Question about SimpleTech 250GB USB2.0 7200 RPM External 250 GB IDE Hard Drive
When I first purchased my 120GB Simpledrive around 4 or 5 months ago, it worked perfectly and I was able to store data to it with no problem. I keep it safe and secure on my desk. Last week though my computer stopped recognizing it. I tried it with 2 other computers and had the same problem. Windows makes the little "dinging" sound when it's plugged in and the drive turns on. I can hear it spinning and it sounds fine. A blue light comes on just like normal, but it doesn't appear under my computer. When I plug it in, sometimes windows freezes up until the second I unplug it. Sometimes i get a message saying something to the effect of "this device can preform faster on a usb 2.0 (which i have)" or "usb mass storage devide detected, (then) hardware not functioning" or something to that effect. Even when I get these messages it fails to be recognized by the computer.
Please repair the master boot record(mbr) might be damage cause of viruses. If the harddrive detected in the CMOS there is no possible that can able to format the harddrive using windows utility such as XP Bootable CD or 98SE.
Hope this will be helpful to you.
