I have a WD2500JB hard drive. When I connect it, I don't hear it start, I only hear a beep. I guess it's completely dead, but maybe there is a solution, anybody can help?

I have a 1 TB SimpleDrive external USB drive. The drive is now making a repeating, beeping noise, slow and methodical, and it is not recognized by either my MAC or my pc. WHat does the beep-beep-beep mean...


The hard disk inside it doesn't responds to the controller - hardware failure, the disk has failed.
Nothing can fix that, your unit is truly dead and you need a new one.

My hard drive is a wd2500jb and its only giving me 130 gb of space. How do i get the full 250 gb?


Chances are your disk is partitioned. If it's your Operating System drive, you should reformat with your OS disc. If it's just a secondary drive, check in Disk Management (Windows) or Disk Utility (Mac/Linux) and you can re-partition the drive as you desire.
For windows, do search in the start menu search bat to find disk management, and in mac use spotlight to find disk utility.

My WD2500JB stopped working. Makes a click-click-click sound.


Your hard drive is bad. If you are hearing clicking reptitiously it is you head not moving. Sorry about the bad news.

I assume the hard drive is installed inside the desktop computer.
Depending upon the age and make of the motherboard/BIOS, it may not support a hard drive as large as the 250Gb capacity. You maybe able to upgrade the BIOS version to allow it to access the full capacity of this hard drive. Go to the motherboard manufacturer's WEB site to download the latest BIOS firmware.
