Question about Fantom Drives Titanium II (TFD160U2) 160 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive

Open Question

Hello. I have a Fantom Drive - model # TfDF25072. I have some sensitive material on this drive so I wanted to password protect the drive. Unfortunately, I had put a password on this already a year or so ago. I couldn't figure out the password, so I received the message 'try again later'. But now, even if I restart my MAC, the drive's icon does not show up on my desktop. However, if I pull it's USB drive out of my MAC I receive the warning sign of removing the drive without properly ejecting it first, etc. How can I fix this situation?

SOURCE: how does a external USB SATA drive dock

The Solution: ... IT WORKS REALLY ...

Point 1: Remove power from the mains.

Item 2: The device from your PC, remove the USB plug.

Point 3: The USB Titanium External Hard Disc Enclosure Open, just the screws of the housing, with a special wrench to open.
The drive from the connector of the USB connector for one minute to remove, then the hard drive with the connector of the USB connection,
connect together.

Point 3: The hard disk into the housing insert all the screws screw.
PLEASE precisely again check that all connections are properly connected.

Power to the drive plug the USB connector from the HDD to the PC or notebook is already running and the hard drive, as before, during initial installation of the device.

So everything supper dooper easy ...

Try the basics first. Unplug and let sit for a while before rebooting the drive. Then if nothing, get a copy of Disk Warrior and you may be able to regain access to the drive in order to save your data.

SOURCE: fantom drive is not being detected. Shows a solid

Since you've already tried different cables and computers, that eliminates a lot of things. Are there any configuration switches?

Possibly a cable or connector has come loose within the unit, particularly the edge connector that connects to the drive itself. If the unit is under warranty, try that first, espcially if you don't have important files that could be lost on the drive if you had to send it in for repair or replacement.

If you open it up, re-seat the connectors --- push them firmly into the drive PC board. If possible, remove each and put it firmly back into place. If that doesn't fix it, something is probably burned out and it is probably not something one can handle without access to factory replacement parts.

How to remove the write protect on a fantom databank usb flash drive


Why would you try regedit on this? Depending on what files you are trying to delete you should be able to just right click on them and bring up the properties, once you do that you can change them or if you really want them gone just format the drive. Don't use safe mode for this just boot up the computer install the drive once the operating system sees it you should be able to change the properties using the above method.

You will want to encrypt the hard drive. One of the most popular programs is PGP, it is free and open source. Once this is done, you will will have to enter a password when ever you try to access that drive.

How to unlock a locked out flash drive


Hello.

Unfortunately, you cannot unlock a password-protected flash drive, unless you know the password.

If you just want to use the drive itself, format the flash drive. Of course, all the data will be wiped off,.

Hope this helps.

I want to "lock" the flash drive with a password.


    Encrypt Individual Files and Folders on a Flash Drive
  1. Step 1 Choose "Tools" from the menu bar at the top of the program, such as Microsoft Wordmag-glass_10x10.gif, and pick "Options."
  2. Step 2 Select "Security" from the many tabs displayed in the new popup window. Create a password in the "Password to Open" or "Password to Modify" section and click "OK" at the bottom of the box.
  3. Step 3 Confirm your password when prompted. Drag the password protected files to your flash drive. To open a protected file, enter password when prompted. Remember, passwords are case sensitive.
  4. Encrypt Entire Flash Drive
  5. Step 1 Download and install the freeware program "Cryptainer LE" onto your PC or laptop. Enter a meaningful password from 8 to 100 characters and define the file location and size, which you can change at a later time. Enter your password when prompted.
  6. Step 2 Install Cryptainer Mobile when the Cryptainer LE installation is complete. Select "Tools" on the menu bar at the top of your screen. Select "Install Cryptainer Mobile" and follow the prompts. The Mobile version comes with the LE download.
  7. Step 3 Close the LE version on your desktop. Select a location and meaningful password for the Mobile version. To protect important files and folders, drag and drop them into the vault, the location of the encrypted files.

How do i remove write-protection from a flash drive?


Usually there is a tiny hardware switch, hidden on a side. Most USB keys do not have it, and some that do have it internally, unaccessible, and of course set to READ ALLOWED. If a hit moves it to READ ONLY, you'd need to pry open the key casing to access it.
Also, some "advertising" USB keys, presented to customers as 'electronic brochures', are filled with advertising material and the switch flipped (or soldered, in some cases) before the key is sealed. You can make these read/write with a judicious use of a paring knife.
Finally there are some more advanced keys with internal control software, allowing for encrypted storage, password protection, boot-from-usb and read protection. You need the manufacturer's USB driver or utility to be able to access these functions, though. The DaneElec zMate has a password protection utility (you'll find it on their website), but I have been unable to find it for your model. You may want to check yourself.

Hello,
You can try a software recovery program such as this one:
http://www.download.com/VirtualLab-Data-Recovery/3000-2248_4-10610841.html?cdlPid=10801131
Of course there is no guarantee that you will retrieve your files. Also be prepare to retrieve files that are corrupted. I wish you the best of luck.

Dear Enryc2 I don't know if you have found a solution already but this is what I tried. If this is your bootup drive, disconnect all other drives, eg., CDRom/DvDRW, FDD, USB drives and try to bootup. You may also try to update your BIOS(only if you know how to).
