That's normal, the node is recognizing the external drive. If it's during boot up it will look for a bootable partition on the external drive if its given 1st priority in the cmos.

IT MAKES A BEEP AND DOESNT OPEN THE FILES


it is not getting enough power. Use a two ended USB plug (both ends into computer) one into HD, or use external power adapter. Do no continue using it. The two ended USB cable should have come with the drive.

I have a 1 TB SimpleDrive external USB drive. The drive is now making a repeating, beeping noise, slow and methodical, and it is not recognized by either my MAC or my pc. WHat does the beep-beep-beep mean...


the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk and remains active until turned off.
make sure that your RAM is securely seated,
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you should see a yellow question mark?
right click to reinstall drivers
when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable just replace the cable of the hard disk everything should work fine again, sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems
hope this helps

My external drive is beeping at about every second and it is not being recognized by my computer


when you hear this it some times mean you are not getting enough power to the drive or the drive is dead and you can just throw it away. if it is an external slim drive and it has a mini usb to 2 usb cables then plug both cables in the usb slot on a pc.

My iomega 320gb hard drive is just beeping when it's plugged in. I've tried plugging it into other computers, trying different USB ports, uninstalling it from my computer then letting it reinstall...


An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

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

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

My WD external hard drive does not stay recognized on my computer. When I first plug it in it makes the ding/beep noise and shows up on "my computer" but after a few seconds it makes the ding/beep noise...


Try the hard drive on another computer to see if it is the external or a laptop interface problem. There are EIDE/SATA to usb adapters that you can connect a hard drive to that the computer will then read as an external hard drive. The problem with external HDDs is the usb interface built into them, these are mounted on controller cards and that is ususally where the failure occurs.
