Customer Question
Hi. Have a Simpletech...
Hi. Have a Simpletech 160gb HD but no power supply. What is the appropriate power supply, can I purchase on line?
Also, HD is lit but doesn't appear on my desktop. Do I need a driver? and will the HD work on usb power alone?

Hi,
WELCOME TO JUST ANSWER!! My name isXXXXX will assist you to solve or identify your problem.

Is it a new hard drive?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
No, it is a recording studio session archive.
Mac Support Specialist: sudipto_dutta, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 8 years ago
That means you have used it earlier with the MAC?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
no. I have never used it. It is an archival drive from a client (who got it from another studio) who didn't know what to do with it...
Mac Support Specialist: sudipto_dutta, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 8 years ago
As it seems to be a driver issue I will forward this question to MAC experts.

Thanks

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
