Question about Teac 120GB External USB 2.0 3.5 Retail Kit - HDU120/KIT HD3U-120 120 GB Hard Drive

Open Question

TEAC USB Hard drive stopped working

I have a TEAC HD3U - 120 GB external hard drive. I was using it yesterday copying pictures and organizing them. I got an error that said the drive was unavailable (I don't know hte exact error). Ever since then, I have not been able to access the data on the drive.

When I hook it to my computer, it is recognized and in My Computer, when I click on the drive, it says: "USB drive is not formatted, Do you want to format it now?" Of course, I have not formatted it.

I am running Windows XP. it shows in My Computer, but does not have any data in the size of the drive or amount used. right click -> properties shows Zeroes in Capacity, used and free. I rebooted my computer, and the drive, and tried the drive on a different computer. Got the same results.

Please help. Thanks,

-Brett

I have the Lacie Minidisk Ethernet 500 GB that contains all my house PC backup. I both an USB Minidisk Lacie (1 GB) in order to use MySafe feature but it never worked.


Hello Elio,

Use MySafe to back up the files stored on the Ethernet Disk mini Home to an attached USB storage device. This way, if files on the Ethernet Disk mini are damaged or accidentally deleted, you can restore them to their original locations.
There are three main steps to using MySafe,Connecting an external USB hard drive,Backing up files to the external USB hard drive,Restoring files to the Ethernet Disk mini (if necessary)
Before you can back up files, you need to connect a hard drive to your Ethernet Disk mini via the USB port on the back. Use a hard drive that is USB 2.0 compatible.
While connecting an external hard drive make sure your Ethernet Disk mini is turned on and connected to your network.Turn on the external USB hard drive.Connect the external hard drive's USB cable to the USB port on the back of the Ethernet Disk mini, just like you would connect the external hard drive to your computer.Confirm that the drive is properly connected. Log in and click on the Administer HipServ link. Click on USB External Storage under System.
To back up files, navigate to the file or folder you want to back up to the external hard drive and click on the disk icon in the "Backup" column of the file list.When you back up files to MySafe, the Ethernet Disk mini duplicates the file path in MySafe so that everything you back up is organized in MySafe just as in its original location. So, if you copy a file from MyLibrary, a MyLibrary folder will appear in MySafe, with all folders leading to the backed up file.

Always click the Safely Remove Drive button on the USB External Storage before unplugging your MySafe external hard drive. Wait for the interface to change and for the Use Drive button to appear before disconnecting the USB cable from the Ethernet Disk mini. Failure to safely remove your external hard drive before disconnecting the USB cable can cause data loss and/or damage the drive. Always use the Safely Remove Drive feature when disconnecting an external hard drive.

I bought a external hard drive and want to backup my dvd's on it. What do I need in order to do this?


All you need is a good working DVD ROM and a 2.0 usb port.

Plug in your hard drive to the usb port.
It should install and be ready to use in a few minutes.
Insert your DVD's
Open My Computer and open your dvd disk (right click on the icon and choose open)
Open My Computer again but this time open your newly inserted hard drive (there will be an icon naming the drive)
Now, just use copy / paste from the dvd to the hard drive (you may have to create folders on the hdd to keep it organized)

Hope this helps.

External hard drive won't let me transfer files from my Macbook.


Has it only just stopped working or has it been unable to work from the beginning? Are the files you are trying to transfer to the Hard disk already in use? I would recommend reformatting the hard drive. Formatting will put the hard drive back to it's original state. It will wipe all the data though, so make sure you back it up first. If that doesn't work then I'm not sure. Macs are not usually prone to viruses.
