Did you format the HDD before putting into your laptop? If not, try using a Linux-flavor partitioning tool such as Partition Magic or DiskPart and format the HDD.

SOURCE: My Samsung G2 Portable HX-MU032DC - hard drive - 320 GB transfer speed is only 1mb

not sure what transfer speed you are referring to
if its download speed this is related to your internet ISP modem/router and bandwidth speed

if you want to speed up your computer adding more ram is the best way of speeding your computer up
hope this helps

Your computer should recognize the drive when it's plugged into the USB port. There is no driver . If the PC can't find and assign a drive letter to it then look at a bad wire between the hard drive and the USB port.

Heb ik nog garantie

Standaard geldt er een 3 jaar beperkte garantie op deze schijven. Ik dnek dat je daar voor in aanmerking komt, afhankelijk van het defect. Maar neem anders contact op met de winkel waar je de schijf hebt gekocht. Of,.. zelf rechtstreeks met Samsung via mail of telefoon.

My mac cannot read my Samsung G3 Station

Yeah that does sound like a potential failure in the harddrive itself. I would advise taking it to a local computer repair shop that can diagnose the hard drive. They will tell you if its failing or not. Typically these diagnostics are free depending where you take it.

Also yes encrypting hard drives are good for protecting your data from unwanted access, however when you do encrypt it and then the hard drive starts to fail, it becomes very difficult for data recovery.

I am trying to install my 1tb s2 samsung potable hard drive on my laptop but i wont install it

external HDD are plug and play devices and will be recognized automatically, the problem detecting large capacity drives like this relies on what type of hardware you are using (laptop itself). what I am trying to point is that old laptop only recognize lower capacity drives and thus have this issue.
but if you are using the latest hardwares and OS, just let me know so that i can pin point the problem.

My external disk samsung hx mu064da works perfectly with windows xp but it doesnt work with windows 7

Does Win7 see it at all? You may need to use a powered hub for the unit to get it enough power to operate with the different system, assuming it's a different system.

My external hard drive is a Samsung G3 Station (2TB), aka HX-DU020EC/AAB I let it on last evening and went out for the night and day. It had been a hot day and the laptop was a bit hot (cooler on all...

That would be your power supply. No spin, no lights, no activity whatsoever .. .the first suspect is always the power supply (i.e., the AC Adapter). It's highly unlikely that the actual cord is bad because those things never go bad whereas the AC adapter often get fried., Recommendation: go to Radio Shack and use one of their generic ones that match in both wattage and AMPS (VERY important), then save yourself some money by searching on eBay for an after-market one. The only other thing that would seem to make sense would be the power connection on the hard drive itself and if that went bad and you have a choice: pay to have it fixed if the information on it is really that important or toss it and buy a new one (which will be more cost-effective if you're not that concerned about the data). Bit I doubt that's the issue. It's most likely the power supply.
Good luck!
