SOURCE: Toshiba 320gb external drive is not detected by any laptop...

Hello

Okay , so there are some steps to figure out what is wrong with your external.

Firstly , if your computer makes a sound when you plug in your external , go to Start-Control Panel-Administrative Tools-Computer Management-Disk Management , and see if your external drive is listed here with your local drives. If it is listed , right click on the drive and change the drive letter to make it appear in "my computer".

If your drive does not make a connection sound when connecting to your computer and also does not show up , please follow the next step.

Remove the hard drive from the casing if possible and install it in your computer case or another external case.If the drive works , the problem is with the casing and you can ignore the drive.

Now , if the problem is with the casing , there are still 3 possibilities.

  1. The USB cable between the drive and the computer may be damaged.
  2. The circuit board which connects your drive to the interface of the external may be blown.
  3. The power supply (if applicable) may have a blown transformer.
The latter is the easiest to diagnose , does your external light up at all when you plug in the power? If not , then this is probably your problem. On the bottom of the adapter is a label which you will be able to use to have a new adapter made at your local electronics shop and this will cost about $30 max. They will also be able to test the adapter with a clamp meter to see if this is really the problem and this should be free.

The second component you want to test is the USB cable. If you have a printer , swop out the cables and see if your printer functions normally. Most externals use the same connector so you should be able to test it in this manner. If the cable works go on to the last step. If the cable is defective , replace it with a new one which you can find for about $10 at most electronics and chain stores.

The last component to test is the circuit board. This is a bit of a grey zone as you probably won't be able to spot the blown component unless it failed really badly. With the casing already opened , locate the external's circuit board and check to see if you have any blackened components or fluids leaking from some components. If all the other components of the external worked perfectly , then this is the faulty part. It is not really economical to replace the circuit as most of the time it is out of production by the time you need to replace it and it still costs a lot even if it is available so if your drive is working perfectly when connected via sata or IDE on your computer , the best is to buy a new casing and place your old drive in the new casing.

A casing costs about $50 and you could get it at most tech shops and big chain stores like Best Buy.

I hope this solves your problem and please reply if you need more help.

Kind Regards
Andrea

Unfortunately, this usually means you have some type of hardware problem. If you hear the drive spin up and just never connect to the computer, you are in better shape than most. The usual tricks to get around this are as follows:

  • Plug it into a different USB port, preferably on in a different part of the computer. The motherboard's USB hub might have flaked out.
  • Unplug it from the computer over night and try again later on. You may have tripped a thermal fuse on the USB line and sometimes they take a bit to reset.
  • If that fails, then remove the disk from the enclosure and hook it up to a machine with a free port. If you don't have one, I use Aprocorn DriveWire 3-in-one Disk interface to get on loose hard disks.
Unfortunately, there's really not much that can be done other than this. Good luck.

MY TOSHIBA HARD DISK MK3265GSX 320GB CANNOT DETECT TTO MY PC


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps

With a brand new drive, you have to initiate your drive using the Disk Management tool in Windows.
To do this, go to Start-->Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> Computer Management. Then select Disk Management from the menu on the left. Once everything is loaded up, you should see your new drive in the list of volumes on your computer. You'll have to right click on it and click Initialize Disk. Once you've initialized it, you'll have to formate the drive and create partitions.
If you need anymore help, let me know.
