  • Summary: I originally purchased for use with my computer for backup purposes.Worked great for that. I then have since tried to use with my dish sat service to move DVR records to it. Not sure if it is this drive or something with my Dish hopper but after moving some DVR recordings to the drive I am now getting error messages and Movies will now not transfer.

Toshiba Canvio 3.0 500GB

Hokus, Staples
24 July 2014
  • Excerpt: "This is a very easy unit to set up and run. I'm using Windows 7 and it set up o.k. Nice and compact so it doesn't hog up a lot of desktop space. I bought two of them. One I store my files on and the other one backs up the first one. When I did my first back up it took a total of 10 and 1/2 hours to back up 250 GB's of data. So.....that was all day!

Not Easily Compatible With Mavericks

Mike, B&H Photo
14 July 2014
  • Excerpt: No issues with plug and play with Microsoft Windows 8 or Apple Lion 10.7.5 but not so easy with Apple Mavericks 10.9.4. I gave up trying to run this Toshiba drive on my iMac Mavericks computer but then again I bought it to use with the Mac Book Pro - Lion 10.7.5 anyway. I imagine there is a way to reformat it using Apple's Disk Utility but that just seems like an unnecessary chore not to mention the time and effort I spent before I discovered the solution.
  • Pros: Compact

  • Summary: I bought this product online and was a great deal. However when I started to use it, it made a clicking noise. So I took it back.

Not as good as a Passport

sbj, Staples
11 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Recently purchased this at Staples and the salesperson informed me I had to buy one either for a Mac or a PC. That's a pain to begin with...why? Anyway, got it home and couldn't get it to work. Installed the software and still no go. I finally figured out that you had to create a folder to save anything on it. Not intuitive. I would buy the Passport next time and take my chances.

Sometimes not recognized

Art, Staples

  • Excerpt: The disk drive has a sleep mode and sometimes, it is not recognized by the operating system. This is a nuisance and annoying. Eventually, it starts to work again.
