Question about SimpleTech Pininfarina 80GB External USB 2.0 SP-UE25/80 (SPUE2580) Hard Drive
I thought it was the usb port in my computer, but then i hooked my flash drive to the computer and it read. All that I get from the drive is the spinning blue light when you turn it on, and then a red light blinks about 7 times and that's it. The last thing I did was delete a bunch of junk files I didn't need, which caused my computer to stop responding. After that, I've got an I/O error message, and then my hard drive stopped responding. Someone PLEASE help!!! All my recording studio files are on there & without those I'll be in debt : (

I had a similar problem with a SimpleTech 250g Pininfarina USB drive.
I went through the drivers, the power supply, the USB cables, and the various
computers, USB cards and Operating systems.
Finally I opened the case and found the disk drive was mounted too far
forward, causing the IDE connector to barely touch. I loosened the mount screws,
slid the drive back towards the connector, tightened everything down and it works.

It could be that it's internal power supply burnt out,
in which case the drive itself could still be fine.
Try opening up the external case, and removing the drive.
Once you do, plug it in to your computer directly using its SATA cables, and see if that works.
Hope I helped,

Open your Simpletech by removing two screws from the back --> you need to remove the label in the back, and pull the I/O card up towards you. The I/O card comes off easily.You need to buy a BYTECC USB 2.0 to IDE/SATA ADAPTER Kit ( you can buy this adapter on line, It ranges from $16 to over $30). Now connect the USB port from the adapter kit to your USB port, and plug in the Adapter kit to a 115 volt power outlet. If the hard drive is not shot, that is, you feel it spinning, you should be able to see the drive, and copy the data from your SimplechTecj drive to your PC.
