My WD elements 1.3 TB external hardisk. It gives a buzz when connected and is not recognised by windows


It sounds like the HDD inside is dead. The USB interface may have an issue but usually clicking or buzzing is HDD failure. If you have a desktop you can try removing the hard drive from the external case and connecting it directly to the computer using a SATA cable.

Hi, i am using an internal HDD of WD 320 gigs. it has all of a sudden stopped workin ang givin a weird noise and when i turn my computer on it shows a blue colored error window


This is called a 'blue screen' and is notorious in the computer community as the indication of a debilitating problem that your computer is suffering from. There are very many things that can cause a blue screen or a blue screen crash, but you can attempt resetting your BIOS to try to correct the blue screen. If this doesn't work, I recommend taking your computer to a licensed computer repair technician.

My laptop Model Compaq 5204NR I want to extend my hardisk. Is it possible to use External Hardisk for this model laptop. If it means how much can i use 1TB hardisk or which is suitable for this laptop....


Yes you can use an external HDD to extend your current HDD. If by extend you mean use the external HDD for storage and such.
However if you wanted to literally extend your current HDD by creating a single partition for both HDDs then it could be extremely problematic because the external HDD will be connected with an USB cable. If you were to accidentally unplug the usb cable then your whole system would crash.

External Segate 200 GB SATA Hardisk (USB 2.0 connection to PC)


I appears the volume may have been corrupted. YOu should run data recovery on the drive if you need any of the content. If not reformatting the drive, should restore it. If the contents are not important, or you have it backed up, go ahead and connect it to the MACINTOSH and format it for MS-DOS.

Unless it is physically damaged ( clicking, beeping, knocking ) it shoud be usable.


Hope this helps.
