For me the problem turned out not too be a problem at all!
Rather a blunder by microsoft.
Go: Computer -> right click on the drive -> Properties -> Hardware: Choose the drive and click on properties -> click change settings and choose Policies
Here you can choose between:
Qiuck removal
or
Better performance

Hello here is the home page:

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=2521#dl

Check first for any drivers missing, in the device manager.
The drives has to be formated before you can use it.
Be carefull not to format the wrong drive with your windows on !!!!.
Click start right click on computer choose manage and open disk handling. The drives ofcourse needs to be connected to the mainboard before you do this.
The harddrives there is not formated is black (unallocated).
This means windows can`t see the drive.
Right click and choose to format (all files on it will be erased)
Next you have to choose what drive letter, i think this will be the E and F drive.
Here is some youtube video that shows you how:

Windows 7 driver for160GB eGo USB 2.0 Portable Hard Drive?


According to the Iomega Support web site you do not need additional drivers for using your Iomega eGo drive with Windows 7 unless you have a USB 3.0 device.

See this Iomega document on what you should do if your drive is not detected on Windows 7

About 2 months ago I bought a samsung s2 portable 1Tb. It has worked fine until yesterday. It slipped down from where it was laying (while plugged in and running) and was hanging the 20 cm usb-cabel. Now I...


Hanging by the 20cm USB cable?

The cable could be stretched, and wires broken inside.
The cable to small circuit board, inside the case, could have broken solder joints.
The circuit board inside the Samsung's case could be broken.

Inside that small outer case of the Samsung portable is a laptop size Harddrive.
The harddrive measures 2.5 inches across in width.

(6.4cm. In comparison a desktop size harddrive is 3.5 inches across in width, or 8.9cm)

The harddrive is a SATA unit also.

This is a general example of a 2.5 SATA harddrive,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148591


Inside the outer case (External Enclosure) is also a small circuit board (PCB)
The harddrive plugs into the small circuit board, and the circuit board has a USB cable attached to it.

(Or there is a small cable from circuit board to harddrive. Then a USB cable to the circuit board)


I would suggest removing the 2.5 SATA harddrive, and install it into an economical external enclosure.

Example of a 2.5 SATA External Enclosure,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3195233&CatId=2783

Basic guidance in removing the Harddrive from a Samsung S2 Portable,

1) It looks as though the outside front is a thick cover like a label. It may be that you peel back the corners, and there will be a screw in each corner.

(For example; Where it states Samsung. Go to the right corner. Does this cover-like material peel back? Is there a screw underneath? Remove it.
Go to the opposite corner. Now above to the left and right corners)

The unit looks to come apart in two halves.

Might just be held together by sticky tape.

Here are some videos performing opening the external enclosure, (Case) of other external portable harddrives,

2) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2vUMO2mGLE&feature=related

There are other related videos. In general most are not very professional, but get the job done.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I have purchased a Samsung S2 500G however the port is now not cannot detect the harddrive and the light keeps flashing, i have tried a different machine.. HELP have i lost all my data?


click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems also make sure the computers Ram and Cmos battery are securely seated
if this fails to fix the problem

you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap if this solution does not work and you might need one
hope this helps

I guess you're trying to eject the Kindle from the task bar "(safely remove hardware". Try going into Start/Computer/right click on Kindle/ select eject. This worked for me when I had the same problem.

My Samsung YP-S2 Mp3 player can't be recognised by computers when I plug it in through the usb input (it used to work), therefore I'm not able to upload music on it anymore. How can I fix this bug?


Samsung Player Is No Longer Detected By Windows XP, Vista, Emodio Or
Samsung Media Studio.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When your computer doesn't recognize your Samsung MP3 player, programs
such as Samsung Media Studio (SMS), Emodio, Windows Media Player
(10 or 11) do not allow you to transfer files to your player.
In SMS and Emodio, the portable icon appears grayed out.
In Windows Media Player, you are prompted to connect a device.
Your PC may fail to recognize your player for a variety of reasons.
To begin troubleshooting, scroll down, and then click the operating
system your computer is currently running.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
General Operating System Information
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
On Windows computers, Samsung MP3 players require at least Windows XP
Service Pack 2. If you have an older operating system such as Windows
2000 or Windows 98, your computer won't recognize your player until you
upgrade your PC to at least Windows XP Service Pack 2.
If your PC is running Linux or MAC, it will not recognize some MP3
players that support only MTP mode. However, it will recognize players
that support UMS mode and list them as mass storage devices.
The following Samsung MP3 players support UMS: YP-U1, YP-U2, YP-U3,
YP-U4, YP-U5, and YP-S2.
The following Samsung MP3 players support both MTP and UMS mode: YP-Z5
and YP-P3.
Windows Vista may fail to detect you device if the player is not
connected properly, Windows Media Player is not installed or has become
corrupted, Vista is unable to install the MTP drivers, or the MTP patch
is not installed.
You can check it out further by going to this website and entering the information about your player
