My buffalo ministation 3.0 external hard drive wont be recognised by my comuter. to be honest i dropped it, but when i plug it into computer green light starts flashing, after a while fashing stops green...


My ministation was doing the same, beeping and flashing green light after a light drop on the floor. Soo... I took my ministation usb drive out of the plastic enclosure and smacked it on the table a few times. Plugged it in and it spun back up!! Now my computer recognizes it and everythings working smooth! I assume something with the drive became jammed and the couple smacks loosened the drive head.. Anyway, if all else fails... beat it!

The Hardrive is now beeping and the blue light only flashes once. And my laptop isn't recognising it. Everything I have is stored on it?


click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or


if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver


sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable


just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems

if this fails to fix the problem
type in run "regedit" then press ok then you can see registry editor then locate below key. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11 CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} And remove upper filter and lower filter.

Then restart computer then check.


Also locate the below key and make sure it's value is 3 not 4. HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\services\usbstor make sure start value is 3 not 4


if still no luck
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps

Cannot read or reformat my 500gb buffalo external hard drive


download Acronis Disk Director Suite via torrent. install the program. open the application. locate the drive that is not working. usually its labeled "unallocated". click on the "Acronis Recovery Expert" button. and again select the drive you want to recover/fixed. there are instructions on how you want the program to run its recovery. its pretty simple. bare in mind before running the application. your hard drive should be connected directly to your PCs USB port and not by any hubs. by this. your computer should be able to read your HD again.

Red light on on my Buffalo HD


Red ERROR LED The way the unit gives diagnostic codes is by long and short flashes of the specific light. The number of long flashes give the first of two numbers and the number of short flashes give the second. For instance, one long flash and three short flashes would indicate an error of 13 -
E 00
(No light, beep only) - MPU error E 01 DRAM data line error E 02 DRAM address line error E 03 RTC chip error E 04 Flash rom error E 10 UPS power loss E 11 fan error (RPM too low or not functional) E 12 cooling error (unable to remove heat by the fan) E 15 disk error E 16 unable to locate internal HDD E 17 Unable to communicate with the RTC chip E 21 unable to communicate with the Phy chip E 22 mount error. The original Buffalo firmware has the following error messages based on the number of flashes:
3 Partition problem with hard drive. Reformat the hard drive. 4 Fan problem. 5 ROM problem. 6 Hard Drive can not be recognized. 7 Problem with motherboard (RAM, LAN, or Hard Drive controller). Exerted from http://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/Information/LSProLED

I hope this has been helpful, unfortunately without more information I cannot help any further.

I just installed a new hard drive on my compaq nx6110 and I am unable to get onto the internet...any ideas?


Dear Friend,

Your new hard drive doesn't have anything to do with the internet...In fact, if you are using wireless connectivity, you must pair with your wireless router.
The other solution will be to install missing drivers and, you can review them by right clicking on My Computer or Computer then, manage. There you would have to click on Devices located on your left panel and then you will have yellow triangles or yellow marks / ! \ meaning, that you have to reinstall them in order to make it work.
Recommendation: Use another computer, go to HP.com then support, when there look for your model number and select your operating system then download each drivers that are missing from your computer by using and external flash drive, then, take the flash drive to your laptop and install drivers.

Good Luck!!

I just installed a new Buffalo external drive, it came with a CD with all the drivers on it. Do you still have that CD? If not check their website at: "http://www.buffalotech.com/support/downloads/". Look up your model number and you'll find the necessary files to download.

External Buffalo Hard Disk 500 Gb model no HD-PF500U2/BK-AP not detecting when connnected to a laptop or a desktop PC


Check the usb port function in the computer bios settings and be sure that it is set to yes. Connect properly your external drive. If it has two wire usb connections, use both to obtain the maximum power that will be need by your drive.
