Computer is not recognizing my external hard drive


If the light won't blink, there could be problem with the power source. Do scanning hardisk for errors manually ( take off the hardisk from the case, assemble it on other PC Desktop)

How can I get this device to read on an xbox 360?


Step 1: Connect your hard drive to your PC.
Step 2: Create a FAT32 partition on your hard drive. If you’re using less than 32 GB, you can use Windows via “Control panel > Administrative tools > Computer Management”. If you’re using more than 32 GB, you’ll have to use an external program, e.g. Partition Magic.
Step 3: Load all the content you want from your PC onto the external drive. This should consist of files that can be read on the Xbox hard drive.
Step 4: Remove the external hard drive from your PC. Plug it into your Xbox 360 console through the USB port.
Step 5: Go to the Media menu on your Xbox screen. Select "Portable Device" from the menu. All the readable files saved on the external drive should be available to read on your Xbox 360.
N.B. Xbox's connection with an external drive is read-only. You can only read files that are already on the drive after connecting. You can't save game files or anything else on the Xbox main drive onto the external hard drive. Also, USB storage devices cannot be used for Xbox live marketplace content.

IO Magic Drive power replacement


All you need to do is ask at a computer parts store for an external hard drive enclosure.Take the hard drive with you and they will be able to give you the correct size, there are 3 sizes available, 1.8" (has a drive the same as an ipod in it), 2.5"(has a laptop /notebook hard drive in it), and a 3.5"(has a full size desktop hard drive in it).

The other option is you could just completely remove the drive from the io magic case and install it into your computer as an extra drive.

I/O Magic external drive not showing up in computer


Extreme temperatures, either very hot or very cold, can certainly cause damage to your External Hard Drive.  Based upon your description, it sounds like the hard drive enclosure has been damaged.  This would explain why device manager can not recognize it.  Your hard drive is plug-and-play with Windows XP, so no drivers are necessary.  Have you tried plugging it into another computer?
If your hard drive casing has malfunctioned, then retrieving your data is as simple as putting the hard drive inside another hard drive enclosure.  Hard drive enclosures are available at any local computer store, and also available on the I/O Magic website.  Make sure to get the right size enclosure.  Your hard drive has a 3.5" hard drive inside it, which is a standard desktop hard drive.

If you put your hard drive in another enclosure and it still isn't recognized by multiple computers, then the hard drive inside the casing has probably been damaged, and I would recommend contacting a data recovery specialist.

Have a nice day,
