    Well my laptop is a LG with Windows XP. I plug the USB from the External hard drive 250GB SimpleTech "pininfarina" into my laptop (and the power supply too of course) and it detects it but ask me to install it first. The laptop is trying to install it by itself but then doesnt find the program so it asks me to insert the installation CD or disk that came with it which I dont have anymore (I lost it). It must have a website somewhere that I can download from........ the installation pilot.....



    HELP !!!

    And THANKS !!!!!!!!

I just got a new laptop and I no longer have my softward installation disk for my simpletech 320GB external hard drive. I've gone onto simpletech.com and am having trouble finding the software program. ...


If you have a new laptop, you should not need the install disk to see the drive as the drive is USB 2.0 compliant.

And no, nothing will get erased unless you erase it on purpose.

Plug the drive into you laptop (USB cable).

Plug power into to the external drive.

Turn the drive on.

It may take a minute or so but your laptop should recognize the drive. It will get assigned a drive letter (assuming you are using Windows).

Hard Drive problem


Have a simpletech 96300-40001-001 external hard drive from couple years ago I bougt at Sam's. I have lost the installation software. It will now work on my laptop, the computer I bought it for because I installed it there when i bought it, but it will not work on the others (not recognized) and I cant seem to find a download of drivers that will make it work on this desktop and my other laptop. Do you know where I can get a copy of the original installation CD that came wih the hard drive. I am running XP Home on all three computers.

Installation cd


Hello, technically you should not need the install CD for this as any modern computer you plug it into should be able to recognize it and use it. However if you feel you need any downloads go to the manufacturers website which is HERE. Good Luck! Dr. Know
