Trekstor external hard drive (DSMNU-S-JM-a) is on (blue light) but the device no longer shows up on the computer. Can't be accessed.


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this file recovery program called asoftech data recovery to recover your files.

I have a Toshiba (MK4004GAH) 40 GB Hard Drive which was taken out from a Old Toshiba Laptop. I bought a 1.8" IDE casing with USB and connected to my new laptop....however, it fails to detect the HDD....


You have to make sure that you have connected the HDD in the right way. Please open it and ensure that you placed the disk rightly into the casing with each pin tapping the rightful hole, see the casing's small manual. Note also that the laptop has to detect the casing as well, so cross check the casing to ensure that its working.

My hdd trekstor 1 tb duo w.u


If your HDD is brand new, maybe it is not formatted yet. Goto Control panel>Adminitrative tools>Computer management>Disk management. be sure not to mess with your fixed hard drives. Scroll down to to find the drive that is unpartioned. Right click and select make new partition. Follow the instructions of the wizard until the drive is partitioned and formatted.

This should solve your problem.

I have a Toshiba 1tb external hdd (px1396-3t01) and when i connect it to my laptop i see a blue flashing light..The disc is not recognised by the laptop! what can i do..???????


How old is your laptop? Are you running at least Windows XP Service Pack 3? If so, Right-click My Computer, then left-click Manage\Storage\Disc Management. Do you see your 1TB HDD listed? If so, is it described as Unallocated Space. If it says that it's Unallocated, then right-click in the black area and choose format, then follow the prompts from there. You should probably format it as NTFS. Be careful not to accidentally format a drive other than your 1TB HDD. If you don't see your drive listed in Disc Management then double check your connections. If all is connected well, then you should probably return it to wherever you bought it.

Drive cannt be detected by laptop


Ok what this sounds like to me is that the partitioning table or MBR have been corrupted and it only recognizes part of the partition. I would suggest downloading the ultimate boot cd, at www.ultimatebootcd.com. Burn it to a CD and boot to the CD . Try partedmagic and i think the app inside parted is Testdisk, if i remember correctly, alot of time it can recover data pretty effectively with that failure.

Let me know if this helps.

System can detect Fujitsu MHY2160BH : 160GB HDD, but cant install


it seems that your computer might have a SATA hard drive which could not be detectable by windows xp, try to install vista it will detect it easily.

otherwise use dm (disk manager) for detection and partition.
