Question about SimpleTech Signature Mini 250GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive - White Marshmallow

When plugged into the USB, SimpleTech Mini 250 will not come on

I am wondering if the USB cord that plugs into the external hard-drive is faulty. I cannot get the green light to come on no matter what USB I plug it into

Did the light ever come on, or is this a new drive?
How old is the system? (It appears to require a power cord for USB 1.1, but not 2.0.)
If it worked in the past, as long as you have the same type of connectors (A, B, mini) on the cord ends, any USB cord should work. Just swap it out.

Lost instruction booklet fo simpletech 250 ex hd


The drive is USB. To access the drive, plug it into a USB port of the computer.
The drive should be recognized by the computer.
I am not sure about Simpletech, however, most drives do not have an "instruction book".
What are you looking for in this documentation?

My SimpleTech 250 gb external hard drive has changed from being


Hello,

The reason for drive letters changing is often as simple as having two plugged in at the same time. Changing them again is simple but should be done while all drives are plugged in simultaniously.

So, plug in both usb drives, then right-click on My Computer and select Manage, when the management console opens select disk management. Strating with the other USB drive, select it on the right hand side and then right-click it and select "Change drive letters and paths". Select change from the next window and select a high letter X/Y/Z from the drop down box. Then click ok.

Repeat the last few steps with the external harddrive and select E, when you're done you should have to restart to allow the changes to take place but then it will be set in. You will have to repeat this process if you change which USB port you use for the hub or if you add other additional external drives.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

Computer doesn't recognize the external drive


I asume the connection is via an USB?
Try another usb-port and see if that helps, if not try to connect the disc on another PC (maybe a friends pc) and see is that pc recognize the disc.

Good luck!
