Question about Hitachi Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My 4gb Hitachi Microdrive (for my Nikon camera) stopped working.. No noise, no high-pitched whine, just would not be accessed. I have had a demo version of "Photorescue" running on it for about 16 hours, using several Recovery methods, but the software is continuing to give "READ ERROR at 2627071 READ-1: the device is not ready" (I just inserted one of the many location numbers). The Photorescue software is now reading sector 5,254 and continuing. Am I wasting my time? The camera will not read the drive either, the USB port and Cable will read other USB drives. Have I just lost a day's worth of Thanksgiving Family Gathering pictures, and I should toss this drive and move on?

No Solution for me or my Microdrive. I tossed $20.00 away with no joy. The Technician was pleasant, and stepped through the things I had done. No fixYa for me. And yet, you want me to invest in the Premium Assistance plan?

Whining noise on 2002 chevy tracker, comes and goes


Could be your alternator or a bad idler pulley. Is the transmission good? It may be the tranny or your differential whining.

I have a hitachi 4gb microdrive with 1 corrupted file. There is over 300 pictures and I can't download them because it gets to that one corrupt file and stops. How do I resolve this. Thanks for the help.


You could try using a card reader instead of the camera to download to a folder you create on your desktop. Once there, you can delete the corrupted file.

There is some annoying noise coming out everytime i use the sb-600 flash!


If it is a whining noise that increases in pitch, that is the capacitor that powers the Xenon strobe that is in the flash. The whine might be a little less with fresh batteries, but it is normal and unavoidable.

My NIKON D70 has trouble with flash cards larger than 2 G.


The D70 has known issues with certain cards / capacities. Nikon has identified the cards and capacities that are guaranteed to work with the D70 specifically, on their page dedicated to this info linked below:

http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/9601

It seems that only Lexar and Microdrive cards that are 4Gb are supported (some with significant limitations) and no card greater than 4Gb is supported at all, regardless of manufacturer.

Weird noises in drive and reverse


The high pitched whine in reverse sounds normal for a honda. Ever honda I have had makes a similar noise while in reverse. The spinning, scraping noise in drive is not normal. You might want to see a mechanic about that.
