Hallo guys, i am new user here, how are you guys....
Two months ago just got the Toshiba Canvio Basics (portable hdd) 1TB (new)
The problems i found :
- When the hdd got heavy load (copy alot/big files) the hdd always disconnect and reconnected again
- Some time while copying, the hdd got tickling sound
- several time scan got error but repaired.
- 2-3 times my camera video mts file got corrupted. ( important problem for me )

Checked with Hdtune pro and Sentinel scanning found no bad sector and every thing seem ok, health check all no problems.
What do you guys think if i can RMA the drive ?

Thks for your time

As this is an external, and your HD tests turned up empty, I'd be inclined to look at the computer/motherboard over the hard drive. I've had probably as many problems with USB ports going bad as hard drives, especially (for whatever reason) the front ports on computers. How old is the computer?

id back up your files now if you are still using it, your hdd will be under warranty its not even a year old.
get another one, intermittent ticking sounds could mean the disc is slowly getting stuck.
2-months old i get a replacement asap.

My system specs quiet old indeed, maybe got incompatible problems ?
Several times updated the USB 3 driver but to no avail.
- Gigabyte 1155 B75 chipset pairing with I5 3570
- USB 3 - 2 PORT
- SATA3 - SSD 240GB
- SATA2 - HDD int - 2TB & 1TB
- PSU - iCUTE 450 WATTS
- GTX 750Ti
I hv tried plug the ext hdd to the USB2 port, but the problem still there.

Thks for the help.

do you edit your video files on the external hdd? i think your seagate ones is overheating and i dont think it is a good idea, try just using it just for file transfers
