FreshGear USB Portable Hard Disk Drive

Help! I bought the above at Changi Airport. Just got it out of the box but there are no instructions. I am pretty computer illiterate and can't figure out how to use it. There is the box, the wire connectors and a small CD. What do I do now??

Annmarie Brazier


Ah! i just followed the advice of putting the mini cd in my computer but I've got a MacBook and I think its just eaten the cd ( i don't think the slot was meant for mini cds!) How do I get my Hard Disk to copy all my files and how do I get this cd out of my computer!!

I am assuming that this is a laptop, getting the disk out, if you flip you laptop over on the back,under the dvd/cd drive you should see the screws, slow take them off and the drive pull out, dont pull it too far,just enough to take the disk out and re screw it back together,
i am not sure it this hard disk is for made for mac only or what, but try to go on line,search for the driver for this model,download, and it should work good luck

External drive not recognized


If the drive is new and you do not see it as a drive in my computer in may need to be initilized and/or partitioned.
Click Start, then Right click on My Computer and click Manage, then click Disk Management. See if your external drive shows up in the list. If it does, right click in the box on the left to see your options. if it needs to be initialized choose it in the list. Then right click on the larger box on the right and choose Partition as the option and follow the instructions given.

Maxtor Basics external portable hard drive not getting detected


Right Click on My Computer, click on Manage, go to Disk Managment, if the drive is available you will see it there. Check to see if it has a drive letter assigned to it, if not right click on it and choose Change Drive letters. Make sure you are on the external drive though, you don't want to change your C drive accidentally. It should pop up in My Computer.

Networking


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand to share an external USB hard drive and be accessible to the entire network, you can try:
  • permanently plugging the USB/portable hard drive into one of the networked computers and sharing it; or
  • replace your router with a model/version that can accommodate a USB specifically for that purpose such as a AirPort Extreme Base Station with Gigabit Ethernet; or
  • a device server that will allow you to plug in a USB device and attach over a Ethernet network.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

New verbatim 160gb usb external hard drive model # USB160 isnt recognized by my pc.


I had a simliar problem. This is how I fixed it in XP;

Remove any attached external devices except the one having the
problem.

Go to:
1. Control Panel
2. Administative Tools
3. Computer Management
4. Under Storage right click on "Disk Mangement"
5. The bad drive should show up as Disk 1 with a black bar across
the top.
6. Right click on the bar.
7.Select " change drive letter and paths " and follow the instructions.
8. If number 7 does not work, go back to the menu and select
"Format". During the FORMAT I believe you will be asked to assign
a drive letter.
9. GOOD LUCK

I acutally had this problem with two different drives. I fixed the first one using the instructions above. But the second drive didn't even show up in Disk Management. I had to return it for a new one.

Can you help me please


Thankyou for your reply SirDrag, I have tried the above, my daughter is helping me from her end, we are going to try disk director suite to see if it will pick it up, and units light comes on and I can feel it going, but it does not register on the PC, it says new found hardware on the laptop and nothing comes up. It does not show anywhere. We will try the disk director and see what happens, or I might just have to send it back, my daughter thinks that it might have to be formatted.
Let me know if you have any other ideas, again thanks

Put the Cd into your computer to install the software application onto your system and follow the basic instructions. You would probably then have to then connect the hrd disk drive.
