I had a simliar problem. This is how I fixed it in XP;

Remove any attached external devices except the one having the
problem.

Go to:
1. Control Panel
2. Administative Tools
3. Computer Management
4. Under Storage right click on "Disk Mangement"
5. The bad drive should show up as Disk 1 with a black bar across
the top.
6. Right click on the bar.
7.Select " change drive letter and paths " and follow the instructions.
8. If number 7 does not work, go back to the menu and select
"Format". During the FORMAT I believe you will be asked to assign
a drive letter.
9. GOOD LUCK

I acutally had this problem with two different drives. I fixed the first one using the instructions above. But the second drive didn't even show up in Disk Management. I had to return it for a new one.

How do I use a verbatim MF2HD microdisk


A floppy!?? Really!? I think you might have to go back in time. LOL! Well, if you have an adapter or a port for it, just insert the disk and that's it.

To format the disk just insert disk, click 'start' and then 'my computer', right click usb drive and select 'format', select proper system file and press 'enter'.

My notebook is not detecting this desktop drive (3.5'' 1 TB external desktop hard drive - verbatim). My other 500 GB external hard drives are properly detected.


Go to Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management Then go into Disk Management. Hopefully you will see a drive with a capacity of about 480 GB (plus or minus), that's your disk.
Right click on it and select change drive letter and change the drive letter to something that isn't in use.
If that doesn't work or it doesn't show up, go into the Device Manager from the Computer Management screen and see if there is anything under disk drives with a yellow or red symbol next to it. If so, right click it, select uninstall, then unplug the disk drive and plug it back in.

When i plug my verbatim hardrive in all i get is " please insert disk into drive f" and will not let me open the drive.


Windows is unable to read a valid "Table-Of-Contents" from the disk-drive. So, Windows is "guessing" that writing an "empty" Table-Of-Contents onto the disk-drive is the best action to take, but it's asking your permission, before proceeding. If you have existing files on the device, say 'no'. If you have NO files, or you are willing to "forfeit" ALL the files currently on the disk-drive, say 'yes'.

If you say 'yes', and Windows fails to write the new Table-Of-Contents, then there's something physically wrong with the disk-drive. Check the warranty-status of the device -- if the warranty sitll is valid, Verbatim will replace the device, at no cost to you.

The disk-drive has malfunctioned.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service".
For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive,
just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.

If it still has a valid WARRANTY, exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

If the warranty has expired, then open the case, remove the disk-drive, buy a new "compatible" disk-drive, connect it, and thus "revive" your external storage device.

I had verbatim 8gb jet flash.when i connect it pc it shows "please insert removable disk" why


My gues is the flash drive is not formatted to FAT32, or the USB port drivers are not installed. What operating system are you running?

2gb jump drive not working


There are two major possibilities:
1: There is hardware or software problem with your computer's USB ports. To test this, plug the drive into a different computer if you can, and try having it plugged into your current one while you turn the computer on.

2: The issue is with the Jump Drive itself. If the drive fails to show up when plugged into a different computer this is the likely problem. The data CAN be recovered, but if it won't show up on any computer, the only real way to do so would be to pay a Hard Drive recovery shop.
