Question about IO Magic Corporation GigaBank (I250HD35) 250 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
I plugged the external drive into my laptop it said "new hardware found" and did the whole set up the said "your hardware is installed and ready to use" i went to "my computer" and it just isnt there. I tried ont a different computer and the same thing happened
Let me add acouple things to Lolita's solution: This worked on a I/O Magic Gigabank 320. If the initialize wizard does not appear. Go to the left side of the window that should have popped up listing all of your drives. Right-click on top of the drive you are adding. There should be a red circle with a minus sign on it. Right-click there and select initialize. Now the initialize wizard should start. The drive gets hot. I'd keep it off and only start it when needed. This may make it last longer and help with power surges as well.

I have an I/O Magic Gigabank 320.
Here's what I did.
Right-click on My Computer
Then choose Disk Management in side pane.
You have to right click on the left side of the window that pops up. Right on top of where it lists the Drive you are adding. There should be a red circle with a white minus in it.
Right click and select initialize disk.
Now the initialize wizard will start working.
If you don't use the quick format it may take one hour. I'm not sure of the difference.
Remember this is a usb driven external hard drive. It appears to be a sealed case with no vents.
It gets hot. Use it like a thumb drive and turn off when not in use.
I suspect that if you do this it will last longer and avoid power surges.

If the external hard drive is new, you have to follow these steps:
right-click on My Computer
then choose Disk Management in side pane.
a disk initialization wizard should appear.
Get the new drive formatted now and it should be ready
when you open the My Computer.
Let me know if you have any problems.
