Go into the control panel.

Select administrative tools.

Select computer management.

Select disk management.

See if the drive is detected in there as well as the partition.

If it doesn't appear Iomega can replace it.

How can I reduce white noise / hissing I'm getting over the mic on a Behringer Xenyx 1204 USB setup?


Hi, you didn't say if the mic actually passes sound? The C-1 is a condenser Mic & needs phantom power - switch on the rear of your mixer. If that's no help, what happens if you disconnect the mic, then turn the levels back up? Still hissing or gone? If it's gone then it's the Mic - must use a 3 wire cable, preferably XLR so it gets the phantom power. If the hiss is still there without the Mic then sounds like the mixer is faulty - try some of the other channels..... How loau is the hiss - just in the background or as load as a vocal "one, two" test? A few things to check anyway...... Good Luck!

Depends on what is clicking. The engine vac opens blend doors under the dash. It could be one of the vac pots or a blend door is sticking. Normally the hissing noise means you have a leak, but a leak usually does not fix itself.

The hard drive keeps on clicking when i put it in the USB and doesn't open ,will i ever get the data back


Clicking Hard drive When a hard disk makes a clicking sound and the computer does not detect it then the hard disk is faulty. This is commonly known as "The click of death".
There is no way of fixing this hard drive, if you need to recover your data, then there are companies that can recover data off faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

Hi, everyone!!!1 my pro 320 get noising .....what happening///


Is it a clicking noise? Hissing noise? or maybe a grinding noise? A pc can cause many different noises. A clicking noise generally means the hard drive is failing. You'd want to back up your data immediately and get a new drive. Hissing can be a bad fan or CD/DVD drive that needs to be replaced. Grinding noises can also be caused by fan bearings going out. You would need to find out which fan it is, and replace that fan.

My drive cannot be read by mac os or windows. If i open disk utility on my mac it is seen but cannot be accessed. It does not show up in any other locations on my mac. Windows recognizes the drive but...


Hello,
sometimes a defective power supply can cause those issues.
Verify that the power supply is silent, no hissing or high pitch noise.
If it there is a hissing or high pitch noise, replacing the power supply with an identical one might fix the problem.
If not, please let me know.

Hard drive clicks several times when turned on,


I have to say from the sounds you describe the Hard Drive is totally destroyed, the noises you can hear are the mechanical parts inside grinding and clanking together. If the information is critical it may be recovered by a specialist data recovery company, but we are talking £100's even £1000's to do the job, so otherwise I would suggest taking case apart and buying a new hard drive for it.

Sorry its not what you want to hear but it sounds very terminal to me.

The reason the PC can detect a device is that it can see the Interface card that sits between the USB port and the Hard Drive.

Fourwheel drive won't engage


Hello,
This can be caused by a few issues, Can you narrow down the problem a bit. What happens when you press the 4x4 button? When pressing the button do you hear any clicking? Do you hear any hissing sounds?

Loud hissing through rear (souround sound) speakers


I have the Sony Bravia KDL-46S4100. The high-picthed hiss drives me insane. I have a work around but not a fix. Go into your TV's menu and find BACKLIGHT. Adjust it from 1-9 with the house quiet and find what frequency of the hiss is the least annoying.


Sony Bravia high pitch hiss hissing sound high frequency
