Question about Samsung HD502HJ Samsung 500 GIGAByTE SATA DESKTOP STORAGE 7200 RPM 16MB CACHE BA Hard Drive
I can access the drive, running Mac OSX 10.6. But always with the red light, never blue light. I used to have the blue light, but not any more! This drive is set up in an external sabrent case. I know this is a bad sign what can I do? Have run Disk Utility repair, and it ran successfully, but still red light. Always with the red light.
Maybe the detection circuit for the diagnostic lights is faulty, if the disk utility found no issues I would continue using the hardware.
