May seem like a silly question you are not booting up computer with ext drive still plugged in are you?
i am assuming your operating system is on the internal drive.
if so don't have the external plugged in when you start up.

Attach your external HD with some other computer, that will definitely appear normal, the problem is due to a virus in ur HD. Your computer's antivirus software stops it to appear. Back up your data on the other computer, format ur external HD, remove un-necessary files and run a virus scan to the files u copied from HD, Hope this will solve the problem, if not, let me know and tell me what would be the response on the other compuer

Mac OS X 10.4.11 SimpleDrive 1TB HD appears on Desktop only occasionally. Does not appear in Disk Utility. Have transferred files to it, light is on, plugged in, just takes several restarts to appear.


If you unplug the power and USB cables from the drive (but not the computer), plug in the power and then plug in the drive, the Mac will remount the drive on the desktop. I am having the same issue, only my old HDD used to be my TimeMachine drive and now I want my SimpleTech drive for that. The issue is that when the SimpleTech drive disappears, OS X automatically uses my old HDD for TimeMachine and all my disk space vanishes.

Very ARRGH!!!

I'm trying to find a better solution, because having to mess with the cables means it's no good for TimeMachine... and very frustrating on top of it.

Weird clicking sounds


Clicking sound on an external hard drive is an indication that it's quiting to work. You mentioned that it's just stopped working, you may need to check the Disk Management of your computer to see if you could still reformat it. To do this, please follow the steps below:

FOR WINDOWS XP AND VISTA:

1. Make sure that the HD is properly connected to the computer.
2. Right-click 'My Computer' or 'Computer' folder and then go to "Manage".
3. Locate and click Disk Management.
4. Then, take note of the drive letters that will appear on the screen.
5. While the Disk Management window is opened, unplug the HD and check which drive letter will disappear.
6. If a drive letter disappears, then that is your external 250GB HD. You may reformat it to make it work again.

NOTE: Reformatting the HD will erase all the files saved in it. You may want to bring your HD in any data recovery center to retrieve the important files. If the HD didn't show up under your Disk Management, then there's nothing that we could do but to bring your HD in to the Data Recovery to save the files.

FOR MACINTOSH OSX:

1. Connect your HD to the computer.
2. Click 'Go' (located near the Apple icon, Finder, File, Edit and View).
3. Select Utilities and then click the Disk Utility Icon.
4. Take note the drive letters and then unplug the HD.

If a drive letter disappears, that's your HD. If nothing disappears, then the computer no longer detecting the HD.

Good luck!

I would disconnect it and connect it again.You probably will be asked to assign it a drive name like G-Drive or E-Drive.

Need instructions for eGo portable hard drive. This shold ave come wit th purchase but did not.


there's no much need for instructions.
you just plug the hd into a USB port avaliable in your computer. the operating system should be able to recognize it a few seconds after you have plugged the hd into the usb port.

some hd may require for 2 usb to be connected to the computer for the computer to see it.. usually they come with a "y" usb cord. one goes to the hd and 2 usb type a cord go to 2 usb ports on the computer

to check to make sure the computer sees the hd. go into my computer and check if a removable storage device has appear.

also check your hd is on, some external hd may have switch to turn them on.
also check if your hd requires external power if it does it should come with a power connector that needs to be connected and plugged into the power outlet for it to work.

post your finding if you need more help.
