My desktop has a 6 year-old motherboard which will not start up if the external USB HDD is turned on. So I have to make sure the HDD is off before turning on the PC in the morning. After it starts booting I can turn on the HDD and everything works fine.

Does your machine work this way?

Control Panel, Computer Management, Disk Management. Check that your Samsung disk 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.

tryright clicking on my computer and selecting map network drive.(You'll get thesame results by right clicking on network neighborhood icon on your desktop andselecting map network drive.)This is the method many people use to assign adrive name (i.e.,letter) to a drive.
How about asking you to format it before you can use it?Then you can recover datafrom hard drive withdata recovery software like Tenorshare DataRecovery.It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look forlost data.

try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use asoftech data recovery program to recover your files.

I used this file recovery program before, quite easy to use and works well for me.

We have been using a 2 TB Samsung G3 Station External Hard Drive to connect to the TV through a laptop. One day it was working next day no power seems to be going through it. The light doesn't come on...


Assuming you don't hear any activity it might be the power supply that has died. Check if it's under any warrant.. if not you can always rescue the hard drive by taking it out of the enclosure and plugging it into your PC. Odds are it's a SATA drive. Either way.. taking it out of the enclosure will rule out of it's the hard drive or the components. Good luck.

My 2TB g3 station doesnt wanna work on my mac os x 10.4.11, it says it cannot be modified.


You problem is most likely because the hard disk is formatted using NTFS which can be read on MAC OS but does not allow writing data on it. Solution is to backup your data somewhere and give it a clean format.
Click on the spotlight icon (the magnifying glass) in the upper right corner of your screen, and typing "disk utility."

Once in disk utility, select your external drive in the list on the left of the Disk Utility window, and click "erase". Select FAT32 as your file format, name the volume, and click the "erase" option.

REMEMBER TO BACKUP YOUR DATA as everything will be wiped out during a format!

Is it possible to repair Samsung G3 Station if the USB connector inside the box has been broken?


The adapter board is a common fault, I have had about 20 of these cases in the last year, and It has made me hate external hard drives. My advice, take the hard drive out, its easy enough, remove the top two rubber feet, take out the screws, pry the top open, gently lift out and take the screw out of the adapter board. Now get an external reader. I've just got a cheapo for $50 and it works great for me (http://www.chinavasion.com/product_info.php/pName/premium-dual-sata-hard-drive-docking-station/) but if you want to pay more for something more reliable, I can't blame you. Keep the area reasonably dust free and hard drives you're not using in zip lock bags and you shall have much less drama, trust me.

The drive is connected to the PC or the media player but neither can detect it-there is no power to the drive even though it is connected.


START MENU, RIGHT CLICK MY COMPUTER, SELECT MANAGE, UNDER STORAGE, CLICK DISK MANAGEMENT, WAIT A FEW SECONDS, THEN ENLARGE THE PAGE, LOOK FOR THE DRIVE, IF FOUND RIGHT CLICK THE DRIVE, SEE IF YOU GET ANY OPTIONS LIKE MARK PARTITION AS ACTIVE. MARK AS ACTIVE. MAKE SURE THAT "ALL" CONNECTIONS ARE CORRECT. ALSO MAY WANT TO GO TO SAMSUNG WEBSITE AND DOWNLOAD THE USER MANUAL. I HAVE A WD 2TB AND I FIND THE TIME TO READ THE TROUBLE SHOOTING AREAS..................HOPE THIS HELPS..............JEFFXC
