how do I fix my external hard drive, because one day I turned it on and the drive was fine, the next day when I turned it on, it kept on flashing blue, does that mean that the drive is dead. Please help me with this.

Depending on your operating system this may vary in windows7 click start control panel you should see system security tab in that back up then windows will ask for a back up DESTINATION location you can select either dvd or another device or

in XP click start all programs accessories system tools you should see back up after the back up finishes windows will tell you your computer back up was successfull
also you could right click on the back up file select properties this will tell you how many GB were used
also you might use the easy transfer

Acomdata Storage... | Answered on Jul 28, 2012


This particular hard drive uses a proprietary power adapter. There have been many people who have asked about it here, yet no one has been able to answer.

The good news is that inside the enclosure is a standard hard drive which is easy to remove and insert into another enclosure. A quick search of Amazon or Tigerdirect will bring up more than 20 external hard drive enclosures for less than $30. Make sure it is the same interface as your hard drive. I believe this one uses an IDE hard drive but it could be SATA.

I would also like to recommend the Cables to Go 30504 USB 2.0 to IDE/SATA Hard drive adapter. It will allow you to externally connect any laptop or desktop hard drive to extract data off of it over USB. It's about $20. I have two of these and they have saved me many times.

You just need to plug one end of the firewire (IEEE 1394) cable into the external hard drive and the other end in the slot on the computer marked IEEE 1394. Sometimes you have a IEEE 1394 slot on the front panel, and sometimes it's just on the back of the PC.

If you find you don't have a firewire (IEEE 1394) port on your PC then you will need to get adapter that will change the firewire to a usb. If you have trouble finding one of those then install a card like this in your desktop:

Good Luck!

If you don't see any screw holes, look around for some rubber feet, chances are the rubber feet are hiding some screws. If you remove those carefully enough, you can easily put them back in. Once all the the screws are removed carefully pry open the case and remove/replace the hard drive inside.

It depends upon where you want to install the hard drive, ie inside your computer as a Boot drive or as a 2nd hard drive (slave) or as an external USB hard drive.
Let me know what you intend to do with this hard drive and I can advise you accordingly.

make sure the lead/s that attach to your hard drive are securely seated
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it

click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or

if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
hope this helps

sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable


just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems

if this fails to fix the problem

type in run "regedit" then press ok then you can see registry editor then locate below key. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11 CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} And remove upper filter and lower filter.


Then restart computer then check.


Also locate the below key and make sure it's value is 3 not 4. HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\services\usbstor make sure start value is 3 not 4


if still no luck
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps
