Freelancers work a lot of with hard disks, backup etc.
Sometimes you will see be in this situation :
External hard disk continuous beeping.Pc can not detect External hard disk. Several freelancers from this community had this problem. One of the freelancers had Transcend external HDD and he heard this strange noise, external hard disk beep sound.
He asked me : What are Transcend Hard disk sound Problems & Solutions ?
Solution is :
The reason for this continuous beep at hard disk is hardware failure. Specially if the disk motor is not running. The main reason for such failure is lack of power. Problem is your USB port.
You need just to try from other USB port to connect External hard disk or use a USB hub which have external power supply or try from other notebook or computer.
I usually use USB post which is in the back of your computer (not one in front of).
Problem will be solved in 80% of all cases.
Solution 2 :
Uniinstall all USB devices from the device manager and than download drivers for specific intel-based USB ports – simply an uninstall and re-install without letting windows install their recommended drivers.
Good luck !
