SimpleSave hp md1500h

HP Recommended
SimpleSave portable hard drive
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

After formatting my SimpleSave md1500h It appears that I cannot download a driver for this hard drive. In the past I've had fantastic support from HP with my printers and laptop. Can you please help me find and download the applicable driver for the model of portable drive?

Part No. HPBAAD0015HBK-01

Serial No.. [Personal Information Removed]

Thanking you in advance for your capable assistance.  Best Regards   Eric Budworth

@Cheeky_Bud7 , welcome to the Community.

 

The information that I found on your drive shows that it was released in 2010.  HP doesn't provide software and drivers for components over 5 years old.

 

Here is a thread from 2014 that has a link to the software on Smashbrothax  Google drive: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebooks-Archive-Read-Only/Software-for-the-HP-SimpleSave-md1000h-Ext...

 

Just click on the link in his post.  You can try to download and install it, but I can't guaranty that it will work with Win 10.

Hi Old_geekster,

Thank you so much for your reply to my query. I managed to find the drivers after a search on Google and Ithey managed to solve to problem. I didn't realise that by formatting the SimpleSave hard driveit would erase the driver files as there wasn't any warning this would happen!

At least I now know not to format but delete all files another way.

Thank you so much for your advice anyway it was very thought full.
