External Hard Drive with password protected only works on 1 PC

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.

SOURCE: My DEll PC runnig XP SP3 cannot

Hi,

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,

Chris

SOURCE: problem with buffalo 1tb external hard drive

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.

SOURCE: my buffalo external hard disk

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.

My external pc drive stopped working.i under stand the Head is broken, I want to retrive important data from it. External drive is a Ministation {Buffalo} P{lease help,


You should try mounting the hard disk internally since any external HDD is actually a normal HDD in a SATA to USB enclosure. If that doesn't work , you should try finding recovery experts in your area but that might be expensive!

Reset password


Sometimes, passwordprotection is just a software-issue. In such case you can consider to hook this harddisk to another computer, to see if this protection is still active.
If it is, than it might some software located at your external harddisk. If it does, it's good to verify if it is loaded by a .ini-file.
Windows, for example is default set to check for new hardware, and if it is a harddisk, to explore it in the background. If there's an ini-file in the root, it'll read this file, which might link to a program to activate (located at your harddisk). If you're able to remove this file, you've overcome this protection.
For this, you need to go to "start" and then enter the following command : "cmd" or "command" (without the " ").
NOTE : I don't know which type of Windows you use. Some Windows-versions expect cmd, some command.
If you succeeded, a window will pop-up, with black text. Then go to the specific drive. If your drive is known as D-drive, enter "D:"
Than enter "dir autorun.ini" .
If you see this file is present, then delete this file by :
"delete d:\autorun.ini".
If succeeded type "exit"
Finally, reboot your PC and see if your protection is gone.

Simpletech external hard drive is showing as write-protected disk


Usually a protected hard drive has been in a laptop and the hard drive password is setup from the laptop's BIOS configuration. This password is embedded on the hard drive's chip.
This password protects the data from unauthorized access and must be removed before reuse in another laptop or as an external hard drive.
There are no backdoor passwords available and needs to be removed using that laptop's BIOS configuration, you need to know the password to enable you remove the password peotection.
