A fantom drive is a huge thumb drive or flash drive and it should work the same way: you don't need to install it, it should work with any os and there's no software needed; you just plugged in and turn it on, that's it. your computer (if it's not old: ..2000/xp or vista) should see it a few seconds after you have plugged it into the usb port (go to my computer and look for the new hard drive under removable drives).

when you save to you fantom drive you save files as with any other file that you would save in your computer. you only need to know what the drive letter is for your fantom drive. the computer should assigned an avaliable letter. (for instance the hard drive is usually drive C, your fdd is usually A, your cd drive is usually D, so your fantom drive could be E... (or any other letter avaliable) check under my computer and look for the new added drive, there will be a letter next to it). Unless the idea of having a fantom drive is to keep it permanently attached to your computer I would not suggest for you to install programs on your computer storing the programs files on the fantom drive. this drives are supposed to be removable/portable storage.. they're supposed to be for you to store documents and other files you may need to be able to access in mobile way. of course, you can save programs but I'm hoping you're meaning the installation files for you to install a program. the acutal program files should be kept in the default location which is c:/program files which is technically the hard drive inside your computer. if you need to keep the installation file of a program so you can take it to another computer then make sense for the installation files (not the program files) to be kept on the fantom drive.

I hope it's clear.. post back if you have any other questions..
I hope it helps too.

You don't mention what kind of OS you're using - but either Windows, or OS X should see your drive regardless.

Before use:

Windows: Format the drive with NTFS.
Mac: Finder should pop up and ask you if you want to initalize the drive, you can choose 'yes' and continue.

My computers (xp and vista) cannot access my fire wire fantom drive. they see it (altho they do not recognize the name i have given it) according to disk management the HD is healthy


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 program to recover your files.

Yes it does make a large difference. I did a search on that drive and there a lot of people who had good luck getting a replacement from the manufacturer. As far as a case is concerned I recently purchased one off of amazon and it was very inexpensive. Just look up "drive enclosure" on amazon.

The disk-drive inside the enclosure is problematic.
Open the enclosure, to get the model-number and serial-number from the label on the disk-drive.
Then, access Fantom's web-site, to check the warranty-status of the drive. If the warranty still is valid, they will replace it, at minimal cost to you.
If the warranty has expired, purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and transplant it into the enclosure, to "resuscitate" your device.

Connect it to a different computer. If it still is not detected, then there is a hardware problem. Exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

I can not locate a driver for my Fantom Titanium II (TFD500C16) 500 GB USB Hard Drive. Do you know where?


Your device should not need drivers Fte Fantom/Titanium drives are fully supported by both Windows and Mac OS's.
Try replacing the cable or using a different USB port.
Sorry I cannot be of more help, The drive itself may be damaged, You can test this by physically removing the drive itself from the case and installing it internally to your system....If the drive functions properly, then the problem is within the board inside the casing.

How does a external USB SATA drive dock


yes you can but whether that would make it work or not is a different story.

It depends if the hard drive is still working or not however it would test for certain whether it is working or not.

Won't turn on


If Windows is loaded, unplug the power cord and the USB (or Firewire cable). Turn the power on it. Plug the USB cable back in.

Make sure your drive isn't connected to a USB hub. There are connection problems with those.
