A drive making noise suggests that something physical has gone wrong.  If something happened so that the OS simply can't access your data and there not too much physical damage to the disk, try one of those recovery programs, but one that doesn't attempt to fix the disk, only access the data

How do I music onto my Aluratek ereader?


First hook your Aluratek to the computer with the USB cord that came with your Aluratek. Then make sure your Aluratek is on. Go to start menu on your computer. Open the computer file it should list your Aluratek along with your computer hard drive. Left click on your Aluratek drive. It should say open. Open it then click on the file that says the type of files you want to move. Books, pictures, mp3's. Now drag and drop the files to your open file. You can also do the same with the SD card rather than the internal memory both will show up as separate devices.

First make sure your SD card is formatted for your Aluratek. You do that by hooking your Aluratek up to your computer. Turn your Aluratek on with the SD card inside the Aluratek. Go to start menu. Open file named computer. There should be your computer drive your Aluratek and the SD they will be lettered left click on the one for your SD card. It should list format. Click format. Use safe to remove hardware remove your Aluratek and SD card. Now press the reset button on your Aluratek with a paper clip or needle do not use a ball point pen. Now it should be ready to load with anything you want on it. To do that you hook up your Aluratek to your computer open the drive as stated before in your SD or your Aluratek. Now drag and drop your files into the drive you have open. It should now be compatible. I know this works I had the same issue with some of my mp3's.
