Question about Samsung Pleomax UHD-2G (SAUHD2G) 2 GB Hard Drive
I bought a Samsung Pleomax UHD-8G 8GB USB HDD 4 months back. When I connect this device, I usually see this as an "USB mass storage" in my system tray and also as a new drive in "My computer".
For the past couple of days, I do not see this as a drive in "My computer" but I see this getting detected as an "USB mass storage".
I am not sure whether some drivers are lost. Further I am not sure whether the data in the device can be recovered safely.
-thanks in advance
It took me a lot of digging to try and find a driver download. You can try the UHD25-80GB driver (this is for Windows 98, but you can try to see if it fixes the problem): http://www.samsungpleomax.com/sup_03_01.asp?page=2&fcate=Driver+download&scate=Storage+Media&tcate=HDD&scateg=Storage%20Media&tcateg=HDD.

Also, specs indicate that you need USB 2.0 or 1.1. I had problems connecting via a 4-port hub (that was supposed to support USB 2.0) so ended up connecting directly via my computer USB ("Enhanced" = 2.0) slot, which seemed to work fine.

click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you should see a yellow question mark?
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems for a computer and its parts also
scroll to disk drives if you can see your drive + to expand right click you should see options to update driver,disable,uninstall scan for hardware changes. or
select properties you should see options in the general tab to troubleshoot,policies,volumes,driver and details under the driver tab you will have the options to check the driver details,update driver,rollback driver or uninstall
hope this helps don

This could be an issue with assign the drive a letter:
1. Right Click on "My Computer" (might be called computer)
2. Left click on Manage
3. On the left click on "Disk Managment"
4. Check to see if the 12GB USB drive is showing up there if it is then right click on it and assign it a drive letter.
If the USB does not show up in "Drive Management" then try another USB port or another computer to test to see if the USB drive shows up.
Hope this helps
