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.

Ihave a 1.5tb that I have not used in months. I plugged it in and all I get is beeping noises. The green light is on in front and the unit feels warm to the touch. Any solutions?


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 untill turned off.

make sure that your RAM is securely seated

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
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,
hope this helps

Granddaughter knocked it off of table while pluged in. Tries VERY briefly to initalize, then just sits and makes a faint beeping sound that continues to beep until you unplug it.


I want to tell you that hard disk are fragile that is why we have to handle it with care, next option is try to change the hard disk and connect it back to the system and load it with kind of operating system you want.

Disk spins ...then I hear a beep...icon does not show up


The hard disk or the adapter case maybe faulty.
To test the hard disk, remove it form the Iomega case and connect it to an USB hard disk adapter and plug it into a computer's USB port.
If this computer see it as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files then the hard disk is OK, then the Iomega adapter case is faulty.
Then you need a new hard drive adapter case, it doesn't need to be an Iomega brand.

Computer is not longer recognising the external hard-drive is attached. it has just had a little bump with the desk! it is making a low beeping noise. tried on another pc and still nothing


well that beep sound comes when something goes wrong with the disk, so go to the authorized service station of the product and get it checked if it is repairable or not, if not then atleast they will help you in recovering the data from your hard disk

Beeping noise when i turn ext hard drive on


The beeping is the hard drive telling you its going bad needs to be replaced.

You can try a data recovery service to get the data back but more than likely its too late sorry to say :(

Lacie Desktop Hard Disk beeps when connected


No much help I can give, when an hard drive beeps it has motor error or head error, the disk hardwar is faulty, and you are not able to recover anything from the disk.

A safe data recovery can only be performed by specialized companies on a facility called clean room, where dust is completely removed from the room using a vacuum.

The data recovery using this kind of equipment does not cost less than $800.
