Question about SimpleTech SimpleDrive Pininfarina 320GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive - Blue
I connected it to my PC. I had important files on it and I need to access it, however, it won't power up. There is absolutely no sign that its turning on. I need expert advise. Thanks a lot!!!
I have the same simpletech hard drive and the same problem. Since I doubted it was under warranty, I took the case off.
I'm not a tech so I don't know the specific names of the parts of the hard drive. Anyway, there are two circuit boards. I jiggled the smaller one (which is the one that is directly hooked to the usb.) I think it must have been loose because the hard drive appeared on my laptop, and I was able to access my files.
I won't recommend others to do what I did, because I'm not a tech. But it worked for me.
