You mean copy a drive from your usb flash card to your hard drive?

If so, go to start, control panel, and find out which drive your usb is on.

Then run the program that wants the driver, and when it asks you where to find it, tell it which drive and directory it's in.

Hi, I have just rebooted my PC, and find myself missing the driver to my Verbatim Hardrive 320 GB. Is it possible to download a new driver, so I again can watch all my pictures I have saved? Hope you can...


No driver is needed, it's just a basic USB external memory. If you get a message about a driver then the pc no longer recognizes it correctly, which means that it has failed.
Your only hope of maybe recovering some data out of it is to dismantle the unit, extract the actual hard disk from within and connect it directly in a desktop - access it from My Computer.

When hooked up, blue light flashs, never goes solid, anf device cannot be found on my computer.


Hi there.

Try the following:

1. Restart your computer. Check again if the HD is missing.

IF it is still missing, THEN try

2. Unplug the USB drive and plug into another USB slot on your computer. Look for the drive again. If it doesn't show up then do Step 1 again.

A couple of other things to check :

Did the USB drive come with software or drivers that required being installed?

Does the USB drive connect to the computer (type, MAC / PC) that you are using?

For example, sometimes drives are made to work with a particular system, i.e., MAC or PC. AND then there are other USB drives that interface with both systems.

If you have the manual for your drive you can check the Troubleshooting section of the manual. If you don't then you can go to the Verbatim website and download a manual.

I hope this is helpful. Regards,

Hi,

Try doing flea power & the power cycle.

1. Disconnect all the peripherals like keyboard,mouse,printer, scanner & monitor and power supply from the CPU.

And press & hold the power button for 2 min, it will release the flea power from the mother board.

Restart the system & check.

2. Disconnect everything.wait for 5-10 minutes and then connect every thing.

Restart the system.

If it does not resolve the issue then you can try this : 

Check this before you try to edit the registry values. 

http://developer.apple.com/documentation/Darwin/Reference/ManPages/man1/profiles.1.html

Just remove the registry key it happen when this key is corrupted.

HLKM\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USBSTOR

And delete all references to the external hard drive. 

And also HLKM\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB 

and found the keys associated with the USB to IDE value.

After restarting the system, the drive should be detected & configured automatically by the computer.

Disclaimer : I will not be held responsible for anything that happens to your computer as a result of following my guide. Use this guide at your own discretion and risk.

Also if you still need driver: 

This is the best way to download the drivers of all your devices which are connected to the system for free.

You can download the Driver Magician from this link :

http://www.toggle.com/lv/group/view/kl34858/Driver_Magician.htm

Download the reg key from this link :

http://public.box.net/paul123

then doule click & select ok.

Run the program and select update drivers, it will list the list of pdated drivers.

Select the drivers and select download drivers.

If it does not download just select the driver you need and at the bottom you would see a link,

Just copy that link and download from your browser or download manager, I use orbit downloader.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
