How to connect and install the drive
Please follow the steps below on how to physically connect your drive to your computer:
Step 1: Plug the power adapter into a wall outlet. You can try a power strip or UPS but if you have problems with the drive, try connecting it to a wall outlet.
Step 2: Connect the power plug into the back of the drive. It's okay if the drive powers on, then off, or if you see some lights come on for a brief second.
Step 3: Connect the USB cable directly into your computer (do not use a USB hub). If your drive has more than one port, only use one.
Step 4: Connect the other end of the USB cable into the external drive. The drive should then power on (you shouldn't need to use the power switch), if your computer is on, Windows should detect and install the native Windows drivers for your drive. If the drive is formatted for your computer system, it should show up in My Computer with a drive letter.
Please refer to your user manual for USB ports location (Pages 7 - 9)
