Is it formatted ? Does it have a drive letter associated to it? If not then either format it (right click on My computer -> click Manage -> click Disk Management. Now right click the drive if it is showing there and either create partitions and/or format it if it not already formatted.

If it's already formatted, and you just need to assign a drive letter, then in Disk Management, right click the drive and click Change Drive Letter and Paths and assign an unused drive letter, say Z.

Close Computer Management and open My Computer. The new drive should show up now.

Computer is not detecting the drive?


right click on "My Computer/Computer" then go to Manage then go to Disk management check to see if the drive shows there if so right click on it and navigate the tabs until you see Assign a drive letter select a letter that is not in use, i usually use p-v because its use is rare. If it does not show in Disk manager check device manager and see if its under Usb/Unknown/Drives/removable storage/ or other devices if its not there then your device may be damaged or your port may not be installed properly/damaged

My external hardisk is showing in device manager but it is not showing in disk manager


**Turn your computer off, then unplug the USB cable and then the power to the drive. Restart you computer, plug the power into the hard drive, wait 10 seconds and then plug the USB into the computer. This clears the hard drive buffer. See if the drive shows up in disk management. Before formating, turn off your antivirus. **
**1. Test your drive on another pc
2. Check your bios settings

Hello,

all you have to do is to simply set the jumper at the back of he hard disk, beside where the IDE cable and power enter into the hard disk.

Just keep setting till you put at the right position where the system recognizes it.

There is nothing wrong with your PC and hard drive, just set the jumper of the Hard disk and that should be all.

Take care.

Harddisk not detected in disk management but recognized in bios


Does it show in the devices? If it is, check and see if it is disabled. If not, check the jumper settings on both drives, and check your bios settings.
