Question about IO Magic Corporation GigaBank (I250HD35) 250 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive

1 Answer

I purchased a Gateway LX-6200 with Vista Premium 64-bit tonight and my problem is that it won't recognize my I/O Magic 250GB "Gigibank" external hard drive. It worked earlier this evening when I loaded all my files off my old Gateway that was running XP. 90 minutes later, I'm home with my new Gateway and no I can't access/transfer my files off the I/O Magic and on to my new PC.... HELP!

Did you load software ? You have a 64 bit Operating System (OS) and MANY companies don't make 64bit software. 95% of PCs are 32 bit. This is same problem other external drive makers are having, Vista 64 bit was sold as "typical" PC when it's for very powerful users. Many "drivers" that talk to the equipment must be written for 64bit software. Check the companie's site to see if it's VISTA 64 bit compatible. Bet it's not ! !

Hi jtenu2,

The reason why you're getting the error message "product does not work with this operating system", is because the software is not compatible with your operating system. The easiest way to solve this error is to check if you're running a 32 or 64 bit operating system. Just right click on my computer then select properties and it will show you the details of your system. If you're using a 64 bit operating system you also need to install a 64 bit software on it.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

> I purchased

Brand-new, I presume?

> is it a failed HDD

Yes. Take it back to where you purchased it, and get them to replace it, under warranty.

> software problem

No. It shows-up in "disk-management" as a recognized, but not-yet-initialized, device.
Thus, all the software to support it has been correctly loaded.

Exercise the warranty.
