SimpleSave 2tb won't turn on properly.

I have a SimpleSave 2 tb External Hard Drive  usb 2.0 hp md 2000h model HPBAAD0020HBK-AHSN. Every time I plug it in the light on the front will blink then turn back off not even initialising a connection made on the PC. I think maybe the problem is the fact that the power adapter does not plug in the socket properly but it may be more than that.


Sorry if i've post in the wrong board (i'm new Smiley Tongue)

Re: SimpleSave 2tb won't turn on properly.

Hello MistyShadow,

If the light is turning on and then right back off it sounds like it's not getting proper power. Your assumption of the power supply may be right. Do you have another power supply to test with?
