My "Western Digital External Hard Drive" which is a 400 GB isn't working any more.
I have it pluged in and everything, but when I turn it on, it makes 2 loud clicks then it sounds like it shuts down. Then it stays on, but then I can't shut it down. It doesn't show up in "My Computer".
But if I do have to make a recover, where should I sent it to (cheapest price would be best), or is there programs i can use.
well if it's not being detected most likely you need to send it in if you need the data. Be aware most places want $90-$100+ to diagnos the drive and recover usually runs hundreds to thousands of dollars so you need to decide how important is your data.
oh and the only data recovery place we've ever used was Ontrack....
