External hard drive noise Tags: Hard Drives Western Digital External Hard Drive Storage Last response: August 19, 2012 2:26 PM in Storage Share zantho67 August 17, 2012 11:32:30 PM Ok, so today I accidentally dropped my external hard drive. T_T It's a western Digital 2.0. With 2 terabytes of storage. It's making this weird noise, that I have not seen anywhere. Here is a video of the noise: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCmRnOs587Y&feature=plcp I'd really appreciate anything to help. I've tried unplugging, ect. Also it shows up in devices and printers. Here is a picture. http://www.flickr.com/photos/84268235@N04/7804828784/in... I have no idea what is wrong I tried what other places have said but they don't work T_T If I have to buy a new one.. then I will, but anything would be great. Thank you.

If it is, you might want to back up all the data on it just in case, but I think that's probably verging on dying. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
