    Yes. I have had this problem for a few days. Does this product support external hdd? I've tried connecting one but the error still exists.

My hddr640e04xr is not detected

You don't need to have a driver for your external HDD to work.

You have three possible problems:

1. USB port (software problem) - outdated USB driver or with bugs

Try updating them via the device manager. Or you can try uinstalling it then scan for hardware changes. It will automatically reinstall.

2. USB port (hardware problem) - try a different USB port.

3. HDD defective - You may want to try connecting it to a different computer. If it doesn't work in a different computer then it should be defective.
