    Thumbs down Problem with Ovation External Hard Disk (Seagate 120GB)

    Hi all,

    I recently bought an external hard disk from Comex 2007.

    The model and brand is OVATION 2.5" SEAGATE EXTERNAL HARDISK 120GB.

    Getting very furstrated as I cannot get it to work.

    1) There is no manual.
    2) The driver CD is full of files. I don know which one is the driver or manual or related files.
    3) When I plug in my office laptop, nothing happens? No pop up asking me to install driver, no detection in my computer. I even try plugging in 2 USB heads.
    4) When I plug into my home desktop, my computer hang straight away!
    5) When I try to plug into my dad's laptop, the laptopo auto restart!

    @__@

    I need help. Most likely will go back to the service center to bang table, but I will like to hear more opinions first before any possible "carrot-head" situations.....

    Do you need to connect power to your external hard disk?

    If I am not wrong, some laptop usb can't provide enough power to drive the hard disk. You try it on a desktop see how.

    There is a DC power slot, but the problem is I was not given a DC power adapter, they told me if no power just plug in the 2 USB head....
