Al Tech Mediagate MG350D

I just got this unit two days ago. First night it booted ok but last night I just got the blue light flashing. Apparently this has something to do with corrupt firmware. Any ideas how one can fix this, reload the firmware or whatever one can do.I suppose I'll have to send the unit back to get fixed or replaced, but what if the same happens in the future? It seems a lot of people experienced this problem with this unit. Any ideas or help will be appreciated. I read one comment which says one can reload the firmware using some serial connection which I can see in the box.

Keep hitting the TV video button, it's probably just booted in the wrong video mode.

Might need to hit it a dozen or so times until it comes back on the screen

It wasn't a malfunction of the simple tech unit, the problem was with the computer itself. I finally re booted the computer and the problem resolved itself. Thank you for being there and I learned a bit out of the experience (I am new to mac's)

Simpletech external simple drive model 96300-40001-001--flashing blue light

do you mean that you used this as a "Data" drive and do not have the data stored on your pc...

that is basically the same as having no backup... if it is important, store the data in more than one location.

it is possible that a power surge killed the usb adapter on your storage device.... you may be able to transplant the HDD onto a working adapter or USB->HDD bridge to get your data back

Device not recognized on any pc

My 4Gb Cruzer stopped being recognized on any computer last night. I put it in and it flashes once and never mounts. I called SanDisk tech support and they recommended calling LC Technologies to retrieve data.
I put a call into LC Tech and spoke with Ray, who was very friendly and all to familiar with this problem with the Cruzer. From what he told me the USB ports are highly unregulated at 5v and most likely the circuit board in the flash drive that allows for reading the data was damaged. He said the only option at this point was to send them the drive and they would pull the memory chip to try and recover any data. The bad news is that it comes with a $125 charge if they are successful on devices over 1Gb. He stated they had about a 80% recovery rate.

WD MyBook World Edition 500GB Model: WD5000G032

I had the same problem as everyone else here - blue rings go out and then - nothing.  I called WD's data recovery partners and got quotes from $700-$1500 to recover the data because it is a network device!  Thanks Kellydam for the first clue.  I took my MyBook apart (start with rubber seal around the edges, then "unhook" it top and bottom on front of device by inserting a flat tip screwdriver through middle slot).  I purchased a Gigaware SATA enclosure and pluged it in to my computer.  Nothing.  I didn't get access to my files until I used Explore2fs to view the ext3 file system.

LaCie 250GB Ethernet Disk Mini (300938U) Won't Power Up

External drives of this type are usually internal drives with case power supply etc. You should be able to open the box remove hard drive connect as a 2nd hard drive to PC either sata or ide depending on drive PC should recognise drive at boot up then you can access files and back up to CD, DVD, hard disk. If you are not comfortable doing this usually local PC repair shop will do for small charge. Assuming of course that the hard drive itself is not dead, just the power supply for the external case.
Hope this helps
