MY USB FLASH DRIVE ISNT SHOWING UP AT ALL ON MY LAPTOP


Hi,
Check to see if the drive works in another USB port or in another computer. This should tell you if the problem is with the drive or the computer or port you are using.

What kind of computer are you using?
Does it give any warnings when you plug the drive in?

The SimpleTech 160GB ext. drive has a usb 2.0 cable with a y plug. I can only plug in one but I use the additional power supply. I get a message at times telling me to use the usb 2.0 port for faster...


You are using the correct connection, the external power supply is powering the drive, so the USB cable is just handling data. I believe the message may be telling you that you will get faster performance using a USB 2.0 connection, it is probably sensing that your computer's USB port is USB 1.1.

Plug into USB port... recognizes device when I click on it from my computer tells me to format the drive... I try but the format fails.?


Is your usb drive locked? The micro vault classic has a lock switch on it. This prevents you from writing data to it. Please make sure that is not in the lock position. Then plug it back into your pc and you can go ahead and format it.

It could be that your computers do not put out enough power in the USB ports. (Apple laptops are notorious for this). You can call up Western Digital and tell them that it is not working and they will send you a free dual USB cable. This cable has one plug for usb power and one for data so the drive should work with it (although it will use up 2 of your USB ports!!).
