Does it freeze when plugging in any USB device? Exam the USB port and plug/cable for any damage. I have seen the pins get bent and the tab cracked on a Dell USB port before.

Getting ticking noise from the computer and it does not recognise the drive


The arm for the hard drive is probably bad. That is the ticking sound. The arm is loose and not reading the platters. If you have data that needs recovered from the drive, I wouldn't run it any more. Take the hard drive out of the case and find another computer you can put the drive in as a slave. You can try putting the hard drive in a freezer for an hour or so, plug it into another computer and try to get files off of the drive. This might work for a bit until the drive gets warm then you'll have to freeze it again. Freezing the drive might tighten the arm up enough to read for a short time to maybe recover files but the drive is probably toast.

Hi. Sometimes, there are compatibility issues on external drives. Most recent computers will read them while others may not. Either the external casing or the cable is causing this.

Dear Crewchief Try deep freezing your drive, really, I mean freezing it for more than an hour, take it out and attach as a primary or secondary slave and see if it cycles up. Sure hope this helps.
