    I seem to be having the same problem. I put the drive in and taskbar says it is recognized, but in My Computer it does not show up. Occasionally the drive seems to try to eject itself and it tells me that it cannot be ejected because it is in use. It does this on every desktop and laptop I have put it in.

Try clicking on the icon in the taskbar and if it's like SanDisk flash drives there is a program you need to install from the Pleomax itself, that enables it and several tools as well. When you see that window, there will more than likely be an eject button as well.

My Pleomax external hard drive stopped working on my MacBook (OS Maverick). It worked for one day and that was it. It flashes green and red when connected.


Probably not an issue with the MacBook but with the Pleomax drive. Be sure the drive is getting enough power to begin with. If it came with a 2 headed USB cable be sure to connect BOTH USB connectors to the Mac. You may also want to try the drive while your COMPUTER is plugged in and charging. Laptops and external drives don't always get along due to power differences and specifically laptops who do not want to waste their battery power on an external drive. If all else fails, try the drive on another computer just to make sure it is a drive problem and then contact the manufacturer for a repalcement drive.

This could be an issue with assign the drive a letter:

1. Right Click on "My Computer" (might be called computer)
2. Left click on Manage
3. On the left click on "Disk Managment"
4. Check to see if the 12GB USB drive is showing up there if it is then right click on it and assign it a drive letter.

If the USB does not show up in "Drive Management" then try another USB port or another computer to test to see if the USB drive shows up.

Hope this helps

Samsung Pleomax 12 GB hard drive, computer says "USB Device Not Recognized"


The external storage device has several major components:

* USB cable

* external power-supply

* disk-drive inside the enclosure

* USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

Try a different USB cable.
Try a different USB port on your computer.
Try a USB port on a different computer.

Take a multi-meter, and measure the output voltage/amperage of the power-supply,
and compare with the specifications on the label of the power-supply.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and attach it as a "slave" drive in a desktop computer, to see if bypassing the USB-to-disk-drive adapter bypasses the problem.

Look at the label on the disk-drive, for manufacturer, product-number, serial-number, and manufacture date. Access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status" to see if the warranty still is valid. If so, the drive can be replaced, at minimal cost to you.

Buy a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service". For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive, just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.

My external Samsung HM120JC 120 GB Hard Drive not responding


Not sure what could be the problem.
There are many issues here.

- Did this drive worked before?
- If it did, was this your boot drive?
- USB cable and connector problems
- How is this connected to the drive?
- Is it in a package that came with the drive complete, or you had to install it?

My two cents... Samsung and other Japanese drives are not that reliable and if it's new, return it and get a Seagate drive. They have five year warranty and much better drives.
