Question about SimpleTech 250GB USB2.0 7200 RPM External 250 GB IDE Hard Drive
I have a Simpletech USB 2.0 250GB external hard drive. When I plug it in to my pc, it will not recognize it. I have high speed USB ports, but nothing works. I'm using a Dell Dimension 8400. Any idea what I'm doing wrong??
Simpletech USB 2.0 500GB (bought today) took several on/off then it puffed a small (smelly) smoke and fired up. I had rebooted the pc before this happened. I'm not sure if that was part of the problem or if the drive just needed the on/off action to wake it up.
Reading these posts however makes me wonder how long, and if this thing is going to work!
