    Not quite the same drive but same problem with freebie issued by the Economist. Sent it back. I have heard that certain drives from you know where are filled with unwanted stuff. And to add insult unformattable. I would take steps to get it changed.

Windows XP can only see up to 120GB. If you can partition the drive in 4 X120GB and 20GB XP will see five drives. If you need to use the full 500GB, you will need to upgrade to XP with SP3 or Windows 7

An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

Try using a different USB cable. Try a different USB port of that computer. If you have another computer, try using it with this hard drive.

It kinda sounds like it may be that USB hard drive too, getting flaky (going bad).

Trying different cable, USB port and another computer should help aid in debugging this. If it works with different items (cable, different USB port or computer) then you know it's your computer causing issues or it's operating system. If it's all the same outcome with different items tried then it's the hard drive causing issues. Not much to do but get another drive.

It should not matter if your computer's BIOS is set up for USB 1 or 2 support. The drive should still be seen with all files/folders in it, without slowdown or issues you've described.

I require a driver for our Beyond micro external hard drive.


It looks as though there is no driver support for beyond micro although the specs state that the drive is plug and play. which means you just plug it in and windows sets it up. other than that there are no software or drivers for it.

best of luck.
hope this helped.
please remember to rate me.

Windows XP not recognizing the hard drives


On the first drive that does sound DOA if you bought it new, is less than one year old and the warranty hasn?t been voided you should be able to get a refund from the manufacturer. Second drive, have you tried connecting the drive enclosure to another computer as a test? If it can?t read the drive data either I would suspect the enclosure electronics are faulty. Also have you tried the firewire interface yet? Semper Fi, are you active or former?
