Bytecc 2.5 Mobile HDD Hotdrive

I have a bytecc 2.5 Hard Disk Drive, My son gave me with no intruction manual. I plugged it into my labtop and it installed itself... it has an icon of the drive and is listed as New Volume (E:)How do I open it and use it to store information and my pictures. With no software it wouldn't install under Windows 98. But it's fine under XP. Is there some where I can find out information for this drive. Should I go straight to bytecc's website. I haven't tried that. Thank's joymi2

Looks like you need to Format the new drive.
Your computer can see it, but cannot access it, right?
You can right click on the new E: drive and select the Format option.
If that doesn't work, then you must right click on My Computer, and select Manage from the pop up menu.
Then click on the option Disk Management at the left.
Soon you'll get a graphic view of the hard drives currently installed on your system.
Now just select the drive you want to activate E:\, right click on the rectangled area, and select FORMAT.
Once the process is completed you will be able to store information, pictures, etc.

Hi, you simply use Explorer & to use the "Drive" you simply access it, by double clicking on the Drive Icon, and when it has "Opened" one can then make New Directories (Folders) and then Cut, Copy or Paste Files, Photos data etc as you wish. When you wish to "Save" ensure you select the "E:\" drive as the location to store your stuff. The link below will help you...... www.cybertechhelp.com/tutorial/article/ how-to-create-folders

You don't need any specific software for Windows 2000 or above - the operating system will have the correct drivers built-in.

It should mount either on FireWire or USB (depends on which version you have - there's also a combo version).

If you're connecting via FireWire, you will need to make sure you are using a powered 6-pin FireWire connection. If your computer only has a 4-pin FireWire port, it won't provide power to the drive, so the drive won't spin up, and the system won't see it.

If you're connecting via USB, make sure you're connected to a USB 2.0 port. If you're connecting to USB 1.1, you need to connect both USB connectors on the supplied USB cable to the PC. One connector is data+power, and the other connector (the one that "branches off") is just power.

Check whether the device appears in Device Manager (hit Windows-Pause, or right-click My Computer go to Properties, Hardware, then click Device Manager).

It should appear as a hard disk drive.

Since your friend was using it on a Mac, it might be formatted as a Mac volume so Windows won't mount it as a drive letter.
Right-click My Computer, go to Manage, then click Disk Management. Either a window will pop up and ask you about initializing the disk, or an additional disk with "Unknown parititon" will appear as Removable Disk. Whatever you do, do not mess with any of the disk blocks with drive letters, especially C: as that's your system drive.

The easier method may simply be to ask your friend for format the disk as FAT32 for you. Then it'll mount in Windows and you can format it as NTFS if you need to.

I don't think BYTECC sells complete external hard drives. But they do sell the enclosures. People buy the enclosures and install a hard drive in them and, now you have a working external hard drive. I have don't this before, but I have never used BYTECC before. You can download the drivers for there enclosures at there website:

http://www.byteccusa.com/

They have several different versions, Just pick the correct one, hopefully the enclosure has some markings or a sticker identifying the model.
