Hello,

It sounds like your problem is in the power adapter. Youshould be able to hear and feel the drive spinning when you turn it onif the power supply was working. There are replacement cases availablethat you can put your drive in that should get it back online. Youshould be able to open the external case and remove the drive. If youhave a desktop PC available you should also be able to connect thedrive to one of the hard drive controllers in the PC and access yourdata that way. If you check our site at: www.ccl-la.com We have a product review on an external case we use that works great. The case will work with either a SATA or IDE drive.

I hope this helps, If so please rate my solution.

Are there any musical toys that are educational?


The Educational Toys Planet website has a really good range of musical toys for kids that have educational content. I think their stuff is a really good balance between teaching kids something about music but also making it fun.

If you just bought it then return it immediately. The warranty will cover it. If you bought it used you can (at your own risk) try to clean the contacts for the shutter button per link...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tB_gSqyidI0

TV wont turn on, makes buzzing noise and shuts off


I have two RCA HD52W59 TV's. I have had one for 3 years and one 4 years. The one I have had for 4 years is giving me the problem. Last week the tv turned off while watching it. It wouldnt come right back on. 10 minutes later we tried and it worked fine. the other night the kids were watching and it turned off and smelled like something burning. I tried turning it right back on and got no power at all. I tried to turn it on two days later and it made a buzzing noise and the green light went out. Never did get a picture, no powering up on the screen. Any ideas? Don't want to spend alot of money. Really loved the TV hope it isnt junk now. Better yet I hope the same thing doesnt happen to the other one I have.

Have a digital camera/mp3 player 44090/44091/44092/44093 have installed software but when we plug it in to usb slot doesnt register on comp. cannot transfer music etc. running windows vista please help...


I have fixed our problem! Hope this helps you out. I downloaded a manual for the 44090 model.
Make sure that you don't have it plugged into the usb port and the player is switched to mp3 mode. Open the software and then when it says to plug it in now, you need to turn the player into music mode. Press and hold for 3 to 4 seconds the centre power/play/pause button. It will start the red light flashing. Once the light is flashing it is in music mode. Plug in to the usb port and the computer should recognise it bringing up the install now button for the software. Click 'install now' and it should work.
I don't use the software to load songs I just use windows media player and once I had passed this install now bit media player recognised it instantly.
Everytime you want to listen to music you need to put the player into music mode by holding down that button till the red light flashes. Once music is loaded on it starts playing as soon as that red light starts flashing!
Good luck and I really hope this works out for you too.

It's probably just the mp3 player's malfunctioning on you...something must have happened during shipping and handling to the store you got it from.
