The drive may have gotten badly fragmented. Connect it to the PC, and run defragmentation, say, overnight (may take long with an USB drive).
You can use the defragmenter built into Windows (found in drive's Properties, Tools tab), or better use a 3-rd party solution, like DiskDefrag.

There may be other causes as well, but defragmenting the files/folders on the disk would be my first move. Good luck :)

How to put songs on The Simpletech Drive?


Just plug the Simpletech in the old computer that has the songs on it. Your computer will recognize the Simpletech drive. You can copy (from your old computer) and paste your songs to the Simpletech drive. Maybe all the songs you want will be in your My Music folder under My Documents. If so, you can just copy the whole My Music folder to the Simpletech.

Once you have the songs on the Simpletech, you can now plug it into the new computer. You can copy an paste from the Simpletech to your My Music Folder on the new computer.

You can also use the drag and drop instead of copy and paste.

My hard drive copying and pasting is very slow.For 500-700 mb files it takes more than 25 minutes....what should i do to increase the speed?


Im only guessing that its an older PC and your USB connection is probably USB 1? If this is so you can install a PCI USB 2.0 internal card which normally gives you 4 ports which is about 20 times faster. Cheers from Scott and please vote ........bout $10 - $15 at most i think at any good PC shop

Were you using this on a PC? it may be using Fat or NTFS. If it's seeing the drive and you can't use it, it may be the filing system, I believe macs use a different one than PC's. I would copy the files "if possible" to another flash drive or computer and just re format the 320 gig drive, the mac will install the right filing system for the drive and it should be good to go.

SimpleTech SimpleDrive Pininfarina 320GB Power up problem


It could be that it's internal power supply burnt out,
in which case the drive itself could still be fine.

Try opening up the external case, and removing the drive.
Once you do, plug it in to your computer directly using its SATA cables, and see if that works.

Hope I helped,
Tom
