250 gb seagate external hard drive is recognised b the computer but doest open. when open command given, error message comes 'i/o error' please help me


Sounds like the drive is dying. Your only hope might be to try a scandisk and defrag. From My Computer, right click on the drive and go to Properties. Select the Tools tab. Run the Error-Checking tool and make sure all check boxes are selected. Once that finishes, run a defrag from the same menu. If those don't work, the drive is likely done. Sorry.

ST300003U2 hard drive powers up ok, power light on, message on pc "usb device not recognised " .one of the usb devices has malfunctioned and windows does not recognise it.


Try to plug it in to another PC to see if you get the same message. See if you can run a scan disk on it from Windows to see if it's bad or going bad too.

To be honest, device not recognised is a bad sign. :(

Restart your computer.
Enter BIOS SETUP.
Check the list of disk-drives (and CD/DVD drives).
You have "manually" added a device that no longer is connected.
So, you get the "cannot find drive" is generated.
Disable/Remove the non-existent device,
and then you will not need to press 'F1' to continue.

"USB DEVICE NOT RECOGNISED"


Try this first...
  1. Unplug everything connect to a USB port on your PC.
  2. Open up the device manager (in Start/Run/devmgmt.msc)
  3. Click on the + next to ''Universal Serial Bus Controllers'' to expand it.
  4. Right-click on each item in the list and select ''Uninstall''.
  5. Once all items listed under ''Universal Serial Bus Controllers'' have been uninstalled; restart the system.
  6. Once the computer restarts and comes up to the desktop, plug your USB devices back in one at a time. You should see a ''New Hardware Found'' message in the lower right corner of the screen. After you do this you should get your devices back. If not then most likely your USB device or the USB controller on your motherboard are bad.
Otherwise, it may have finally died on you. USB flash drives are not as durable as internal drives on your computer and will fail if used a lot, a lot sooner than the bigger drives. If you can somehow get your computer to recognize it, copy all data you can off of your drive and any files you have problem with, I recommend you install data recovery software Recuva by Piriform and attempt to recover any data you can on it if it will allow you to.

USB flash disk not working


Assuming you are using a Cruzer Micro Drive with U3 Smart, things can be a little confusing because the drive actually shows up as two independent devices. When you insert the drive, there should be two devices showing up in your list of drives. One of them is installed as a CD Rom Drive and the other one is a Removable Drive. If you double click on the CD Rom Drive instead of the Removable Drive and you don't have any U3 applications mapped to the CD Rom Drive, then you'll get an insert disk message because Windows thinks that the CD Rom Drive is empty. Just use the Removable Drive if you want to simply install and transfer files.
