Question about MediaGear ImageBank (MGHD-120 ) (MGHD120) 20 GB Hard Drive

5 Answers

Media Gear MGHD-120

I have a flash drive that worked with my other laptop.
I have just upgraded to another laptop and my computer does not recognize the USB device.
If I look at the message it states that no drivers are loaded for this device.
So what I think I need is software.
Am I on the right path?
And if so is there a place I can download the software or purchase a disc to fix it?

    This device works as a USB storage device and does not require extra software, if you are useing vista and you don't see the disc in my computer try updateing your vista to SP1



    The disc probably works perfectly in a xp machine correct?

An USB flash drive is made out of a memory and extremely simple controller chip installed on a tiny board with a connector.
If the drive is completely unresponsive then the chip died. This is terminal, nothing can be done to save it or to recover what was in it.

Seagate FreeAgent is flashing but not recognized by computer


Hello sir/ma'am hi, the flashing red means that the hard drive has problems, you usually cannot read any data making it no to appear on your computer. Suggestion: The logical thing to do is get a new one, NOW if you have data on that drive, you need to disassemble it and get the hard drive unit, place it on a computer, run seagate disk manager and pray that you may recover the drive data.

WD WD1200B008-RNN not recognized by laptop/desktop


I had a similar problem with some other brand of external drive. I disconnected it without being stopped and then nothing would recognize it. It was new when this happened, I contacted the manufacturer and they sent me a files with software and instructions to recover it. It was not that easy since I'm no computer geek, it took quite a while but finally the drive worked again. Info was lost since I had to formated it, can't remember exactly is low level formatting but alive again.
Also try to go to my computer icon on the desktop and right click, go to "manage" there you'll see an option for disk management, there you might be lucky and make it work again.
Hope this helps, regards.

My Windows XP is no longer recognizing my cruzer 8gb


With the flash drive plugged into your computer, go to start>settings>control panel>administrative tools>computer management>disk management
Your flash drive should be there. Right click it and select "change drive letter and paths." Click on "change." Change the drive letter.
Just follow the directions to finish.

Sometimes, if you turn the computer on, insert the flash drive, and reboot, the drive will show up, it is detected on start along with your other drives.

(I recommend starting at the end of the alphabet (Z) and work backwards when selecting the drive letters for flash drives, that way, in the future it will be easier to recognize them.)

Changing HHD on Averatec 5500


Hi Sunergos!
Replacing the drive is real easy! Diconnect the power and remove the battery. On the bottom of the laptop, lower right hand side, you will a panel, with one screw. Remove the screw, and lift the panel. The drive had a plastic pull tab on it. Lift up gently, and pull to the right. Don't lift too high. The drive will come right out. The Drive is held in a "tray" with four little screws. Remove those, and place the new drive in the same way. Just reverse the procedure, to install it, making sure the pins line up the with the female connector. Hint - wait 10 min or so before putting the drive in, or it won't recognize it. Newegg has a 120 gig drive for that lappy for $74. Upgrading my Averatec 5500, I ended up with a 3400+ CPU, 1 gig ram, and a 120 gig harddrive, that dual boots to Vista or XP, and is just as fast in either OS. Good Luck!
