My Verbatin 320gb hard drive works perfectly fine with my macbook pro.. However, if i plug it in to my windows vista pc or my ps3... it just doesnt show up. ODD.


do you hear it connect through the speakers when you connect via USB? If you do then click start > right click on computer and click manage. click on disk management and see if you can see the 250gb hard drive. if you can, then right click the drive and click change drive letter, if nothing is in the box indicating it has a drive letter assigned then click on add and choose a letter, if you now see the drive when you open explorer but cant access it then the reason it isnt showing in windows is probably because you have formatted it as a mac filing system.

I have bought yesterday a ego portable hard drive 500gb. The drive is not detected. I have tried using different plugs and a different computer but nothing shows up????


You have to make sure that both the data cable and the power cable are connected to USB 2.0 ports. the power one is marked with a lightening bolt. xp/vista/windows 7 has the drivers in thier data base. so if plugged in correctly then will auto detect.

I borrowed a MadDog portable hard disc read but Windows won't see


If Windows does not detect the hard-drive, then the electronics on the hard-drive are "dead", and only a professional "Data Recovery Service" should be retained to pull data from the hard-drive.

P.S. Be sure that the jumper on the hard-drive is set to 'MASTER', not to 'SLAVE', not to 'CABLE SELECT'.

Blue light flashed on the portable hard drive for a couple seconds.How do I know if all files were transfered? Nothing on screen showed up? I have a HP laptop.


If your portable hard drive was set up as the "H" drive, go to My Computer (in Windows XP), or Computer (in VISTA), select your "H" drive and view your files (if there).
