Opening travel drive on latptop

Hi!

I just bought a Verbatim travel drive at Office Max. I used the drive at home on my PC, created some flipcharts and saved them to my travel drive. When I went to open it again, it asked me for a password - I had owned a different brand travel drive before and never had to do that, but I figured it out, and created a password, and was able to open it again and retrieve my data.

I am a teacher, so I then took my Verbatim to my classroom, inserted it into my MacBook laptop, but it will not let me open it. It comes up with some screen I do not recognize, never asking me for my password, only showing some gray boxes with the titles "desktop" and "VSafe100Vista." It won't let me get my info.

Thanks for any help you can give.
Janine

My new verbatim 53018 1Tb harddisc is not working, my computer does not see it.


Im not sure what computer you have, but whenever I use an external hard drive on my computer, an icon either shows up on the toolbar, I dont think in your case thats happening or you would have obviously seen it, however if you have a start or home button on your toolbar on your regular desktop location then you can click to open your computer menu e.i. control panel, word, games,...etc.. look for your "computer" file, click to open, then look for "Hard Drives" or "Devices and Storage" also check and see if anywhere in those menus if there is a "Removable Devices and Storage" tab, if you find these menus and verbatim 53018 doesnt show up in any of your menu tabs then try creating a file on your computer and saving it to your hard drive in the "Save" file location, if its connected properly then you should see a message screen that asks you which location would you like to save your file, it should list all possible storage locations and hopefully Verbatim 53018 is listed.

Hope this helps you out.

Hello John,

The Store 'n' Go PinStripe USB Drive from Verbatim has a push and pull sliding feature which protects the USB connection when it is not in use without the need for a separate cap which is easily lost.

Plug it into the usb port and go to 'my computer' there you will se the drive most likely named verbatim, double click to open it.

Then open a new window and find the file you would like to transfer, simply click on it and drag and drop it into the usb drives window and wait for the file transfer to finish.

External hard drive doesn't respond


Shut your computer down. Disconnect you external hardrive. Power up your computer again. Power up the Verbatim and then connect to a USB port. You should hear a very quiet 'ping'.

Go to My Computer, and the Verbatim should be showing as one of your drives (probably Drive D). You should be able to open it from there.

Make sure that you have a Desk Top Icon for opening the hardrive, it makes it so much easier. Hope this helps

Verbatim 250GB External Hard Disk not recognized by PC


Almost always, when a USB drive doesn't assign a drive letter in MY Computer the issue is a Mapped network drive using the drive letter the USB drive is attempting to use.

With the drive connected, open DISK MANAGEMENT find the USB Drive, right click it and assign it an available drive letter.
