Question about SimpleTech SimpleDrive 160 GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive
Whenever I try to access my Simple Tech hard drive the computer freezes. Currently when the device is plugged in the computer gets incredibly slower.
If you computer is locking up and or running slow this is a sign that there is a problem with the drive. The computer is trying to access the drive but having trouble doing this. I used to have one of these and had trouble with it from time to time. I would recommend that you try running check disk on the drive to see if this makes a difference.
If you still have trouble try the drive on another computer. Note you may have to assign a drive letter to it. The links below will help you do this.

If you are out of warrranty I would pull the drive out of the encloser to seee if you still have trouble because in most cases when external drives fail the problem is with the USB controller and not the drive its self.
Let me know if you have any more problems or questions
