Unable to backup using external USB 2.0 hard drive.

I have just connected a Buffalo HD-CEU2 Drive Station to my Packard Bell Easynote R4 Laptop for the purpose of making a Backup for my laptop. Wizard tells me that the device is working but how can I backup my info. There are no setting up instructions. I am told to use the laptops CD to backup manually but I was'nt aware I had a CD. Should I have one , if so where can I get one?
Regards Barry

Buffalo's Backup Utility is an easy-to-use and fully featured backup software for Windows PCs and can be used to back up one or multiple computers with a single Buffalo external hard drive.ECO Manager is an energy efficiency tool used to conserve energy and reduce battery consumption by regulating the power usage of the hard drive, cutting power to the drive during extended periods of inactivity.RAMDISK is a simple utility that allows you to create a RAM disk on your Windows PC which creates a small, but extremely fast environment to work on files in.SecureLock software for Windows provides complete control of the data encryption on your Buffalo external hard drive, providing password protection and software data encryption.

I would plug it into a windows 7 or Vista and the computer's USB. The computer should recognize it. Click start then computer and find the icon for your drive and right click your Icon. In the drop-down window look for 'format' and that should help you format your drive. is a feature-rich suite of optional software included on many Buffalo Drive-Station and Mini Station storage products.

guess you are using a USB port to for that.....
1 - check the cable that connects the HD to the USB port...change the cable and verify
2 - connect to another PC and check if it's ok there
3 - bring another ext HD from a friend and try conencting that....check if that's OK
4 - there could be a corruption in the HD that is preventing the PC from reading it

cardinal rule for USB....not a very dependent device specialy if connecting thru USB data cables....
solution
always use a good qty USB data cable compatible with USB2....as some cheap cables are only for USB1

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.

Problem to start my external packard bell usb 2.0 250 GB hard drive


Sounds like the drive is dying. Is it externally powered, or powered through the USB port? How old is the drive? When you say 'strange' what does it sound like?
