Windows 7 doesnt recognize external hard drive


In my opinion either the dive is bad or the power supply is bad. A bad power supply can be fixed by getting a new case, $20 on Amazon, Ebay, etc. Data on a bad drive may be recovered by using specialized software. I used DiskInternals(.com) "UnEraser" successfully to recover data from a disk that would not mount.

Trying to figure out if my acomdata 80 GB Hard Drive still works, its been along time since I"ve used it, was wondering if I got the fire wire connections right, Are you supposed to use two fire...


just one firewire cable will work.
if the unit doesn't power on you can pull the hard drive out and put it in another external hard drive case usb/firewire/sata.
if it doesn't work then the only option to recover the data is to send it to a 3rd party hard drive recovery.

What should the input power supply be


The input is USA 110 - 120 Volts AC, Europe, 230 - 250 V AC.

A lot of adapters will work on anything from 90 V AC to 250 V AC, it is clearly indicated on the actual unit itself, if you look. If it is, it can be used anywhere.

When I hook-up to my laptop ( Lenvono X200. The drive spins but does not connect. The blue LED light comes on for about few seconds, then goes off.


You *may* have a problem with this particular drive and laptop combination due to the amount of power available at the USB connector of the laptop and the power requirements of the drive. Sometimes, there simply isn't enough power at the USB port to power the drive. This can be a result of low battery power, having other devices connected (at the same time) to other USB ports and, in the case of earlier laptops - a lower designed USB electrical rating (the newer laptops have enough power to power these drives now). The early USB ports basically were for connecting mice, cameras, and small thumb drives.

You can check yourself by seeing the drive works on another computer. If it does, it is likely this power problem described above. You can get around the limited power problem by purchasing a AC POWERED USB hub. A powered USB hub will need to be plugged into house current and will provide the power needed by the drive. This frees the laptop power supply from trying (and failing) to supply the power needed by the drive. Of course, this limits the portability of the whole set up - needing a source of AC power whenever you want to use the drive can be a hassle. Smaller capacity drives usually have lower power requirements, and may be a better option if additional portable, hard drive space is needed.

I hope this helps!

Simpletech 96300-40001-001 bought in the US, can it be used abroad where current is 240V?


Yes. You can use it while abroad. This equipment do not use any external power source. It draws its power through the USB cord. which is standard 5 volts. However, other equipments, that is connected directly to AC must be working on 230V. For example, your are going on a trip. You take your lap top and this SimpleDrive Portable Hard Drive with you. You can connect the Portable Hard Drive to the laptop without worry. But you should check the power supply to the laptop whether it says 100V-240V. Then you are all set. Almost all laptop power supplies are equipped to work with both 110 and 220V range. Other wise you will have to get a travel adapter, which converts the 220V to 110V.

1tb Western Digital hard drive stopped working suddenly, no light


If the hard drive does not even turn on, then check its power supply. Maybe the power supply went bad; it should be a standard 12V 3.5A power supply.

Even if the power supply is working, chances are good that your data are still there, because the unit not turning on means that the internal enclosure, not the disk electronics, got messed up. It's unlikely that BOTH enclosure electronics AND disk electronics went south together, unless you got a lightning strike at short distance (less than 60 feet, say). You'll need to open the enclosure, extract the drive and connect it to another compatible enclosure (most USB/eSATA enclosures with the same EIDE or SATA connector as your WD will do) in order to override the fritzed enclosure electronics and connect directly to the hard disk. Once you do, your data will be there. If the disk crashed last time it turned on, maybe you'll need to run disk checker and expect to lose a file or two.

On the other hand, if the drive does turn on when powered, and the PC "just" doesn't see it, chances are proportionately bad for your data: you'll need to send the disk to a data recovery service, which can be quite costly.

500Gb SimpleTech Ext Drive No Power


Hello.
It sounds like you might have a problem with the power supply.
I have seen MANY external hard drives with failing power supplies. Take it to the store you purchased it from for a check up, it should still be under warrantee if its only 3 months old.
Good Luck!
