Question about Computers & Internet
My wife has bought a Verbatim 1 Terabyte External HardDrive, and a little pop up window comes up saying ''One of the USBdevices attached to this computer has malfunctioned and Windows doesnot recognized it.'' It was working fine and now not at all. Ithasn't been dropped or anything either. It is not powered by USB butmust be plugged in to work. I just can't figure out what the heck hashappened, or how to fix it without taking it in to a professional andpay squillions of dollars to get it fixed, if it can be fixed. Can youplease help? Thank you in advance for your time, it's very muchappreciated, It's a Verbatim 1 Terabyte External Hard Drive Model#47512.
Why don't you try plugging it into another USB port?
Although, your best shot is going to verbatim.com/support/support-article.cfm?support_id=7B8B6B2C-1422-1392-A8B4CF52416BBF75&supportType=Article and follow that troubleshooting until the problem gets resolved.
Something that could really help us to help you, is if you are running windows XP or windows Vista.

I had the same problem.
It would seem that, as the error does not state that the disc is faulty, that the problem is with communication between the USB port and the hard drive. I came to the conclusion that the hard disc can be removed from the casing, and with a SATA docking station similar to the one shown here, http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200537616453&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT, I am now writing to my hard drive via my docking station as I put this post together. It works perfectly. Another way around the problem would be to buy a new hard disc enclosure.
