Question about SimpleTech Computers & Internet
Last night the hard drive was working and i had some one add a couple of movies to it. now the hardrive is not showing on my computer. it blinks blue makes a noise like its trying to load and then a red light blinks. is the hard drive shot???
It is not necessarily the hard drive itself that has failed. More likely it is the enclosure and the hardware within in that enables you to access the device. The only way to know for sure, is to connect the hard drive inside your PC and see if you can access it. If it accesses fine when inside your PC, you should be able to buy a new enclosure for your drive and be back up and running with very little effort. If the drive cannot be accessed when hooked up inside your PC, it is unfortunately dead.
