Hi , seagate 1tb Expansion portable drive S/H: 2GHY01LD error in page operation plz help

Go to Start, right-click on My Computer icon and select Manage
When you go to manage, select Disk Management.
Click on Disk Management and you will notice all the disks (HDDs and any removable devices on your right column.

Click on the Seagate 1tb HDD,
(1) Note the file system
(2) Note the Status of the drive
(3) Note Fault Tolerance
(4) Then Notice the HDD if it is Basic or Dynamic

If the HDD is Basic, right click on it and create a partition.
Then move some of the Data on to the new partition to free up the old partition. Restart the computer and abserve the results...

That usually happens when the Hard Disk driver is running out of space or you have less RAM..

My jvc cd player will not play the cd it says read & then no disk

the optical pickup (lens and laser) is dirty and needs cleaning. you can buy a **** cleaner and use it regularly, but if you need it too often, you'll want to take it apart to clean it.

My PS2 wont read any disk.

HI, the optics assembly has failed. the actual optical lens assembly will need to be replace in this case. you can try to clean the lens with a cleaning disk.. this may wake the laser. if the cleaning doesn't produce results, replacing the optical lens assembly will be the next move.

CD ROM not working

When the CD does not read any disk, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD will not be read, therefore the error.

When this problem is beginning you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with cotton tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD drive unit.

Disc read error

Hmmmm, Then poissibly the motor might have a need for servicing. Because by the sounds of it, the motor isnt moving quite right inside the system. I ran into this problem with my PS1 and PS2's that i have had over the years. Motors can wear out over time and use. If your like my friends, they go through a new PS2 in a year flat, because it is used 20 to 22 horus a day by 3 different people. So yeah, they use theirs very well.

Back to subject. Anyways, if the motor is not actually doing much but clicking, it sounds like there is an Obstruction in the way of the spin. Meaning, its not getting its complete rotation every whatever amount, so it will not read the disc. The motor also has to be able to move back and forth to read the disc as you play it and if that motor goes, than you rarely can play a game all the way through.

There are usually a number of computer stores (small time) that offer repair services for a price. They can usually order the small parts and Sony lets them install those replacement parts, because like all big companies, it takes a lot longer to get things done because everyone goes there first.

When searching for a store that can help, be specific in questioning. You need to ask directly if they have any employee's who know how to service PS2's

Disc read error

Sounds like a disk read error alright. Try replacing the laser eye device in the PS2. I know a good place with pretty low costing parts for PS2s. RichsPSXParts. If not the laser eye try the ribbon cable between the hard drive and the laser eye. Those I'd think be the most obvious first checks. I'm not 100% on it since every one I know whos PS2 does that wont let me look at it instead the throw it away. Such a waste.
