Question about SimpleTech SimpleDrive Pininfarina 320GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive - Blue
Hello Please help me. i just borrow an external hd to my friend and works for a two day period but when i bought it back its now looking for a driver and we cannot i access the files anymore. It will promp you to search some drivers but it cannot find the specific one. We tried it also to other pc's and laptops but still the same. Please i need some help. The files are very important for a business, im in big trouble.pls help. I have the same problem and lost all of my contacts and calander information and Simpletech will not warranty it because of purchasing it at BJ's Wholesale Club.....beware!
This type of problem is fairly common.
There are two common reasons why this happens:
1. The drive may not have been properly ejected causing corruption of the files. This can be fixed by running the command prompt and typing in CHKDSK ?: /F where ?=damaged drives letter.
2. Hardware failure, either the circuit board on the drive or the one in the simpletech case may be damaged. Generally with a driver issue it is the latter and can be solved easily by stopping in at your local computer store and having them transfer the actual drive into a new drive enclosure.
If neither of these solutions work, then you will most likely need the help of a data recovery pro in your region. If you are in North America I suggest Armor-IT Data Recovery, India www.diskdoctorsindia.com or if you are elsewhere comment back with your region and I will make another recommendation.
Hope this helps FixYa,
