You should open the service panel and to find out where does the "beeping" unit located and to remove one of the wires connected to it (the unplugged wire should be insulated). Good luck!

If its in Warranty, and doesn't work with any computer, then you might prefer to send it away to get it fixed. Here's an alternative.
It may be a problem with the power supply to the drive, the USB cable from the drive, or the electronics inside the box, or the drive itself. It's worth working from the outside inwards:
Try cracking the case open very carefully to extract the HDD, and loading it into a new case with USB outlet (will have to buy, around $30?).
I'll tell you my story: I had a LaCie external HDD (which turned out to be a nice Seagate Barracuda IDE inside) which died, light flashing, not recognised by the computer. Yours is a little different, because it is designed to switch off after a short while if it doesn't get a connection with the computer. My light just stayed red.
Anyway, I tried it on a different computer with the same result, then read LaCie website, which had an item about hard clicks and soft clicks. If the drive had hard clicks, I could say goodbye, but if the sounds were soft, the disk was probably OK. I wrote to their support people and they gave me detailed instructions for safely extracting the HDD, and what sort it was (PATA/IDE) so I could go and buy the right sort of cage to replace the old one, which I did. The new cage even came packaged with a screwdriver, as well as screws etc, so I could bolt it in myself, following the instructions. I got it all working fine within a day!
So, I'm hoping your problem is just the cage, and the HDD inside is still OK.
You'll probably need to use a flathead screwdriver to pry the case apart, here's some people who have been grappling with it.
Over to you. All the best.

it has been through an overload (hence the protection light) and needs its breaker to be reset (look for a poped out button and push it back in) or it needs a new fuse (replace ONLY WITH THE EXACT SAME MODEL OF FUSE or it will either blow too early or too late (or not at all) when there is a surge.
