"Hard Drive (Gembird not detected on My PC"

I wasn't aware that Gembird made hard drives. They do make external floppy-drives and hard drive enclosures. So please supply more information about what type of device it is.

Ping is a poor way to test stuff. The 169 ip address is a bit odd. Generally for AIPA but not always.

Can we assume you are trying to access some Network drive? Does your computer also have a 169 type IP address?

Well, you would have problems with a 169.254.x.x address. These addresses are not meant to be used for normal IP connectivity. Sort out your networking first, then worry about the hard drive. Have a read of: http://ask-leo.com/why_cant_i_conne...
