SOURCE: SimpleTech SimpleDrive Pininfarina 320GB Power up problem

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,
Tom

SOURCE: General questions regarding simpletech simpledrive.

You probably have to initialize and/or format the drive.

Right click my computer and click Manage (assuming windows xp)

Go to disk management

See if you see the drive listed somewhere there. Should show approximately 950gb disk drive

If so right click that drive listed and choose either format, or create partition.

If you create the parttiion, make sure to click quick format, otherwise it will take a long time.

Hope this helps

You may have a power supply that is defective or is failing. Try another power supply, 12V, 2A, center pin positive.

I have a simpletech 1TB ext. hard drive BOM No.


Hi there,

You need to install the hard drive driver for the PC to recognize it. If you don't have one, just look in the internet for a free driver.

External Drive is making noises and computer wont recognize


Just to be sure try the drive on another computer. If still the drive is not detected you may have a problem with the drive's head.

Hi Would you tell me how long 1tb IOMEGA hard drive formating will take?


It depends on how it is connected to the computer. A drive connected through an eSATA port should be able to format 1TB in just 1 - 2 hours depending on how loaded the system is (background processes/services, other use while it is formatting, etc). If it is connected via USB2.0, you are looking at approximately 6.3 times longer or up to 13 hours.

If you could reach and constantly maintain the theoretical maximum throughput on eSATA, it would only take about 45 minutes.
