    Doesn't seem to be a problem with fire wall or antivirus as status of ndas still the same with them all off

Check the cables first, try a different one

    Once you are sure cables are ok, do the following.

    connect the disk to computer, using only the switch to build a mini network: PC-->switch-->Netdisk.
    See if the disk does connect in this way, if it does not search for a firewall installed on your PC (there should be at least Windows one), and set DIsk IP as an exception in firewall (allow all traffic) or disable firewall at all (better to configure than disable).

    Once the disk works on the mini network with the switch, attach the router to the switch to get internet.

    If you instead decide to connect the disk to the router instead, remember that router has an internal firewall, you may need to set up router firewall to have disk working in this case.

    To find out if disk is connected you can use ping command from command prompt.

    To find out IPs of network devices you can use 'ipconfig/all' from command prompt.

    To start command prompt go to start button, then run, then write CMD in run box.

    The router has his own internal firewall, test the disk with the switch, to find out if it can connect.
    Once you build a small network with switch connected to computer and and Ximeta do the following:
    go to command prompt (run from start menu and type in cmd).
    on command prompt type ipconfig/all, so that you can find out disk IP, or if you know your disk IP already do Ping.
    If you can Ping the disk and software still does not see it then it is a software problem.
    More likely you will have to reconfigure your network bypassing router or add disk IP in exceptions on router firewall.
    If you do not pass through this steps there is no way to troubleshoot a network device problem, no use to me knowing that you deactivated antivirus or Windows firewall.

Need a power cord

Hi Tatearian,

Ximeta, like many external drive manufacturers use a fairly custom AC adapter. Finding a replacement is not only difficult but often costs more than the enclosures are worth.

The simplest and cheapest thing to do is go to your local PC shop, ask the technicians there to remove the hard drive from the enclosure and put it in a new one. This won't cost any more than buying a replacement adapter and will be much simpler to do.

Hope this helps FixYa,

External HD beeping

Well that pretty much sounds like something is wrong with the hard drive! What you can do is take out the hard drive from the enclosure and mount it to a regular desktop pc with the IDE connectors, if you aren't capable of this then you should get a technician to assist you, cause it might need some troubleshooting to bring up! If the drive still does not come up then you might want to consider professional data recovery but that can be quite costly so the data has to be REEAAAALLLLY important! regards, babb
