They are not meant to be taken off. You can very easily destroy the delicate chip inside.

If your computer or laptop has a problem detecting a USBhard drive or a USB device, and another computer can detect it, then theproblem could be a RF interference problem. Try using an USB cable that is a shielded USB cable (ie. AnUSB cable that has a clear plastic covering and you can see a metallic weavewhich covers the wires) OR a USB cable that has a Ferrite core attached to theUSB cable (the ferrite core is a cylindrical object approximately 30mm long X15mm diameter and it is attached to the USB cable near the connector).

Have a compaq nc6400 and conect a Hard Disk Western Digital by usb this not funtion correct

If you are just attaching a drive you had the answer is probably that your drive is set to be "Cable select" Most USB connections require that PATA drives be set to Master to function properly. If the drive is a SATA drive or purchased as a whole unit let me know and we can figure out other options.

I have a Toshiba USB flash dive with a plastic type of cover over the flash drive, how do I open it?

We just figured it out. Pull the end of the black plastic side and it slides out. It would be great if there were some instructions. Hope this helps!

Dish dvr does not recognize storage expander any more

I dont have a solution. Just to say that I have had the same problem, on about 3 occasions. (Out of the blue, it will suddenly workon a random day, when I unplug and replug the USB cable. But somee days I can unplug replug 20 times or more and the DVR will not recognize the Showcase). Talked to Dish network a few times. They seem to be aware of the problem, but they will only say that they are working on it. Two of their reps have told me that it is a problem with the DVR design, not the Seagate Hard Drive, and the "fix" is to just unplug / replug the USB cable until it works. Go figure.......

How to download songs on my mp3 player


First plug it into the USB port on your computer. Wait for the operating system to detect it and install the appropriate driver for it.
Then go to My Computer and it'll be there as a Removable Disk. However, the first thing you have to do with a new Removable Device such as this is, right-click on the drive and Format the drive.
This will let you operating system understand and allocate space on the drive for your songs.
Then you can copy and paste any mp3 onto it. Some mp4's are protected though so they won't play on it.
Hope this helps

Why wont it work?

doesn't seem that "Simple" if you ask me. I don't think PC hard disks are compatible with Mac's. you might have to get a Mac compatible External HD.
