Question about Fantom Drives 120 GB Hard Drive
If the light turns on (mine was blue) but the drive is not recognized on your computer desktop that most likely means the drive does not have enough power. This happened to me too, and I took it to a computer expert and he said the drive was not even spinning. So it was either the external power source that broke or the internal power source, the power panel that broke. I took it to a batter plus and tested the wattage for the external power source and it was okay so then i took the entire drive apart and disconnected the naked hard drive from the power panel. Then I purchased "SATA to USB" cables (runs around 10-20 bucks) and connected the naked hard drive that way to the computer and it worked. So the problem is basically that the internal power panel is not working, and i had 2 fantom drives that both had this problem and they both worked after i did what i just said.. so I think your drive has the same problem since the light comes on but the drive is not spinning. Take it apart, buy some SATA to USB cables and it should work.

I had a 2 Gbyte fantom drive beeping and blinking and the computer did not see it. This happened after several months of operation. I took the unit apart and connected the naked drive to a different enclosure. It worked fine. So, it was the fantom drive enclosure that was the problem. I did not troubleshoot further to determine if it was the power cord with converter or the small electronics printed board.
