Driver does not install atomatically


With the computer off, plug the unit in to the computer and turn it on.

Now start the computer, there is no driver to install manually, windows
uses generic drivers to detect plug n play devise's.

Out of hundreds of computers, the only time I have not seen a hard
drive detected was because the hard drive was bad, and the others
where hacked versions of windows, called lite xp, or the chipset drivers
where not loaded because someone just installed windows but nothing else.

You can look through your bios for plug n play, but its probably set to auto.

Most external HD's take a while to be detected from 10 seconds up to a few minutes.

If the driver does not install automatically, what driver are you installing
that you get it to work ??????????????????????????

Same problem


Check with your computer manufacturers website for any driver updates for the motherboard and also be sure to check with microsoft's optional driver and software update section which may hold a driver update for your computer.

SimpleTech hard drive not found by my computer


This may or may not help, but it worked for me! After about 4 hours of trying everything (Device Manager/Uninstall, Disk Management, etc..) nothing at all would work. The USB external hard drive would power up but when you plug it in, the New Found Hardware will pop up and search unsuccessfully for drivers for a PLUG AND PLAY external drive!?!?!

In any event, I simply plugged another USB drive into my laptop (and desktop) and viola! The new hard drive was recognized and installed immediately as 'plug and play' should do. I then unplugged the new drive and tried plugging in the one that was recognized and all of the sudden....IT WORKS AGAIN!!!!

This fix might not help anyone who doesn't have a second USB external drive, but you could try plugging another USB device in and get it to load and then unplug it and try your drive. It worked for me on my laptop and then I did the same thing to my desktop (which also wouldn't recognize it) and it worked on the desktop too! Problem solved for me, thank GOD!

Hopefully, this bypass can save you a few hours of google time and unwanted anguish. Like I said, you may not have another USB drive but try plugging in any other USB device until it loads and then unplug it and then plug in your USB drive that wasn't working. It worked perfectly for me.

Hope it helps!!!!

Describe your SimpleTech 500GB is not a 250GB


You should not have to install and extra drivers for this device as Windows XP should find this device when you plug it in to the USB port. Try plugging it in to another USB port on your computer. Plug another device in to the USB and see if it works.
When you say the plug and play feature does not work, do you mean that Wndows does not see the device or the backup program is not working?

Drivers


Hi,

Vista has been known to have multiple USB issues. You can try:
1. remove/uninstall USB instances/drivers in your Device Manager and reinstall but use the USB drivers at the Compaq website for your PC;
2. Update/Patch your Vista US

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Installation cd


Hello, technically you should not need the install CD for this as any modern computer you plug it into should be able to recognize it and use it. However if you feel you need any downloads go to the manufacturers website which is HERE. Good Luck! Dr. Know
