PC Locks Up

I just bought a SDCZ6-2048RB from Circuit City. When I plug the device into my Compaq desktop and the flash drive starts to initialize the desktop locks up. Any suggestions?

Re: PC Locks Up

Try booting with the device already in the USB port. If that doesn't work, try doing the same accept into safe mode. Once you can recognize the drive, reformate the drive. This might resolve your issue.

Just bough this hard drive, and when I plugged it in, drivers were installed but it was not recognized by the computer. Tried to initialize it through disk management (windows), but got a cyclic redundancy...

If you just bought this drive, I would suggest to return it to the store and ask for a replacement. Don't forget to bring in your receipt of the store, when you bought it.

Hello Sir, hi, If a PC does not recognize your external hard drive, you need first to check if the USB port is working, to check simply plug another USB device such as flash drive, if the port is fine, check to see if the USB port is a version 1.1 or a version 2.0, and look if your external hard drive is compatible or does it needs a DEVICE DRIVER, A USB 2.0 device may work on a USB 1.1, just reduced speed, and last try to see if your PC is the problem and not the Hard drive, have your Hard drive plug on another PC, visit a friend and check if you could use his or her PC to see if your hard drive is bad. Now if you find your hard drive is bad, its either the Interface circuit OR the physical hard disk itself. You can check your hard disk, simply disassemble the unit and gain access to the hard disk. either SATA or IDE, plain Hard disk plug it on your PC. see if you can access the disk. If yes back up your files. your Interface circuit at this point is bad. If your hard drive is bad, buy a new hard drive, as your replacement. keep me posted

I was given a Soyo Cigar HD20 20GB USB 2.0 External Hard Drive by my son. No directions came with it. How do I use it? When I plug it into the usb port, my screen shows that new hardware was detected, but...

Some devices where shipped out without being properly initialized at the factory. This causes Windows not to be able to recognize the device when first plugged in.

1 - Download the EZRecover Software from: ...

2 - Be sure your CigarUSB device is connected to the PC

3 - Unzip the file, and install the program.

4 - Run the program

5 - You'll notice that it will detect that it is a UsbFlashDisk, and it's disk size (256 mb, 128mb, etc.) That is your first indication that your device isn't broken. If it's not detected, then perhaps you'll be better off returning the device to where you bought it.

6 - Press the Recover button. It'll prompt a warning. Just go ahead. The lights (if visible) on your device will start blinking. That's your second indication your CigarUsb device is working.

7 - Once it finishes, remove your device and restart your PC

8 - Once it reboots, plug it back in. It'll start detecting it correctly and automatically configuring everything (in windows XP at least).

9 - Goto and find your CigarUsb model. Download the correct application tools software for it. (In my case, it's a Cigar2Pro - 256mb.).

10 - Install the software. It may ask you to reboot the PC. If it does, go ahead and do it.

11 - Once you reboot (if you where asked to), run the program: "USB Flash Drive Utility"

12 - It'll ask for a password. Just press OK

13 - You need to repartition your device. Press partition.

14 - Set how much memory you want for the secure partition (with password protection) and the standard one. In my case '0' for secured partition, 256mb for Standard. Press Start.

15 - Finally, you need to format your new partition(s). Press Format. Type in a label. Press Start.

Once it finishes, you can start using your device. You DON'T need to do this in every single computer you encounter. All this is only needed to be done the very FIRST time you use the device.

Hope this helps. Please dont forget to rate or vote for the answer! All the best!

The hardrive will stop spinning

Your USB ports might not be 2.0 if it is an older PC. You might also check the BIOS setting to allow your computer to use USB 2.0 devices.

Otherwise, I need more info on model and which ports used. For example, Front panel ports often get their wires pull from the connector on the motherboard.

Other places to check if PC the device manager. see if the OS even sees the HD when it initially plugs in.

Icon won't appear on desktop.

It is possible that your USB flash drive is dead.
The other solution is to try it on some other USB port of your PC (if you used front panel USB ports now try it on the back panel).
If it also wont work, try to connect it to some other PC
If it works with an other PC, your USB ports are dead
You can try going to device manager, and to unintall USBs and reinstalling them

WD portable HD light is on when plug in to USB port. Computer fails to recognize the device. Serial Number: WXE507155627 Model Number: WDXMS1600TN


There are a few reasons this would happen, The options are a faulty driver in your PC, a failed circuit board in the enclosure or a failed circuit in the drive itself.

First try the drive on a different PC and see if it works. If it does reply back and we can look into the failed driver. If it doesn't then take it to your local PC shop and have the technicians move the hard drive into a new enclosure.

If it works in the new enclosure buy the enclosure and your on the way. If it doesn't, then the hard drive itself is the problem. If that is the case you will need the help of a data recovery pro to retrieve your data. If this is the case reply with your location(Country, State and City) and I will assist you in finding a reputable pro to assist you.

Hope this helps FixYa,
