Question about Samsung Pleomax Zirex UHD-8G USB Hard Drive

Not being recognized on any computer

I plug my Pleomax drive into the USB port and only get a solid orange light from the drive (no longer blue lights). The computers I use are no longer showing the thumb drive in my computer.

    Is there any way of salvaging the information on the now corrupted chipset?

    I bought the same mini hard drive at Costco a couple of weeks ago and never got it to work at all. It shows the two blue dots for a second or less and then it goes to orange. I get the audible "ding ding" when I insert it but no other recognition. I tried it on XP Pro, XP Home, Vista Home Premium, desktops, laptops and one tablet pc, all to no avail! I did go through the motions of emailing Samsung as well as becoming a member of their forum. I'll let you know what becomes of it.

The internal silicon chipset has been corrupted.
Did you try to use your folders within the the drive.If you did,this corrupts the deep set memory.

Dear, it is out of order thats why there is problem, don't attach it otherwise it will cause more problems, it gets hot due to the circuit shot. So, visit the repair shop for better solution.

PLEOMAX 5GB Thumbdrive


Do you see a message on your system tray when it is plugged in? If you don't see any message, it means that the drive is not being detected. You can't retrieve any data or files on the thumb drive if it is not detected. Things you can try to isolate the problem:

1. Try a different USB port on your computer. Check if your thumb drive will be detected.

2. Try a different USB device like mouse on your USB port. If it is detected, it means that the problem is the thumb drive. If not, it means that the USB port is not working or is disabled.

3. Try the thumb drive on a different computer.

Hope this helps. ;-)

Red Light/Blue Light I/O Error


My nx2 is working again after having the "red light/blue light/I/O Error" problem. I just:

1. turned off my computer
2.unplugged the HD,
3. took out the HD from the enclosure and plugged it back into the enclosure,
4.started up my computer without the HD being plugged in
5. after my computer had been on for a minute, I plugged the HD in and my computer recognized it and had the proper mixture of red and blue light coming from the HD, indicating it's working properly.

Good luck!

Pleomax 6gb USB Drive No Longer Recognized by My Computers


It's either the USB port, the drive electronics itself, or the USB cable.

First I'd try a different USB cable.
