Try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this data recovery program called asoftech data recovery to recover your files.

SOURCE: Fantom Drive problem

Try connecting it to a Windows XP Pro pc. Right click on "My Computer", left click on "Manage". Once the new management console opens, left click on "Disk Management". If the USB drive is recognized by the pc, you will be able to right click on it, and select "Delete Partition". WARNING: YOU ARE DELETING EVERYTHING ON THE DRIVE! Once it's done, right click on the drive again, and select "Create New Partition". Proceed thru the wizard that pops up, and format it. You will have a choice of using FAT32, but, if the partition is larger than 32 GB, it will fail (it's a Windoze limitation), so NTFS is your only choice, unless you use a 3rd party utility, Win98 (supports huge FAT32 partitions, 4 TB, I think), or Linux.(preferred). Good Luck, hopefully everything will work out fine. T-Power

Drive lights up but cannot see it on computer


The drive may most likely be dead. You can use a program like recuva to see files but you would need to see the drive. To see the drive you may have to take it out of its outer layer and connect the drive to a sata cable within the computer. The computer may recognize it that way. Now if that seems to difficult i recommend taking it to a computer repair shop where they can pull the data off for you or contacting the manufacturer and maybe the product is still under warranty.

The Hard Drive is on. Blue light is on and I can hear the drive working. It doesn't, however, show up in disk management or isn't detected by my laptop.


Hello vunit2007,
I've read your "post," and I think that the best solution to the 'problem is to:
Get an "Update on the Drivers and Software.
"Most situations cannot be solve by 'pressing a couple of buttons'; sometimes
We have to go into the "Control Panel," or go to a "Website" to get updates for the computer,
"Drivers are needed for Hardware, eg, (Hard Drives, Printers, CD / DVD Players, Audio Sound, Speakers, Microphones, Mouse, Keyboards, and Webcams), to work correctly; also, some Software products."
"Upgrading the computer in any way, or added a 'new' software product?"
Causes the System Configurations, to change!
Many cases involving "Upgrades from an 'older' {Operating System, eg. XP or Vista}, to Windows 7, can cause a change in "Hardware Devices," not functioning properly; or not to work at all!"
"These easy instructions will help you solve these issues, and hopefully, we'll be able to fix the problem the first time."

"This is what you need to do first!"
1. Click on the Website [below].
2. Download the Fantom G-Force MegaDisk {NAS Source Code}, at the [botton of the page].
3.Turn-off the computer.
4. Disconnect the Hard drive.
5. Restart the computer.
6. Install the Drivers.
7. Restart the computer again.
8. Connect the Hard Drive.
9. Turn on the Hard Drive.
10. Check the in the -> Control Panel -> Device Manager -> Hard Drive / Mega Disk!
11. Check in the Disk Management.

"Let me know if you need more help, if it didn't fix the problem?
Post a "Comment" to get more help.
"I would appreciate it if you let me know!

Have a Fantom TFD500U16 HD. It was working properly for last 2 years and in one night I did take the backup but in the morning it does not get recognized. Though the laptop that was doing it got rebuilt...


My computer does not recognize the Fanton titanium drive. It was working properly for last 2 years and contains and all of a sudden I cannot see it's drive location once I connect it to multiple computers in my household.

I suspect that one of my teenagers "moved" a file instead of copying it and somehow corrupted the file structure. By the way, I have already tried to see if it is a problem that can be fixed by assigning a drive using Disk MGMT. It is not recognized there either.

Drive NOT being recognized by WinXP


Put your ear to the drive and verify if it is making any strange low level sounds. Check to make sure the usb connection wasnt affected. YOu wont need a driver as it appears to be hardware related. Either the enclosure or drive may be failing.
