I have the same problem, but only in Windows, and only on my laptop (It's a Compaq 515). I do not get the problem if I pair it with my phone, or if I plug the receiver into any of my other computers. The big thing is: If I reboot into Linux, the noise stops.
One or more of the hints below will probably sort out most USB problems with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)
A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.
1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability
2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)
3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.
4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.
5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port
6. For FLASH DRIVES you should ensure that the device is set for "quick removal" using the drive control panel properties or use the USB "Safely Remove Hardware" option. If you dont do this there is a very strong chance that any files you transfer may not be there when you plug into another computer.
7. It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it. You should also do this to cheack the drives connections are not bad inside the enclosure.
8. If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.
9. If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE. Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further
USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason. Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.
USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care. This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.
Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear. Known as "The Click Of Death"
All fixed, thanks to Maanita. Problem was that I had a USB microphone (gooseneck Logitech AK5370) plugged in for my Skype calls. Not knowing anything about audio, I didn't realize the mic was interfering with my laptop speakers -- assumed turning off the mic was sufficient. Also, Maanita re-installed the sound drivers, which I wouldn't have known how to do. It sure beat calling someone at $60 an hour + expenses to come out here. What a delight to find Fixya! Thanks again!
Begin by visiting windows update and see if the custom update offers you any hardware drivers for your system. Then please follow the steps in this excellent tutorial to locate and install new drivers for your sound card. If your system was purchased from a major manufacturer, you will most likely be able to download the required drivers from their support site online.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!
accers are touchy(were talking about vista are'nt we?)try going to restore under control panel & setting it back to a previous date before you had the problem(sounds like you have a conflict with a recent program you installed)thanx for using fix-ya!!!
Hi there; I had the same problem, not being able to install or even view the files on the disc. I have XP therefore out of curiosity I ran it on a PC with Vista and it worked; so I promptly transferred the disc back into my disc drive and bingo it worked. .....Don't ask me how...but it did. Good luck
Simply remove the old drive and install the new one. The OS for the Akai DPS16 is kept on the motherboard. Once installed, format the disk and it will automatically partition. My new 80GB drive partitioned into 7 @11GB each. Leave the jumper at CS (cable select).
