This problem is caused by hard drive only. your hard disk is not working properly so open the cover and remove circuit board then you can see the hard disk attached with circuit board .please remove the HDD and connect if you have spare HDD(2.5 inch HDD also you can use) please connect and see it will work.my grand entertainer is working with 2.5 sata HDD now

SOURCE: my new portable hdd is not getting detected on my xp

Your USB ports may be version 1.1

You need a USB "Y" cable.
The USB Y cable uses two USB ports on your laptop and the third plugs into the external HDD.

Check RadioShack or maybe the vendor has a USB Y cable.

This will work!

SOURCE: My imation USB Hard Drive once i connect to USB

Sounds like it's not getting enough power from the USB port on the laptop. Drives like this usually have a 2nd USB connector for more power from a 2nd port. If you don't have a free port, you can buy a powered hub and use that for the drive. It has its own power adaptor so will provide enough power for the drive when both drive connectors are plugged in.

SOURCE: Solve Your "Imation Odyssey HDD Cartridge

Do you have more than one of the cartridge drives?

If you do, a simple test is try another drive, if they both failed to respond in a similar fashion the bay has issues and may need to be replaced. If the other drive works properly in the bay that cartridge or drive inside is likely the problem and will need to be sent for data recovery if you need the files back or just scrapped for a new unit if there's nothing crucial on it.

If you require data recovery, comment back with your Country, State and City and I will be happy to recommend a nearby facility that can help you out.

Imation HDD Pro Media player 500 gb. orange light flashing but not detected by my laptop.


You "killed" it -- either the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the case, or the disk-drive inside the case.
Remove the disk-drive from the case, and install it in a replacement case (with replacement power-supply).

Imation 11795 driver WindowsXP


IMATION stopped making the "LS-120" (Laser Servo) drive many years ago, when USB-interface memory-sticks became cheaper & faster. Imation did have parallel-port device-driver software for Windows 95/98/ME, but never updated them for Windows NT/2000/XP.

Instead, disassemble the case, and you will find an IDE-interface Imation LS-120 drive inside. Connect the same "smaller" 4-pin power-connector that used to connect to a 1.44 Mbyte 3.5-inch diskette, set the "master/slave" jumper, and connect an 80-pin IDE ribbon-cable, and connect the other end of the ribbon-cable to an IDE socket on the motherboard.

Hi, Brand : Imation Model : Apollo M250 Capacity


Hi, The hard drive Apollo M250 does not have any locking mechanism. It only has backup software. If your computer does not detect the HDD, it only means that the HDD is already broken.
