How do I use your Verbatim? Please give me instructions


From Verbatim "Installing your portable hard drive is extremely simple - just use the included mini-USB cable to connect your hard drive to any free USB port on your computer. On Windows computers, a new icon will appear in My Computer representing your hard drive. On Mac OS systems, your hard drive will appear on the desktop as a new disk."

Verbatim drive regularly does not show up as available. I have to unplug it and try to get it to reset. do you know how to fix?


Hello!
I checked the Verbatim website for common Windows/USB drive problems. Since I don't know your exact model the information I'm giving is pretty general, but from the Verbatim website it looked like something that could help.

For one, Verbatim says you don't need drivers for your drive to work, but if you're having issues installing their driver might help. Go to their website (Verbatim.com) and in the top left go to "Support". From there you should be able to enter your model and download drivers. The installation instructions are usually on the same page.

The second potential fix is to increase the USB power to the drive. The Verbatim site says that some of their drives require plugging into 2 USB ports to get enough power to run the drive. If this is the case for your drive, you should've gotten a USB cable that is shaped like a "Y". The two wires at the "top" of the "Y" go into two USB ports on your computer. It also said that if even you didn't get the cable you could still be having power issues. You'll have to go to the Support section of the site and enter your model number to see if this could still be the problem.

Good luck! Remember to rate the responses you get!

Need drivers


Below is the link for the FireLite 160GB portable HD. Drivers are only needed for win98. 2000/xp/vista are plug and play. The manuals are included at this link.

Additionally, there could be a problem with power supply. A switch is on the back...USB or EXT. EXT is for an external supply. (http://www.verbatim.com/products/detail.cfm?product_id=38819801-1143-3415-5FE3682C49A8E37F&cat_id=3883B708-1143-3415-5FB9F3C74069A098) USB is naturally for a USB cable. Clicking might indicate low power when using USB. Switch to the external adapter or get a USB cable with two connectors for the computer (the extral cable draws more power),

good luck.

Verbatim fw/usb 250 won't come ont


Did you buy it from Geeks.com? I just got one today and had exactly the same problem. It came with a long USB cable and I happened to have a short cable that goes to my MP3 player. I swapped the USB cable and poof, XP recognized it.
