My external drive was working fine yesterday. Today it doesn't work. The power is working fine. The light comes on with no problems. My computer won't recognize the drive now and the drive seems to be making a constant beeping like hum.

Sounds like driver problem to me. Re install the driver by using installation disc, or if you have lost your CD, than use this Driver Update Software to update. I hope this helped.

Claire,

Have you tried connecting the drive to another computer using Windows 7 or later. You could try chkdisk /f at a command prompt or get the testdisk app to identify deeper issues with the drive.

Samsung Silvercare Front loader working fine yesterday. Today there is no lights to the dial. There is power to the cord.


Try unplugging the unit for a few minutes. After plugging it back in and the power still doesn't come on, you will need to replace the control board.

Unfortunately, external hard drives go bad. A 320 is probably a few years old, I replace mine about every 3 years to be sure. I know it sounds funny, but things work till they don't. Just because it was working yesterday does not mean it will work today. It is possible there is a setting in your XP or 7 to keep from seeing the drive, but doubtful it changed on both systems between yesterday and today.

My LaCie external hardrive doesn't show on my desktop anymore when I plug it in. This just started today yesterday it was fine, but now the light doesnt even come on


First try to plug it in to a different port on your computer.
If it still doesn't come up, reboot your computer, Still not working? Try connecting it to a different computer.
If the drive still doesn't come up on the other computer most likely the case/ housing will need to be replaced.

My external hard drive won't turn on


Ok, this just happened to me, my western digital my book studio external drive was not booting up, i could hear the disk spinning, but it would then cut out and the light on the drive was never turning on. i called Western Digital customer support and found out that the proper way to connect a drive is to plug in the power cable FIRST then the data cable. Also, with the My Book Studio Edition you should never have to press the power button, the drive just turns on when you plug it in. Hope this helps somebody...

It wasn't a malfunction of the simple tech unit, the problem was with the computer itself. I finally re booted the computer and the problem resolved itself. Thank you for being there and I learned a bit out of the experience (I am new to mac's)
