    I have this same hard drive, and have tried connecting through both USB and Firewire 400, both with no success.

    the light on the front blinks, which according to the websites user guide means it is in read write process? its been doing that for hours and has never shown up as a disk in disk management, or anything. i'm running windows xp and the product is claimed to be a plug and play device, but does nothing when connected to either windows xp or vista.

Not clear on what device you are saying here but you just go to the manufator's website or google a search for driver download needed to use with the make and model of your computer. If that can not be found email me at: philw19642002@yahoo.com I know a Microsoft Manager very well and I will email this issue to him for you and he will in return email me either a Link for you to use or tell me exactly what is needed. Great to have friends in high places!!!

Hallo. My simple drive hitachi 1TB 96300-41001-170 dont appear in my computer. I need driver but i cant fint it.


This should be plug-n-play. Have you tried restarting the computer with the hard drive plugged in? If that doesn't work, I would return it.

Didn't come with drives so now I need setrup raid


It looks as if this unit comes with raid pre-installed and does not have any downloadable software for it. One option would be to research Windows Software Raid which would be a "free" option.

I have a simpletech 1TB ext. hard drive BOM No.


Hi there,

You need to install the hard drive driver for the PC to recognize it. If you don't have one, just look in the internet for a free driver.
