Question about SimpleTech Pininfarina 80GB External USB 2.0 SP-UE25/80 (SPUE2580) Hard Drive

1 Answer

Saving my music

I purchased a SimpleTech 80GB about 6 months ago. I have tried to save my music on to it and just plug it in and play my music back. I have a problem with my music not coming up and it says Windows Media Player cannot find the file. If you are trying to play, burn, or sync an item that is in your library, the item might point to a file that has been moved, renamed, or deleted. All I want is to just save my music and photos onto the SimpleTech 80GB and play my music without having to restore all of the music back onto my laptop.

Windows media player is probably right because you have moved the music to another location. You might need to rebuild the library.

Use Windows Explorer to check that the music is on the new drive.

Can I also recommend downloading Winamp to play your music, It's free, sounds better and doesn't spy on you!

6) If two lights of capacity 80W replaced by 20W, which run for 6 hours per day. What will be energy savings per month (30 days) in KW/hr?

For the 80W bulbs you'll be using 2 x 80 x 6 x 30 = 28800 W/hr = 28.8kW/hr.

For the 20W bulbs, it's 2 x 40 x 6 x 30 = 7200 W/hr =7.2 kW/hr.

The monthly saving is 21.6 kW/hrs, a saving of 75%.

When the laptop starts up press function key F2. You need to do this before the Windows logo appears.

You should be in the BIOS. Locate the Energy Setting and disable it. Once Windows loads, go to the Control Panel, click PowerOptions, and turn off energy saving when computer is plugged in.

I have my simple tech set to back up personal docs every day. This works fine. However, when I attempt to back up the entire HD to SimpleTech, it begins ok then stops before completed. One time it stopped...

Double check all the power options on your PC to make sure it is not set to go to sleep or hibernate or any other process that may interrupt the backup itself.

Also make sure there is enough space to back up to.

Make sure that the interface you use to connect also has any power saving turned off.

Many devices have the option of going to sleep or turning off to save power and you would need to check the full properties of your usb or firewire card to check that.

Make sure your antivirus or any other application is not set to scan or run during the same time interval as your backup

when you have checked all that you may find that it now works as it should. has some useful info as does

Not playing new tracks loaded onto mp3 from pc

You may have a bad sector on the HDD where those files has been saved. Please check my other fix responses to be able to format your HDD and reinstall the firmware version 2.1 which is the latest one right now. I recommend after the HDD formatted do a disk repaire using Windows. Keep it mind you will lose all the contents and plugins from loaded to the device you need to decide which one is more important saving the Archos or losing the contends. If you be play it safe i'd say send it to archos and have them replace the HDD it costs about 150-170 $ but they will be able to put your plugins back in. and you will have 3 months warrant on their fix.

Simpletech pininfarina problem

It appears that this is happening a lot with external drives. Inside most of them is just a regular internal drive. In my case I simply removed the drive from the external enclosure (a SimpleTech 160 Gig) and installed it in my PC, where it works like a charm. Most people who have this problem go out and buy a replacement generic external drive enclosure for about $30.00.
