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 hard disk inside it doesn't responds to the controller - hardware failure, the disk has failed.
Nothing can fix that, your unit is truly dead and you need a new one.

SimpleTech SimpleDrive Portable USB 2.0 60GB 5400rpm SimpleTech SimpleDrive Portable USB 2.0 60GB wont show up


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
make sure the lead/s that attach to this drive have a secure seating and are not bad/faulty the light on only tells that its getting power it might not be getting enough power you might test the lead/s or
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable 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

So my terabyte (external) is showing as a local disk hen i explore...it is saying "corrupt or unreadable" and when i go to properties it is showing all 0 of 0 is used...am i stuck?


Hello Pmtarq, hi, there are two possible bad part, first your hard drive is really bad, you need to reformat your drive, all data will be lost. (this is the common solution) or second the device electronics is bad, you can not do anything if the device fails, all you can do is salvage the hard drive. (this is a long shot, but possible)

External no longer recognized


Right click My Computer, Properties, then click on Device Manager.
Select Disk Drives then on tab menu Action, Add legacy hardware. Go through the setup and use CD's that came with Hard Drive otherwise search company site for drivers.

Cannot access disk information


Hello,

Yes we can save you :D

First off though, with the combination of a virus and a formatted drive I will only recommend that you send it to a pro. Too many things that could go wrong and any of the files that are currently recoverable could be destroyed trying some of the usual testing methods.

Comment back with your region and city and I will find an appropriate pro for you to contact.
