STOR. E partner HARD drive does not work with USB 2.0

Hi all

I recently purchased a 1 TB STOR. E partner HDD and it worked without any problems on my laptop Macbook Pro which has only USB 2.0 ports.

A few days ago, the HARD drive has been disconnected from the laptop without ejecting first, and now it isn't recognized more than my laptop.

I tried on a PC Windows with USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports and discovered that it is recognized when I plug in the port 3.0 but not on version 2.0.

What should I do to have the HARD drive works again with USB 2.0?

Many thanks in advance,

Stor.E partner HDD needs maximum power of my 900.
The USB 2.0 port provides 500mA just
If you can connect the HARD drive to two USB 2.0 ports using a USB cable in Y
Or another option: connect a USB hub with external power supply between the HARD drive and the USB 2.0 port

  • Canvio Plus 2.5 "1 TB external HARD drive does not work with USB 3.0

    I've had this drive for about a month.

    I am on Windows 7

    I can only operate by connecting to USB 2.0 ports. It is then visible in 'My Computer'.

    If I connect to USB 3.0, it turns on the case but does not appear in 'My Computer'.

    I tried it on all my USB ports 3.0 - up on one and two in the back of my case.

    I checked my BIOS and USB 3.0 is enabled.

    I tried to follow the suggestions in the user manual, but the drive does not appear in the management of so connected devices on USB 3.0, but it does when connected in USB 2.0.

    Any ideas?


    As much as I know the Windows 7 system requires installation of additional USB 3.0 driver.

    Many laptops and computers use USB 3.0 driver that was released by Intel... it is because of Intel chipset...

    I guess that USB 3.0 is already installed, but probably you need to update the driver at least to the newest version...

  • External Combo CD-RW/DVD-ROM drive does not work with USB 1.1

    Hello world

    I have a problem with the PA3352E - 2 CD 2 CD-RW/DVD COMBO USB 2.0. A colleague is owner of this car and use it on a NB DellC610 with Windows XP on it. The problem is that the drive does not work with this type of nb (with a NB from Fujitsu-Siemens newest there no problems); There is always an error message about "surge." I think it has to do with the USB 1.1 because the player seems to be built for USB2.0. Is it possible to use this drive correctly with usb1.1 (ok, the flow is low, but more important is it works in general)? Unfortunately his nb will not work with USB 2.0...

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Kind regards

    AFAIK this external must have a power adapter. You use it too? I'm not 100% sure, but there are difference how much power Gets the USB slot. Toshiba notebooks is around 500 my and some producers another laptops send between 300 and 500 my. The external device requires approximately 700 my.

  • External USB 3.0 HARD drive does not work on USB 3.0 port

    Hello guys,.

    I have a problem with my external HARD drive and the problem is that it is USB 3.0 feature does not work in my computer.

    The curious thing is that it works very well in the SATA port or a normal USB 2.0 port.

    Y at - it a failure with the HARD drive or is there something wrong with my motherboard (M5A99 fx pro r2.0)?

    Thanks in advance.

    From my point of view of the few is not HARD drive problem because the HARD drive operates in a USB 2.0 port.

    I m wondering if you tried to update the USB 3.0 driver.
    Have you tried this HARD disk in another computer / USB 3.0 ports?
    I think that its worth a check.

    Also, I read on some problems of USB 3.0 controller from different manufacturers.
    Sometimes, it might be possible that some problems of compatibility between different devices may arise.

  • TOSHIBA external hard drive does not work with Mac

    Finally, I used my Toshiba external hard drive on my MacBook Pro in December. I want to keep all my photos, and I've always been able to add new photos to it and delete the 'old' out of it. I plugged it today to add more photos, and it is not letting me. I went to the sharing & preferences and he read that when he used to say, read and write. I went to the info, and I noticed, it says that the format is Windows. Why he did change and why can't I use it? Can I fix it? Thanks in advance

    Looks like you have formatted the NTFS drive that is read-only for OS X. Copy data to another drive, then partition and format the drive correctly for use on a Mac.

