Disassemble the external drive and install the hard drive in a pc or place in a generic external drive you can purchase without a drive inside, then you can get access to those files again. The External drive interface has failed not the drive itself.
if your computer came with
a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it click start control panel
administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all
of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark
! or red x right click to reinstall
drivers or: if you can see your usb but
its not working ports(com&lpt)right
click update driver if your computer came with
a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it sometimes the wires inside
the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy
equipment upon the cable, 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, check the USB leads that
attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are
securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a
lot of unforeseen problems also make sure the computers Ram and Cmos battery
are securely seated hope this helps
That beeping signals a failure to communicate between the disk and the motherboard of the pc - the disk is defective. You have a slim chance of recovering what's on it by removing the actual disk from the external case and plugging it in the a desktop.
I have the same issue, however with my verbatim 500g its ok. i believe it is because the lacie is a desktop external and therefore is compatable with windows xp and 7 alone. Verbatim is a "portable" external hard drive which makes it compatible with several different systems. I would suggest returning it, I just formatted my old verbatim harddrive and set up mediaasharing. Through my router. You can actually route the lacie harddrive by going to my computer and right click the icon. Next go to share with; advanced settings and allow all. Then when you turn your ps3 on search for media servers... I would suggest to google media server for ps3 to get it all seet up. GOOD LUCK
An external drive has two major components -- the disk-drive and the USB-to-disk-drive adapter. Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and connect it as a 'slave' disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if that interface hardware is the problem (and if the disk-drive by itself is 'readable').
