When you connect it to the pc does it detects the device or nothing happens.if nothing then it is necessary to get the device first detected to the pc.then only it will work.

I have the Western Digital My Book Essential Edition 250GB External Hard Drive. I have moved and lost the power cord. I purchased the DYNEX 500ma Universal AC Adapter as a replacement. When I plug the...


I don't have a photo of the AC adapter, but if you look on it the Voltage and Amperage specifications are;

Input: 100-240VAC / 50~60Hz
Output: 12VDC / 2A

This means the Input power can be from 100 volts to 240 Volts AC, and at 50 to 60 Hertz

The Output power is 12 Volts DC at no more than 2 Amp's. (Amperes)

Asian Power Devices Inc. has a model DA-24B12 that fits these specs.
Also a Wattac AC adapter model number - BAO362Zl-8-A01 will work.

Otherwise just use a 12 Volt, 2 Amp power pack, with a positive on center contact, and a 2mm pin hole

I plug in both usb connectors, and nothing happens. Device does not appear on laptop. Pinfarina 160GB, red case.


Try connecting it to a different computer -- if it still fails to work, then there is nothing wrong with the computer; the fault is with the SimpleTech unit (either the USB-to-disk-drive adapter, or the disk-drive inside the case).

Hi dear smart guys! :) I just plugged in my lacie and what happends is, that nothing actually happends :( No pop up on screen, can't find it when i'm looking under "computer" I DO see it...


It's definitely not Win7. The Operating system has nothing to do with it. You'd need to isolate the issue first. It should be just a plug and play device like a usb flash drive.

Try plugging the HDD to another computer. If it works, then it's a problem with the computer. If it doesn't, then you can focus on the HDD itself.

You can also try the following steps:
- Try turning the computer on while the USB HDD is plugged to see if it's going to be detected. Plug it directly to the usb port and not thru a hub or extended usb cord.
- Go to the device manager and remove all of the USB host controller under USB controller, which is usually the last controllers located below. Then follow the step above.

There are other things that you can do to check it but try the steps above first and let me know what happens before we go further.

Hope this helps.

SanDisk 2gb flash drive not responding


Go to "Control Panel>>>System>>>Device Manager.Once in Device Manager,then click on "Disk Drives" (Make sure your flash drive is plugged in before you do this).You should see your flash drive listed by it's name (SanDisk Cruzer...). If you don't see your flash drive listed, the computer is not recognizing it and your drive may have been damaged by static electricity. If your flash drive is listed, then it's a more complicated troubleshooting procedeure than I can Walk you through in one posting. So try looking in "Device Manager" and then let me know what happened.

I can't download from my FD device to my computer


Make sure that your power supply is ok, I mean to say that check the connction. If it is ok then check that you are giving the actual power input to your hard drive. Don't connct the hard drive again. First check the power supply to the wall is having the same out put that required by the hard drive as input. Let me know the result.

SimpleTech hard drive not found by my computer


This may or may not help, but it worked for me! After about 4 hours of trying everything (Device Manager/Uninstall, Disk Management, etc..) nothing at all would work. The USB external hard drive would power up but when you plug it in, the New Found Hardware will pop up and search unsuccessfully for drivers for a PLUG AND PLAY external drive!?!?!

In any event, I simply plugged another USB drive into my laptop (and desktop) and viola! The new hard drive was recognized and installed immediately as 'plug and play' should do. I then unplugged the new drive and tried plugging in the one that was recognized and all of the sudden....IT WORKS AGAIN!!!!

This fix might not help anyone who doesn't have a second USB external drive, but you could try plugging another USB device in and get it to load and then unplug it and try your drive. It worked for me on my laptop and then I did the same thing to my desktop (which also wouldn't recognize it) and it worked on the desktop too! Problem solved for me, thank GOD!

Hopefully, this bypass can save you a few hours of google time and unwanted anguish. Like I said, you may not have another USB drive but try plugging in any other USB device until it loads and then unplug it and then plug in your USB drive that wasn't working. It worked perfectly for me.

Hope it helps!!!!

Computer just won't recognize reader


Was referring to the configuration. P3, P4, etc. Older boards that have a USB 1.1 port sometimes have compatibility issues with some USB 2.0 devices.

I recommend trying it on other XP-based computers. If it still doesn't work then the device has a problem. If it works then it could be a compatibility issue with your PC.

Hope this helps.

Does not work


I believe what happened is that when the wrong adapter was connected it damaged some of the electronics inside. Specifically I would guess some filtering capacitors. You would need to open it to fix it. If you need the data I would think that the drive inside would still work so you could take it out and get the data off of it. Otherwise I would see about sending it back for warranty replacement.
