Memorykick 500gb si worked well so far, but just stopped booting up goes to opening multi image screen then stops. Are they repairable if so where? Any ideas please?

Hello, mechanical HDDs are very fickle when it comes to operating. Unfortuantely they can be the most prone to breaking as well as being the most important part of your PC.

If your HDD has ceased functioning it is important to purchase a replacement as any drive, even if repaired, is no longer trustworthy with data after it has broken down once before.

There are a few things you can do to try to bring it back to life. One product, Spinrite, is very good at doing just this.

A cheaper, however not as robust, solution is using Microsoft's checkdisk utility in Windows. You can use a Windows repair disk to boot to a command prompt and run CHKDSK /F to scan and potentially fix your HDD.

What hard drive is used in wj-hd316a

The hard disk is divided into three partitions: "Normal Recording,"

"Event Recording," and "Copy." Image data is automatically

recorded to the appropriate partition according to the recording

mode. For the normal recording partition, the data is overwritten

when the capacity is full. The event recording partition prohibits

overwriting to protect data. Copy partition prepares data for

retrieval to external medium.

Hard Disk Partitioning Function* automatically

selects the partition to be recorded.

RAID5 distributes image data to multiple hard disks in the

extension unit. Upon hard disk breakdown, lost data can be

restored from other hard disks. When using one WJ-HD300A

Series unit, mirroring function is available for data backup.

RAID5 / Mirroring Function

Playback VMD

One VMD area can set one

playback image for motion


WJ-HD300A Series


(* 10, 13, and 16 screens are available only with the WJ-HD316A.)

Even when images from multiple cameras are displayed on a multi-screen,

live monitoring can be achieved on all cameras at a full rate of 60 ips

(image per second). Experience real-time,

full surveillance with

full-rate video images.

I deleted some folders on my 1TB FreeAgent External Drive for a Mac to free space so that it will have ample space to continue a backup. Even after deleting the files, available space was the same. What...

You probably deleted folders which were not that big in size. You can run some apps that will visualize the drive usage like JDiskReport ( or SpaceMonger ( This way it will be easy for you to see what folders are taking the bulk of the space in your drive. You said you are using a Mac so use JDiskReport app which works on both Mac and PC (SpaceMonger is only for PC).

If you've checked your system for viruses and spyware which can shut down certain drivers and drives, and have found nothing, then chances are your drive has stopped working. Many times the system will find the drive, but the internal mechanism of the drive goes bad and prevents it from working. A lot of factors can cause this:

1. Old - 3 years is a good while
2. Old - depending on how much you use it. The more you use it, the more likely it is to go bad.
3. Has anyone bumped it or dropped it? They're very sensitive to this type of treatment.
5. Try reinstalling the drivers if any came with it.

Good luck.

Did you try switching the USB port that you plug your unit into? This could help. You may need to reinstall the WD provided software. I believe it is available from their website if you don't have the CD anymore.

NO SCREEN MESSAGE with information about copy or space available

Verbatium purchased Smart Drive and does not currently support thse drives any longer. the unit I purchased only had a small sheet of paper with it.

The drive inside is a standard laptop drive and you can remove it by taking out the screws on the bottom and removing the back cover. Take it to a computer shop and they should be able to get your data. Or you can purchase a cable to hook it up to USB and transfer the images that way.

Alright so the disk 0 recovery (D) partition is the one that you will want to expand. What you want to do next is to shrink the primary partition by right clicking on that partition and selecting the shrink volume option. I'm not sure what size your drive or partition is but about 2 gigs should safice. Once you've done this than you'll want to right click on the recovery partition and expand this volume so that it takes up the 2 gigs of space that you freed by shrinking the primary volume. This should give you ample space for backup files. If you do not have enough space still than just repeat steps.
