Hard disk clicks won't spin

Clicking Hard drive 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.

I had a secondary disk ( the fugi), installed in my pc. it worked great then the next time i tried to use it, it wont spin, and is not detected in bios. I put it into an external enclosure, plugged it into...

The disk is finished. The only way you will get the info off it is to put it in a freezer bag and leave it in your fridge for 24 hours. Refit it into the pc and hopefully it will fire up just once to get the data off it. If that does not work then it will need to go to a data recovery company who will remove the disk and get the data off it. It will cost hundreds of pounds to do this though. The word "Backup" comes to mind!!!!

My hard drive wont read it worked before dont know why

A disk-drive has several major components:
* the electronics circuit-board
* the power/data external connectors
* the motor that spins the disk-drive
* the read/write mechanism that moves above the recording surface
* the recording surfaces

No power means no "spin", and nothing happens.

Dead motor means no "spin", and nothing happens.

Dead electronics on the circuit-board means that nothing happens.

Damaged read/write mechanism.

Damaged recording surfaces.

Try to determine if the disk is spinning by listening. If it is not spinning, hold in your hand and "snap" turn your wrist (on the axis of the disk inside) and then retry it. Sometimes this overcomes the stiction in the bearings... also warm the drive a bit... not hot, but warm...

My laptop cannot read my hard disk, why?

* no power reaching the hard-disk
* the "data" cable is no longer connected to the hard-disk and/or to the motherboard
* the "spinning" part of the hard-disk is no longer spinning
* the "electronics" part of the hard-disk has failed.

Take the computer to a qualified computer technician, for trouble-shooting, and possibly a replacement of the disk-drive.

Is the disk-drive still under warranty? If so, exercise the warranty to get a replacement disk-drive.

Dvd player wont read disk

If when you insert the disk you hear a whirring and clicking noise, CD spins, and does not read, then that is a problem with the DVD lens.

The DVD lens try to focus on the DVD track, by moving lens pickup and spinning the disk, but cannot read the tracks because the lens is dirty or defective.

Try first cleaning the lens with a DVD cleaner disk. And also if you can see the lens from the outside try blowing some canned air on it.

If this still does not help, then the lens pickup may be faulty, in this case you often replace the whole DVD drive unit inside the DVD player.
