I had problems with mine after a few years, it wouldn't show up in windows. I took it apart and the hard drive had moved away from the front panel and unplugged itself. there are 4 screws on the bottom that hold the hard drive in place, they must have loosened allowing the drive to move back unplugging itself from the panel. thought I had lost a few years worth of backed up pictures, glad it was that simple.

Replace the cable you are currently using with your printer cable and see if it is the cable if that is not the case I would open the case, and check your connections on the hard drive, there is a chance it might have come loose.

Hi I Have a 500GB External desktop dtive and can not get it to work, i have try it with two computers and it do not pick it up the Green light on the box is just flashing and not on all the time regards ...


Try connecting it to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting it to a different computer.

If the problem persists, either:

* the USB cable is damaged,

* inside the enclosure, the disk-drive is not functioning
(although the lamp indicates that it is getting electrical power)

* inside the enclosure, the USB-to-disk-drive adapter has failed.

If the warranty is still valid, Seagate will replace it, at no cost to you.

Or, open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and temporarily connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it is working at all.

Or, buy a new, compatible, disk-drive, and mount it into the enclosure, to make a "new" external disk-drive.

Plug it in, It's just sitting there clicking, no action


Do you have the AC adapter plugged into power, and plugged into the Coolmax?
(Plus the USB cable plugged into the computer, and to the Coolmax?)

Is your Coolmax an XtremeFiles F1-B?
The link below is to a review of the F1-B, and also details out how to set it up, and install it. This should also work for your external backup harddrive, if it is not an F1-B.

Install a seagate 7200.7 in a cool max enclosure


They sure are !
You need an IDE or EIDE enclosure.

If you bought the enclosure very recently you may want to try taking it back and swapping it for another one

If its a big box store you might want to try the "it just doesn't work and I am clueless" routine
Seen that work quite a bit much to my dismay. Then the people usually get money back and go to another store to get the correct item.

NOTE I dont condone that method !

WD 500gb external HD shuts down when plugged into USB port


Try a replacement USB cable first. If that does not fix the problem, then the USB to SATA adapter board is faulty, in that case you will need to take out the internal disk to replace the external enclosure.

YouTube - How To: Take Apart A Western Digital My Book Enclosure

If unit is under warranty see : WD Support > Warranty Services > End User > Warranty Policy.

Note any SATA external enclosure willl work wthe same with the internal WD HD.

Problem with Hard Drive


The easiest way to do that is to purchase an external enclosure for your type of desktop hard drive. They come with usb, firewire or both types of connections. It is a simple matter to remove the hard drive from the desktop and install in the enclosure. Plug it in and connect to your notebook. The enclosure will be seen as another hard drive and you can then copy what you need from the desktop hard drive to the notebook. Once on the notebook you can burn to dvd's if you like. This will not work for copying programs. They may still work, navigate to the program folder on the hard drive, find the application folder, open it and find the starting icon, right click on it and send to desktop.
All this is moot if the drive itself is too damaged to spin.

I don't think BYTECC sells complete external hard drives. But they do sell the enclosures. People buy the enclosures and install a hard drive in them and, now you have a working external hard drive. I have don't this before, but I have never used BYTECC before. You can download the drivers for there enclosures at there website:

http://www.byteccusa.com/

They have several different versions, Just pick the correct one, hopefully the enclosure has some markings or a sticker identifying the model.
