I have a 500GB Transcend StoreJet external HDD. The problem is it beeps for long time. When it beeps I can not access the drive. Even sometime I can, I dont see full file listing or empty folder! It just beeps and beeps. Never stops. Sometimes removing the USB cable and attaching it again makes the sound goes away. But it does not work all time.
The hard disk has no warranty. It just expired 2-3 weeks ago.
Why is this happening? Is my drive faulty? If yes how can I fix this?
