Hi ludovicungur,


If your device is blinking fast then it means the problem could be that your are using an incorrect mode of connection for e.g. a USB extension cord , or a USB hub to connect your external HDD.

I would suggests you to remove any external cable or USB hub and then connect the hdd directly to the port on *********** board ,if possible try changing ports and it should work.

Hope this helps ..:)

My laptop doesn't recognize my 80gb harddisk. The light goes on but it down't show in My Computer or anything. What can I do?


Follow the steps given below to refresh USB ports.

1. Right-click My Computer icon on the desktop, and then select Properties.
2. Click the Hardware tab.
3. Click the Device Manager button.
4. Click the plus (+) sign to the left of Universal Serial Bus controllers.
5. Right-click the device listed under Universal Serial Bus controller and select Uninstall.
6. Click OK to confirm the removal of the device.

Please note, repeat Steps 5 and 6 until all the devices under Universal Serial Bus Controller are removed.

7. Shut down the computer.

CAUTION: Ensure that the Shut Down option is selected, instead of the Restart option.

8. Wait for 5 seconds and then restart the computer. When the computer restarts, a "Windows has detected new or added hardware" message window will open.

The above steps will refresh the USB ports.

Now connect the USB devices like mouse, video camera, your external usb hard disk...usb hubs...whatever you like and the drivers should install automatically.

Tip: It is always recommended to connect the main usb devices at the rear end usb port, as they require more power to initiate.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Western Digital External HDD not appearing in My Computer


It could be that the OS is not assigning a drive letter to your removable drive. To do this, go to disk management and assign one.

Assuming OS is Win 2000/XP/Vista

Right-click My Computer then Manage
Click on Disk Management
Right-click the removable drive and click on Change Drive Letter
Assign a drive letter and click OK
Your drive should now show up on My Computer

Hope this helps.

What you have to do is this: 1) The HDD Detection tool Connect the device to the PC, load up Musicmatch. On the left click "Portable Device" tab, wait for the PC to show your device. The device should show as "Philips GoGear" if it's showing as "Philips Nike" go to "Tools" on the right, click "Settings" click drop-down menu & choose GoGear. You need to do this everytime you transfer files. If that doesn't work, you need to do this: 2) Manual Re-Install You can re-install the player manually by doing this : - connect the player to your pc by USB cable - uninstall all Installed software for the player - remove device from Windows Device Manager : - Desktop - right click on "My Computer" - select Properties from the menu a new windows appears: System Properties - click on the tab "Hardware" - click on "Device Manager" a new window appears" The Device Manager navigate to the player (should be shown as Philips Nike) at the USB Devices - right click on the player - select "un-install" from the menu - Windows will unsinstall the device - If the player is not listed, the device has been deleted Now to edit the Windows Registry: (Note: Mistakes cannot be un-done so be VERY careful) 1. Disconnect all usb devices. 2. Go to the registry (Start -> Run -> type "regedit") 3. Make a backup of the registry -click "file" -click "export" -Search/Create a logical location ("C:\REGBACKUP" for example) -choose a filename ("registry backup Date.reg" for example) -Please pay attention if Export range is set to "All" -click on save 4. Click on the + infront of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -Click the + of SYSTEM -Click the + of CurrentControlSet -Click the + of Enum -Click the + of USB Here you can remove all VID``s -Before you remove the VID you have to set the right permissions, this can be done as follows: Right click on the folder USB and click on "Permissions", select in the window that pops-up Everyone and and select "Full control" at the permissions. 5. Reboot PC without ANY USB devices connected - install the software and plugins - connect the device to your pc by usb Check if device works and if still showing as "Philips Nike" try the first step again. Hope this helps, Weedy
