Hello my  friend, regarding on your problem we have to consider first the different possibilities that cause this hard drives won't work. First try to double check the connector if it is properly connected or the power cable connector that causes no power that eventually give no power to the hard-drive. Another if you can notice the hard-drive, if the power of that device if present then eventually the problem is your hard-drive but if doesn't have a power then their are possibility that the power supply is  wrong. My recommendation, if you could fine a technician in your place then better you have to seek assistance in order to help you save your files from lossing it and to check if what are the main reason why this device won't work properly even you tried different computers. In that way, you can save files. Or if that device is under warranty then ship it back to the supplier to have a replacement but make sure that they have to make a back up from all of your data.
Hope this advice helps you from your problem. If you need more assistance just reply to this post. Thanks

Computer not reading hard drive


Usually a brand new HDD needs to be formatted.
Have you done that?
If not, then you should do as follows:
Right click on My Computer, click on manage.
A new window, called Computer Management. will appear.
Click the option Disk Management from the left pane.
On the right you will see ALL the drives connected to your computer.
Select the one you want top format, right click it and choose FORMAT.
When the process is completed, you'll be able to see and use your new HArd drive.
Hope this helps.

Which USB port on the computer do you plug in Simpletech? Or does it matter?


The current standard for USB 2.0 was released in 2000. All computers carry this standard so all USB ports will work...even the usb ports that also support E-Sata.

My computer wont read my Simpletech 500gb hardrive


SimpleTech has problems with their controller board. The HDD inside probably still works fine. You might want to get an external chassis and take the hard drive from the SimpleTech and put it into the external chassis. You will need a sata one.

SimpleTech 80 GB Portable HD Won't Read


It sounds like a problem with the board inside the case,- the actual hard drive is probably OK. Opening the case will void any warranty but there may not be much left anyway. There should be 4 screws in the bottom of the drive,- front 2 may be hidden under a sticker. Try installing the drive in your new case or an empty drive bay inside your computer. I have had external hard drive cases fail before and the actual hard drive was ok.
