Glyph external will not load on desktop

Please, I need help immediately! I have to upload an ad for a deadline within 1/2 hour, the ad is on the glyph external hard drive, and though the icon loads onto the desk top, the colored ball on MacPro just keeps going round and round.  It is a Glyph 2. It has been acting weird lately.

    I have 2 - 320GB and a 250GB and they all have problems.  I don't know what the problem is.  Some time they load up and some times not.  I tried using Disk Warrior and it seem working but then acting strange again.  


    They are more expensive than the competitors because I wanted the best but I'm not sure they are even reliable at this point.

Help! Glyph PortaGig 50 won't show up!!


Control Panel, Computer Management, Disk Management. Check that your Glyph is present. If it is present, does it have a drive letter assigned? If not Right Click and Assign Drive Letter.

If drive not present you should check power and data connections.

My glyph gt050q wont load up. the computer wont recognize it. im running mac 10.6.7.


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps

PC won't see my glyph drive after I have installed Mac Drive 8


Take it back to where you bought it, and exercise the warranty, to get it replaced or repaired.

My glyph is not loading and i did nothing wrong or weird to it, i want to smash it now!


Did you format the Glyph tabletop harddrive? If you didn't format it, it won't work.

Your Operating System is not stated, so let me give you an example using Windows XP. (Home or Pro doesn't matter)

Power cord plugged into the Glyph harddrive, and plugged into a surge protector, 6-pin Firewire cable, or 9-pin Firewire cable from Glyph to computer plugged in, Glyph power turned on, computer on, Windows loaded,

1.Left-click on Start, then Right-click on My Computer. Left-click on Manage, in the small fly-out menu.

2.In the Computer Management window, under Storage, click on Disk Management. The Write Signature wizard will pop up.

3.Use the wizard to write a signature to the new drive. The drive must be named. Name it what you want. (Drive 2; My Drive; Storage 2: Your name;
whatever you wish)
This drive must be named, or Windows won't be able to find it.

4.Now I suggest just making one partition, and it will be the Primary partition. Do this by selecting the Maximum Size. (Partitioning: Think of your harddrive as a large room. A Partition is a wall, dividing the room into two rooms. This time you won't be dividing the room. You will use the whole room. 250 GigaBytes of it) Choose -> NTFS.
Follow the instructions, let it format the harddrive.

You should be good to go now.

Glyph drive wont boot


you could try a program like disk warrior or disk rescue, or you could try giving Glyph a call, they have pretty good warranty coverage.

My glyph is not seen on my mac


If the drive is connected via firewire, power the drive. If the drive powers and you can place your hand on it and feel it "spinning", and still it does not mount. Try a different FW cable. If still no mounting action, place your ear on the drive to hear any grinding or clicking. If the drive sounds to be operating normal, open disk utility.. Hard drive/Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility The drive should appear in the left pane under your computers hard drive. You should see the button to MOUNT it on the top right. Hope this works
