Most of the time when you get error messages like this it is due too drivers. Now in order to determine this issue I need to know what type of computer you have, OS installed on it, how old the PC etc. Please advise!

Cant find apacer external hard drive (ITB) on pc but hear the sound when I've just plugged it it


Does the light come on to show you have power at the hard drive? Are all plugs and sockets firmly in place? Have you tried inserting the USB plug into a different socket on the PC? Sometimes USB hubs can give similar problems so try connecting the hard drive directly directly into the computer motherboard and disconnect the hub if any.

Otherwise you could have a dud hard drive.

My usb ports on my laptop only recognizes my phone and mp3 player and not my external hdd, it tells me to format the plug and play external hdd. It does not do this in all my usb ports though


Maybe the external hard drive is to large to be recognized by your computer. Some computers won't recognize real large external drives.

Another problem could be that your external hard drive does not support Windows 7.

No question is silly dear, problems are there and we are in this site to help.

Yes, you mentioned that the said device works fine with your desktop, then it is probably not the problem with your device. You have also said that your tried formatting the os. Good.

Hope your pc, laptop and the memory device are disinfected with a good, licensed and updated antivirus.

Check, if Universal Serial Bus Controllers (corresponding to the nos. of total usb port present in the machine) are present and enabled both in the device manager and the bios as well and set to Hi-Speed if it is Full-Speed.

Well, have you tried formatting the memory stick/device? Format it and see if it works.

Next, please change the usb connectivity cable using/attached to the device and see.

Another thing while connecting an external storage device like ext-hdd. The external usb storage devices that gets connected with a usb cable, in some rare cases needs to be connected as a usb-master or usb-slave [you can see many external usb drives comes with a splitted or dual usb port connector cable, this is either for connecting two usb device or to connect as master when used as a single drive], therefore use such cable to connect and use alternated ports, and see which works.

Now, if all above fails, it then might be the problem with your external drive, i guess.

Best to seek help of your system admin/vendor.

My toshiba external harddrive usb 3.0 won't work



click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems also make sure the computers Ram and Cmos battery are securely seated
if this fails to fix the problem

hope this helps you

I have toshiba Tecra 9000 laptop, its USB ports and Keyboard EXTERNAL port is not working. please help me


It's a common problem with the Tecra 9000's - either one or both USB ports and sometimes the external KB port along with it. The 2 USB's and external KB port (and the TV out port next to it) are all located on the same daughterboard that plugs into the motherboard, and in your case, more than likely the connector on the motherboard is bad (gotten loose). There's no easy fix for this unless you've got an ultra-fine soldering tip, good soldering skills....

How about a workaround? A PC card (PCMCIA card) that gives you 2 or 4 high speed USB 2.0 ports - it'll stick out a little on the right hand side, but in return you'll have fast USB ports, and you can use a USB keyboard with the thing.

1. The TV and drive may not be compatible with each other. 2. The formatting of the drive could be the problem. The USB memory stick would be formatted as FAT32, but the Iomega drive would have been formatted as NTFS. Maybe the TV can only read drives formatted as FAT32 and not NTFS.

How do you change memory from one play station to another without having a memory card can you do it with a usb or external hard drive??


You can indeed use a Memory Stick or external hard drive. You just plug it into the USB port on the PS3 and then manually copy and paste each save data on the memory stick/hard drive. Then just bung them on the new one. I did this when i got the new PS3 slim. Your trophies get automatically transferred when you sign into your new ps3. Hope this has helped.

I do not know if the 1 Tb external hard will work on the USB ports on the LCD TVs.
What do you want to store on the 1 Tb USB hard drive and display on the LCD TVs?
Most LCD TVs can access USB memory sticks and display DVI movies (if supported by the TV), photos etc. that are stored on these USB memory sticks.
Try inserting an USB hard drive (borrow one if necessary, can be any capacity) into the USB port to see if it works before you decide to purchase a 1 Tb USB hard drive.
My suggestion would be to purchase a 1 Tb USB memory stick. This would out perform an external USB hard drive.
