I updated my specs. Hope I did it right?
Yep specs real good you would be surprised how many post in and one doesn't know really what they are dealing with.
Anyway that drive mate the light flicking on and off like that does not sound real good.
So have you checked in DISKPART to see if it is listed. If you want to do that -
Start > type cmd in the box > right click on the blue box at the the top of the results > click on run as admin > OK you will end up with a screen in black and white > type in diskpart.> then type list disk > enter > you will get a screen like my pic. If the drive is being recognised by the system it will show it up for example like that Disk 4 in my pic - it is an SD card that drive will show up as arounf 3000GB
