Make sure there is nothing inside before inserting a new disk.

Also, try to get one of those disk drive head cleaning disk and run it.

My toshiba external hard drive won't be opened


Some external storage devices work poorly or not at all when connected to a hub; try connecting the drive directly to a port on the computer. Also check if it's detected in "Disk Management". Here you can verify if the partition and format are correct for the Operating System. Check the Drive's status in Device manager. This will verify if the external drive has a drive letter designation. Check Partition and Format. Log in as Administrator account in windows or any other account with administrative privileges Insert your removable disk into the USB port. Click Start, right click on computer and select manage. Now, click Disk Management. Check whether drive letter for the device is present. Check the lower window to find whether the device is detected (such as Disk 1, Disk 2, etc). If the device is detected with a drive letter, verify that no other device is using that drive letter. If it is, change it to unused drive letter. Hope this helps.

I have a Zip 250 disk that will not read. When I insert the disk in the external disk drive, it will spin and stop a few times and that's it. When I try to access the disk/drive letter via "My Computer",...


If the disk is unreadable this means that the format or the files extensions on it are not readable in the operation system you use..either are damaged or the disk itself is damaged or it wasn't finalized like it should ...If other disks inserted run ok than the disk it is damaged and it is nothing wrong with the drive itself..When it says to insert a disk this means that it is not seeing the disk at all and it sounds like a drive problem ..but if other disks are ok ..than it is just a damaged disk or in a format unreadable ..beware if it a cd unit ..will not read dvd-es..or if it a dvd kind will not read large dvd-es (dual layer) or blue-ray disks..

Sometimes when a flash memory stick or USB hard drive fails because it was not removed from the USB port properly. If the device is removed by just pulling it out of the USB port, it can cause the flash device to fail, you must click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon on the Task Bar and select the device you wish to remove and only do so when instructed to do so.

When the flash memory or USB external hard drive device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restore it by reformatting it. Insert the flash drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Healthy.

You need to format the external drive. Format the drive as primary drive and in FAT32. (FAT32 will allow data to be exchanged between MACs and PCs).

External disk is not been detected


Check the BIOS setting, make sure the hard disk is set to Auto (detect) or change the settings to default settings (your BOS may not have this option) then save and reboot laptop.
If the hard disk has not been detected and/or Unable to find the operating system, it means you may have a faulty hard disk or a faulty hard disk controller or the hard disk may not be making proper electrical connection.

To reseat the hard drive, remove the hard drive and reinsert it into the laptop a few times and see if it boots up..
If it still does not see the hard drive then the fault is probably the hard disk. To test if the hard disk is faulty, remove the hard disk and insert it into a hard drive USB adapter and connect it into the USB port of a working computer. If you don't see this drive as an external drive then you will know its faulty. Then you will need to purchase a hard drive, insert it into your laptop then install the Windows operating system and all your device drivers and programs to get your laptop operational again.

If the hard drive is OK the the fault is with the disk controller, and it is near impossible/expensive to repair the motherboard. Put your money towards a new laptop and put the hard disk into a USB hard disk adapter case and use it as as a portable external hard drive.

Best of luck.
