Hi. How do you open a flash drive anyway? Cause me... I'll just right click the drive then click the "Explore" menu and thats the way to avoid virus menu like the Autoplay(once you double-click the drive, it wont open 'cause it has an extra Autoplay menu}. By the way, does your PC virus-free?Try to check the drive by right-clicking the drive. If you see two Autoplay menus and the other Autoplay is highlighted or the font is thick, your PC surely has a virus. You must remove it first.
Or try to go to do this:
Contol Panel/Administrative Tools/Computer Management/Disk Management and look for the drive. Right-click it and click the Open or Explore menu.
I hope I help you with this kind of suggestion.

My Computer suddenly does not read my pqi HDD 551 External drive


Check the following
  • With the drive plugged in on powered on place your hand on it should be able to feel it vibrating (if no its not getting power or dead)
  • If power and vibrating put your ear to the drive (repeating and squealing are bad, crunching sound is generally ok)
  • With the drive plugged in and it sounds ok and it's vibrating[platters are spinning] right click on "Computer"/"My Computer" select manage > Disk Management, locate your drive if it is listed try to initialize it
  1. Right Click drive, properties, hardware tab, select drive, properties, volume tab and click populate
If it wont populate or doesn't show at all in storage manager at all either the drive itself is bad or the control in the external enclosure is bad. You can attempt to remove the drive from the enclosure and plug it in directly into the computer but this tends to void it's warranty. If the drive works however you can simply buy a new enclosure for about $12

I connect the external disk pqi h560, but the computer does not detect it and i cannot access any files on it. it sees it, but does not appear in My Computer. what can i do?


Hi,

Go to disk management by right clicking on My Computer selecting Manage and you should see the drive there, right click on it and explore; this will give you access to the data on it.

This is a bug in Windows, to fix right click the device in Device Manager and remove then unplug and reboot the PC, once at a desktop plug the USB device into another port and all should be OK.

Hope this helps!!!

I have no user guide for my sandisk cruzer micro 512 mb and want to restore some of its files to my pc. How do I do this?


If the files are still on the flash drive you can simply plug it into your computer and move the files off. if the files are no longer on the flash drive then you are out of luck because they are gone forever. I hope this helps and have a nice day!

Simple Tech HD failing- takes 4 hours to tranfer 512 MB!?


Not exactly a solution but I have had the same problem with one of these Simple Tech Signature Mini 320's for a while. Real finicky. Will only be recognized on direct connected to MB USB ports and even then with Win 7 or XP I get the "This USB device can perform faster if you connect it to a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port." no matter what ports I connect it to. While having this issue on this "main" computer I have previously connected it to some other computer (don't remember which, now) and it connected at 2.0 speed. What's going on??

MY pqi 4gb travelling disk is not working actually it is not getting connect with PC.Any hardware problem?


if you already tried different computers, and checked if the USB port is a known good port, then it might be your USB flash drive thats having problems. Check if your flash drive has lifetime warranty thru PQi's website...you might be able to get that 1 replaced..

Hope it helps..

USB with no files says it's full (Mac computer)


I had a similar problem.  There are hidden files taking up your space.  You can clear this by using disk utilities and clearing the drive. Takes less than five minutes.  Good luck

Simpletech 320gb hard drive


the hard drive inside of the external device is damaged. probably the drive head scratched one or more of the platters inside of the drive. this is a common occurance with laptops and computers when they take a dive off of a desk.

need to either get a replacement drive or another external hard drive.

to work with vista you must be having the minimum system requirements of 512 mb ram otherwise you will b experience slow...

if you have 512 mb ram or more than that then may be it s operating system problem just try reinstalling vista again....
and the drive in which the os lies may be in ntfs file system format ... so it is slow.....
