This is a portable hard drive?

If so, you can pull it apart, and use it as if it were a laptop hard drive, this should provide you with a few more options such as putting it in another external drive bay or something.

My computer wont recognize my external hard drve and the io magic light is blinking


Try connecting the external hard-drive to a different computer. If it still fails, and it is still under warranty, then exercise the warranty to get it replaced.

If the warranty has expired, open the case, and remove the disk-drive, disconnecting it from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter.

Connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in some desktop computer, to see if the disk is recognized.
If it is, then the USB-to-disk-drive adapter has failed, and you could go to any computer-store to buy a new external case and adapter, and mount your disk-drive inside the new case, and work with your files.

If the disk-drive is not recognized, check the warranty on the disk-drive itself.

Computer is not recognizing my external hard drive


If the light won't blink, there could be problem with the power source. Do scanning hardisk for errors manually ( take off the hardisk from the case, assemble it on other PC Desktop)

Longer Recognize on compuer?


The likelyhood here is that you have lost your USB ports. Plug another device into the same port. If it works ok, then suspect your connecting cable. If this is without success, try plugging the dive into another computer. If no good either, take your drive to a data recovery shop. They may be able to rescue your data using their special applications.

My computer will not read my io magic giga bank 6 gb


Was your computer ever able to recognize your GigaBank, or is it new?

The most common problem people have with a new drive not showing up in My Computer are:

1) The drive is not formatted

2) The drive letter is mapped incorrectly

You can check both of these things in Disk Management by right-clicking on My Computer and choosing Manage, then clicking on Disk Management on the left hand side.

If your drive doesn't show up in Disk Management, and you are also unable to see the drive on multiple computers, then you may be experiencing a hardware malfunction.

If you are still within your warranty period and you are experiencing a hardware malfunction, we will be happy to replace your unit for you. Specific warranty and replacement information is available at www.iomagic.com, by clicking on Support.

Have a nice day,

My Gigabank will not read on my computer anymore


We are seeing alot of posts reporting problems with these USB connected portable drives. Maybe this is one of those ideas that sounded good, but results in lots of headaches, lost data. First, try the drive on another machine- see if works there. In Control panel, select Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk Management... Does the drive appear there? It is possible the drive needs repartitioned/reformatted (not good for your data). You could take the USB drive case apart, check the interface cabling to the drive, and try it again. If it still doesn't work, try removing the drive and installing it in a desktop computer as a slave drive. I've only had one of these USB connected drive assemblies apart, but that one used a drive with a standard 40 position ribbon cable interface, the same as what is used on pre-SATA desktop systems. If you've gone this far, you could try removing the drive from the case, and installing it in a desktop machine as a slave drive, and seeing if you can get anything off it there. Diagnostic software from the manufacturer could also be run here too. None of this may get your project back however, unfortunately. For those highly important things, a backup is really suggested- and you know why- the hard way.

Not sure if this will help, but was having the same problem. I separated the power cord to the AC adapter brick and reconnected it. My computer immediately recognized it!
