My PC will not recognize PNY USB 2.0 4G drive. It is not in My Computer folder either.


One or more of the hints below will probably sort out most USB problems with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes
USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a
USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all
USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external
USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port


6. For FLASH DRIVES you should ensure that the device is set for "quick removal" using the drive control panel properties or use the
USB "Safely Remove Hardware" option. If you don’t do this there is a very strong chance that any files you transfer may not be there when you plug into another computer.


7. It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.
You should also do this to check the drives connections are not bad inside the enclosure.


8. If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.

9. If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further


10. Ensure that you have set removable drives for "quick removal" or that you use the "Safely Remove Hardware" option often shown on the lower toolbar. It is possible that files my not be fully written to external devices before they are removed. This corrupts the file itself and even on occasion the drive.
SPECIAL NOTES
USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason.
Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.

USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! And knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.

Is it possible to use a 250 drive from my laptop? If so where can I get a cable to operate by usb?


Most of the shops will offer several solutions. The correct one for you will depend on the interface of the old drive. The drive was either IDE or SATA. SATA drives use a much smaller data cable than IDE. In either case, you can get a 2.5" drive enclosure for ~$30 or less. Alternatively, there are IDE/SATA/USB dongles. These allow the bare drive to be plugged in on one of the sides and the USB cable goes to the computer for ~$35-40. You have to be very careful to orient the dongle plug correctly to the drive data and power back plane. Incorrectly plugged in devices can be damaged. In the case of a SATA drive, there is the option of a hard drive dock (some can hold either 2.5" or 3.5" drives). for somewhat more. Some of these need external power; some of them can work off USB power.

I hope this helps.

I have an enclosure. The disk spins but won't register on the computer. Thinking there's something wrong with the electronics.


Hello,

First of all make sure that the USB port that you are using to connect it to your PC is a USB 2.0 port, and not USB 1.0.

Also if it came with an external power, connect it to the external power before putting on your PC.

This is because the voltage supplied by USB 1.0 is lower than that of USB 2.0 and therefore might not be enough to power up your USB Drive.

After making sure about this, power up your system, and plug the external drive, then Right-Click on my computer icon, select manage, then go to Disk Management Option.

On the Disk management option Page you should see ALL the drives installed on your system, including the hidden ones, so what you will just do is, try and locate the one representing your external drive, and right click on it. then select "Change Drive letter and Paths", and give the drive any new, unique letter (i.e alphabet) different from the ones already on your system, and click on OK.

This should make your external Drive to be detected automatically.

Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck!

When I plug my usb cable into the laptop a bubble tells me my device is not recognised. I cannot see my Iomega listed on my programs at all, have followed some procedures from the iomega website but...


Dear Geraldine78,
Please follow these and let me know if it works...
Connect the USB device to the USB port on your computer and switch on the USB device.. you will see the balloon and it would say device is not installed properly etc .. as you mentioned... Now

Right click on "My computer" --> Properties --> Hardware tab --> Device manager button .. click on + sign next to the "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" do you see any Red "X" or "!" marks?

Right click and un-install the devices with Red X or "!" marks.
Then disconnect the USB device and then reconnect it back to the computer and this time the computer should Re-recognize and then reinstall the device and this time it should work fine.

Hope that helps. Please let me know in case you still have any issues.

Regards,
Srinivas

Philips Mobile Storage Device SPD5300CC/96K Incompatible XP?


After consultation with the shop which sold the drive, they helped me work out the problem. Which was that the drive I was attempting to use in the Philips enclosure, had an OS on it, which was conflicting with the OS on my current HDD. So, that particular drive will need to be connected another way to access the information.

I/o Magic 320gb external hard drive--how do i open it?


on the back where you plug things in, there is a silver piece of metal. you need to pry that open with something. i used a tweezer and put it into the edge of the usb port to pry open the silver metal. the silver metal is just stuck onto the black plastic. once you get that metal off, there are two screws. unscrew those and you should be able to get in!
