How to solve simple tech 160GB EXTERNAL USB HARD DRIVE


I was having a problem on Windows 7 with the SimpleTech 160GB drive not being recognized, went to the SimpleTech site and could not find any drivers - Went to MajorGeeks and found a driver update program - watch when you install it, do custom install so as not to get new homepage or toolbar. But it scanned and found where my drivers were deficient. Updated driver and drive is now recognized

I was given a 160 GB simple tech external hard drive and pluged


You don't really need a manual, it's simply a normal USB HDD you just plug it into a USB port. If OK, you will hear a "Bong Bong" and the OS will detect and install drivers, then the device will show up in My Computer, as a simple HDD, just use it as a normal drive.

I need driver software for my external hard drive. I have the 320GB Simple tech.


drivers should be on the drive! on desktop- click on my computer, click on drive letter (right click)- click on properties- or click on 'open' - if it shows driver files, double click and install drivers, or you may need to format it!
good luck!

Simple Tech SP U25/60 external hard drive


Almost nothing is supported on Win 2000 because it had shuch a short life span. most new tech made in the last 2-3 years only runs onXP or Vista. Every once in a while some will work back to 98.

p.s. did it say it was compatable with 2000? look on the box

Does simple tech 250 drive need an external power source?


Yes, you need a power supply. I have several USB peripherals that, in a similar way, APPEAR to be on when you plug them into USB. But that interface cannot supply enough power to actually run the machine. The maximum is 0.5 A * 5 V = 2.5 W. The wee portable drives can run on that power, but a normal desktop drive, such as is inside a full-size desktop external enclosure, use ~ 8 W.

So you need a DC power supply! I bet SimpleTech can tell you what the correct current, voltage, and polarity is. Good luck.
