Easyest way to proceed is buying an USB external hard drive, and using windows backup option, built in Windows from control panel to back up your HD on the external unit.

There is a compnay called "Easy Backup" they market a palm sized hard drive, my is 30GB, it connects via USB, it is easy to use and requires no additional sofware, they are cheap as well and reliable. I love it because of it's huge storage capacity. There are many companies that market these easy to use mini hard drives, if you check ebay they are availiable there as well.

    If you are running Windows XP go star menu then to All Programms open this list, then go to Accessories, then to System tools, in system tools you will see "Back Up listed, click that and follow the on screen instructions.

    In
    general, the safest choice is to back up your critical data to an
    external medium.
    Some popular options are CDs, USB Flash drives (i.e., a small removable
    drive that you connect to your computer using a USB port), and Zip
    disks. The option you use will depend upon a number of factors,
    including
    the amount of data you want to back
    up.



    • If
      you want to back up more than 250MB of data, you will, under most
      circumstances, need to back up the data to a CD (which typically
      has a 650MB capacity and may need to be formatted) or to a USB
      Flash drive that has the storage capacity you need (no formatting
      necessary).

    • If
      you want to back up less than 250MB of data and you have a Zip
      drive
      that will accomodate Zip disks that can store up to 250MB of
      data, you may want to use this option (no disk formatting necessary).

If you did not receive a driver disk with your Smartdisks when you purchased them than you do not need to install any drivers. However, depending on which windows operating system you are using, your smartdisks may not be compatible. What you should do is go online to the Verbatim website and see if your model is compatible with the operating system you are using.

I am unable to connect my USB Hard Drive Verbatim USB 250 JH 9519


Connect it to a different computer. If it still is not detected, then there is a hardware problem. Exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

How can i send pictures from windows photo gallery to verbatim?


When you connect the SmartDisk into the USB port of your computer, the computer will detect this as an external storage device. When you open this SmartDisk you can create folders to store your photos. Just select your photos from your computer where the photos are stored then copy and paste these photos into the folders on the SmastDisk.

A friend formated my Photobank PB40 and now It will not recieve the photos when I try to download them, what can I do


You cannot reformat using Windows or your card reader will not longer work. You need to use the Fat32 formatting tool. It's still available on the Verbatim website (They bought SmartDisk)
http://www.verbatim.com/support/support.cfm?open=Downloads
Select-Hardware Storage-Portable Drives. You should see a heading on the right for Downloads. Select the Verbatim Fat32 download tool. Download the tool. Connect your PhotoBank to your computer with the mini-USB cable and then run the Fat32 tool you just downloaded. Follow the prompts to reformat the PhotoBank. Your card reader and hard drive will be good as new.

My smartdisk external hard drive model JH7924 makes a skipping sound like it is trying to load but will not. My computer will not recognize the unit


This is known as the Click of Death. It means your hard drive is dead.

You can try to stick it in a freezer bag and freeze it for a few hours and then put it back in to your computer really quick so you can get your data.

This only works about 10% of the time though.
