first thing to do is check this hard drive on another known to be operational computer system, if it continues to show the red light and chirping, then you need to replace the enclosure with a known to be operational one, take your drive out of yours, install it in another case and retest. if it still chirps you a damaged hard drive. .. usually the case is the not at fault.

Please check CNET, to get an impression about this drive. Than wonder if you should continue with this drive, or look for a return.

Have you tried other USB cables and different USB ports?

Any 12 volt dc 750ma+ power adapter will work.Install the right plug on the end for your external drive. You can go to radioshack and they will have the proper end for your drive. You have to make sure the polarity is right though as it's direct current. The tip or center must be positive. I recommend testing this with a volt meter before plugging it into your drive to ensure proper polarity. I hope this helps you.

If this is an USB external hard drive the try connecting it to another computer.
If it does not work then the hard drive is faulty. All hard drives will eventually fail.
There is no way of fixing this hard drive, if you need to recover your data, then there are companies that can recover data off faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

Having looked at the review of this device, it doesn't sound good. There is a problem with these but if it shows up in explorer you can use it. The other problem is that it is not windows 7 recommended. Have you tried to use it with the firewire connection? You may have better luck, but Windows 7 has to have "Signed Drivers" for all hardware (they have to be vetted by Microsoft) Good luck.