    Hi YouMaCry,

    You have any records? or a USB recovery?

    If you cannot install an OS on your SSHD your SSHD can be defective, because it is reading it is cluster/bad sectors. A defective HDD/SSD/SSHD can still be detected (sometimes even when it is defective).

    To be sure contact Lenovo Support Center and ask them to send you your SSHD/unit in a get fully tested Lenovo the SSHD repair depot - and have defective parts repaired within a reasonable time!

    By using the external drive recently and the USB cable is removed accidentally. After attempting to connect the USB on my Mac again once the external HARD drive does not appear in the Finder.

    Passing through the disk utility, the hard drive is visible, but I am unable to check or repair the disk.

    The message I get is

    The same problem. I bought edition 2015 last fall. It has a power supply problem (electrical problems). I thought it's because of my laptop. He made her crazy, but SMART was ok. Yesterday, it makes noises again and now it does not work. I saw light blue and only a little sound of pcb as start start. I saw that head of player on the Board.
    It's really a defection from the factory.

  • External hard drive does not work properly

    Hi all

    It is a slightly different external HARD drive problem.  I had my faithful media ATMT bin since my first laptop with XP (2003) and I bought it in 2005.  It's a little wobbly as the fan vibrates a lot, but this isn't a problem.  What is the problem, is that I have a windows machine 7 who thinks that drive a need to put in shape, but my previous laptop which has vista on it was absolutely no problem to read the files IN ALL and you can open one of them without a hitch.  I tried to run CHKDSK I:\I (it is labeled as the I drive :) and 7 claims that it is in the format RAW.  I had a look at CHKDSK on my old machine and it is in FAT32, I since changed it to NTFS, but seems to have no effect.  I also tried the hunting of the drivers for the external hard drive, but I come only through links to Amazon as these things are always available.

    I really need to access this drive on my current computer as the older one needs a considerable cooling method to make it work therefore the latest machine.  What I also don't understand, it's that it was working absolutely fine on this machine too until quite recently.  He worked on it that I need, but have not been accessed for a while and so solutions in this regard would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you very much for your time.


    Your drive has reached its copy by date and it works on time taken (if he is stil)

    If this does not work on another PC then it's probably dead.

    You can try the utility disk SeaTools from Seagate to check and see if it can detect and report on the drive

    You are the very welcome.

    It does not sound like a heat problem.

    I don't know a lot about the repair of hardware issues beyond replacement memory and hard drives.

    I could try to clean the area of fan/radiator with a can of compressed air and see if that clears any dust that may accumulate.

    To do this, disconnect the laptop from the AC adapter and remove the battery.

    Insert a rod through the air fan to keep the blades turning when you spray air.

    Spray through the air intake fan and watch to see the dust out of the exhaust.

    Repeat once or twice and blow air from the other direction of the drain line to the fan.

    The other driver, you need is the driver of protection Protectsmart hard.

    See if it works.

  • Satellite M30x - new HARD drive does not work


    I am installing a new ATA 2.5 "internal hard drive for my Toshiba M30X-166. The drive is a Seagate Momentus 5400.3 120 GB model. The laptop does not recognize the disc and no related error message appears, and in the BIOS, it shows as "HD not available."

    I put this drive in an external USB - IDE enclosure and was detected by my desktop PC, and I was able to partition and format the Momentus, so I know the drive is indeed work, but my M30X still does not detect the drive.

    What can I do to make the laptop recognize this unit? The BIOS M30X is: Phoenix EAL20 version 1.90.

    Thanks for your help.


    Have you tried another HARD drive? The new HARD drive is may not compatible with the laptop or does work does not correctly.

    Normally, a 120 GB HARD drive should work because the laptop has a limitation of LBA 28 bits and so you can only use hard drives 120 GB.
    In the worst cases, the HARD disk on the motherboard controller is defective :(
