Simpletech 250gb hard drive

Hi, I recently bought a simpletech 250gb portable hard drive. I moved all of my music onto it and have been using it fine for a few weeks now. Today I plugged it in and opened Itunes. After clicking to play a song, Itunes said it couldn't find it. I tried to manually locate it, but it's not there. The drive pops up like normal when I plug it in, and lists each of the albums, but when I click to view the tracks in the albums, there is nothing there. Already tried it on my desktop, and same thing. The albums show up, but no song tracks are found. I've been searching for someone who's had this problem, but I couldn't find anything. Help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have the same problem. Each time that I power up my computer, I have to turn the HD off and on again for it to be found by my computer. It is plugged into a 2.0 usb port. I am not sure why this is happening.

Can you access the music with windows media player? If you can, itunes is corrupted as you moved the music to a new drive and itunes will only look for it in the itunes folder it sets up. Best option is reinstall itunes and it will find your music on the new drive.

I've met space limit for my SimpleTech external drive even though my internal drive still has space and both are 250 GB. Are there SimpleTech programs taking up space and if so how much of that 250 GB...


Your internal drive is different than your external drive. If you put more files onto your SimpleTech drive, then that one is going to fill up faster. The best thing to do would be to go through your SimpleTech drive and delete anything that you don't need. I don't remember my SimpleTech drive coming with any software on the drive, but if it did, it didn't take up much space.

SimpleTech 250GB External Hard Drive can not be accessed


Hi Blakelynefit;

All my not be lost. You've a lot of really great freeware options for file recovery if you're running Windows. Notable apps include Undelete Plus , PC Inspector File Recovery , and Restoration. Undelete Plus is the most user-friendly option of the bunch, with advanced filtering options that make it easy to find your needle of a file among the haystack of deleted garbage, but in my tests I found both Restoration and PC Inspector File Recovery to be more effective at recovering files. (Of course, your mileage may vary.) As an added bonus, the bare bones Restoration is portable, which makes it an excellent addition to a thumb drive or external SimpleTech 250GB Drive.
UPDATE: Per several readers advice, you may also want to check out Recuva another freeware Windows file recovery tool.

Good Luck,

Mark

SimpleTech 80 GB Portable HD Won't Read


It sounds like a problem with the board inside the case,- the actual hard drive is probably OK. Opening the case will void any warranty but there may not be much left anyway. There should be 4 screws in the bottom of the drive,- front 2 may be hidden under a sticker. Try installing the drive in your new case or an empty drive bay inside your computer. I have had external hard drive cases fail before and the actual hard drive was ok.

PLEASE HELP


It is just like any other disc drive. You can set up folders to store your music. You can store music, files, videos, whatever you'd like.
It should be assigned a drive letter like d: e: or f: You can simply copy your music files to it.

Be more specific as to to how you are trying to use the Simpletech drive to store music.
