Why do I get a clicking sound from my external hardrive?

My Seagate 1TB started doing the same thing before it died. My brother managed to get it working again long enough for me to move all of the files to a Toshiba 1TB solid state external drive. A couple of nice features to the Toshiba are that there is no power adapter (powered by the USB), there are no moving parts, and it is very compact. I slid mine into the space under the laptop stand. You might want to back up all of your data to another location just in case yours is getting ready to die.

I have a Toshiba Desktop Ext Hard Drive PH3100U-1EXB ... i unplugged it from my desktop to plug into my laptop like i have done before but this time it wouldnt load so i tried to eject it but it wouldnt...

but does it still work on the desk top.
if yes, then you have lap top issues, ONLY.
easy ,huh?

try all lap top USB ports no ext. hubs allowed.
what is wrong in the LAP top OS, unstated)

are you using the correct external power adaptor for both Desk and lap top usage,
have you tried a diff. usb cable.
Laptops can not power the hdd via the USB at all, and in fact
should be avoided at all times. no matter.
the laptop can be infected.
the laptop might have USB issues, with drivers.
do a USB driver update. (no 0S stated)
does the HDD show up in Disk manager, as DISK2
can you set the drive letter?
can you set the volume label on this disk via DM?
if yes, you then can read and write the drive.
as stated on all pages for USB
disconnect all other USB devices, and now try this HDD.
do a full virus scan, and malware scan
do wInDoZ update.
I think i hit them all.

Hi t rope
It sounds like your hard drive may be faulty, you can try another usb lead to see if this is the problem, otherwise the drive or enclosure may be faulty. Hope this helps.

I recently purchased a Toshiba Desktop External Hard Drive, Part # PH3200U-1EXB. The drive will not stay turned on for more that a few minutes. What gives?

The rason why the drive doesnt remain turned on for more than five minutes is that because it is opeariting in power save mode.
This is to save the power consumption of the hard drive.
Do the following steps. >>Open start menu and type in "power options"binesheb.jpg
>>click on change plan settings binesheb_0.jpg

>>click on change advanced power setting binesheb_1.jpg

>>select the hard disk binesheb_2.jpg
>>click on settings and adjust the time as your wish binesheb_3.jpg

>>click on ok and save your settings

Formatting an external hard drive

Open up Folder Options\View\Show Hidden Files and Folders. Return to your Toshiba HDD. Do you see an hidden files? If so, try to delete them. You may have to change the Properties of these Folders\Files in order to delete them. BE WARNED, removing or deleting any folders or files that Toshiba placed in there could have negative affects on the way your external HDD runs.

Hi there,

You need to install the hard drive driver for the PC to recognize it. If you don't have one, just look in the internet for a free driver.
