Question about Aluratek AHDU350 USB 2.0 Hard Drive

1 Answer

Aluratek went away and won't show up

My Aluratek USB 2.0 External Hard drive (model AHDU350) does not show on my mac desktop. It did until I cleared my key board cache but that may not be why it suddenly disappeared because I also unplugged it and plugged it in again. I remember when I first got it I had a hard time getting it mounted and don't know how I succeeded except tried different cables.. And my mac is an old g4 that does not have a 2 .o usb -- only a 1.1 or something and yet it was working before. My maxtor mounts no problem. Thank you very much for any help.

I have the same problem with my Aluratek AHDDS100F Sata to usb 2.0 docking unit. It will only work now if I connect it via usb 1.1. I am using a Iomega usb 2.0 pci card.

How do I get everything from my external hard drive onto my Mac and then completely clear the ehd?


The problem you really face is a lack of space on the Mac. The movement of files from the Seagate to the Mac is easy. Plug in the drive and open it, then select the items you want to transfer from the Seagate and drag them to the location on the Mac where you want to store them. Job Done. When the files have all been transferred you just need to "Format" the external drive.

Sometimes you can remove the hard drive from the case and connect it to your computer. If it works, the interface/case it came in is dead. If it doesn't work, you may be able to have the data extracted by a specialist, but this is very expensive.
If the drive is still under warranty, you may want to decide if the data on the drive is worth opening the drive case and voiding your warranty.
Warranty usually means they replace, not repair the unit,

Charging


You don't need to charge is. The light turns green when in use - either to read or write something on it.

USB external hard drive does not show up on OS X desktop


You need to be sure that it is formatted as a FAT32 drive and not as a NTFS. When you are in Vista right click on the drive icon and click on properties. You will see NFTS or FAT32 under file system. Your drive must be FAT32 to be recognized by a Mac. Iomega.com has a FAT32 formatting software that you can download for free on your Vista PC and re-format the drive as a FAT32 drive.

If its 9.2 it may be because your mac is usb 1 and your external HDD is usb 2. It will recognize it but sometimes it takes longer to see the drive.
