Their error message tells you instead to check your internet or firewall settings and try again.

After working via telephone with a tech, I was authorized to return it to Verbatim for repair.

So this is Verbatim's new hard drive design. I believe that it's a step BACK from previous models. Previous models were aluminum frame and this new design is plastic. Previous models had rubber feet on the bottom and the new design has no feet at all. Still has the very short USB cable and the AC adapter cable length has gotten shorter as well. Good thing it still uses the same 12V 1.5A adapter as previous models so I can use them instead.

Fortunately it still has a Samsung hard drive internally. It's the Samsung HD204UI model, known for running cool and very quiet, as well as being the most reliable drive on the market.

The front LED is beaming blue compared to yellow on previous models. It also has a switch for powering on and off as opposed to a button. The vents are on the sides now. Previous model had vents on the bottom. So it should always run fairly cool even after hours of use.

Overall, I'm happy with this drive but not sure why Verbatim took a step back with the quality of the enclosure. They still back their product with a 7 year warranty and no other manufacturer can top that. This is my 7th Verbatim drive purchase and I will continue to buy them.

Size Name: 1 TB Verified Purchase
I love this product and the USB 3.0 is much faster than 2.0. The reason I bought this was to transfer everything from my older external HD to a new one. External HDs do not last forever, that is why I do not recommend ever buying over 1TB unless you are a music or film major in school. If so, I would recommend 2TB or more. This product has a short (about 1.5 ft.) usb cord. I would recommend purchasing a 6ft USB 3.0 cord along with this product. Amazon sells them with free 2day shipping if you are a student.YES, s I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO A FRIEND.

The real test of a product comes when it fails!

We had a problem with this drive after some months of use - it was no longer recognized by Windows 7 machines. We emailed support and they got back to us very promptly. When their solution didn't work, they quickly provided a replacement drive. I was impressed - their 7 year warranty means something!

Before we begin, check the review (re the 3 TB model) by CambyPCWizard right here at Amazon. I quote:

“It only gives you 2tb of empty space. It has 2 partitions that you can not do anything with. Wait for the 4tb”

Indeed, perhaps 80% of the hapless PC’ers who buy the 3 TB model (without reading my review) will believe the drive is screwed up. Too bad everyone at Verbatim is a Mensa and cannot bother to write a decent quick-start user manual. Verbatim will receive a lot of returns of the 3 TB model when the only thing defective is the user manual.

This is a combined review of these two models:
Verbatim 3 TB Store n Save 97581 external USB 3.0 Hard Drive
Verbatim 2 TB Store n Save 95780 external USB 3.0 Hard Drive

These hard drives have a few special features: on-off switch, Green Button software, excellent warranty, free back-up software, and cooling slots.

Use the on-off switch to power off the drive when you do not need it (be sure to remove hardware using Windows so you don’t lose any data not yet written to disk). Many external USB hard drives do not feature an on-off switch. Green Button software is advanced power management to reduce power usage during times when your external HD is powered on but not being used. Most external USB hard drives have some method of reducing power usage when the drive is not accessed for an extended period (ask each manufacturer what their approach is).

Both of these models cool well with appropriately placed cooling slots. It is absolutely amazing how many other brands of external hard drives are sealed boxes with no cooling slots or they have cooling slots ON THE BOTTOM (heat is trapped as it rises).

Size Name: 2 TB Verified Purchase
My main concerns when I purchased this drive were: Durability, price per storage amount, and ease of use. I bought this to serve as my 3rd redundant backup for videos and pictures of my daughter, so durability is important to me and it is too soon to tell how this device measures just yet. I have had it for ~3 months with no hard drive failures yet -I will revise my review in another couple of years.
Did not like the backup software that came embedded in it, especially since it ate some storage space. If you prefer a simple "drag and drop" harddrive with no embedded software, try the Maxell Gen HD (which I also purchased).
Case is plastic but sturdy, does not need a stand to help prop it vertically. Overall, I would buy again.

I bought this drive to tear apart and use the Samsung drive that others had mentioned in their reviews.

Unfortunately, I opened it to find that it contained a Seagate Barracuda Green drive instead of the Samsung.

Not to say that the Seagate is a bad drive, and I'm sure it'll be fine, but I was after the Samsung.

The case was nearly impossible to disassemble without breaking it in some way. The case appears to still be usable, but isn't very pretty anymore.

I'll still rate it at 4 stars because the Seagate is a good drive, and I'm sure the enclosure would have made a great external drive. It actually looks much better in person than in the pictures.
