Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have recently bought a samsung 750gb portable hard drive, everything was great I plugged it in and started to transfer videos onto it. After about 6~7 hrs the hard disc started making a constant clicking sound, can you confirm if this means the drive is snookered so I can return the item to the shop. Thanks

Does it still make a clicking sound? If so, 2 reasons for this are: the USB or Firewire connection is faulty or yes, your hard drive is faulty. Try a different USB or Firewire port and see if it helps, otherwise return it for a new one. There is no need to keep one that you never know if and when it will fail. Good luck.

My Samsung M2 PORTABLE 750GB USB20 HARD DRIVE giveing me message says thei is a write delayed


This happens when there is a disconnect of the usb interface or if the drive stops spinning. You either have a failing hard drive a failing usb enclosure or a usb issue with your computer. First thing is to plug the drive in to another computer to determine if this is a usb issue. If the problem persists then it is the circuitry in the enclosure or the hard drive. You may be able to install the drive into a new enclosure and if it works that was the problem, if not than you have a failing hard drive.

My lacie external drive wont transfer my data from a mac to a pc


Basic Troubleshooting:

-Check all connections (Ethernet, Power, USB, etc)
-Install the appropriate driver for the device, usually included on a CD
-Double Check compatibility with your system (system requirements usually on packaging of product)
-If you haven't rebooted since you set it up, then reboot, this fixes a lot of things
-Try the product on another computer
-Try different cables/ports on the comptuer.

If nothing works, then send it in if it's under warranty or contact a professional service.

at this point it sounds as though the drive itself is corrupted It is very difficult to try to get the data off once this happens and so there are data recovery places which charge into the thousands to do this.

Simpletech 250gb hard drive


can you access the music with windows media player? If you can, itunes is corrupted as you moved the music to a new drive and itunes will only look for it in the itunes folder it sets up. Best option is reinstall itunes and it will find your music on the new drive.

HOW TO TRANSFER DATA FROM A DESKTOP TO AN EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE


I am guessing this is a USB hard drive. Is there a write protection on it? What are you trying to copy? You may have to limit the size of transfers and do multiple moves/copys. Or alternately you may use a backup program which may yeild better results depending on what you are trying to do, but also tends to be more consuming.
