I just got an Elements SE 1 TB HD yesterday for Christmas and when I first plugged it in, it seemed to work fine and was recognized by the computer. I tried to do a backup and it failed because of a Windows 7 error. After some trials with WIndows, I unplugged the drive and plugged it back in. On doing this, the drive started making clicking sounds and took a while to be found as a USB device and to be installed, but did install. On opening my computer, it failed to show my Elements drive listed as a drive. It was listed under devices and was under the device manager. I just have no way to access the drive.
I have tried to restart the computer, reformat the drive and have had no luck. I am starting to think that it is a malfunction with the drive, but I am not sure. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.
