I have a Verbatim ac320gb USB Hard Drive. i try to format it in windows and had it say exceeded the hub power and how i have 0 bits on it. i try to reformat it and say 289 gb but windows can not format it....

Each USB port passes a limited amount of wattage.
The "formatting" is a "high-wattage" operation.
Try connecting to a different desktop computer, hopefully with more wattage per USB port.

Note that 289 * 1024 * 1024 * 1024 is equal to 320 * 1000 * 1000 * 1000

So, '289' (base-2) is equal to '320' (base-10).

If your usb hard drive is upto 500gb thenit don't require external power but if it is more than 500gb then it require external power.

How to use verbatim model # usb500

Plug it in one of the usb ports of your computer. Check if the external hard drive has a power button.
Normally, something will pop up on the screen asking you to install the software that came with it.

Follow the instructions and you may now use the external drive as your back up drive.

Internal 320 hard drive into external

If you got a USB casing for that, it would have come with a USB and power cable. Yes, power too!

Plug the power, and make sure you have a USB 2.0 hi-speed port. Also check "computer management" and check the hard disk works.

Hi Nicole.
If you can find someone with good soldering skills you may be able to get the socket replaced. but it's a bit of a gamble. Some sockets are extremely difficult to get at and some are easy - and you know which way luck goes!
The drive inside, is however most likely unaffected by all this. If you can get the enclosure open (you'll have to google for instructions for your particular model as not all WD externals are the same) you can remove the drive and fit it into an empty enclose that you can buy at most decent computer suppliers. Then just plug it in and use as before.

Having Problem with both LaCie hard drives being recognized on both macs

Try to connect to another computer, and see if it recognizes the drive. If Not, you can dismantle LaCie and take the disk out.

Connecto your disk to another external box (USB or Firewire) so you can have access to you data.
