    I use the drive to backup our server. After using it for several
    months, my mac says that it can't read the disk. I don't want to
    lose all of my past backups.

SimpleTech 250 gig external drive not recognized on MacBook


It could be formatted in a different manner. See if it is detected by your mac. Go to Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility and see if your hard drive is shown there. If it is, then the formatting of your hard drive is not compatible and you will need to reformat to be able to use it on a mac.

My SimpleTech 250 gb external hard drive has changed from being


Hello,

The reason for drive letters changing is often as simple as having two plugged in at the same time. Changing them again is simple but should be done while all drives are plugged in simultaniously.

So, plug in both usb drives, then right-click on My Computer and select Manage, when the management console opens select disk management. Strating with the other USB drive, select it on the right hand side and then right-click it and select "Change drive letters and paths". Select change from the next window and select a high letter X/Y/Z from the drop down box. Then click ok.

Repeat the last few steps with the external harddrive and select E, when you're done you should have to restart to allow the changes to take place but then it will be set in. You will have to repeat this process if you change which USB port you use for the hub or if you add other additional external drives.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

My computer wont read my Simpletech 500gb hardrive


SimpleTech has problems with their controller board. The HDD inside probably still works fine. You might want to get an external chassis and take the hard drive from the SimpleTech and put it into the external chassis. You will need a sata one.

If its 9.2 it may be because your mac is usb 1 and your external HDD is usb 2. It will recognize it but sometimes it takes longer to see the drive.
