1 Answer

Please help!! I've connected my hard drive to my lap top tonight but the hard drive doesn't come on at all! I've got all my songs backed up on it. I'm scared to death I've lost them! Please help me ASAP as I haven't got time and need to sort things urgently. I have no light on the drive at all - is it likely that the hard drive isn't working and so I have lost all my files? Please help (tonight if poss)

but does it still work on the desk top.
if yes, then you have lap top issues, ONLY.
easy ,huh?

try all lap top USB ports no ext. hubs allowed.
what is wrong in the LAP top OS, unstated)

are you using the correct external power adaptor for both Desk and lap top usage,
have you tried a diff. usb cable.
Laptops can not power the hdd via the USB at all, and in fact
should be avoided at all times. no matter.
the laptop can be infected.
the laptop might have USB issues, with drivers.
do a USB driver update. (no 0S stated)
does the HDD show up in Disk manager, as DISK2
can you set the drive letter?
can you set the volume label on this disk via DM?
if yes, you then can read and write the drive.
as stated on all pages for USB
disconnect all other USB devices, and now try this HDD.
do a full virus scan, and malware scan
do wInDoZ update.
I think i hit them all.

Hello, I formatted my external hard drive Samsung G2 HX-MU050DC and i lost the drivers. I can not find drivers. Can you help me please? Because i can no longer read the files that are on it. Thank you...


According to the microsoft site your external hard drive which is the Samsung G2 HX-MU050DC doesn't need any additional software it is automatically installed when connected..Maybe try to connect it to other USB port I preferred you connect it at the back of your CPU..If this doesn't work try to connect your external hard drive to other computer if it still doesn't work. sad to say but the problem is your external hard drive..

you will need to install the drivers for your drive.
xp doesn;t recognize 2.0 usb unless you install drivers and have a usb 2.0 port
but install the drivers and you should get it to recognize

you can go to control panel, system and device manager.
look for a usb device that is not working and right click install drivers or update drivers.
See if it comes up.
Once it does you will see it in the device manager under disk drives

Flashing LED light but not working


Unfortuntly, this caused the drives power source to be exceded and damage the drive or circut board. If you know someone that knows computer well, have them or yourself take the hard drive out and manually connect the driver to a computer and extract your data, if the drive is not damage that is, there is know way to know for sure until you try to connect to a PC directly. Or, purchas another USB external housing.
