PC cant detect my Simpletech 500gb hard drive

I have just bought a 2nd hand Simpletech 500gb hard drive in good condition. i tried to test it out in my computer in my office. after i have plugged in the connections, the balloon on the lower right part of the screen confirms that i have my simpletech attached in the usb. but when i check the "My Computer" no additional drives were added. What seems to be the problem? How can I fix it? I am yet to try the hard drive at my pc at home.

I have my Simpletech 500gb drive pluged in but


Okay, so it should be picking up with that machine. First try re-seating all cables (power and USB both sides) and also try plugging it into a different USB port. Be patient and give it a few minutes to find it. Let me know whether or not that works.

I have a simpletech pininfarina 500 external hard-drive and cant find driver software online to install it.computer also doesnt recognise it


I have found a driver page of simpletech:
http://www.simpletech.com/support/support_downloads.php
I believe that driver for your model is not available in the above link.
The drive would not be recognized when it is not compatible with your notebook hard disk.
I suggest you to contact simpletech for getting the drivers as they will have the hard disk drivers.

500Gb SimpleTech Ext Drive No Power


Hello.
It sounds like you might have a problem with the power supply.
I have seen MANY external hard drives with failing power supplies. Take it to the store you purchased it from for a check up, it should still be under warrantee if its only 3 months old.
Good Luck!

Simpletech Signature 500gb "is not accessible"


Right click on MY COMPUTER and select MANAGE.

Go to DEVICE MANAGER and expand the DISK DRIVES category on the right side window.

You should see the Simpletech drive listed under there. Delete the Simpletech drive and click on OK. Restart the computer.

Windows should re-detect the simpletech and re-install the built in drivers automatically.

Can't detect my drive


It could need a power adapter if it cannot draw enough from your usb port. I would try another port on the back of your PC.
