Well if you have a good soldering iron and some skill you can get this done, otherwise your going to need to extract the drive out of the casing and ether put it into the computer or purchase a new case. Anything other then those 2 possiable solutions I would not think of anything other to tell you.

Hey there not sure if both usbs on this dual cable are to be plugged into my PC. The drive keeps flashing a blue light but my computer is not recognising it.


Hi,

In most case's only one USB needs to be connected, but you need to load the driver for it from the disks which you would have received for it.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

I hve a Verbatim USB Portable Hard Drive with 160gb/go. Suddenly I notice the blue light on the unit is blinking, and my K drive (Verbatim) is no longer showing on my computer. What does this mean?...


usualy it means that it has an error,try checking that the cables to the drive are connected properly if there all fine try shutting the usb drive off and turing it back on after 3 min.
you should turn your PC off also and restart it.
if that does not work you need to post more information about your PC and periferal devices.

Need drivers


Below is the link for the FireLite 160GB portable HD. Drivers are only needed for win98. 2000/xp/vista are plug and play. The manuals are included at this link.

http://www.verbatim.com/support/support.cfm?part_number=firelite+160gb+usb&x=56&y=11

Additionally, there could be a problem with power supply. A switch is on the back...USB or EXT. EXT is for an external supply. (http://www.verbatim.com/products/detail.cfm?product_id=38819801-1143-3415-5FE3682C49A8E37F&cat_id=3883B708-1143-3415-5FB9F3C74069A098) USB is naturally for a USB cable. Clicking might indicate low power when using USB. Switch to the external adapter or get a USB cable with two connectors for the computer (the extral cable draws more power),

good luck.
