Hi please help.
i have a freecom 80 gb external hardrive & my computers wont recognise it. it has been working fine & i have some important work on it i need to retrieve. if you put it to your ear whilst plugged in it makes a clicking sound so i fear the worst. is there any way ( if it is knackered ) to get the files off ???
best regards
Jonathan

do other usb items work ok? if this is the only one try uninstalling in device manager then reboot and let windows re install?

hi the other usb items work fine. ive tried it on more than one computer but the clicking still continues. i have never installed this device, it just plugs in & away you go ( when its not clicking ) im baffled how to get the files off it
