Question about Unibrain iZak Digital Media Player

Open Question

Hi, I've recently had problems with my power supply. Although I can connect izak with my usb cable on my Mac, when I connect it to the power supply and TV the disk does not spin properly(you hear a tick). I have borrowed a power supply from a friend that has exactly the same model as me and it works perfectly. I've tried to purchase a new power supply from an electronics shop but, although it spins the disk properly, it does not display any menu on the TV. Is there a specific set on the pins of the plug that goes into iZak? I can't think of any other reason why it does not work. Many thanks in advance, Stavros.

It may be that the printer needs more power than the USB port can supply, so it shuts down. Mine uses a special cable with 2 USB plugs at the computer end and one plug at the printer end - this gives twice as much power to the printer! Image attached....

I have a 1Tb Samsung Story external drive which I use to backup my Mac. The drive is plugged in almost all the time but only powers up when the Mac initiates a backup. As of yesterday the Samsung won't...

An external disk-drive has four major components:

* the USB cable,

* an "internal" disk-drive inside the enclosure,

* a USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

* a power-supply (only if the disk-drive is a "desktop" drive;
a "laptop" disk-drive gets enough power through the USB cable)


* change the USB cable,

* try connecting to a different USB port,

* try connecting to a different computer,

* disassemble the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive.
Temporarily connect it as a "slave" disk-drive into a desktop computer, to see if bypassing that adapter bypasses the problem,

* get the model-number and serial-number from the label on the disk-drive, and access Samsung's web-site, to check the warranty-status of your specific drive. If the warranty still is valid, then exercise the warranty to get a replacement.

* if the disk-drive is out-of-warranty, purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and connect it into the case, to "reconstitute" your external device.

* if the data on your disk-drive is "important", search online for professional "data recovery" services. For a large fee, they can repair a "dead" disk-drive, just long-enough to copy all your files, and give you the copy.

The light on my Seagate freeagent go flashes quickly when it is connected to my computer, indicating an error. What should i do?

I had similar problem recently. I noticed that I had forgotten to connect the power supply cable to the USB hub, to which my FreeAgent Go was connected to, after I had connected all my USB devices to my computer's USB ports (after I had disconnected everything from my computer in order to isolate another issue). Reconnecting the power supply cable immediately stopped the flashing light and windows recognized the drive.

Don't know how you are connecting yours to the computer i.e. via a USB hub or directly to the computer's USB port. Note that my FreeAgent Go drive requires both USB connectors connected to the computer (or to USB hub). Two USB connectors are on one end and the other end of the cable is connected to the drive/docking station.

Hope this helps.

Sync to PC

I have had problems with that too, but i think i¨ve finally managed to overcome this. In setting>connectivity>USB connection menu choose Data Transfer/Service (I have Czech software, so excuse wrong names). Than Start LG Sync program, choose USB port and it should be working,
Although much more important problem for me is how to make built-in MP3 player play songs from external SD card without stopping after each song, not mentioning unavailability of other player functions.
