SOURCE: I bought a Simpletech signature
Your USB port is incapable of supplying the required amps of power. ALL these little 2.5" drives need up to 1000 milliamps of juice,
regardless of who makes them. I have yet to find any PC that can supply more than 500ma from a single USB port (and even that is optimistic). That is precisely why several portable drive manufacturers supply a USB splitter lead to facilitate an extra 500ma of power. (But some charge extra for this lead).
SImpletech supply the splitter lead with the drive, so please try it, as it may solve the problem.
In addition, some makers, including Simpletech, provide a 5 volt auxiliary power socket on the drive case in (unacknowledged) admission that many people do not have a second spare USB port and that, even if they have, it isn't a reliable source of power anyway! Also, they don't supply the necessary PSU and they deliberately withhold the necessary specification for the needed PSU. You need a 5 volt, 1000 milliamp power adapter costing anything from $10 to $30 (ridiculous!)
These solutions should be tried before assuming the PCs USB port is faulty, because it 'probably' isn't.
