You've probably popped it smell the connections for the smell of burning,check the fuse in the plug should be 5Amp,
there easy to blow, if you don't get the USB plugged in the right way first time it sparks & shorts the ports out on the computer & if you've got the hard drive plugged in & switched on before you plug the USB in then it shorts the drive out as well.
take it back to the shop & tell them two replace it.if they won't then open the unit & take out the drive because that will still work & sell it on e-bay or put it in a desktop pc.

Do I need a seperate dc supply for my Ultra traveldrive usb 2 Why won't it install on my lap top.


> do I need a separate power-supply?

It depends. If the disk-drive inside the enclosure is a 2.5-inch "laptop" disk-drive, then it will draw the necessary electrical power through the USB cable. However, if the disk-drive is a 3.5-inch "desktop" disk-drive, it does require an external power supply.

Will it install on some other computer?

Flashing LED light but not working


Unfortuntly, this caused the drives power source to be exceded and damage the drive or circut board. If you know someone that knows computer well, have them or yourself take the hard drive out and manually connect the driver to a computer and extract your data, if the drive is not damage that is, there is know way to know for sure until you try to connect to a PC directly. Or, purchas another USB external housing.

Toshiba Hard Drive Crash


Hi,
if the datas aleady deleted, then you have nothing to lose. Right ?
What you need is a 2.5 to 3.5 inch IDE ribbon cable connector.
this will enable you to put the drive into an IDE slot on the PC internal motherboard ( primary/secondary )
Unless it,s already 3.5"
boot the computer, see if it recognises the drive. And format it.
then you may be able, to re-fit back into the external casing, and use as an external again.
