" a problem occurred during installation"

I have had the drive for a few months now with no problems. Recently there were several power outages which seemed to cause havoc with my external hardrive.The computer does not communicate with the drive. There is an error flaf next to the device in the device manager. After uninstalling and then plugging back in to start all over, the computer tells me "a problem occurred during instalation, your device may not work properly". The computer recognizes the drive but will not comunicate with it.

After shutting down the computer a few times when transfer file from PC to CAXE3702T0, all of a sudden, blue screen and when the Window 7 boot up again, it said the CAXE3702T0 has CRC problem. I tried...

CRC or Cyclic Redundancy Check is a process that helps in identifying any errors that might occur during the data transmission process. Data is usually transmitted in small blocks, and a CRC value is assigned to each block and transmitted along with it. This CRC value is verified at the destination to ensure that it matches the CRC value transmitted from the source. A CRC error occurs when the two values (source and destination) do not match and the test fails. The main benefit of CRC is that it helps you ensure that data you have received or downloaded is not damaged or corrupt.

Causes of CRC Errors

CRC errors can occur due to many different types of problems. Some of these problems are:

  1. Damage to file during the transmission process.
  2. A problem occurred when the file was being sent.
  3. Problems with the device that is accessing or opening the file.
  4. Problems with the file itself.

Wasd keys are not working during games, letters are punching in as numbers during games

I'm sorry for reviving an old post. I hope you've found a solution. If not, may I suggest what worked for me.

I had the same problem a few months ago. Apparently, Comcast's software called "Constant Guard" was doing something weird like disguising keystrokes or something. Whatever their software was doing, my games were not aware. After uninstalling Constant Guard, problem solved.

If you started incurring this problem after installing Constant Guard, I recommend uninstalling it. You can keep Norton and all the other stuff associated with Comcast's anti-virus package without affecting your games.

Hope this helps...

I have the 1TB wd my book, randomly it isn't recognized on my computer anymore. My computer tells me a problem occurred on hardware installation. I have been using this for 6 months now

The randomness of your problem makes it sound like a power issue. Try plugging it in as the only USB item (if you need to leave the keyboard and the mouse) those are ok. However, don't have speakers, etc.

Also try different USB plugs.

Also, you might want to use a power supply on the drive. If you already have one, can you find one that will give you more amps?

Otherwise, you might try another drive in the case to see if the controllers are working for any drive.

Write back if I can help you further. Also, if this helps, please vote.

I recently had an HDD stop spinning and lock up on me. I saved what data I could and purchased a new one. Within hours of installing it the same issue arose; I figured it was bad luck and had it replaced....

i think its not even your motherboard, first of all clean your PC with an air blower then replace the data cables which connect your hard drive to the motherboard.
also do replace the power supply.

Buslink UII-250 not recognized any longer after fall

i suggest that your hard drive is comatose, from a severe office concussion. Take it to the emergency computer service dude nearby, and hope, cross your fingers, that the data is recoverable.
