Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

The 'in progress' probably means that the interface is 'broken', if that's all it does.


- try another USB cable if you can

- and certainly try another USB port, or all of them.

- and, try a different computer also, to see whether a different computer will work with the portable h/d.
