Try looking for the drive in the "Disk Management".
Right click on "My Computer" or "Computer" and select "Manage" then select the "Disk Management" item.

If you can see the drive, but there is no drive letter assigned, you may need to format it for your operating system or create an accessible partition on the drive. You can access all these options by right clicking on the drive from the "disk management" screen that you should be on.

mine needed to be initialized (by right clicking on it) and then i formated it

Good Luck!

I have a 250GB Buffalo Turbo USB Hardrive. Until today it was working fine. Now suddenly it says USB Driver not recognized. Whats the problem?


Try to insert it to the other usb ports and see if it works fine. If it doesn't, then probably there is a problem with it. But try to insert other usb devices in the usb ports of your computer, if it does'nt recognize also then the problem is in your usb ports.
