You can get the driver on Teac's site. The 98se driver you download depends on your serial number, so have that handy.

Good luck...

My pc can not recognise the TEAC HD 35 PUK

to start is this the same computer from when the device worked ? , if so there should be two cables one is for power the other is for data , also if there is any clicking noise the HD could be damaged and not spinning up to usable RPM , after plugging in the power and data cable
the HD should automatically show up in in the cache
( bottom right side next to clock ) if not there look in
my computer you should see it next to the C drive
still if no luck check with a new data cable and to make sure the unit is powering up , still if nothing try
another USB , sometimes USBs just stop working with no explanation , still if nothing happens after
checking everything try on another known working computer , if you still have a problem write me back

Itunes messed up my external hardrive

I doubt that iTunes really moved/reorganized files on your computer.

iTunest may have created its own "Table Of Contents", presenting a "view" of all your files.

Open "My Computer" and open your external hard-drive.
The files should be in "your" order.

Open "My Documents". Open "My Music".
The files should be in "your" order.

If iTunes really did "reorganize" your files, there's no way to "go back", because "Windows System Restore" does not automatically created time-stamped backups of your 'My Documents' folder (nor of any external disk-drive -- where would it put that much data???).

Trying to read external HD, unknown partition

I see that you have a loss partition of your External HD. It is totally damage partition.
Here's what you do Replug your External HD to another PC if it is OK. Maybe its not the same will appear on your PC too.
Unknown Partition are likely big trouble to us if we have needed files inside.
Partition on every HD, External or USB are very needed, if you lose it. Then again reformat that to use again.
Hope its not gone. Good luck!

Using the 160GB passportHard drive

are there any errors that popped up while copying the music files? if not, then it probably works fine. the files are now stored on the harddrive.
if you want to safely unplug and carry the HD over to another computer, you can., the files should be accessible... that's all a harddive does.

Hopefully you can just go to the main computer, use your Windows Explorer to see all the files on the external. Then just use the files as they are or copy them onto the main computer.

I certainly did and everything is as expected.

My pc dose not come up my maxtor basics external desktop hard drive

What OS are you using? Windows 98SE does not always recognize exterrnal hard drives. Try the external HD on a computer running Windows XP and see if that works. If it works on WinXP and not Win98SE or possibly WinME the External HD is good.

Win98se i did it ... HERE'S HOW

OK, I bought this Western Digital MyBook 500 GB Essential Edition too, and could not get it to work with Windows 98 SE.

I followed the above instructions, but my version of windows was missing even the drivers suggested above! UGH!

HOWEVER, I found ANOTHER SOLUTION. I installed USB 2.0 drivers for mass storage and the the MY BOOK icon popped up on my Windows 98 SE machine. Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Here are the drivers from this british webpage:

Good luck to all you frustrated folks scooping your info off Windows 98 machines!

Computer does not know external hd is there

How is this drive powered? If it is through the USB, then disconnect all other devices so connected[except for mouse keyboard] You may be make to much demand of the PSU. If it is separately powered then do this Start/Control panel/Ad min Tools/computer management/Storage/disk management to see if the system recognises it. Device manager to checkout the status of the USB. Check also the Bios to ensure the USB devices are on.[only if no other USB devices are running
