My buffalo router is able to recognize my buffalo external HDD but not able to mount the disk


heyahhhhhhhhhh...just kidding

so this router is connecting to computer no? sounds like maybe it's the wireless from router(or ethernet) that is causing the gap

if router sees the drive, and computer sees the router, i'm assuming if you connected drive to pc it would see it no?

sounds like there is some comm issues between router and pc here

Hey my Buffolo harddrive wont show my files, i can see that there are files, i have used 180 out of 200GB, but when i click on my harddrive icone on my computer it sayd folder is empty.. PLEASE HELP


There are generally 2 formats for Hard drives, the NTFS for windows and the FAT 32 for MAC. If you previously used windows then mac wont see it and vice versa. You can check this by right clicking and see the properties. If you want Mac to back up as well as using it on windows, you need to partition the Hard disk by going into the Mac Applications folder then select Utilities. If the Hard drive is connected you should see it and can select erase from the menu tab to format the disks according to your needs. This solved my problems and I hope this helps.

I'v just bought Buffalo's external hard drive about three months ago, the problem came out about two months ago when i tried to transfer some files, and the transfer rate suddenly decreasing significantly...


Is it "slow" only on your computer, or also on some other computer?

If it _consistently_ is slow, then it probably has at least a one-year warranty. So, return it to where you bought it, and get it repaired/replaced.

We understand that your problem is:
hello i was using my buffalo ministation 320 gb external hard drive about a week ago, it was working fine but I left it on my bed when I was done. About 2 days later I went to change my bed sheets and the external hard drive feel on the floor. Now when I connect it to my computer it makes a connected sound but it does not show up on my computer but it is recognized when I safely disconnect it from my computer. I tried it on my laptop, it installs but its the same, it is not detected under my computer so therefore I am not able to access my files. Please tell me what I can do to retrieve my data. Thank you.

Check the usb port function in the computer bios settings and be sure that it is set to yes. Connect properly your external drive. If it has two wire usb connections, use both to obtain the maximum power that will be need by your drive.

Hi i got a buffalo tb external hardrive and the pc wont recognise it now after i transfered alot of data when the pc froze and i had to turn pc off mid transfer . please can you help


It is probable that since the transfer did not complete, the data on the external drive will be corrupt.

Uninstall the external drive then reinstall and format the ext drive.

You should then be able to begin the data transfer process again.

It just sounds like bad luck that your pc froze mid transfer.
When you try again, do not use the pc for any other uses until the transfer has completed.

Regards and let me know if this works for you.
