My WD25001032-001 is on, but it will not connect to the pc (not showing in Explorer either).


The clicking noise is a mechanical failure caused by the read/write arm making contact with the spinning disk or catching on something it shouldn't.

Check the warranty status at:WD Support Warranty RMA Services

If the drive is out of warranty, and you have important data on the drive, and you can't afford to send it to a company to retrieve your files and have tried absolutely everything to get get it off, you can try this: Put the drive (and silicon packs in there if available to absorb moisture) in an air-tight ziplock bag. Place it in the freezer wrapped in a towel for a few hours. (Chilling the drive makes the metal inside the drive contract enough for the arm to function properly)
Remove from the freezer and immediately attach to the computer. If detected, transfer files immediately. The drive will heat up quickly and the mechanical failure will return.

Only thing you can do at this juncture is remove the drive from the external case and hook it up as a slave to your main computer. Boot your machine up (cross your fingers) and using windows explorer locate and transfer over any files you want to the main drive that you booted up from. Do it as quickly as you can since your drive id dying. Do not perform any diagnostics on it since that procedure alone often kills the drive completely and you are really then out of luck.

And if your computer will not tolerate its presence try doing the same procedure on another machine since all computers are different and react differently to different situations - u might get lucky and fine one that will allow you to transfer your important files.

My emachine w3115 comes on but,will not display anything on the desktop. can not do a reboot on it and it wont run any disk . all i have is a background picture,


Press CTRL + ALT + DEL - the Task Manager should appear. If it does then click File, New Task (Run) and type explorer then hit enter, it should return to normal.
If the Task Manager doesn't appears or Explorer doesn't starts then the system is severely corrupted, you will have to reinstall Windows using the recovery cd.

I have the Lacie Minidisk Ethernet 500 GB that contains all my house PC backup. I both an USB Minidisk Lacie (1 GB) in order to use MySafe feature but it never worked.


Hello Elio,

Use MySafe to back up the files stored on the Ethernet Disk mini Home to an attached USB storage device. This way, if files on the Ethernet Disk mini are damaged or accidentally deleted, you can restore them to their original locations.
There are three main steps to using MySafe,Connecting an external USB hard drive,Backing up files to the external USB hard drive,Restoring files to the Ethernet Disk mini (if necessary)
Before you can back up files, you need to connect a hard drive to your Ethernet Disk mini via the USB port on the back. Use a hard drive that is USB 2.0 compatible.
While connecting an external hard drive make sure your Ethernet Disk mini is turned on and connected to your network.Turn on the external USB hard drive.Connect the external hard drive's USB cable to the USB port on the back of the Ethernet Disk mini, just like you would connect the external hard drive to your computer.Confirm that the drive is properly connected. Log in and click on the Administer HipServ link. Click on USB External Storage under System.
To back up files, navigate to the file or folder you want to back up to the external hard drive and click on the disk icon in the "Backup" column of the file list.When you back up files to MySafe, the Ethernet Disk mini duplicates the file path in MySafe so that everything you back up is organized in MySafe just as in its original location. So, if you copy a file from MyLibrary, a MyLibrary folder will appear in MySafe, with all folders leading to the backed up file.

Always click the Safely Remove Drive button on the USB External Storage before unplugging your MySafe external hard drive. Wait for the interface to change and for the Use Drive button to appear before disconnecting the USB cable from the Ethernet Disk mini. Failure to safely remove your external hard drive before disconnecting the USB cable can cause data loss and/or damage the drive. Always use the Safely Remove Drive feature when disconnecting an external hard drive.

The HDD makes a tic tic sound when connected to the computer but doesn't appear in the explorer.....


When a hard disk makes a clicking sound and the computer does not detect it then the hard disk is faulty. This is commonly known as "The click of death".
There is no way of fixing this hard drive, if you need to recover your data, then there are companies that can recover data off faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

Hey there. I have a problem with an external harddrive. "My Passport Essential". When I connect it to my compute sometimes nothing happens and sometimes "Local Disk (E:)" shows up in my...


The problem might be a loose connection or bad configuration file (an autostart ini file that makes the hard-drive do certain things when plugged in) in the root folder of your hard drive. Are you able to connect to it sometime or it doesn't work at all? If you can read it, try backing up all your data and format the hard drive and copy back the backup again. But remember to copy only the needed files and not the system or ini files.

My acer ZG5 does not start up there is a black screen and a message stating that there is no bootable device and to insert boot disk and press any key; I don't have a boot disk so how can I fix my problem....


The bootable device is your laptop's hard drive. This meesage usually appears when the hard drive has crashed or the Master Boot record is damaged. you can repair this if you see message that gives you an option to recover your hard drive, try turning off then turning on the laptop to see the option appear during the boot process. But the catch here is that you might not recover your personal files after the recovery. If you have important files in your Hard drive bring the laptop to a qualified technician to recover your files.
