Question about G Tech nology GDM4 250 X 250GB G-DRIVE mini Triple Interface

1 Answer

My PC does not recognize the G-Drive Mini that I have hooked up to it. How do I get it to recognize it?

I purchased the unit as a refurbished unit on ebay. It came with the cables to be able to connect to a PC. I had the power plug. I plugged in the power, it lit up, then I plugged in the USB to the computer. But it does not recognize the unit. What do I do?

This drive usually comes preformatted (HFS+ journalling) for use on a Mac OS system. If you wish to use it on a Windows PC as well ... you'll want to format the disk with the FAT32 or NTFS file system (format).

ou have a usb controller board that is malfunctioning and it or the case for the usb hard drive needs to be replaced.
the power regulator that is built into the usb controller is not working therefore the usb logic circuit cannot transmit the signal to the PC viia the USB port and will not recognize the device. You can order or purchase a new case that will accommodate the hard drive from your local computer store.

Light turns on but My Computer does not recognize the drive


Sounds like you lost the drivers for your external. W/ out an online PC you cannot download them either. Do you have a friend that could do this on their PC? That is the only way.

Since Philips has sold their name and US product lines to the junk dealer Funai, it might be available under their name now.
You could also purchase an external drive to expand your possibilities; they are on eBay for ~ $50 US.
