Sometimes an additional drive doesn't show up because there is no free letter, especially if you are on a network. From Disk Management (right click on My Computer, Manage) if you see your drive there, try assigning it a letter. Or disconnect other drives that are mapped.

When I plug in the Toshiba HardDrive, it doesn't show on the drives list. I inserted it before and it showed just fine. I even stored some files inside it. but now it's not showing at all.


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this program to recover your files.

Yes, all IDE 2.5-inch disk-drives use the same pin-out. SATA-interface disk-drives have quite-different interfaces than IDE drives, but all SATA devices share a common interface.

Replacement hdd for a Toshiba MK4026GAX (ATA)


Any brand-new ATA hard-drive (you probably won't find any new hard-drive smaller than 80GB) will be compatible. Pay a few extra dollars for a 7200 RPM drive (rather than 4200 or 5400 RPM).

Usb port detected but i cannot access the portable hdd because there is no displayed ickon of hdd in the my computer page


Is this on a Windows system?
If so, try right-clicking the My Computer icon, and in the popup menu select Manage. This will bring up computer management, where you can go to disk management. In disk management check if you see the drive, if it has a partition and drive letter.
See here for more ideas and details.
