Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Well I just purged a memorex ultra traveldrive and I try to connect it to my Eee PC series that works on Linux. My computer does not recognize the harddrive. I called with the back-up team of the computer and they say that it should work with Linux. They asked me about the installing disk...which I have...but I have no where to put de cd-rom into my computer. It doesn't have a cd/dvd-player...so that's pretty useless. They told me I probably only would need the driver....but where can I find it? So I can install it in my computer. thank you very much..anyone who could help me!

The Only drivers I could find were Windows based and not linux you can find the link below

My best advice would be to contact Memorex support, and if you find that not helpful you can check in some linux forums to see if someone has written a 3rd party driver for you traveldrive

Hope this helps

Good day. I have a memorex ultratravel drive USB 2.0 160GB. Everytime I connect to any computer I get the message:The pc does not recognize the USB device code 43. Please let me know what i can do. thanks...


Code 43 is the death code - the pc simply cannot communicate with the attached device because the device is not working. This means that the Memorex is dead . Since the electronics board inside it cannot be repaired or replaced it means that yo must buy a new one.

I have a Memorex Ultra Drive connected via USB to a Windows XP machine. It shows up in My Computer as a folder but then disappears again. It does this repeatedly. The drive is formated as a FAT32. How...


Hi,

As you have described that your Memorex Ultra Traveldrive re-appears repeatedly, indicates that the communication between your computer and your external hard drive is intermittent. The FAT32 format does not produce these types of issues. What we can do first is identify what causes the problem.

Assuming that the hard drive in your Memorex Ultra Traveldrive is in good shape:

Troubleshooting Method #1. Try connecting your Memorex Ultra Traveldrive into another USB port. If the problem persists, use another USB cable for your external hard drive. If the problem still persists, you will have to replace the external casing of your external hard drive. If your external hard drive works with the other USB port perfectly, most likely, the USB port where you originally plug into of your Windows XP machine needs to be checked. That USB port might need some repairing.

Troubleshooting Method #2. Try connecting the external hard drive into another computer and perform the same troubleshooting as Method #1. If your external hard drive works with other computers perfectly, most likely, the USB port where you originally plug into of your Windows XP machine needs to be checked. The USB port might need some repairing.

If the problem only occurs with your Windows XP machine, assuming all USB ports are in good shape, your Windows XP needs to be checked for some software issues.


I hope this works for you. Kindly reply/comment for further assistance. Good Luck!

I plug it in and the blue light comes on but it's not detected


If this is windows, especially windows xp, the first thing i wuold do is try one of the back ports, and if you already plugged it in the back, a different port.

Windows XP is notorious for putting certain usb ports aside for devices that once occupied that slot.

If that doesn't work, and you have some computer skills, I would try another operating system or another machine.

A good test would be to either take it to you local library and see if a pc there recognizes it or if you can get your hands on a cd booting linux os like Ubuntu and then plug it in, that could help.

I'm afraid thats really all i can do from here. It might be that the device has gone bad, but you wont know unless you can test it on another pc and/or operating system to see if you get the same lack of response.

Green light wont stay on on memorex traveldrive


The light signals a connection between the hard disk inside the Traveldrive to its case. If it fails that means that the hard disk is dead. The unit has died, junk it and buy a new one, hard disks can't be repaired.

Some pc's don't recognize my travel drive


I have a USB hard drive, and I have noticed that on some systems the current Draw on the USB port is too high for systems with unpowered / Low power USB ports, and therefore it doesn't work for that system,

this issue can be bypassed by using a "powered" USB hub

Memorex 160gb external hd


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Sorry to be bringing you the bad news, but chances are, the Memorex is a goner. You could still of course try removing the actual/internal hard drive, connect it to an IDE/SATA to USB adapter and see if that in turn would be recognized by any of the computers. If yes, then it is the electronic/data interface of the Memorex that is defective. If likewise not also, then the actual hard drive is faulty. If the hard drive still spins and makes no mechanical noises, there is a slim chance that the contents could be recovered using file recovery software such as GetDataBack.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Detected With Error Code 10 in Device Manager in Windows XP


Have you tried also plugging in the DC usb cable into the traveldrive? I was having problems where my computer wasn't working properly with my drive unless I had it either plugged into a powered usb drive/hub or I had the DC plug in as well.
