I have a 250 GB SeaGate external hard drive. It has been working fine until yesterday when I plugged it into my laptop. It made a few clicking noises as it tried to start up, but the computer never...


The clicking is due to insuffient power to the drive. Try a different usb port. If the drive came with a power supply then use that too.. Sometimes the repetative clicking is also a sign of a failing drive.
If you get it to start up then save everything on it at that time as it may never run again.

Good luck

When I plug my wd 250 hd into my laptop (Win XP), my hd sounds funny (it makes like 3 "clank" noises, like when trying to read the drive). Win XP will recognize that a usb connection has been made but...


Those 'clank' noises are definitely not a good sign--the drive is failing and is trying to spin up but is unable to.

The only suggestion I have is to get pricing on sending it off to a company who can repair the hard drive and (hopefully) recover any data you have on it.

Sorry for the bad news...

Maxtor external HD motor died


Thankyou for explaining this in detail and i am afraid to tell you that if you think that the motors in the HD or dead, then the only way of getting the data off you HD is to find a data recovery specialist.

  • the minute you break the seal on a hd case, the hd will deteriorate because of foreign contaminants, e.g. dust get in there and damage it.
  • you cant swap the platters round either because all platters are different. if you swap the platters around, the hd will not have a clue what to do
