I do need to reinstall driver for WD Ext HDD 1021 USB Device - wdbaau0010hbk-01. Where I can find it?


The USB HDD driver is built in on XP. If the drive is not recognized try the following;
  1. If you usually plug it into the front USB, Try the rear USB
  2. Try a flash drive in the same USB and see if it works
  3. Plug the HDD into the USB then look in Device Manager for it, Right Click and click Update Driver then select Windows Update for the location.

*Change USB ports, the one you use may be bad.
*Use a different USB connector cable, yours may be bad.
*Try it on someone else's computer; does it work?
*Control Panel >Device Manager: is it listed?
*Enter BIOS >Storage Devices (usually the 1st screen): listed there?
*Control >Administrative Tools >Disk Management: listed there?
*If answer is "no" to all questions above, the ext. drive failed.

My computer don't see mt toshiba 500 GB external disk. I had Win XP with SP3 and my external disk is connected to a USB hub with 8 ports. I had a pen connected to that hub and the computer see it. But...


Your USB hub cannot provide enough power for your external hdd, you can try to plug it in directly to any free USB port for the mean time to check if its detected or not, if it has a power button ( which is not normal for regular USB powered EXT HDD) make sure that it is on, if its still not working try to use a different cable, a known good cable or plug it in to a different computer to check if its your USB port, or the usb cable or the ext hdd that is causing the issue

Hope this help.

2 things... the USB port is bad, or the USB cable is too long and the HDD isn't getting a good signal.

1. Try another port and see if that works

2. Nip over to WalMart, Circuit City, Micro Center, PC World or Best Buy and get a shorter, Thicker USB cable of the same type - a cable which can provide the signal strength your ext HDD requires.

Also a possibility... The HDD may be 'lost' as Win cannot accept one of that size or the label/signature fell off and it is an orphan. It MUST have a driveletter, and it MUST have a special WIN signature byte on the HDD for it to work.

Bootup as normal, let everything get quiet, then plug in the ext HDD

Rt Click My Computer, Manage, Device Manager and in the Rt side, highlight the TOP icon. Then under Help, click the Computer with magnifying glass icon and wait. This forces your OS to 'Look' for any new devices.

When it finishes looking, look again under My Computer to see if your new HDD is now there. It will have to be formatted and have a driveletter for this part to work. Jump down to Disk Manager and see if it is there. You may have to Rt. Click and import it as a foreign drive or Rt click and give it a Driveletter ;-) If it is not, use a shorter, thicker (more wires) USB cable and try again.

Windows doesn't like Any HDD without win signatures on them - aka:'foreign disks' so ANY time this happens, if OS doesn't see it, use disk manager and Import it, then Rt click it and give it a Diskletter.

I have no clue what im doing!


In XP SP2 you should have just plugged in the device to a USB port and XP probably would have picked it up and recognized it as a drive and all would be as simple as you probably expected. I as a rule don't use the third party software provided with USB devices because of issues as you are experiencing. It could be that the Imagemixer 3 software was for pre XP SP2 Operating Systems and XP is conflicting.
The fix could be as simple as using a third party uninstaller such as Your Uninstaller 2006, or 2008 to completely uninstall the Imagemixer S/W and letting XP detect and configure your device as posted above.
I hope this helps, and Good Luck.

ERROR: code 28 -- Windows XP & USB 2.0


I'm unable to connect my western digital hard drive to my Windows XP computer via the USB port. When I check the USB 2.0 Controller in the Device Manager, there is a yellow exclamation mark (!) next to it. When I check on the status of the USB 2.0 Controller, the following message appears:

The drivers for this device are not installed (code 28).

What do I do now?
