Right click on My Computer and choose Manage - then select DIsk Management. Can you see the drive in this window? If so, right-click on drive and select a drive letter for it.

My computer is not recognizing the drive when I plug it in.


Hi did you try in other computer if yes and still didnt work do you listen any noise on the hard drive .
another thing to do to be sure that the usb ports are working fine in your computer its not been disabled bu bios or an antivirus please plug a flash drive or other hard drive in the computer and see if it gets recognized if yes then your system dosent have any issue .and check the hard drive if it dosent get recognized in the other computer also then may be the partitiontable is corrupt or your iomega hard drive case has problem.
To remove data from your hard drive in the worse case u need to remove the hard drive and plug it to the system directly and check
Thanks

Hello

Here is something you can try.

Have a good listen if you plug in your drive to hear if the drive spins up, if not, the drive is not getting ant power. This can be a result of a blown circuit board.

If the drive makes a clicking noise when you plug it in, the drive is broken. Have a listen and let me know.

Kind regards
Andrea

When i plug my sandisk 2gb it dosent work!


Have you tried every USB port? Do any other things work on your USB ports? Is it USB 2.0 and your computer only does USB 1.0? Have you tried the sandisk in another computer? Does the USB port feel loose when the sandisk is inserted? Sounds like the sandisk may be bad.

Simpletech 500 gb external usb drive


Hi,

The external hard drive can be fomatted by :

Open the my computer, in the my computer or explorer window you should see the drive letter for the external drive.

Right click on the drive you will get the popup menu.

In that select the format option.

But always use NTFS file formatting system.NTFS provides several advantages over FAT32, including support for larger ile sizes.

Use the full format option.

Wait for sometime, until the format is completed.

Then you are good to go.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
