SOURCE: apparently i need to reboot my BUFFALO &

Apparently -- if you don't know how to reboot -- you should perhaps ask some computer wizard among your friends for advice.

You don't reboot a hard drive (or any other device), you reboot THE COMPUTER. Which means you shut it down and restart it. During the startup process (which is synonymous to "booting") the computer checks all its internal interfaces and external sockets, takes an inventory of all devices and checks if they work properly.

SOURCE: When i connect Buffalo Mini

An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files.
For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge guarantee".

I/O Error Device means that the pc cannot communicate with your external HDD - either the USB cable is broken (replace it) or its control board has failed. If it's the latter then the Buffalo is dead, get a new one.

External Buffalo Hard Disk 500 Gb model no HD-PF500U2/BK-AP not detecting when connnected to a laptop or a desktop PC


Check the usb port function in the computer bios settings and be sure that it is set to yes. Connect properly your external drive. If it has two wire usb connections, use both to obtain the maximum power that will be need by your drive.

Setup Process


no need for installation whatsoever for this kind of drive. just plug it in, and its ready for use... but i suggest not to move or even touch the standard folders inside it. rather, make a separate location for the files you are going to save in it. i hope it helps..
