    Thanks Zenodilodon,
    The external hard drive is 250GB so I suppose it's not a flash drive? When I open the drive, I can see the different folders but when I open the folders, there are no files in the folder. All the files are gone even if I wasn't working on them when the hard drive dropped on the floor. I tried to scan disk for error by following the Windows instructions but when I reach the part where I ticked each as well as together "select scan for & attempt recovery bad sector" and "automatically fix file system errors", it says "windows unable to complete disk check". any suggestions? please help. thx

What you have listed isn't a hard drive, It's a flash drive and it is practically indestructible by a common drop, If you can plug the drive in and access it then the drive is working correctly. If it does not say something like " Insert disk in drive E: " when you try and open it once again chances are the drive is working fine. The last time you connected it previously to dropping it you might of removed the drive before it was done. Some times Windows does not write the files right away if the computer is also busy, this can cause a delayed write failure to occur when you remove the disk before it has written the file down. If you plug it in and the computer does not see it or you get the stated message I wrote above then it's broken physically. If you can still write new files and read those then chances are you missed a write window.

If you did not receive a driver disk with your Smartdisks when you purchased them than you do not need to install any drivers. However, depending on which windows operating system you are using, your smartdisks may not be compatible. What you should do is go online to the Verbatim website and see if your model is compatible with the operating system you are using.

MY COMPUTER DIED. HOW DO I TRANSFER THE FILES FROM MY VERBATIM SMARTDISC FIRELITE 160 GB, USBFLB160' TO ANOTHER COMPUTER? THANKS...........................JOHN NICKERSON


It depends on how you copied your files to the SmartDisk.
If you used the "normal" method of copying files/folders in Windows, then just connect it to the new computer.
If you used some "backup" software from Verbatim to write "backup" files,
then you'll need to install that software on the new computer,
in order to retrieve from those "backup" images.

When i plug my verbatim hardrive in all i get is " please insert disk into drive f" and will not let me open the drive.


Windows is unable to read a valid "Table-Of-Contents" from the disk-drive. So, Windows is "guessing" that writing an "empty" Table-Of-Contents onto the disk-drive is the best action to take, but it's asking your permission, before proceeding. If you have existing files on the device, say 'no'. If you have NO files, or you are willing to "forfeit" ALL the files currently on the disk-drive, say 'yes'.

If you say 'yes', and Windows fails to write the new Table-Of-Contents, then there's something physically wrong with the disk-drive. Check the warranty-status of the device -- if the warranty sitll is valid, Verbatim will replace the device, at no cost to you.

I have a Verbatim 250USB drive and have never had a problem with it until I attempted to copy some HD movie files to it from my computer's hard drive. I am attempting to copy .mkv movie files to the...


firs:
try to format your hard drive, then try again.

if you still cannot do it, do a low level format, using this tool:
http://hddguru.com/software/2006.04.12-HDD-Low-Level-Format-Tool/

if you still cannotdo it, it may be a harware problem. try to copy a big .mkv file like that from another pc, to be sure it isn't your pc's fault, if you can do it, then it's your pc, if you still cannot it's the disk.

in the firs case the troublesooting is quite difficoult but if you post your system configuration i may help.

in the second case if allso a low level format fails, then i don' think we can do something for youo... you should get assistance from the manufacturer....
hope this help,
Paolo.
