Question about Trekstor Datastation maxi t.u SATA 500 GB SATA Hard Drive
I can use the compact flash card reader fine, but it gives me an error when I plug it in to utilize the hard drive. It says that the disk is "not readable"
I can't find a driver anywhere for it, no software with the product got it from J&R.
Hey guys. I have an answer on how to fix the Trekstor Datastation "Removable Disk" problem.
I also own a Trekstor Datastation 500GB and had the same problem even though it worked for several months then all of a sudden when I tried to hook it up to another computer, it stopped working. It would recognize the USB connection but you could not read the drive as it would say "Removable Disk".
In "Device Manager" it recognizes the drive as Sundata USB2SATA. But what it really should be is "WDC WD50 00AAVS-32ZTB0 USB Device" or something similar to that. For those that are wondering, yes, the hard drive is a Western Digital Hard Drive. Western Digital Caviar to be exact.
Solution: You need to open the cover to the hard drive and reconnect the hard drive to the connector on the board. It's that simple!
It is very loose and this model is not well designed so it can easily come off if you accidentally knock over your hard drive or move it to another location. The hard drive is held in place by screws on a holder where there is room for the screws to slide if the screws are not tight enough.
You'll need a T10 screwdriver bit to remove the cover and a Phillips screwdriver to adjust the hard drive.
NOTE: Doing this will probably voids your warranty but trust me, it works and it's really easy and quick to do. Took me 15 minutes.

Transcend produces different kinds of memory modules, including Random Access Memory, or RAM, chips for computer systems, USB flash drives and a variety of flash memory card formats, such as SD.
Transcend's flash memory devices are usually preformatted with either FAT32 or NTFS. Macintosh systems primarily use the HFS+ file system format.
You can format a Transcend flash memory card to the FAT format using the Disk Utility program on a Macintosh.
Insert the Transcend flash card into a card reader connected to the Mac.
Some Macintosh computers have SD card readers built in.
Open the Disk Utility program in the Utilities folder.
Click the flash card in the left column of the window.
Click the "Erase" tab.
Click "MS-DOS (FAT)" in the "Format" drop-down list.
Enter a name for the flash card in the "Name" box.
Click "Erase" to format the flash memory card to FAT.
Hope this helps
