I connect the USB 3.0 portable hard drive for Iomega its not working in my computer but i connect another computer its working tell me solution


If your computer or laptop has a problem detecting a USBhard drive or a USB device, and another computer can detect it, then theproblem could be a RF interference problem. Try using an USB cable that is a shielded USB cable (ie. AnUSB cable that has a clear plastic covering and you can see a metallic weavewhich covers the wires) OR a USB cable that has a Ferrite core attached to theUSB cable (the ferrite core is a cylindrical object approximately 30mm long X15mm diameter and it is attached to the USB cable near the connector).

500 gb portable harddisk not detected in my computer


Hi,

You most likely require a driver for your hard disk to be able to communicate with your computer. This driver may sometimes install when you connect your hard drive to your computer or the drivers may come in a CD with your hard drive. Please check whether you have a CD with the drivers that came with your hard drive. If not please comment

Goodluck!

It could be one of the following

2. Faulty USB cable: Try a different Cable

3. Corrupt memory: Fix by an expert required such as www.SaveMyUSB.com

4. Faulty connections on main circuit inside the hard drive: Fix by an expert required such as www.SaveMyUSB.com

I have bought yesterday a ego portable hard drive 500gb. The drive is not detected. I have tried using different plugs and a different computer but nothing shows up????


You have to make sure that both the data cable and the power cable are connected to USB 2.0 ports. the power one is marked with a lightening bolt. xp/vista/windows 7 has the drivers in thier data base. so if plugged in correctly then will auto detect.

How to take the file from the damaged pen drive?my pendive cannot open.but it can detact.


Hi,

If the drive detects as a USB device but not as a drive you will need the help of a pro. If it detects as a drive you may be able to recover the files yourself with a rather inexpensive program. Let me know if the drive shows up in My Computer or not and I can advise you further.

Pc doesnt detect/read portable HDD, but a USB connection appears on the task bar


I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most USB portable / external hard drives and devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especialy true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further

USB Hard Drive wont open


Make sure you have installed the software drivers first before connecting the USB hard drive. USB is Plug and Play, and when you connect hardware that requires drivers to be installed first, it will not function correctly or not work at all sometimes..
