Maybe some bad sector in there. You should do a disk scan to check that.

You may find the info you need here. Hard drives come with the barest of information

It does not appear they offer the manual on the site.

Six month old Simpletech 500 GB ext. drive not recognized


I had the exact same problem. Solved by removing Simpletech drive from the 'flashy-box'. Unplugged drive from internals and threw the 'Pinnaferrina' case away and installed it on my motherboards extra sata plugin site (if it has one). If you open your computer case it should be labled on the Motherboeard as such. Mine has four. On the first attempt when I started the computer i Had no OS system showing on first boot-up. Shut off computer and power and shifted SATA (RED Cable) to another Sata plug on Motherboard and it booted right up and I had the drive back. You will need a longer Sata cable than the attached to the Simpletech drive and a power cable that matches the one on the Simletech . Forget looking for the drivers on the net and the Simpletech web site was no use.

My SimpleDrive 500GB external hard drive is now only recognized as "USB Mass Storage Device" that I cannot access. I have uninstalled the driver and scanned for the hardware and it reinstalls it as USB...


You can try:
  1. another USB cable
  2. try it on another computer
That will rule out the USB and any software/driver issues on your computer. If it doesnt work after that, there could be a problem with the drive itself

Simpletech 500GB hard drive service center in hyderabad


someone mention to me that its just a laptop drive inside the housing. You can go to fry's and ask. But they will sell you a kit for 20 bucks.The kit contains external power and usb strap cable and bought a seperate housing too. I accessed the ext drive, dragged and dropped all files. But i would check your warranty first, call tech support and double check. IF not what the hey go for it or spends lot of money to retrieve files. Try yahoo.com and under answers and type in simpletech. I dropped mine and recovered all.
