  1. Hi, everybody

    I got two porblems

    1st - I have a 500gb GB Sata Hard Drive this was inside a Lacie External Drive I purchased, I took it on a buiness trip with me and my once I got back home I plugged it in and it just made a clicking noise. I serched around the internet and tried the freezing trick no luck.

    2nd- I have a 80gb IDE drive it had alot of information on it and it went corrupt, I formatted it and tried to use it but I still encountered problems it would not work, I transferred data over to it and tried loading them it would either dissappear of the drive or would not open and become corrupt.

    Sounds like both are dead - first one definitely more so than the second. Test your 80GB drive with one of the utilities here.

    If both are dead, the solution is simple: buy a new drive.

    try a disk check to verify they format correctly
