Fantom 1TB external USB drive failure, only half seen by MAC

Fantom Drives / G-Force MegaDisk / 1TB / 7200 / 16MB / USB 2.0 / 
External Hard Drive (MDU1000)

The drive had been making a clicking sound (I didn't know that wasn't normal) for about 6 months.  Suddenly, I started having files that could not be read and Mac Disk Utility says only 465Gb is available.  I think this is a 2x500Gb drive and one of the drives has failed.  I need a fix that's not going to bankrupt me.

    I can format, but I still only see half the drive.  I think I'm going to have to take it apart and see what is happening with the other half.

Tried to partition drive using disk mgr in windows xp sp2, won't allow a right click to partition into 2 (1) one tb partitions


Delete any existing partition on the drive.
Be careful! This will delete any "data" files on the disk-drive!

Then, you should be able to create an "extended" partition, with two "logical" drives inside that "extended" partition.

How do I replace power switch on fantom gforce 1tb external hard drive?


I have the same problem. These guys are clueless. I removed the warrenty sticker, undid the screws, and slid the hard drive bracket out easily with a little push. Unpleg the wire connecting the power switch to the board. Push the switch out from the inside, applying presure to the top and bottom. You've removed the faulty switch. Replacing it is my new problem.

I have a fantonm green 1TB that stoped working


Try connecting it to several computers (Mac, PC) to see if there is a "hardware" problem with the device.
If there is, and the warranty still is valid, exercise the warranty to get a replacement.
