I believe you also need a dc transformer that has a wall plug on one end and the plug for your USB hub on the other.

Step 1:
Problems with Verbatim portable hard drives vary depending on your model of hard drive, your operating system and your computer hardware. Some problems can include insufficient USB power output, the file system format, and potential overheating due to enclosure materials.

File System b> Verbatim portable hard drives come formatted for use with Mac computers. If you're using it with a Windows or Linux computer, you will need to format it to a file system that your operating system will recognize; Windows computers typically work with NTFS, while modern Linux distributions use ext4. If you have computers with mutliple operating systems, FAT32 is usually considered easier for all operating systems to recognize. Verbatim does not recommend switching a portable drive between PC and Mac computers once you've formatted the drive one way or the other. Adequate Power While most computers supply adequate power with one USB port, older computers can have insufficient power output. If your computer doesn't seem to be powering the drive, use of a Y-shaped USB cable, designed to be plugged into two USB ports, can get more power to run the drive. Additionally, consider trying different USB ports on the same computer; some USB ports get more power than others. Drivers b> Make sure that you have any relevant drivers related to the hard drive that you have purchased. If your drive didn't come with a setup disc, you can check the Verbatim website for product drivers. Overheating b> Of Verbatim's seven portable hard drives, four are enclosed in plastic; of the other three, one is enclosed in aluminum, one in leather, and one in rubber. While all the drives are tested to run well with their enclosure, metal enclosures conduct heat away from the hard drive and help to prevent overheating. Plastic, on the other hand, is an insulator, so plastic enclosures may contribute to heat buildup. Check plastic-enclosed drives for overheating and avoid leaving them plugged in when not in use.

I have a verbatim external hard drive, model usb500 and my computer does not recognize it. I have it plugged into a working usb port and the blue light on the drive is on, but my computer isn't...


You need to assign a drive letter for it to show up in Windows.
Right click on My Computer, click Properties. Then go to disc management, and right click on your external hard drive, and click Assign Drive Letter, and choose a letter and it will show up in My Computer.
Good luck!

Usb500 with windows7, i plug in and windows recognizes the drive but no icon in my computer.


you may have to go to disk management and format the drive first. go to start > right-click on computer > select manage. this will open computer management. go to disk management on the left pane. you should see the verbatim drive as unallocated space, right-click on it and format the drive as NTFS quick format.

How to use verbatim model # usb500


Plug it in one of the usb ports of your computer. Check if the external hard drive has a power button.
Normally, something will pop up on the screen asking you to install the software that came with it.

Follow the instructions and you may now use the external drive as your back up drive.
