I have around 3-4 years old WDBAAA3200ABK Passport hard drive. It was working fine with Windows XP and Vista, but after I installed Windows 7 It doesn’t work properly - with same hardware…
after I plug It into USB port, hard drive starts TICKING !! Sometimes It eventually opens in Windows, but It doen’t work properly (very slowly or nothing at all - with ticking all the time).
since I know that TICKING isn’t good as It may damage hard drive, what should I do to fix this ?? I’ve updated WD smartwave - nothing better, tried to download firmware for hard drive - couldn’t do it as hard drive won’t be recognized or not working properly
I’ve also tried hard drive on another PC with XP - working perfeclty !!
