Hi, i have an intermitent ringing tone coming from my external hardrive, sounds like a telephone noise.
I have connected to my laptop & the ringing stops but laptop does not recognise it, not even in My Computer file.
Any suggestions would be gladly appreciated as this is a 500gb HD & i have about 300gb of my photo's,video's & music on there.
Thanks in advance

Pc files inspector is a free program for data recovery, Recuva is another. It sounds like the hard drive is malfunctioning and you need to get the data off it, if possible.

Thanks HopperRox, will give it a try.
Just wish i knew what the ringing sound was, it's obviously a warning system
for malfunction of some sorts but i can't seem to find anywhere over the internet.
Thanks again for your quick response :)
