Question about IOGear COMBO ION GHD135C160 160 GB Hard Drive
I am having a problem with my IOGear COMBO external hard drive... it is no longer being recognised by my computer. I have had it over two years and never had a problem until recently.
I have tried to connect using the firewire port as well as the USB port but it's still not recognised.
There is power to the device as I can see the blue light at the front. However it is now flashing intermitantly... one flash and then a pause followed by six continuous flashes and then a pause again before the sequence is repeated again.
Can anyone help and advise me what the flashing means and if there is anyway i can get my computer to recognise the IOGEAR devices again.
By the way i am running an XP machine and have the IOGEAR GHD135C160 model
Is your hard drive detected by the computer? Did you try changing the USB ports? You can check if the drive is detected by Right click on taskbar > properties > startmenu > customize > advanced > scroll down completely and select system administration tools "Display on the all programs menu" > ok. Click on start > all programs > administrative tools > computer management > double click on storage. click on disk management(local) here you should see your drive. If you dont then the drive is probably not detected. If you see, you can just re-format it from here and it will appear in your my computer.
