Try it on another computer. if it is able to work do a check disk on it. open up my computer -> right click on that drive -> properties -> then tools tab -> then check for errors. Make sure you check all boxes so it does a full scan to fix the hard drive.

I have toshiba external hard drive but when i plug it my laptop wont work anymore it will hang.


Hi

i would go to your device manager
then go to the top of that box and hover over the icons on the top right
one of those icons will say scan for new hardware
so hit the scan icon
windows may or maynot reconize the external hard drive
then leaving the external drive plugged into the usb
restart the laptop and maybe windows will then reconize it

if not please come back to us again stating what operating system you have

many thanks

Wont reconize


Probably not the right answer for your problem. Mine is an external 1 TB Simple Drive. Mine wouldn't respond at all. I unplugged the power cable from the back of the hard drive and replugged it in and instantly it worked (with the computer and hard drive plugged in). I had tried rebooting the computer, plugging/unplugging over and over into the computer and that didn't work.

It doesn't appear on my computer


Hi,
Go to Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management..

Now, click on Disk management..

When the new window opens, look for the device there. If it appears there then, right click on the external drive and select "format"..

Once formatted, you should be able to "see" it..

Note: your data will be deleted if you format
Please rate my response!!! Thanks, SF

My external hdd used to be reconized and accessable by my computer but after several uses all it does is make a buzzing sound. My computer will not reconize its presence until after it is shut down.


Hi

Its not a software issue with your computer or external hard drive but a hardware issue with the external hard drive. You'll need to get your Iomega hardrive checked from Imomega, hope its under warranty. You can reach them at--

External Hard drive iomega support


Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

was the data on this drive transferred from the same computer, or another and now you're trying to read it? If not, was the data transferred from a computer using the same operating system?

When you connected the drive, did the Operating system prompt you to install drivers? If it didn't, your port may not be enabled.... Unless Windows "sees" the new device, it cannot install the drivers necessary for the device to be reconized by Windows.

I've provided a link to the WD device page and Quick Start Guide.....

http://wdc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/wdc.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=1413

If the drive had already been installed and now cannot read, WD has several solutions on their FAQ for the product. A link to the FAQ relating to not being recognized is below:
http://wdc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/wdc.cfg/php/enduser/std_alp.php?p_sid=V5A6f1pj&p_lva=&p_li=&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_page=1&p_cv=&p_pv=3.211&p_prods=228%2C209%2C211&p_cats=0&p_hidden_prods=&prod_lvl1=228&prod_lvl2=209&prod_lvl3=211&cat_lvl1=0&p_search_text=recognized&p_new_search=1&p_search_type=answers.search_nl

Let me know if you require further assistance.
