HP windows 8 does not recognize simpleteck hard drive


I purchased a SimpleTech SimpleDrive Pininfarina 500GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive - Onyx for my Vista machine and all was well. Then I purchased a Windows 7 machine. It would not recognize the devise. I contacted SimpleTech only to be told my model cannot be used on machines newer that the Vista. Recently I purchased a Windows 8.1, did a little research, plugged the SimpleTech into the 8.1 and reformatted it using the Windows feature. The SimpleTech is alive and well on my 8.1.

My windows XP OS won't recognize my SimpleTech SimpleDrive Pininfarina 300GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive


I found that often, external hard drives just don't have any active partitions and thus don't show up in Windows. Go into the control panel, administrative tools, computer management and then the disk manager and see if it has a partition. If it's just unallocated space, right click and make one.

Why won't my pc recognize an external hard drive


make sure the lead/s that attach to your hard drive are securely seated
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it

click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or

if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver:

sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,


just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems

if this fails to fix the problem

you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap


hope this helps you

Computer does not recognize simpletech


Assuming Windows, try the Device Manager and see if the (old) disk is listed there in the disk drives section.
If so, right-click it and select Uninstall. (do this while the new driver is disconnected)

That should force Windows to recognize and reinstall the new drive when you plug it again.

For other causes check out the external hard disk problems.
