Question about Fantom Titanium II (TFD500C16) 500 GB USB Hard Drive
Its a usb drive. when i turn on the power. it makes an audible alarm and wont spin up. after about a minute the blue light turns to red. and the instant it turns red i get a pop up wanting to install usb device. and i try to install it but it cant find the drivers. also it shows up in the device manager as usb device but it says that no driver have been installled. disk management shows that it hasnt been initialized. but it also shows 0 kbs. its supposed to show 500 gigs. on trying to initialize it comes up saying disk not ready. not spinning up at all. could some utility be locking the disk?
Hi I am vortash it will show 0kbs in the management if it hasn't been installed as the system can't read it . I was wondering if the hard drive was installed with the lead in the wrong way as that is what it sounds like , ( I mean in the housing the ide plug may be up side down ) I have had a couple like this and the customer has made this very common mistake ,.. check this first then if you have a disk with the Fanton program on install it without it being connected so when you reboot after pluugging it in it finds it and loads the drivers itself ... I hope this solves your problem Regards Vortash
