Question about SimpleTech SimpleDrive 160 GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive
Shows red light for power when plugged into the usb no longer shows the light that shows that the laptop has recognized by the hard drive, nor does the Laptop show the external storage on "my Computer"
Try plugging your HD into another desktop/laptop to see if your HD is functioning well on a different computer. Could be the USB cable problem.

click start control panel administration 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
