I have plugged in my iomega portable hard drive and want to backup my computer. How do I do that?


If the drive connecting through a USB port you will see a new drive letter under my computer. You should use the backup utility of your computer to backup your PC onto the new drive or selectively copy documents from your computer's hard drive onto the portable hard drive.

Verbatim 250GB External Hard Disk not recognized by PC


Almost always, when a USB drive doesn't assign a drive letter in MY Computer the issue is a Mapped network drive using the drive letter the USB drive is attempting to use.

With the drive connected, open DISK MANAGEMENT find the USB Drive, right click it and assign it an available drive letter.

I have a Simpletech 320GB portable hard drive. My computer is not recognizing it when I plug it in. I have plugged both USB connections in with no success. I have also tried using a different computer,...


I think it is your hard drive enclosure, and not the hard drive itself.

I would try a USB 2.0 IDE/SATA Serial ATA Hard Drive Adapter Cable Kit, I use mine all the time in repairs, this would be your best bet for getting information off your hard drive. http://insidecomputer.stores.yahoo.net/usb20toidsea.html

Another thing to try, is to take the hard drive out of its encloseure and install it as a second drive on your computer, and see if you can read it that way.

My computer has stopped recognizing the 160 GB portable hard drive (plug and pray)


better plug it to another pc and observe if it would be recognized by the pc. well, sometimes, portable hard drives takes time to be detected by PC specially when it comes to age, better observe it for about 3-5 mins, and if its not detected, try to touch the usb cord of your portable hard drive connecting to your pc and make some adjustments to it.
