Question about G-Technology G-Drive Combo - 500GB FireWire 400 and USB 2.0 - Black 90801401B Hard Drive
Hello, I recently tried turning on my G-Drive Combo 500 drive, and I hear a strange sound coming from the unit. It's a repetitious 4-beat tone that runs continuously, and the drive will not boot up as well as mount. I tried changing the power cord, and there was no change. Could you please provide any information that will help correct this problem. The drive is hardly used, but I don't believe it is still covered under the manufacturer's warranty. Thank you very much. Alan
Usually when the drive makes a weird sound it means it's going out .If you can try plugging it into another device and see if it does the same thing . Good Luck

Sounds like the hard drive is having an issue. It may be too late but you can try to freeze your hd and recover the data.

It sounds like the drive is not completing the connection. First, try restarting your computer. Then, try another port or cable, or connect to another computer. Another possibilty is a damaged directory, this will be apparent by the drive showing in Disk Utility, but the volume name is greyed out or generic. If so, then DiskWarrior can often repair damaged directories and allow the drive to mount.
