I have a Samsung G2 320gb HDD, which has and still is working fine for a few months now but all of a sudden it keeps on making a very soft beeping sound every second or so, when it makes the sound the led light also goes off, when i go to my computer and click properties it now tells me that its only a 3GB HDD, but the drive still works fine, is there a problem with the drive????

Please Help,

Many Thanks,
Craig.

I've never had one beep, click maybe. Not absolutely sure but I would back up any needed data as soon as I could as I am thinking it is failing. Is this the original drive for the computer? If not how old, under warrenty? If you still can I would take it back to where I got it for a replacement. If not I would start shopping for a new one. In any case back all the data you can.

If this is the portable usb drive you may look here

for the diagnostic utility for it. It may be able to tell you something.
