The unit (more precisely the hard disk inside it) just died - nothing you can fix unfortunately.

How do i fix an I/O Device Error on External Hard Drive?? or is it need to be taken in?


You can disassemble the drive and connect it internally to a desktop computer. The hard drives inside of these external enclosures are identical to ones found in desktops or laptops. The drive should show up as another hard drive on your machine where you can get all of the data back.
The circuit board inside these drives that handles the data transfer through USB can get worn out and sometimes do go bad.
Disassembling the drive will destroy the enclosure usually.

Plug it in, It's just sitting there clicking, no action


Do you have the AC adapter plugged into power, and plugged into the Coolmax?
(Plus the USB cable plugged into the computer, and to the Coolmax?)

Is your Coolmax an XtremeFiles F1-B?
The link below is to a review of the F1-B, and also details out how to set it up, and install it. This should also work for your external backup harddrive, if it is not an F1-B.

try plugging your HD into another desktop/laptop to see if your HD is functioning well on a different computer. Could be the USB cable problem.

Hard Drive problem


Have a simpletech 96300-40001-001 external hard drive from couple years ago I bougt at Sam's. I have lost the installation software. It will now work on my laptop, the computer I bought it for because I installed it there when i bought it, but it will not work on the others (not recognized) and I cant seem to find a download of drivers that will make it work on this desktop and my other laptop. Do you know where I can get a copy of the original installation CD that came wih the hard drive. I am running XP Home on all three computers.

Are you using a USB hub? If so connect direct to the computer. Go to - start/control panel/admisitrative tools/computer managment/storage/disk management Look down to see if an new drive has shown up. Double click to activate the window right click and follow promts to create a new active partition. The disk fill format and when done you will be in business
