Question about SmartDisk (DHXF250F) 250 GB Hard Drive
I plugged in my hard drive and for a while, nothing happened. About 5 minutes later, I got a message saying that the device had malfunctioned.I restarted the PC and unplugged and replugged and bunch of times, ran a chkdsk (after running the chkdsk the clicking seemed to cease for a few minutes, but did return), changed USB cables and tried different ports. The blue light is on, but it just keeps on clicking.
Sorry to say: the last 4 times I got that little click-click-click sound, I ended up getting an Return Authorization from Western Digital and a replacement drive. They were under warranty. A friend of mine used to try some of this "Disk Doctor" software, but it seldom worked. I would contact the manufacturer (if you've had it less than the warranty period). Western Digital warranty period is 3 years - don't know about other manufacturers, but it seems reasonable that your could also be covered that long.
