    I have the same problem, and I know it's the hard drive (Acomdata 250GB), because I also have the Maxtor 500GB model 3200, and both computer recognized the Maxtor HD, the one at home and the one at work, but it won't reconigzed the usb 2.0 connection on the Acomdata HD...
    It's not the cable because I switch the cable too.
    Please help me, because I need it for my backup music HD.
    What it could be?

    Thanks in advance for your help...

I have a seagate external drive of a capacity of 250GB. the free space available is 177 GB. the hard disk is very slow? please help?

Are you connecting this high-speed ("USB 2.0") device to a low-speed ("USB 1.1") USB-port on your computer? If so, and your computer has a "USB 2.0" port, connect your device to that port.
If not, then purchase an add-in PCI card for your computer, to add "USB 2.0" port(s).

USB's slow and external drive

For the USB ports, you may want to verify that the drivers for the "enhanced USB" are up to date and for USB 2.0 or 1.1. USB 2.0 ports are generally backwards compatible for 1.1 devices. The "enhanced" does indicate USB 2.0 controller. 30mins to backup 3GB to your external drive is a VERY long time. USB 2.0 transfers data up to 480mbps, but if you get an error message indicating that the device can perform faster on a 2.0 port, you maybe transferring data at 12mbps which is USB 1.1 speed

To speed up the transferring of data, identify which USB contoller in Device Manager is the USB port you're having a problem with, and delete it from Device Manager. Then, plug in your external drive into a USB port its never used before.

As for the naming of hard drives, Hitachi partners with several drive manufacturers including Dell and IBM.

I have a toshiba external drive 250GB. model HDDR250E03X. I believe the socket for the usb cable is loose...sometimes its working, most of the times now--its not! I already bought a new usb cable but still...

I have experience this error recently.
Normally these drive with high capacity like yours need to be installed with usb 2.0 cable and connected to a usb port that support usb2.0
Check if your motherboard support this.
Also if you are using an extension cable or a usb port hub try to bypass this and connect directly to the mainboard at the back
One thing more
At times new Hard disk need to be formatted, so go throught disk managemnent and locate your disk to create partition and format the Hard disk.
If you need more help
please revert back
I will be glad to help you for further problem.
One thing you can do is to check your Usb port with another device eg: a usb pen or usb printer.

External HD not recognizing USB ports as being Hi-speed ports

I have the same issue. I have 4 Simpletech Signature 250GB drives. They all worked fine at first. After about six months two of them started connecting at USB 1 speeds. It occurs on 4 different computers!!! The post about it being the computer assumes is wrong. How can it work fine for six months and then suddenly change. Also it occurs on different computers. I have submitted a tech support request with simpletech and will post the results.

Usb 2.0

If you connect a device like this that is running in USB 2.0 to a computer or device that only supportrs USB 1.0 the speeds there will be just the USB 1.0 , because it will depend to the USB port that its connected to.. that's why its advisable that if you have a device that runs in USB 2.0 better connect it to a device also that supports 2.0 so you can get the 2.0 speed..

Hope that helps.......

Usb 2.0

this is a common error with operating systems and devices.
If you go into my Computer/system/device manager. And remove the installed USB devices. shutdown the computer, and reboot it. then try putting your USB device in.
What general happens, is that if you have had an older device in the USB port at any time, the port configures itself to this setting. options are to try another port on the computer ( some older ports only support usb1.1 )
ensure you have up to date drivers on the connecting device and on the connecting computer.
Hope this helps Mike @ Compurepair.

USB2 high speed not recognize

Try opening up the device manager and unistall everything in the Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Then reboot and let windows reinstall the USB controllers. Windows should now be able to recognize properly USB2 devices.

Zippy USB external hard disk case (2.5

I know this is an old thread, however if it helps any one try this:
Zippys power supply failed for me also. The problem here is your case support USB 2.0 ("A high speed USB device") and your port is only USB 1.1 ("plugged into a non-HI-SPEED usb hub"). This will not give adequate power to the drive. So use a y-cable ( and connect one end to your casing and the two pins at the other end should be connected to two USB ports. (get it at
Another costlier way is to upgrade to USB 2.0 by a card like this
or even better a USB 3.0 card :
