My external hard is drive is foulty .What do I do


Conact the manufacturer and see if it still under warranty. Most external Hard drives have a 3 year warranty so you should be able to swap it for a new one. If it is not under warranty then open up the external box plug the Hard drive into the PC via a SATA cable and run the diagnostic tool for that particular Hard drive. Some times you will get lucky and the diagnostic tool will fix any issues. But do not open up the external case if it still under warranty as this will void your warranty.

My external drive turns on but it just makes a low pitch ticking sound.yellow light does not go on and computer does not recognise it can i recover my music ..im a dj...anything helps


you can open your external drive and connect it directly to your computers IDE/SATA connectors and get in contact with the drive.
This only helps if the external drives circuit board is malfunktioning
and the drive itself is intact.
Its worth trying!!! if this helped, Please vote!

External hard drive


1) what are the operating systems on the old (dead) and target systems?

2) Try it on a second working system?

3) This sounds like an OS related problem (if it's not a dead hard drive problem). If you're running Windows, the newsgroups/forums run by Microsoft are actually pretty good. E.g. if you're using WinXP, try
microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics or
microsoft.public.windowsxp.hardware
They can give you help in diagnosing the problem.

Problem with my external hard drive.


The HDD is corrupt.Try to re-format if you get your PC to open.
All data will be lost.
To be honest with you,I would not now trust the HDD for any critical or confidential data.
