Hitachi LifeStudio 250GB Drive with Windows 7 Pro


In Windows 7 Pro: Before starting, make sure you are connected to the internet as Windows 7 might have to find the driver(s) online. Plug in to a USB 2.0 or 1.0 port (3.0 won't work) and let Windows find the drivers. Two autoplay windows will pop up. Close the larger autoplay window with the heading LIFESTUDIO. In the other smaller autoplay window, click on Start LifeStudio Now. A window will open up, click on Install LifeStudio. Follow the directions. You are ready.

Windows ??? or other Distro .

More than likely the software is available at Hitachi's website, so check there or give them a call if you cannot find it through the website. They may be able to email the software to you or provide the link by email. If the software is licensed in some fashion, they may ask for the serial number of your external hard drive, so you might want to have that handy just in case.

Formatting will erase everything on that drive. If you can accept loosing that, do the format and see if it works. If it does not fix it, you need a data recovery expert. Few computer professionals can do that kind of work.

If you PC does not see the drive (assuming the PC has all the required USB drivers), then, 1 check and or subsitute the USB cable. 2. check the power supply/wall wart for correct power. 3. check the USB plug on the PC, try a different one if equiped. 4. the USB interface card in the external case may be toast. You will need to check or sub the interface to ensure that's not the issue. 5. place the drive in a different case with a different USB interface.

Backup it immediately if you want your files. The next step is a total faillure of HD

First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps. If you don't like the letter Windows has assigned to a new drive or you want to organize your drive letters in a certain way, you can change the drive letter. You can assign the letters C through Z to each drive on your computer. A and B are usually reserved for floppy disk drives, but if your computer does not have floppy disk drives, you can assign A and B to volumes. You can see which drive letters are used on your computer by opening Computer. Open Computer Management by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, clicking Administrative Tools, and then double-clicking Computer Management. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation In the Navigation pane, click Disk Management Right-click the partition or drive that you want to change, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths. Do one of the following To assign a drive letter if one has not already been assigned, click Add, click the letter that you want to use, and then click OK To remove a drive letter, click Remove, and then click Yes to confirm that you want to remove it. You might need to do some diagnostics to find out what is wrong. If you have nothing to lose, format the machine.

Double-click setup.exe to run the installation locally. If the scenarios above are not related to or did not resolve this issue, the error might be caused by something specific to your computer.

Try connecting the external hard drive to another computer to recover/backup your data.
When you have such a large capacity hard drive, it pays to have a second large capacity hard drive to backup your data in the event of the other hard drive dying.Hard drives do fail especially if you accidently drop it.

Connect the external hard drive to the host computer.

This connection is most commonly made with a USB-style connector.


However, eSATA connectors are becoming more prevalent in the general computing market.

Plug the external hard drive into an electrical power source.



Navigate to the external hard drive listing under the "My Computer" window.

This is opened by double-clicking the "Computer" or "My Computer" desktop icon.


Double-click the external hard drive drive icon listing and navigate to the files to be copied using the provided navigation window.


Right-click the files to be transferred and select the "Copy" heading from the context menu.

Navigate to the destination folder on the host computers hard drive using the same navigation window.


Right-click within the folder and select the "Paste" option.

This begins the process of transferring the files to the computers hard drive.


This process takes several minutes to several hours, depending on the size of the files and the speeds of the hard drives.


A progress bar will appear to keep the user informed of the process completion status.


hope this helps

Why not just pull it out instead of clicking on safely remove hardware? Try it and see if it works. Sounds like your usb drive is not windows 7 compatible. Or windows 7 has some driver issue which is not uncommon.
