Question about Buffalo Technology WHR-G54S Wireless Router (WHR2G54S)
Do you know how to make the Buffalo External Hard Drive with password protected feature works on all other computers?
I was able to install the password protected feature on the Buffalo External Hard Drive HD-CEU2 (poorly written owner manaul on the Secure Lock Ware software); however, the hard drive only can be use on one computer (has to assign a drive "i.e. F" for the password protected hard drive). The Buffalo Tech Support said that the Secure Lock Ware software is licnesed to only one computer. This statement appears to be wrong becuase I was able to install (download from www.buffalo.com for free) Secure Lock Ware software to my other computer. My other computer can see the hard drive in Disk Management without any assigned drive. It will not let me assign a drive to the hard drive on my other computer.

Yes the drive is compatible with XP. I have seen a slightly higher than normal # of problems with their 1TB models so this may just be a batch problem. My suggestion if there's nothing crucial on the drive is to return it an purchase a different brand.
If it's not returnable you'll have to settle for asking Buffalo for a replacement. If there's crucial data on it you will need the help of a recovery pro. In that case, comment back with your Country, State and City and I will point you to a nearby Recovery facility.
Hope this helps FixYa,

If you're using windows XP then go to start > control panel > administrative tools > computer management > disk management. See if the disk is showing up there but hasn't been allocated a drive letter, if it hasn't then right click on that drive and press "assign drive letter". Be sure to do it to the right one, you could quite easily change another drive's letter by accident otherwise.

it is a PNP (PlugNplay) device. Try using a different cable to connect to your pc. Should the problem remain, hook it up to a different computer and if it doesn't see the drive, it will be an electronic circuit failure inside the box. The data is still on the hhd but you will have to obtain a new circuit to bring the hhd back online for use.
