Question about BYTECC Computers & Internet
My Bytecc enclosure was working fine for a few weeks. But recently it stopped powering up. I took it apart and through experimentation I found that it will power up if I turn it on without the ribbon connected to the drive. After it powers up, I can connect the cable and everything is fine until I power down the drive. Then it won't start again unless I follow the same procedure. Any ideas? Is the board in the enclosure done?

The drive has to initialized through a windows program. Go to start, run type in.... compmgmt, click on disk managment, in the box where you see your other drives, scroll down till you see your usb drive.. When you right click in that box you will see a variety of options such as partition, format and assign a drive letter. Good luck.

There is a couple of things that could be going on. The first thing to check is that the drive did not get bumped off its drive letter by another device. If that is the case you just the to assign it a new one. The link below will help you do this.
The other issue is the drive may have gotten disconnected improperly. I had the same problem with one of my drive on my XP system as well. It partly has something to do with the USB controller to my understanding. Alot of times if you plug it into another computer it will detect it and ask to run a scan to repair the drive. After this you should be able to access the drive on your XP system again. Note I have the best resolutes when I plugged the drive into my Vista system. So I would recommend trying to plug it into a Windows Vista or 7 computer to attempt the repair.
Let me know if you have any more problems or questions.
