Clackety Clackety Clack


Recommended Posts

I brought a 350Gb USB external HDD with me to LoS with my MP3 collection; some TV recordings and a few films and old pics. All was going fine until this morning when I powered up to listen to some sounds and the HDD simply starts to spin then ''çlicks''.


Does anyone know if there's anywhere in Pattaya where someone will attempt to open a drive and see if it's merely a stuck arm, without charging a small fortune?

i to had the same,if i use my external hd somewhere at los it clicks.

u should give it external power,or connect with special usb cable where there are 2 usb connectors on.

the output from some usb ports is limited and can not feed the external drive tru the usb port.

Georg, if you do not find one here is a trick that worked for me. You will need another HD to move the stuff on to. Put the old one in a plastic back and seal it carefully, then put it into a freaser. Let it stay there for a day, take it out and let it dry carefully. Conect it and see if it works and move all the stuff over to the new disk.


It has also worked for me to put it on a oven (the kind you use to heat your house) and let it warm there. The diffrence in tempature seems to jump start them so I could at least save the material on the HD . The old ones even still works but I do not trust them.


P.s Saw on Talk that you got a "new" laptop. Did this hapen at the same time? Do you have two laptops? Is it the same on both of them? Try to conect it to a desktop if you can and see if if it works there.


P.p.s Mr. sponge. This is surly a 3.5" HD with external power. With the smaller 2.5" ones, remember to always use the thicker cable first if there are 2 connectors

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
