Question about GTech G-Tech G-Drive Combo 500GB Professional Strength Storage Solutions 500 GB FireWire 400 (1394a) Hard Drive

1 Answer

Double Image of my hard drive appears on desk top.

I am using an Apple power book pro and a G Tech 500 mini hard drive. This morning I started up and 2 icons for the G Tech appeared on my desk top instead of one. Is this a prelude to a crash?
I tossed one image and am now working but this is the second time now this has happened in 3 days.

Lost install disk for Mac book pro My 13" Mac book


You will need some install disks to even begin working on your issue.
Your options:
  • Find someone with the same model MacBook Pro and borrow the disks.
  • Buy a copy of Leopard (10.5) or Snow Leopard (10.6) and use them. If you are going to buy a set you might as well update to Snow Leopard (10.6)
  • Check eBay for install disks but make sure they are for the same model MacBook Pro.
  • Contact an Apple service center and purchase a replacement set of install disks.
Once you have a install CD, I would recommend backing up your system by making a disk image of the hard drive to an external drive. Then doing a clean install and then using the Migration Assistant to restore your user files to the clean install on your hard drive.

My G-tech Gmini 500g won't mount on the desktop but it mounts on disk utility.


Hi, if you can see the drive in Disk Utility, is the volume appear greyed out? If so, then it sounds like the directory has been damaged, which usually is caused by disconnecting a drive improperly or losing power. DiskWarrior is a utility that can often repair a damaged directory and allow the drive to mount.

My WD passport 149G drive that does not appear under My Computer was I set up, what's going on here...


There are several reasons this can happen, first you may not have the cables all plugged in, double check to be sure. Second you may not be getting power, is the light on? Third the circuitry in the enclosure may be failed, when you plug in the drive do you see anything trying to install? Fourth the drive may be failed/failing, in this case you may need a pro.

Reply back with the above info and I can offer you some more assistance in narrowing the problem down.

Hello, hope you can help. Daughter turned on her


It means that the computer can't find the hard drive portion that starts the computer into OS X. It usually indicates a dead hard drive, though sometimes it can be fixed by running your OS X install disk and using the repair function on it. If you don't feel comfortable doing this, find a good repair tech on Craigslist or through your local search.

Lacie 500gb external drive


The disks inside the HD are not spining. The creaking noise is the HD trying to start. Next time when it does start transfer all the files ASAP cause your drive is about to die.

My drive won't start up


Don't use a power strip or surge protector.... try to connect the power supply adapter directly to a wall socket. Always safely remove hardware after use

80 gb hard drive from apple pro book does not work


Try using Disk Utility to mount the drive. This can be found in the Utilities folder within the main applications folder. Launch Disk utility and see if the drive comes up in the list of drives down the left hand side. I presume that the hard drive in the enclosure is spinning. You can normally hear it, and feel a constant light vibration.

Yup, I'm afraid the only known solution is to return to an earlier version of the opertating system. I suspect that if you recall - the item disappeared after a security update. Shame eh! Robin
