One or more of the hints below will probably sort out most USB problems with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port

6. For FLASH DRIVES you should ensure that the device is set for "quick removal" using the drive control panel properties or use the USB "Safely Remove Hardware" option. If you dont do this there is a very strong chance that any files you transfer may not be there when you plug into another computer.
7. It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.
You should also do this to cheack the drives connections are not bad inside the enclosure.
8. If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.

9. If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further
USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason.
Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.

USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.

Are you sure you have the correct power supply? This can happen if not enough current, as required by the unit, is being supplied to the drive.

The USB icon appears; but, cannot access the drive at all. Does not show up as one of the drives. Suspect the drive is toast. Can the drive in the box be replaced with another IDE drive? If so, is...

The Wolverine is a high-speed drive, so try also connecting it to an externally powered "dumb" USB hub. HS spindles may require a slightly higher current and the USB port may not supply it properly.

I have not been able to find the Wolverine's internal HD specs, but the device was reviewed in 2003 and at that date most 2.5" disks were EIDE. While some EIDE drives did have a limitation of 137 Gb of addressable space, this was mostly solved even in embedded chipsets (such as Cypress) by 2003.

So, my guess is that with all probability you can place any EIDE 2.5" drive in the enclosure; if I'm wrong (I think not), the drive will still work and you'll have to repartition it, to only access its first 137 Gb.

Let me know how it goes.

What I suspect here is that,
the USB port that you are using is a USB 1.0 port, which has a lower voltage not enough to power on your Storage drive.

In this case, there are two things you can do,

1. Change the USB port you are using for the storage drive to a USB 2.0 one (Just keep Checking all the ports one by one in case you dont know which one it is).

2. If your Storage drive has external power facility, just plug it in an external power first, before connecting it to the system.

If there are no USB 2.0 Ports on your system at all,

then just go to any electronic store and tell them you want to buy a USB 2.0 Expansion card.

and if it is a laptop, A USB 2.0 PCMCIA card.

Install it on your system, and connect your external drive through it.

Hope this helps you out.

Not enougn power


The limitation is actually imposed by the circuitry of the PC as supplied to the individual USB ports.  What you probably need is an externally powered USB HUB.  You will have to determine how much current your drive draws. An example of a max 1 Amp @ 2X500ma/Port is "7-port USB 2.0 hub" [AP-HUB207]. You can check out the specs here >

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
