    I can tell you what I do not recommend... any Seagate external drives. They have an over heating issue.

Buy an external USB hub that has an AC power adapter.
Your computer is not providing enough power to spin up the drive.

I am trying to do a back-up from my computer but the external hard drive does not appear on "my computer". when the external drive is connected to the external usb drives it makes a noise.


The cable coming off the hard drive should have two usb plugs. Make sure both are plugged into the computer so that the drive is getting enough power. If it's a laptop you are plugged into the same thing applies but also make sure that the AC Adapter is plugged into the laptop when you plug the external drive into the USB ports. Sometimes it won't power the drive if it's running off battery power.

Of course it could be a problem with the Hard Drive within the enclosure if it is a constant clicking. But it sounds like it could just be the USB port not powering the drive up.

You could try on another pc as well.

Western Digital external USB 2.0 Problem


Buy an External USB 2.0 Hub with the 5.0V power supply. I have a TARGUS 4 Port Hub. MY WD2500XMSB works fine thru the HUB, but will not work using any cable (even the one that came with it) when directly connected to the USB port on my computer. The power consumption of passports sometimes exceeds the .5 milliwat rating for the ports and ccause the port power to interrupt (see USB 2.0 specifications). The external hubs with external power have a higher power output usually an can power the passport drives. CW Rumsey

Where can I find a Mac driver from a Simpletech 250gb Marshmallow It has been formatted on a PC. I now want to reformat it and use it on my Powerbook G4 OS 10.4.7


You shouldn't need a special driver, but you do need to plug in the usb y cable to 2 usb ports. Normally 1 usb port doesn't supply enough power to make external USB drives go. That is why I prefer firewire, it supplies much more power at higher sustained rates. Once the drive is going just open the Disk Utility and format for your needs. If you need to share files with a PC, partition as MS-DOS (FAT). If you are sharing with a mac or not using the drive on other computers, format as extended with journaling.

I require a driver for our Beyond micro external hard drive.


It looks as though there is no driver support for beyond micro although the specs state that the drive is plug and play. which means you just plug it in and windows sets it up. other than that there are no software or drivers for it.

best of luck.
hope this helped.
please remember to rate me.
