drive is having electrical/physical problems. First thing I would do is: If running Win2K, WinXP or Vista, check the System event log for errors relating to the "Disk". If no errors, try another USB port or another computer. See what happens. The Blue light is power, the red light is activity, a constant red light means interface problems (as noted above). There are more troubleshooting procedures after the above, but for now they are a bit premature (and lengthy). Let me know what happens. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

Well usually external hard drives are just a regular hard drive in an encolsure! You can try to mount the hard drive to a regular pc using the ide/sata connector(Im not real sure which interface your drive will use). From there you can tell wether its the actual drive that is giving trouble or just the USB enclosure! Most of the times with those name brand external drives its a lil complicated to figure out how to take it apart to take out the hard drive. What you can also do is try(if you get it open) to see if you can unplug the hard drive from the enclosure then power on the enclosure and see if the lights come up green(or whatever color it uses to indicate ready)! if it does then power off the enclosure then re-connect the drive to the enclosure and power on again! Maybe that works! Removing the drive might void your warranty, proceed at your own risk! Good Luck regards, babb
