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!

you can try buying another case and transfering the hard drive to it the case is around $20.00
