Bytecc 2.5 Hotdrive

I just recieved a Bytecc 2.5 Hotdrive in the mail. And when I went to plug it in, my computer can't find it. This drive has some important data on it, so I can't reformat it. I'm running Windows XP and have tried both the USB 2.0 and Firewire cables. The company I recieved the drive from is Mac based. What do I need to do to get my computer to recognize it? Thank you.

A drive that is formatted in the PC format that your machine can recognize and read. It will not work with Mac stuff.

SOURCE: Verbatim 250GB External Hard Disk not recognized by PC

Almost always, when a USB drive doesn't assign a drive letter in MY Computer the issue is a Mapped network drive using the drive letter the USB drive is attempting to use.

With the drive connected, open DISK MANAGEMENT find the USB Drive, right click it and assign it an available drive letter.

SOURCE: Beyond micro mobile disk BMMDU2 is not recognized

The drive USB interface may be damaged; an external case is available form various vendors for about $20. The drive should pop out and into the new case. If still not recognized, then the ID track on the drive may be compromized - that can happen if the USB is unplugged while it is still writing to the drive. There is drive recovery software out there, like EASEUS that works quite well (they have a demo that you can try free) to see if that would work.

SOURCE: WD Passport plugged into mac then PC, but no drive letter

Hi

You can either format the drive using the PC or install MacDisk on your PC witch will allow you to view any Mac formatted drive on the PC.

http://siteadvisor.de/sites/macdisk.com/downloads/17329989/

Click the link to download macdisk7.5.7.5 or reformat the drive to NTFS which the mac and PC will be able to share if the need arises in the future.

SOURCE: Drive will not show up on 'my computer'

Hello

Ok, this might just fix your problem. The thing is, if you have more than one drive attatched to your computer, the drive letters of the drives may overlap, causing some drives not to show in My computer.

Just follow these steps and you might be able to fix the problem.

Go to:
Start
Control panel
Administrative tools
Computer Management
Storage
Disc Management
Now you should be able to see your drive in the schematic shown below.

Right click on the drive and choose to change drive letter or paths. If there is no drive letter assigned to your external, assign one, if there already is a drive letter assigned to the drive, change it.

Hope this can help you.

Kind regards
Andrea

Mobile 2.5. Hotrdive HDD not registering on computer


You can try to use a different Hard drive enclosure because this can also be a problem with the enclosure, if the new hard drive enclosure works good , but if still not working you can try to take that hard drive out of its enclosure then connect it to a laptop and hopefully that way we can retrieve the data on it...

Hope that helps..........

Cannot copy files using BYTECC Bt-300


check the jumpers on the old drive and see if its powering on or spining up! some of these usb adapters just dont work on old drives if all else faisl open your system and connect it to your pata bus if you have one! if not then use another computer to extract your data and put it on another storage media e.g. flash drives ext hardddisk memory card or dvd or cd disk!

The click click click is the hard drive trying to spin up. Either the hard drive is not getting enough power, which is not likely since you have tried it on other computers, or the hard drive is bad.
You've had the hard drive for a few years and I would say it's at the end of it's life. They are not end user repairable, so your only choice left is to get a new one.

Bytecc 2.5 Mobile HDD Hotdrive


Looks like you need to Format the new drive.
Your computer can see it, but cannot access it, right?
You can right click on the new E: drive and select the Format option.
If that doesn't work, then you must right click on My Computer, and select Manage from the pop up menu.
Then click on the option Disk Management at the left.
Soon you'll get a graphic view of the hard drives currently installed on your system.
Now just select the drive you want to activate E:\, right click on the rectangled area, and select FORMAT.
Once the process is completed you will be able to store information, pictures, etc.

Please don't forget to rate if the answer helps.
