Question about SimpleTech SimpleDrive Pininfarina 320GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive - Blue
The red light on the back is on and when I initially power it up the blue ring on the top flashes. After that, nothing.
They are quite a lot of different formats that hard drives can be run in. Fat 32, NTFS has several formatsof its own. Then there are the Linux and UNIX and Apple formats. By rights many are supposed to be compatible but the some reason they don't always work together.Have you tried running the new hardware installation wizard?I will have a look and see if I can find any information on this problem as I find it to be quite common.Hope this helpsregards

It could be that it's internal power supply burnt out,
in which case the drive itself could still be fine.
Try opening up the external case, and removing the drive.
Once you do, plug it in to your computer directly using its SATA cables, and see if that works.
Hope I helped,

From the manufacturer's web-site:
follow the link:
for the "StorageSync Backup Software Ver. 1.42" software.

http://www.hitachigst.com/support/index-files/simpletech-legacy-downloads. I am unsure which SimpleDrive version you have, but if it's the regular (not deluxe, mini, or 3.0), it should be the first driver on that page, assuming that Windows XP doesn't install the drivers itself when you plug it in.
