I've met space limit for my SimpleTech external drive even though my internal drive still has space and both are 250 GB. Are there SimpleTech programs taking up space and if so how much of that 250 GB...


Your internal drive is different than your external drive. If you put more files onto your SimpleTech drive, then that one is going to fill up faster. The best thing to do would be to go through your SimpleTech drive and delete anything that you don't need. I don't remember my SimpleTech drive coming with any software on the drive, but if it did, it didn't take up much space.

I need a manual for the black cherry portable high-speed UB 2.0 hard drive. The one I have is 160 GB. Thanks.


Here is the manual that covers all of the SimpleTech Signature Mini External USB 2.0 Hard Drives. This is a pdf document, so you may need to install Adobe Acrobat Reader if you don't already have it installed.

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.

My signature mini hd doesnt work........


With this situation, only a data recovery company can help you. I am afraid that there is some mechanical damage to either the case or the hard drive. If you can remove the case and test the drive, you may be half way there, but if drive is clicking, it is best you leave it to professional data recovery. That is what I do, but you don't have to send it to me. You can bring it to your local shop to see if they can help.

Computer doesn't recognize the external drive


I asume the connection is via an USB?
Try another usb-port and see if that helps, if not try to connect the disc on another PC (maybe a friends pc) and see is that pc recognize the disc.

Good luck!

Hubs don't work on LaCie minin 250 GB Hard Drive


there is not enough power coming through ports each device re-quires 1-5 volts to run and if your mac has not got enough power to boot all devices then sadly all things pluged into will not reconise and with mac the os is not properly designed for it now if you got yourself an external usb 2.0 hub powered then yes all devices will be seen in mac windows firewire is unsafe at moment for this to happen ask them what system they had had configuration on. hope this has helped
