I,m not a big fan of simple tech do to the fact that they sell cheap products and 9 times out of 10 they fail mechanically you can try and format to see if that works

Did you try plugging it into another computer? If it reads it on another computer then you can transfer your files. External Hard drives always fail sooner or later. Hope this helps.

I need a manual for the black cherry portable high-speed UB 2.0 hard drive. The one I have is 160 GB. Thanks.


Here is the manual that covers all of the SimpleTech Signature Mini External USB 2.0 Hard Drives. This is a pdf document, so you may need to install Adobe Acrobat Reader if you don't already have it installed.

Can't access drive, drive won't start


If they are clicking it is because there is not enough power coming from the USB ports on your computer. If they don't have an external power source they will each need to be plugged into their own 2 separate USB 2.0 ports, they will not run on USB 1.0 as they won't get the power they need. Laptops tend to have more power robust USB ports than desktops. Hitachi supplies those drives with a pigtail adapter as they are power hungry. You can go down and get the external power supply for the drive and it will solve your problem as well. Or get a powered type USB hub, that has an external power adaptor that van power peripherals They will not run off an unpowered USB hub.
