My iqon hard drive will power up but i cant access it


Clicking sound on an external hard drive is an indication that it's quiting to work. You mentioned that it's just stopped working, you may need to check the Disk Management of your computer to see if you could still reformat it. To do this, please follow the steps below:

FOR WINDOWS XP AND VISTA:

1. Make sure that the HD is properly connected to the computer.
2. Right-click 'My Computer' or 'Computer' folder and then go to "Manage".
3. Locate and click Disk Management.
4. Then, take note of the drive letters that will appear on the screen.
5. While the Disk Management window is opened, unplug the HD and check which drive letter will disappear.
6. If a drive letter disappears, then that is your external 250GB HD. You may reformat it to make it work again.

NOTE: Reformatting the HD will erase all the files saved in it. You may want to bring your HD in any data recovery center to retrieve the important files. If the HD didn't show up under your Disk Management, then there's nothing that we could do but to bring your HD in to the Data Recovery to save the files.

FOR MACINTOSH OSX:

1. Connect your HD to the computer.
2. Click 'Go' (located near the Apple icon, Finder, File, Edit and View).
3. Select Utilities and then click the Disk Utility Icon.
4. Take note the drive letters and then unplug the HD.

If a drive letter disappears, that's your HD. If nothing disappears, then the computer no longer detecting the HD.

Good luck!

I have windows xp professional 2002, service pack 2 and the sound and sound icon disappeared


Sounds like either the hardware has become disabled or you lost your audio driver. To check this Right click the "My Computer" icon and select "Manage" A Computer Management window will come on the left hand side select device manager. This pulls up a list of every piece of hardware in your computer. If anything has a yellow " ! " next to it then the computer sees the hardware but can not run it due to an incorrect or missing driver. If there is a red " X " next to it then it has been disabled. To re-enable a component right click the icon and select enable. Finding the correct driver may be difficult, if you bought the computer from a store try going to the manufactures website. Go to Drivers/Support, usually you can type in the Model or Serial number of your computer and pull up every driver you may need.

That happened to my Laptop as well and all I did is reinstalled the audio driver that is included in the package and it actually worked with no problem. If in that case is still happening, try to update the driver after reinstalling it.
