Question about Verbatim (R) Wallet Drive(TM) USB Portable Leather 640GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

My Verbatim 600gb Wallet drive keeps making click/beeps and disconnecting/reconnecting from my laptop. I keep getting messages that I need to format it, but it never stays connected long enough to even do that. Occasionally the data on it is accessable for a few minutes... Is it an usb power prblem?

Why wont windows recognize my verbatim 500gb serial no JB0094011152


Go into Device Manager and if it doesn't appear there click "scan for hardware changes". If that doesn't work, makes sure you have plug and play enabled. Always use the safely remove hardware option when unplugging it.

Is it installed as a second drive, or by USB?

If by USB;
The time given is about right for USB 1.0 speeds.
Is the machine you are connecting it an older model and does not support USB 2.0?
It could be that, although you are connecting to a a faulty or inferior cable, or a device that provides multiple USB ports?

If it is connected to a motherboard, then it may not have the DMA (Direct memory access) enabled.
This can produce similar very slow transfer rates.

To check this, go into control panel.
Select System,
Select Hardware,
Select Device manager,
Select IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers,
There are two, the Primary and the Secondary Channel.
Select one and go into advanced settings.
There are two devices, 0 and 1
They should be on Auto Detection, and DMA if available.
If you see PIO only, Change it!

These are instructions for XP, which can drop to PIO only for some reason.

HI have been advised by a source I trust that full format is not required, and takes ages on the latest drives. I have had no problems since i have been using it.
Having started a full format, it might be best to complete one, rather than see if quick format works.

Running Windows 7 Home premium. External drive Verbatim USB 250 Silver is recognized, but, needs to be reformatted. I've tried to format (NTSF) using tool in Disk Management. Format runs forever and...


Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

This problem happens quite a bit with Windows Vista. It seems that Windows Vista puts a hidden file in the backup; which locks the device.

Open the external device (Windows 7 is fine). Click on "view hidden folders and files." Delete any hidden files you may have in the external.

Go back to "my computer" and right click on the external hard drive letter. Choose properties and security tab. Make your user-name as a main user (administrator) and disable the read only.

Reboot the computer and see if this works.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
