Hi guys, I have samsung s2 ultra portable hard disk drive and this the first ever hard disk I'm gonna manage myself as I don't have any idea about it.The hard disk drive is a quality one as we can say just by taking a look at it and everything is great written about it on web but the only problem I found is it does not install automatically we have to do it manually anybody can please help me by guiding how to do it.
Why Samsung S2 ultra portable harddisk drive doesn’t install automatically?
Yes, of course. The manual installation of an external hard drive doesn’t only happen with the Samsung S2 USB 2.0 1 TB Ultraslim Portable hard drive but with any other external hard drive like with my sister’s Western Digital external hard drive. The manual installation is required because these are new products and Windows doesn’t have a driver for it.
You can only port a device on the computer without manually installing it if Windows has a driver for it. But even if an external hard drive requires manual installation, the installation itself is very easy to do. It’s just like installing a program to the computer. When installing the external hard drive to your machine, you don’t need to find the driver somewhere else because it already includes a driver.
Normally, an external hard drive has a built-in virtual drive that contains the installation files and the driver. You only need to run the installer to install the external hard drive. In your case, to install the Samsung S2 USB 2.0 1 TB Ultraslim Portable hard disk, connect the hard drive to your computer using the USB cable that came with it.
Your operating system will detect the new device and will prompt you to install the new drive. When a prompt appears asking you to install the new device, install the device and follow the instructions. After the installation, just configure the Samsung S2 software according to your needs. After that, every time you connect the Samsung S2 portable hard drive to your computer, the Samsung S2 drive software will automatically start.
