Question about RPM Vox 750GB 3.5in USB 2.0 & eSATA External 7200rpm - EXSA-35C-750G5K 750 GB Hard Drive

VOX 500gb won't connect to PC.

Bought a vox v1 500GB external hard drive and when i plug it into my MacBook Pro it does not show up. Company gave me all these instructions for Windows but says it's compatible with Mac OS Aight, so I've got the Vox 500GB External Hard Drive, and it's worked fine...until just recently, when it won't respond to being plugged in. I am on a PC, and it acknowledges the device with a tone when plugged in, it just doesn't show up anywhere on my computer. Any help as to what I should do is much appreciated. Thanks

SOURCE: external hard drive won't work with Mac

It needs to be formatted for macs.
I had this problem and with mine as well. (VOX is a horrible company)

One of these two processes should work but I forgot which I did.

Go to spotlight and search for disk utility. If the drive shows up on the left you can click on it then. Click the erase tab. select mac formatting and then click erase.

If it does not show up when you do this you will need to do the same process on a PC.

A screeching noise is usually related to power issues with the drive. It could be very simple to recover the drive or cost anywhere between 500-2,700.

As far as end user things to try...there isn't much you can or SHOULD try.

The one thing that you should try is removing the drive from the enclosure and connect it to a computer or install the drive in another enclosure.

If you're not good with computers then I imagine just taking the drive over to a local computer repair shop would be the next easy thing to do. If I was a tech there I would just plug the drive in and see if the drive appears. Takes only 5 minutes so hopefully they won't charge you to check it.

Hope this info helps, if you have any more questions please ask. I specialize in Data Recovery.

that is because it is two different output channels. eventually you will blow the speaker or your amp. It wasn't designed to handle the impedance of an external speaker through the stereo
headphone jack. Are you sure that your speaker is hooked up or plugged in?

am not so sure if this is a similar issue with iomega2_bing.gif external drive in which the drive wont show up on My Computer but when the external drive was plugged into an ubuntu machine the drive was being detected and working just fine.

Please try to do the same. plug your external drive to an ubuntu machine and lets see if it can be detected. If it is then the hard disk has a similar issue with iomega drives. check this link for the solution.
