I would plug it into a windows 7 or Vista and the computer's USB. The computer should recognize it. Click start then computer and find the icon for your drive and right click your Icon. In the drop-down window look for 'format' and that should help you format your drive. is a feature-rich suite of optional software included on many Buffalo Drive-Station and Mini Station storage products.

My external buffalo hard drive is recognised in device manager, but can't access through explorer... any ideas please? I am running Vista and the last time I accessed the hard drive was doing a backup...


Your drive could have errors due to the aborted task. You need to format your drive. Go to Computer Management, if your drive is recognized in device manager t will show up in the Computer Management, there you can format it. Good luck.

Buffalo HD-HC160U2 stops open Computer is start menu


Hi,

The orange light indicates the drive is getting power. So, that leaves a faulty circuit in the chassis of the drive enclosure or a failed circuit in the drive itself.

Take your drive to your local PC shop and have the technicians test it in a new enclosure. If it works buy the new enclosure and be on your way.

If not, get back to me with your location(Country, State and City), I will be happy to refer you to a professional near you with the right equipment to help you recover your files.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris
