I don't think this model has a specific method to install and I am sure that this is a plug and play device. Plug in the other end of the usb cable to your Portable drive and then connect the other end of the cable to on of your computer's usb port. Do this while your computer is On. Wait for few seconds and you'll see that your computer has detected a new drive and will start installing it automatically. Once the installation is finished, you be notified that it installed and ready to use. Sometimes you'll also get a warning message to restart your computer to make the new hardware work correctly, even if you simply click "No", there won't be problem since it's a plug and play device. Open your My Computer and there you'll see a new Drive eg. Removable Drive. You can access it as you access the other drives/partitions on your computer.


Hope this helps..

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

    Well, it looks like there's another problem with your usb port or usb driver. Are there any other usb devices to your computer except that Hard drive? If so disconnect them and try again. I would also recommend you to reinstall or update your system. Actually it's not recommend to connect more than 4 usb devices at a time to a computer without using any usb hubs. But since you didn't mention any details, I can't make it specific at the moment.
    Please post back with more details if you need further help.

    Good Luck.

    Thanks for using FixYa.

The hard drive is plug and play, no software is required. All you have to do is plug the hard drive into a USB slot. If it doesn't work then you know the hard drive is bad and you would have to get another one.

You have what is call a USB POWER Y ADAPTER: this is designed to provide extra current to your USB HDD drive from a second PC USB port. Plug the end with two USB connectors to your PC/LAPTOP and the single-ended plug to your drive.
Hope it helps! Let me know how you go.

It is your driver related issue.
Check your operatign ssytem version is winxp sp2 ?
SP2 is perfact for usb 2.0
Also you can try to uninstall all usb driver and install inf update utility it is comes with motherbord disk.

HDD upgrade to extensa 6601 Wlmi.


The BIOS determine the maximum size hard drive that can be installed in the laptop. Put a smaller hard drive in the laptop say 120Gb hard drive, you will lose approx 10% in the formatting process.
Use the 180GB in another laptop or put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as a portable external hard drive.

Tryi8ng to install portable 120GB hard drive (seagate)


If your USB ports do not supply enough power (older computers) then the drive may fail to show up in My Computer.
The Seagate should have a special Y cable. There are two USB connectors on one end that must both plug into your computer - one for data and power - the other for power only. The other end of the cable has the mini USB which plugs into the Seagate.
