Try it on a different computer if possible. If it shows up, run chkdsk /f on it from the command prompt. If chkdsk /f fixes corruption, try it then on your Tosh laptop. There is a space between CHKDSK and /F

Constant beeping from Cavalry external HD

Can't say exactly what it means technically speaking, but my experience with such a problem is that the drive is 'dead'. Of course trying it on another computer would be constructive.

My computer accesses the file on the external hard drive, starts to download the information, then my computer freezes. The only way to get out is to power down, holding the computer button down till

maybe the file is corrupt or has a virus. Do full virus scan on freshly rebooted computer. try starting the PC in safe mode (F8 when booting) and open the file. do other files of the same type open up ok?

My Cavalry 1TB USB 2.0

Hey Jeff, Sounds like this is something with info you need to keep..Keeping/securing/BACKING UP your data is your priority!! Personally, I would find a QUALITY (ASK a lot of questions.. can they guarantee their work,,- and NOT LOSE your data..!!) .. skip the geek squad - .. computer repair shop..(or some 10 year old).. I would first see if they could copy this drive to another drive (solid state) so you will not lose your data... we are at 4.0 with USB now... 2.0 is becoming the "floppy" of today..I have 3.0 drives and feel left out.. again.. securing/copying/backing up your data is paramount.. Good luck,,,

500G Cavalry CAUE37500 Drive intermittently recognized

Keep them in the freezer for 3 hours and connect to your system and transfer your data. If drive starts behaving like this, it means you have to transfer the data.

My black calvary external hard drive won't turn on.

Would be great if the next time you also place the model number, because Cavalry makes dozens of different drives. When the bleu light does not go on, you have to assume the drive is not getting power. If the drive has only one cable, (small drives like 2,5 inch most of the time only have one cable) it could be the USB cable is defect and can't give through the 5 Volt coming from the computer USB connector. It also could be the 5 Volt supposed to be in the computer has gone. If you have to connect an external power supply, with a small cable to the drive, I would check the power supply. A 5 Volt 2 A supply, with the round plug can't be that expensive. If both don't work, it also could be inside the housing of the drive is something defect. If you need to have the data on the drive, you always could but an universal USB connection for hard drives. I have one for IDE and E-SATA, in the box came a set power cables and a power supply, but that one was almost 50 dollar. There are cheaper ones on the net. Be aware drives don't live forever and make sure you always have at least two backups. (that is more than one origin; and one back up)

Solid red light. Does not show up on my

Dose it show up as drive letter E:/ underdevice manager in disk drives?(Check out:right clicking my computer icon onyour desktop,select disk manager)
If so,try right clicking on my computer and selecting map network drive.(You'llget the same results by right clicking on network neighborhood icon on yourdesktop and selecting map network drive.)This is the method many people use toassign a drive name (i.e.,letter) to a drive.
How about asking you to format it before you can use it?Then you can recover data from hard drive with datarecovery software like Tenorshare Data Recovery.It can recover data afterdeeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data.
