Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I downloaded everything on my computer to SimpleTech external hard drive - so as to restore my laptop computer. In trying to put everything back onto my computer I seem to have lost almost everything. A Dell technician was able (after 2 1/2 hours) to retore my photos, but none of my correspondence, recipies or embroidery programs - huge files). Then, Dell restored my computer again - now I cannot find even my pictures. I feel they must be on my SimpleTech drive somewhere - seems I have 18,000 files on it, but I sure cannot find them! HELP

I think the dell technician was re-format your computer. once the computer is reformat.. all the file in your computer was gone and you will never see it again, unless they copy your files. thanks!

Mine will work on my desktop but not my notebook


This is usually a corrupt USB driver for the device. On the machine that has trouble recognizing the drive:
right click my computer
click on properties
click on device manager
find the USB devices, click the plus sign to expand the tree.
Plug in your drive, see which new device appears, if it has the exclamation point, then right click on the device and click uninstall. Reboot the system.

Reformatted without downloading software to my desktop


robilynn -

Here is the driver page, you'll have to get the model number off of the drive to download the proper one:

Here is the page for the manuals (top of the page), just choose Pro or Duo pro for whichever is the drive you have:

That should give you everything you need to get it back up and running.

Simpletech 500 GB external hard drive - unresponsive


If you really can not get it to work anymore, you could try opening it up and connecting the hdd directly on a IDE/SATA port in your computer. This will only work if you have a desktop, for a laptop you would need all kinds of converters.

Computer does not recognize simpletech


Assuming Windows, try the Device Manager and see if the (old) disk is listed there in the disk drives section.
If so, right-click it and select Uninstall. (do this while the new driver is disconnected)

That should force Windows to recognize and reinstall the new drive when you plug it again.

For other causes check out the external hard disk problems.

Simpletech 320gb hard drive


the hard drive inside of the external device is damaged. probably the drive head scratched one or more of the platters inside of the drive. this is a common occurance with laptops and computers when they take a dive off of a desk.

need to either get a replacement drive or another external hard drive.
