|First, make sure the hard drive is connected correctly to the computer, make sure all wires are tight and secure, compressed air works wonders to clean out the dust in tiny places, like the pins in a hard drive to make sure data transfers aren't at all interfered. The hard drive could of spun a baring, and crashed itself, or it could of done something to itself. I've never heard of a game alone crashing a hard drive. Does the hard drive make any unusual noises? (clicks, etc.) If so, it's most likely fried. :( If it is... check out newegg.com they have good prices on very good and reliable products, like hard drives. |
Hope this Helped!
