I'm a little unclear as to the problem. I don't understand what you mean by hear a sound when turn off and doesn't show. Does this mean you can't access the drive, or when you turn it off and then turn it back on or reconnect it doesn't show the drive? Do you have 2.0 USB ports in your machine? Be a little more specific please?

Fantom Drive stopped working


Hi. If they check that properly that's mean that you have to replace electronic part of you hard drive. Easiest way is to buy broken one with working electronic and then replace it. This is difficult but its only way to recover your data from drive. If you are lucky you can try remove that unknown drive from system and than plug you hard drive again but to different USB port.

Fantom 120GB HARD DRIVE BLINKS RED& BLUE LIGHTS WITH SOUND


Sounds like your drive is trying to recalibrate itself which is what the clicking noise is. This is similar to the post routine for your motherboard when you boot up to ensure everything is operating properly. You indicated the drive may have suffered some physical damage and this is a result of that. Probably a head crash and one of the heads is damaged or the calibration track is damaged. Try switching the heads with another drive of the same model. If it comes up (calibrates) get your data off fast and consider yourself lucky. If it doesn't come up then it is dead. You can call one of the repair services listed on the net or try contacting the manufacturer for their opinion. Good luck, but I think you have a very serious problem.

Unusual sounds, doesn't show up in My Computer


The hard drive is damaged my friend. Hard drives are very,very, very delicate pieces of equipment. The disk is paper thin and any sudden jarring, sometimes can occur in transit and especially dropping it creates a warp in the drive. Unplug it to prevent further damage. Don't worry in many cases you can have the data retrieved from your hard drive by using this online company that I highly recommend:

Problem with my PC recognizing my external hard drive


If you know the files are there and the drive cannot be read then there must be a read error, the only other thing to try is a different usb or firewire port as the port itself may not be reading the drive. Try it first by putting in a different port while the pc is on then plugging in and then restarting if the device is not recognised. You may also try the drive in a friends pc to see if it is port trouble and not the drive

Fantom Drive TFDU16072A Error


2009 06 30 - I just had a similar problem. The Fantom external drive was working fine, but I had to shut down due to a thunderstorm. When I restarted the PC, the drive was not showing up. WHAT I FOUND: First, I didn't find this solution anywhere - everything seemed to point to a new install (or at least how to reformat and start over.) BUT, I right clicked on Computer, Manage, Disk Management - it still didn't show. On the right, under More Actions, I clicked 'rescan disks'. Now it shows up! And all of my data is right there. Whew!
