Question about Sony Computers & Internet
SOURCE: SimpleDrive External Hard Drive
A Purchased Externa HD should be formatted for PC 32bit therefore readable univerally in any PC system but it will not read in a Mac. The would have to be formatted for Mac and will then only read in a Mac. So you decided where you want the drive to go .PC or Mac and we will take it from there

I have the 250 GB Acomdata drive. Had the exact same problem--computer would not recognize drive; blue light on drive lit and drive making a slight whirring/clicking noise. I read somewhere that some people that have had this problem have found the problem is with the USB interface between the drive and case, NOT with the drive itself. I took the drive out of its case and installed it in a desktop computer and was able to get all of the data off of the drive.

As both Western Digital and Iomega have not made much news about these two devices, I had not realized they existed. They would be the best solution for you. Just make sure you convert the video into the correct format.

Usually a protected hard drive has been in a laptop and the hard drive password is setup from the laptop's BIOS configuration. This password is embedded on the hard drive's chip.
This password protects the data from unauthorized access and must be removed before reuse in another laptop or as an external hard drive.
There are no backdoor passwords available and needs to be removed using that laptop's BIOS configuration, you need to know the password to enable you remove the password peotection.
