1T keep mounting and disconnecting

Dear Support,

My drive two days ago disconnect while downloding a file and I was unable to reconnect device.

When I try to connect I hear a random noise like a blinking, and it keep connecting and disconnecting from windows .

Today after some some time the drive mount on windows and I could see all my file, I try to backup it, but after several second the transfer rate fall and the HD disconnected.

Now it keeps disconnecting and riconnecting the same sintom as before I don’t things I am still in RMA.

Iwould love t backup it but I see an horrible destiny.

tahnks for reply

Internal WD Caviar green 1TB.

I am out of RMA so I don’t know if I can get support.

Is the telephone support  number in US ?

I’ve ran into this before and changing the SATA cable fixed the problem. However, my disk did not have any odd noises and a perfectly fine SMART.
