Question about Ultra 1 Bay USB 2.0 External Drive Case

1 Answer

Rock Mobile external hard drive was accidentaly dropped

Hard drive is now making a noise. It sounds like when you enter a CD in a drive and the machines rejects it and kicks it back out. The computer no longer recognizes the drive and I cannot access my files. I don't know if this has to do with a jumped needle.

Well it has been cause a mischief that's for sure. Try dismantling the case to check the connectors but that is about all you can do - if the drive is done then it stays done there is no repair option

My external hard drive os gives a clicking sound

It sounds as though you have software incompatibility problem. With a bit of good fortune, Microsoft can diagnose the problem( s) and fix it in three easy clicks and it's free. CLICK HERE

If that doesn't do the job, you'll have to format the hard drive. Hopefully, you've been backing up everything on the external drive because the formatting process erases everything.

Hi! I have a Rock Mobile External 250gb hard drive that I have reformatted for my MacBook Pro computer. I have used it for about 6 months now. One day I noticed when I turn on the power it took longer and...

Its in your logic board controller issue, usually the problem is like that but to see what is the another problem of your External Drive is to make or use any diagnostic freeware program to identify the device where it really connected in your PC. I have also encountered like your problem but I send my External to Electronic Tech to check the power connection and controller connection going to PC. Because you said that the hard Drive is still have a normal sound then it is working then but cannot see in your Computer. Try to Diagnose first before you bring to a Technician. Good luck!

Toshiba external hard drive 1TB USB 2.0


I talked to the customer service of the brand. They know what's related to the noise the HD does right now: real damage. The best thing to do is to switch it off and bring it to a professional data recovery place, which is what I will do next week.

Thank you anyway for your help. I don't need further assistance on this issue.



Beeping sound

Sounds like the motor got stuck.
Is it melody-like beeping?
Anything similar to these: http://datacent.com/hard_drive_sounds.php

I have a rock mobile 3.5" mobile drive model #hd2-u2

I beleive you may have damaged the HD itself. The case only contains the lights, and the power supply.
The only other way to test it would be to take it out and install it on your desktop as a slave to see if it comes up.
i feel fro you I also had an Ultra external HD 60G and burnt it by using the wrong ac adapter.

Lightly Dropped Seagate 100GB External Hard Drive

Unfortunately, this probably means the read/write heads were jarred and can no longer function properly. That's usually fixable, but it's a very expensive fix because the parts are inside the hard drive and the data surfaces are very delicate... Most people are better off simply replacing the hard drive unless the data is absolutely vital.
