Windows 7: PC won't power on OCZ PSU help ><

03 Nov 2010   #41

Win 7 64bit

The drives were new, not banging around or damage. These are western digital passports so it's not an enclosure with a standard 2.5 or 3.5 hdd in it.

I have tried the drives on various Windows PC's and a mac. They do not show up. Literally after inputting into the computer I made above they stopped working.

When first plugging them in have you gone into the Disk Management tool to right click on the volumes detected to bring up the New Volume wizard at all? Each time you plug in any new drive even if already partitioned and formatted the new drive wizard has to be used.

If you are not able to initialize any of them which sounds a bit odd to start with you would then suspect having failed drives or possible bad usb ports simply not providing the current they should be seeing. If you find the ports are having that problem then adding on a hub to provide the power level requirement would be the option for using them on that particular system.

The Passports drives are still the WD Green Power series whether 2.5" or 3.5" which is their energy saving model series. Typically that simply means good for storage but still found reliable in most cases. Try assigning a drive letter once you plug them in while booted in Windows for the fresh detection to see how that goes.

Shut down computer, remove all power sources, hold down power button
Why does shutting down the computer, removing the AC Adapter, removing the battery (if it is a laptop), and holding down the power button for 30 seconds fix problems in one's computer.
