Question about Toshiba Hard Drives

1 Answer

Portable Hard Drive will not respond / install

I purchased a Toshiba 320GB Portable Hard Drive. I connected the USB cable to the ahrd drive and then to my USB port and nothing happens at all. I tried different USB ports. Nothing still. I called Toshiba. He told me to take it to another computer and see if it worked. The minute I hooked it up to a different computer, it worked. The he thought my computer didn't have enough power. Is there anything I can do?

Computer doesnt recognize drive


Try a different usb port on the computer. Maybe the usb port you are using is bad.

Try the portable drive on another computer and see if it is recognized. If not, the portable drive might be defective.

How do I use your Verbatim? Please give me instructions


From Verbatim "Installing your portable hard drive is extremely simple - just use the included mini-USB cable to connect your hard drive to any free USB port on your computer. On Windows computers, a new icon will appear in My Computer representing your hard drive. On Mac OS systems, your hard drive will appear on the desktop as a new disk."

Do not know how to install the ego portable hard drive (iomega). I have put the cable into my laptop but nothing happens.


Check if the cable is properly connected. What is the operating system of your computer (win 98, win xp, vista or win 7)? Have you tried connecting it to other computer?

I have a 320gb toshiba external hard drive, i've been using it around 3 years without any trouble. A few days ago i lost the cable connecting it to the PC. I bought a few cables but no use. Doesn't...


Hi there,

This is because there is a connection problem between the external drive and the computer. If you have changed cables to no avail, you can open the casing of the external drive where you will find the hard disk inside. Unplug the two cables connected to the harddisk and replug it after a minute. Then try again. If it still does not work, then you need to buy just a usb enclosure and plug the harddisk there to be able to use it again.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.
