    I recently bought the above named product, which worked great until the other day when for some unknown reason, the drive was more on the function of my computer.

    I followed the troubleshooting tips/FAQ and this has not solved the problem. The computer recognizes that the hard drive is there, as it appears on the list of devices USB/material and under removable storage in the computer Mgt (when you right-click on my computer and select Manage), but I couldn't go in the Councils of troubleshooting/FAQ that the drive is not accessible.

    I fear that all my music (recently transferred to it) is lost forever.

    Please, someone tell me I'm wrong. Any ideas people?

    Thank you

    If all goes well it of not a hardware problem.

  • USB driver is not support for HP Deskjet 1050 j410a.

    My HP Deskjet 1050 j410a is installed on a windows 7 and show a code 37 error message which means usb driver is not supported. I had reinstalled so many times and also restarted the pc but the problem does not resolve itself. kindly help me to solve this problem.


    Make sure you first upgrade the driver by uninstalling the HP software and install the latest version below:

    If the same continues to try to plug the USB key into a different port on the PC and check any change.

    Then try another device (for example, the disk on the key) and check if you can see a similar behavior, if so the problem may be with your PC Chipset problem.

    If the issue appears only on the Deskjet 1050 and no step has not resolve the problem, try an another USB cable from the printer and check any change.


  • I have Win7 64 bit ultimate and from time to time when I start PC my card reader drives do not appear in my computer.

    I have Win7 64 bit ultimate and from time to time when I start PC my card reader drives do not appear in my computer. Device Manager indicates that they are working correctly. Sometimes my dvd drives disappear. I have to do a system restore to solve this problem. For some reason any Win7 has problems with storage devices. How to stop these dissappearing from my Computer(or not getting a drive letter assigned) storage devices?  It's very frustrating. And, System Restore is not a way to solve this problem, it's just a quick fix. I have three internal hard disks, three hard drives, card reader external drives, USB keys, disks, etc. I need a way to solve this problem when it happens. So far, happened about 9 times in the last six weeks since I installed Win7 64 bit ATU.

    There may be an update of the motherboard BIOS to solve the problem.

    Otherwise, as your card readers are no doubt attached via USB the usual way to solve this problem would be to uninstall the drives and the USB controllers and devices in the system restore.

  • My Macbook Pro gives me a message saying: external drive is not readable by this computer. But he worked What can I do?

    I tried to move my music and my pictures of my Macbook Pro 2012 to other Macbook Pro 2009, but the older one is absolutely remained stuck. So I unplugged. Now, it will not be read by Macs, and give me a message, the external drive is not readable by this computer. Both are running on the same iTunes updated and Maverick. What can I do to recover thousands of photos and CD?

    The disc in particular is either corrupted or has failed.   If you don't have a backup, you find yourself working with a data recovery service, which will not come cheap, and they don't guarantee any results - to try to shoot everything that is left behind.   Reformatting the drive - if it has corrupted and not failed - could bring the disk itself to the utility, but that won't help with any data on the disk.
