Well hmmmmmmmmmm......well i hav never worked with simpletech more than once.. but well sorry to say it but you might have to go to a repair shop and ask them 2... itll run you no more than 50...because you might need to replace your laptop if you mess with it 2 much.... i have had 12 laptops and they all break because the mother board fries or because the drive is to filled with memory it wont delete anything...so whatever you do good luck

HP windows 8 does not recognize simpleteck hard drive


I purchased a SimpleTech SimpleDrive Pininfarina 500GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive - Onyx for my Vista machine and all was well. Then I purchased a Windows 7 machine. It would not recognize the devise. I contacted SimpleTech only to be told my model cannot be used on machines newer that the Vista. Recently I purchased a Windows 8.1, did a little research, plugged the SimpleTech into the 8.1 and reformatted it using the Windows feature. The SimpleTech is alive and well on my 8.1.

My windows XP OS won't recognize my SimpleTech SimpleDrive Pininfarina 300GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive


I found that often, external hard drives just don't have any active partitions and thus don't show up in Windows. Go into the control panel, administrative tools, computer management and then the disk manager and see if it has a partition. If it's just unallocated space, right click and make one.

You will need to download a Windows 7 driver for the drive from SimpleTech. Chances are VERY great that there are no Windows 7 drivers developed for this drive. A call to SimpleTech's support line may provide you with a workaround if you can't locate a driver online.

General questions regarding simpletech simpledrive.


You probably have to initialize and/or format the drive.

Right click my computer and click Manage (assuming windows xp)

Go to disk management

See if you see the drive listed somewhere there. Should show approximately 950gb disk drive

If so right click that drive listed and choose either format, or create partition.

If you create the parttiion, make sure to click quick format, otherwise it will take a long time.

Hope this helps
