Hi Buddy,
i,ve got some great repair disks, which may be able to repair this. i also have leads to connect it to different devices.
I,ll look at the drive for a cost Of £20 G.B.P plus postage return costs. If it,s unrepairable. then you will be charged no-more.
if it,s fixable that will be included with the price.
Thankyou for your enquiry.

Mike @ Compurepair.

The usb external hard drive was designed to work with windows operational system giving access to all the files, attaching the hardware would give limited use at best and may not respond.

A computer that is running Windows XP cannot detect a USB flash drive, an Apple iPod, or an external hard disk drive

It sounds as though your issue is one of in adequate power. Do both the external HDD have their own power source, or are they powered through USB? if they are powered through USB it may be that as soon as the second drive spins up to transfer the files, it overwhelms the limited power of the laptop. You can try it with the laptop plugged in (though this may not provide it with more power than the battery) or by purchasing a usb hub with its own external power source so that it is not drawing power from the laptop, or purchase an external hard drive with its own power source
The other option is simpler and free, and its to copy the files first to your laptops own HDD, then unplug the source external hard drive, and then plug in the drive you want to copy to, then transfer the files from your laptops hard drive. This will of course take twice as long, but will cost you nothing.

Cannot get computer to recognize my simpletech external hard drive. I have windows 7


A problem I commonly have is if the external drive is plugged in to a non powered usb hub the unit does not have enough power and will not be recognised, ensure it is plugged directly into the pc tower or if you have a laptop try an alternate usb port as some may not be powered.

Click on the link below and then click on the "Fixit" button. Windows has a patch for all external devices not recognized by PC's including HD's. This is especially an issue for those who've recently installed SP3. Best of luck with your problem.
