The blinking red light on PS3 is known to occur when something as
simple as a misplaced connection occurs. It could also mean that the
PS3's hard drive is malfunctioning or not functioning at all. You can
take the following steps to identify and perhaps correct the problem.
Check to ensure that all cables are properly and securely connected. If
this doesn't solve the problem, try reinstalling the hard drive as
Physically remove the hard drive from the PS3 console. Dust off the
connectors, and gently and carefully replace it into the PS3. Very often
this simple removal and replacement will fix the blinking red light
problem. It may be necessary to remove and replace the hard drive
If this does not work the blinking red light can only be inicative of a chronic overheating problem and will nead to be sent to sony for repairs.
Go to BIOS and check whether the harddrive is detecte in BIOS.If it is not detected then the harddrive is either missing or there is a problem with the hard drive connection.Reconnecting the same may resolve the issue
take your harddrive to someone who has a linux operating system. have them open terminal and perform a dmesg. if the linux system recognizes the harddrive, have them perform a mount. if unsucessful have them perform a foced filesystem fix. then have them attempt to mount the clean filesystem if this is a nogo, your harddrive is deader than dead. if the linux user can mount the filesystem, he or she can pull your data and save your life. if not, then uhh you lost your data im afraid.
Take it our of the external encasing and plug it in directly to your motherboard. This has worked for me in the past. I just had my second wd external harddrive crash so now I will do the same process all over again.
just plug the old hard drive into your new system insuring that the setting of the jumpers on the old harddrive are set to slave. then when you boot up your system your operating sustem will detect the old harddrive and then you can access if in the my computer folder. In order to keep the the operating system working in the old harddrive do not delete any system files just delete the data you copied in to the harddrive, to be safe do not delete anything in the windows folder in the old harddrive
I've actually no idea but instead of troubleshooting it you might want to try to reconnect it by following this guide: [url=http://download.adaptec.com/pdfs/user_guides/acs_100_ug.pdf]ACS 100 User Guide[/url].
