    mine [Lacie Porsche 60 Gb usb] stopped working after a fall from table. Now it beeps (two different tones of beep alternating) and the computer says "no readable disk" when connected. Any help or guide¿? THANKS!

    Straight out of the box I can't reformat my lacie porsche hard drive 120gb for a mac. That is what I bought it for. Disk Utility does not recognize the drive. What to do to reformat it?
    It beeps non-stop when I connect it. It hasn't fallen, it is brand new.

Lacie Porsche drives in my experience or infamous for not having the most durable bridge boards. The bridge board is a chip that has a chipset on it which take the SATA or PATA connection and send it to the USB and or Firewire ports on the enclosure. If the drive is powered up, you should get a small red or orange light on the front. When connected to either mac or pc ( porsches are MS_DOS formatted out the box ), if it does not mount or does not appear in DISK UTILTY, then it is a high probability that the enclosure/bridge board has failed and the drive ( if not making grinding, buzzing, clicking or beeping sounds) will have to be extracted and placed into a more stable enclosure. Hope this helps.

Tv has no picture but sound is ok


First of all, change the input device to something you know works for sure. Look for any jammed buttons on remote or on control panel. (This can happen, if you inadvertently sit on the remote hidden under a magazine or newspaper) Check the picture settings to ensure that these are ok. If problem persists, it might need attention by a qualified service technician.
