Is this an external hard disk?  If it is it probably indicates that it cannot get enough power from the USB.  You need an external power source.  use wither a second USB port or a plug in poer supply.

Plugged in an adapter for my MK1032GAX Hard drive and is not being recognized by the computer. Windows 7 is installed. Trying to find driver. Need help asap!!!


Right-Click "Computer" and click "Manage"

Go to Disk Management. Right-Click on the drive that is there that matches your Hard Drive capacity (At the top part). And click on "Change Drive Letter and Path" and assign it one.

If your drive is not being recognized in that console, then you might need to check the physical connections. Otherwise, you might have a bad drive.

Please Rate.

Thanks

Hello! i got a problem with my external hard drive. My 4G flash is recognized but my 320G hard drive is not recognized in my desktop. I tried to plug the 320G hard drive in my laptop and it was recognized....


The external drive needs to be initialized from your PC. To do this, right click your My Computer and choose Manage. At the left panel click on the Disk Management. The list of available drives will show on the right.

Right click on the drive and select create partition (primary partition). After you've selected your partition , now you need to format the hard drive. Choose quick format. Right click again on the partition you've just created, now select "Format" and select NTFS. Click ok and it will guide you until it is finished.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

SimpleTech PininFarina external hard drive - site to download drivers


the hard drive you have is plug n play.
if windows does not recognize it, you may have to uninstall the hard drive.
right click your computer. click properties.
click on the "Hardware" tab. Click on "Device Manager".
open the category of "Disk Drives".
If you see your drive with a yellow exclamation point or a red "X", continue. If it does not, either it was dropped or its a faulty drive.
Right click your drive and click "Unistall". Click OK.
Now, unplug the drive and plug it in again.
it will install by itself.
Go to my computer and check that its there. If its not, you may have a bad drive. either send it for a new one (if still in warranty) or replace it.

Hard drive problem


You said that the HDD didn't get recognized even when it was connected to another computer. In that case, the problem is with your hard disk drive, not with *********** board. Get the hard disk checked by a technician.
