My hard drive is making a strange noise when it is used. It sounds like a heartbeat and it occurs in a random time interval. I know it isnot much to start with but i cannot say anything else about it then...


Hi,
Any strange noise like excessive clicking, grinding, some weird sounds etc. actually indicate a failing hard drive.
Failing hard drives often show warning signs of their imminent demise. If you're lucky enough to see or hear one of these signs, stop what you're doing and immediately back up your data. They say prevention is better than cure so if your computer's hard disk is making some strange clicking sounds, BACK UP YOUR DATA IMMEDIATELY (As the drive is not operating smooth and may fail anytime).
After making backup of your important data on CD/DVD or External Drive, you may scan the drive for surface errors, format it and see if it works properly or not. It would be better if you seek professional assistance for examination of the disk.

Hard drives are mostly under warranty for at least one year. Claim warranty, if possible.
Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

500gb Iomega External HD began making a strange whirring noise about 6 months from the date of purchase and now my pc doesn't even recognize it as being there. I can't get to any of my pictures and music.


the drive is failing,its hard to recover something (15% recovery is me being optimistic) you can try using recuva as a last ditch attempt to get your files (http://www.piriform.com/recuva). best of luck :)

I have a philips external hard drive - I use it on an IMac and also Windows Vista and XP. I've had it for about 2 years. Yesterday I used it at work on XP and when I got home and tried it on Vista it...


If it's making a strange noise and you really want to keep your data you need the help of a professional. If you are close to Los Angeles I can help you in person, but if not then I would recommend you having a local repair shop take a look at the drive with you there in person. should only take a decent tech 5 minutes to provide a quick diagnosis of the drive.

G tech hard drive not recognized by my macbook pro


Hi Evan
The fact that you have tried all three connectors suggests that the fault lies with the drive. Either the interface board or the HD itself. If you have access
to another computer you should be able to prove it one way or another.
Over the years I have seen many external drives fail (I had two identical drives of my own fail on consecutive days one proved to be the firewire board in the box, the other was the circuit board built into the HD), and it's quite difficult to decide where the fault lies.
Do you hear the HD spinning when it powers up (press your ear against the case)? You should be able to differentiate between the HD and the noise of the fan. Is there any clicking?
Is it still under warranty?
Thinking about it, if you get nothing with the USB and the Firewire then it's a good chance that the HD inside has failed.

Clicking noises and no recognition on computer


The read mechanism is stuck that is it is unable to move to the next section on the magnetic platen disk inside the hard drive \
It has come to the end - of - Life and need replacement.
To recover your data before it completely dies is to put the drive into a usb case and connect it to the computer that has a large capacity drive and backup the drive contents. You will have reload Windows to the new drive.

Strange noises, disk won't fully spin or start up...


Your AC adapter is "dying", and must be replaced.
Is it still under "warranty", i.e., you contact LaCie,
get an RMA (Return Materials Authorization) number,
they ship you a new adapter. If you ship them the old adapter,
within a week, they will _not_ charge your credit-card the $30.

Simpletech hard drive not working


I have that problem similiar to yours. My simple tech stopped working for like two years so i decided to open up my simple tech and removed my HD away from the old enclosure so I can try building my own external hard drive for the first time. I bought another new 3.5 enclosure, IDE/ATA for the old HD. I put it in the new enclosure and it worked!

It's the only solution you can have. No need to retrieve data or re-format your HD. You can leave it the way you like...if you wanna reformat it...up to you.

Lacie 500gb external drive


The disks inside the HD are not spining. The creaking noise is the HD trying to start. Next time when it does start transfer all the files ASAP cause your drive is about to die.

Computer fails to recognise my external hard drive


I would suggest the external casing of the harddisk that contains its power supply is busted, so you need to change the casing or remive the harddisk from the casing and connect in inside
