How do i clone my hard drive onto an external hard drive

Are you using Windows? If you are using Windows, go to Start => Programs => Accessories => System Tools => Backup. In the backup wizard that opens, choose which backup type you want and you can choose your backup destination. Choose your Seagate Expansion external drive for your backup location so that Windows can store an image of your current system into your external drive.

Mine will work on my desktop but not my notebook

This is usually a corrupt USB driver for the device. On the machine that has trouble recognizing the drive:
right click my computer
click on properties
click on device manager
find the USB devices, click the plus sign to expand the tree.
Plug in your drive, see which new device appears, if it has the exclamation point, then right click on the device and click uninstall. Reboot the system.

Have simple tech 320bg , backed up files using the onboard software.... files show up and I can actually move them back up to new computer but.... can't read file (ext = NBP/NBZ file) also looks like I...

Sorry, best I can do is advise next time don't use the backup/restore s/w that came with the drive. I own the same one and found Windows Backup works flawlessly. In fact, if files are still on orig computer, re-back-them-up using Windows Backup and restore to new machine same way.

that is basically the same as having no backup... if it is important, store the data in more than one location.

it is possible that a power surge killed the usb adapter on your storage device.... you may be able to transplant the HDD onto a working adapter or USB->HDD bridge to get your data back

One thing to remember is the some of the Simple drives requires the USB mini to conect to the drive and the TWO USB connects to be plugin to the computer.
