Question about Vantec 1 Bay NexStar 3 USB 2.0 External Drive Case
Brand new Vantec Nextar 3 enclosure with WD Green 1TB drive. The light on the enclosure blinks, but I can't feel the drive spin up. I have an older 200GB drive in an identical enclosure which works flawlessly. I haven't tested the drive internally yet, so it may be the drive or the new enclosure.
Actually, the light did stop blinking now after a few minutes. If the drive is on, I am unable to tell if it is spinning.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

if you can get another hard drive and place it in the enclosure plug usb cable in then turn on the enclosure and see if this works if doesnt place it on another unit or pc and see if it accepts if it does then the usb drivers need to be re-installed goto my computer device manager and find usb it looks like a trident hilight this and click uninstall from menu list in properties then on the top of manager there will be a computer with a spyglass click on this and windows will find new devices let it continue then reboot then re-try enclosure if all goes well it will come up found new device. retry other hdd you first placed in enclosure if it dosen't feel hdd is turning the platters then get rid of hdd. hope this goes well

Before you can use the drive you may need to format it. Under my computer right click the drive and select format. the select your preferred file system(it doesn't matter witch unless you plan on holding files larger than 4 gigabytes, in witch case select NSTF). I hope that solved your problem.
