Do you get the audible feedback that a USB device has been plugged in? If yes, the what may be happening is that the drive has no valid partition information and so windows cannot see it. go to Control panel>administrative tools?>computer management>disk management and see if the drive shows there. If the drive does not have a valid formatting you will likely get a warning that the drive does not contain valid information and needs to be formatted. If you believe that there there is information on the drive, do not formatter or say ok, unplug the drive and seek further help.
It's definitely not Win7. The Operating system has nothing to do with it. You'd need to isolate the issue first. It should be just a plug and play device like a usb flash drive.
Try plugging the HDD to another computer. If it works, then it's a problem with the computer. If it doesn't, then you can focus on the HDD itself.
You can also try the following steps: - Try turning the computer on while the USB HDD is plugged to see if it's going to be detected. Plug it directly to the usb port and not thru a hub or extended usb cord. - Go to the device manager and remove all of the USB host controller under USB controller, which is usually the last controllers located below. Then follow the step above.
There are other things that you can do to check it but try the steps above first and let me know what happens before we go further.
I assume the computer recognizes a mass storage device on USB is plugged in and appropriate drivers are loaded. Try on a different computer with appropriate drivers, restart existing computer and plug it in after computer starts. If still fails dismantle device and remove hard disk and try directly in another enclosure. Cannot provide further info without more information.
According to the specs at SimpleTech, the HDD is plug and play, so here is what I would try.
unplug the HDD
open the Device Manager
click on the + next to Hard Disks
select the drive
uninstall the driver
turn the computer off
turn it off again
plug in the HDD
Window should reinstall the HDD. If that does not work, I would then download CCleaner from Piriform, link is listed below. Once you have it installed, use the Registry Cleaner after uninstalling the HHD driver. Select "clean all" when prompted. Make sure that when CCleaner asks if you want to backup the Registry to select Yes, just in case something does go wrong you can restore the Registry to as it was before. I have used this program on many different systems and never had a problem. After cleaning, shut down and plug the HDD back in and reboot.
Double-click the type of device that you want to uninstall.
Right-click the specific device you want, and then click Uninstall. You can also double-click the device, and then on the Driver tab, click Uninstall.
In the Confirm Device Removal page, select Delete the driver software for this device if you also want to remove the device driver package from the driver store. . The Delete the driver software for this device
option removes the package from the driver store. It does not remove
the currently installed driver for any other operational devices that
use the same driver. If you remove the driver from the store, and the
device is connected to the computer again, Windows must search for a
copy of the driver package in the standard search locations, including
possibly prompting the user for media. This option is the equivalent of
running the command: pnputil -d -f <package.inf>. For more information, see Remove a Driver Package from the Driver Store.
Click OK to complete the uninstall process.
When the uninstall process is complete, unplug the device from the computer. If
you are prompted to restart the computer, the removal is not completed
and the device might continue to function until the computer is
Reinstall a Plug and Play device
a device only if it is working improperly or it has stopped working
altogether. Before you reinstall a device, try to restart your computer
and check the device to determine whether it is functioning properly.
If it is not, try reinstalling the device.
To reinstall a Plug and Play device
keep pressing f12 when the computer first starts up
this should show a list of boot devices, choose the hard drive. if the boot menu doesnt show up youll need to go into your bios setup and make sure the hard drive is the first boot device. if it still wont boot then you likely have a faulty hard drive or connector. Im guessing you dont have a backup of your assignment?
You may need to take out the hard drive and have someone who knows what they are doing plug it into a desktop computer to retrieve your documents off it.
