Just want to check first, are you supplying enough power to it? They use a lot and sometimes require to be plugged into 2 USB ports, let me know

    Wow, I am actually unable to locate the part you need anywhere. It is likely that it failed due to excess heat though. There is a link below to support for simpletech, they may be able to help or the part might not be sold. You could always buy a new one and swap out the board to recover if need be.
    Good Luck

    wow, sorry man. If you were not using 2, this may have caused the failure, overheating due to low power. The only other thing I can give you is the website to contact support and see if they will give you one but I doubt it. Worth a shot though. Good luck

My computer does not recognise simpletech 250GB HDD drive when connected. The lights glow only. Earlier I had used this on my TV. Could it be that the system got corrupted


Buy an external USB hub that has an AC power adapter.
Your computer is not providing enough power to spin up the drive.
A self powered hub will provide the necessary power. 7 Port USB 2 0 HUB AC Adapter Monoprice com

PS3 hard drive transfer


seagate eSATA 250gb hard drive, the PS3 uses a laptop sata drive, how you get this to work?

You have basically have 2 options you could try:

Use Linux for retrieve the data of get the original mainboard back.

The PS3 + HDD bonds together, so if you were to save stuff eg, online purchases, you need to have the same account for max of 5 downloads to 5 differenct units, BUT you cannot just swap out the HDD and expect it to work. The PS3 has a feature to backup from internal directly to an external USB hard drive but online limited to data, most purchased movies and/or MP3 will not be transferred, it sucks.

You can have as much HDD you want but only YOU can use them , cannot be shared with another PS3. I hope that helps a bit

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 500 GB external hard drive - unresponsive


If you really can not get it to work anymore, you could try opening it up and connecting the hdd directly on a IDE/SATA port in your computer. This will only work if you have a desktop, for a laptop you would need all kinds of converters.

Simpletech 500 gb external hard drive


There is a power consumption work-around untill a Y usb wire can be purchased; the main power cable must still be used at all times but this workaround should only remain temporary!!!
Simpletech should have included this so laptop users could use the drive as their capacity is better than the packaged slimmer simpletech portable backup drives for laptops, which does include the Y cable....
1) unplug usb while powered and unknown hardware is present on laptop...
2) turn power switch off from the external HDD...
3) return power switch to on from the external HDD...
4) plug in usb connection to laptop...
Autoplay should read from external HDD!!!
**** Save some $$$ and buy a Y shaped cable to provide sufficient amount of power from laptop usb
ports, cause it's necessary to use 2 of your ports to provide power in addition to the main power from HDD to wall****

Simpletech 500 gig usb plug in hard drive


Is the drive running when connecto to power ans PC?
Try it on another PC.
Check the power supply if it is operated from an external power supply.
It it is self powered via the USB then this is a possible problem- the PC power supply cannot cope - Removing other USB devices may help here
