I have had 3 external harddrives so far.Fujitsu ones.I bought one a trademe .My dad bought me one and had a replacement one from the guy who i bought from at trademe.

The problem is I screw the harddrive into the case so that I can use it as an external usb harddrive.The blue light of the usb case lights up but the harddrive doesn't spin make any noise and the computer won't detect.

All 3 external harddrive has been like this.Is this normal or is the harddrive broken?

I lined the pins with the case slotted into the container case and screw the drive in to place.Plug it into the computer.Blue light of usb case lights up.But no response from the computer.Tried it with windows xp and windows 98se.Both did the same thing.The light is shining bright blue but the harddrive seems to be having a big sleep

Try the drive(s) in your PC first. If its still not working - they're stuffed. Fujitsu is a bad brand.
