You could try to remove the drive and install it on a "USB hard drive enclosure" ( not to expensive) to see if you can get the data

it's possible your current enclosure is bad and not the drive

thanks for rating

Toyota Prius hazard lights blinking constantly


i have a 2010 Prius that we bought new. It has had no problems, but I can tell you from my study of the Prius that pretty much nothing is simple. The easiest way to reset stuff is to disconnect the a start battery connection. You can look on the net how to start a Prius with jumper cables to the engine compartment, and disconnect the start battery there. If you are not comfortable with that, the start battery is in the rear near the spare tire. Disconnect the negative cable only, wait 15 minutes and reconnect. You may have to reprogram your radio push buttons, but so what. If this doesn't work, take it to a shop (maybe toyota dealership) that can read and interpret the trouble codes for a 2010 Prius. Enjoy the car, we do.

A fast blinking power light is an indication that the power supply is in a shorted condition. Parts called capacitors that filter the output power on the power supply board can fail and the power supply will short out causing the fast blinking power light. If you can solder then you can repair the monitor. Here is a link to a repair guide that has pictures and videos showing how to dis-assemble the unit and what to look for and replace to do the repair.

I have 3 2TB lacie bigger disk triple interface. I use them to backup my data. Unfortunely I lost 2 power supply so I used one for all. Yesterday I backup up all my data on one disk, I unplug this and...


If the power supply doesn't delivers the correct current the hard disks can't spin fast enough and this is detected as a failure by the pc, which cuts the connection. Hopefully by replacing the source all will go back to normal. Otherwise you will have to crack open the cases, remove the disks and install them directly in a desktop to try to access the data on them.

Can't find hard drive on computer anymore. Blue light constantly blinks on Lacie


My LaCie drive was not showing up on my Mac, and making a soft clicking sound ....I thought i was in for expensive data recovery and worse...But I met a guy who told me that La Cie have had a lot of trouble with their POWER SUPPLY and that i should try their customer service. I did, and after a round iof idiotic scripted replies I got to a smart CSR who sent me a NEW power supply. Hey Presto! The drive is back and working perfectly, no data lost!!!

You are hoping there is a reasonably inexpensive way to recover the data from your (let's face it) broken hard drive. There is not. If the data is really important, take the drive to the local computer repair shop and see if they can either fix it or recover the data. Be warned, it will cost nearly the cost of a new one for them to look at it and not fix it. Most decent places can do a forensic recovery of the data if it is of high value to you though. There are several .5 terabyte drives for around 60 dollars in the Sunday paper inserts, I noticed.
Sorry for the confirmation:)

My ethernet light blinks very fast and constantly...did not use to do this--just past week


It is common for this to show activity.
The flashing on the ethernet light is simply indicating data going between the computer and the modem.
Do check for spyware and virus to be certain all is well.

No bad things found and everything works.
Do not be concerned with the blinking light.
