Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43).

Try reinstalling the driver software for your external drive.

Did you plug in a usb flash card? something that may have reassigned drive letters?

No PC stated
No OS stated. (operating system) nor if PC is internet connected.
no Simplesafe model stated, is it the 3.5" HDD? version
id yes it needs power pack to use it. HDD uses huge currents to start up. and spin.
USB ports?
if the drive fails on all PCs, the drive is bad. (or was erased by grimlin's in the night)
plug in the power pack 12vdc is correct.
do not mix it up with other packs or boom.

The drive is bad. Try it on a different usb port. Try it on another computer. If it can't be recognized, it's bad.

Can A HP MD1000h be formatted for NTFS?

Plug in the drive and wait for Windows to recognize it. Right click on Computer (or My Computer in Windows XP) and click on Manage. Expand Storage (if it's not already expanded) and then click on Disk Management. Scroll down in the lower panel until you find your external dive in the list. Right click on the right column and select Format. Give the Volume a name like HP1TB or whatever you want to call it. Ensure that NTFS is the File System type. Check Perform a Quick Format. Then click OK. WARNING: THIS WILL DELETE ALL DATA ON YOUR DRIVE. Windows should ask if you want to assign a drive letter to the drive after it completes. If it doesn't just right click again on the right column and select Change Drive Letter.

I conect to my pc a new hp md1000h hdd but in my windows explorer only see: unit CD (O:) HP Loncher.exe, buno responding

Hi, your external hard drive features and automatic backup function, that is what the "launcher.exe" is for. If you don't need such a function, you go to Control Panel>Administration Tools>System Management and on the left you will find a "disk management" section. There you will find your hard drive information, and will be able to format and create partition on it, by doing so you will most likely be able to use it properly. If, instead, you need the automatic backup function of your hard drive, you can try starting the "launcher.exe" as administrator, and, if that does not work, you can contact HP support to ensure that your system is compatible with your hard drive's functions. Hope it helped, Franz
