I have a Memorex Ultra Drive connected via USB to a Windows XP machine. It shows up in My Computer as a folder but then disappears again. It does this repeatedly. The drive is formated as a FAT32. How...


As you have described that your Memorex Ultra Traveldrive re-appears repeatedly, indicates that the communication between your computer and your external hard drive is intermittent. The FAT32 format does not produce these types of issues. What we can do first is identify what causes the problem.

Assuming that the hard drive in your Memorex Ultra Traveldrive is in good shape:

Troubleshooting Method #1. Try connecting your Memorex Ultra Traveldrive into another USB port. If the problem persists, use another USB cable for your external hard drive. If the problem still persists, you will have to replace the external casing of your external hard drive. If your external hard drive works with the other USB port perfectly, most likely, the USB port where you originally plug into of your Windows XP machine needs to be checked. That USB port might need some repairing.

Troubleshooting Method #2. Try connecting the external hard drive into another computer and perform the same troubleshooting as Method #1. If your external hard drive works with other computers perfectly, most likely, the USB port where you originally plug into of your Windows XP machine needs to be checked. The USB port might need some repairing.

If the problem only occurs with your Windows XP machine, assuming all USB ports are in good shape, your Windows XP needs to be checked for some software issues.

I hope this works for you. Kindly reply/comment for further assistance. Good Luck!

Thanks for using Fixya!

Need software for 512mb traveldrive using Windows 7

The TravelDrive is a "plug-and-play" device, and Windows 7 supports Plug-and-Play.
So, any device-drivers are included, and will automatically be used when you connect the TravelDrive.

What problems are you having? Symptoms? Error-messages? Does the TravelDrive work in some other computer? Does any other USB device work in the USB port that you are using for the TravelDrive?

You have Vista, don't you.. That´s the problem. Microsoft neglected Sony making Vista. It doesn't support practically no Sony stuff.
