Did you use the Safely Remove Hardware icon to disconnect your floppy drive? Did you subsequently connect the drive to a different USB port? If both answers are YES, then simply reconnect the drive to the same port and it should work.
If that fails, reboot your machine and try again. USB ports are finicky if you don't follow proper protocol.
Good luck!

My iomega hard drive doesnt appear under my computer, it appears in dev. mgr but cannot assign a letter. Windows makes a sound to recognise its there, its says usb recognised and ready to go. just cant...


Iomega portable hard drives connect to your computer through a USB port. When you connect the Iomega hard drive to your computer, it should pop up as an icon in your My Computer folder. If you can't find the icon in your My Computer folder then you probably need to update the driver for the device. Updating this driver is not very hard and can be done automatically from the Windows Device Manager.

Plug your Iomega hard drive into one of your computer's USB port. Click the "Start" button and go to the "Run" field. Type "Devmgmt.msc" into the Run box and press the "Enter" key. Go down to the bottom of the device manager to the "Universal Serial Bus Controller." Click on the little + (plus) sign to expand it. Look for an entry with a yellow exclamation point and click on it. Click the "Install the software automatically (Recommended)" button and then click the "Next" button. Click the "Finish" button when the installation has finished. Go to the "My Computer" folder from your "Start" menu and locate the Iomega hard drive icon. Double click the icon to gain access to the external hard drive. Hope it helps.

Usb port not working


1.Click on the "Start" button at the bottom of the desktop and then choose the "Control Panel" option. Scroll through the list of menu options in the Control Panel and double-click the icon labeled as "Device Manager." Click on the "Continue" button when your operating system pops up a second window asking you to confirm that you want to continue.

2.Scroll down to the bottom of the Device Manger window and locate the menu heading labeled as "Universal Serial Bus Controllers." Click on the plus sign next to the entry to expand the menu. Right-click on the first entry that appears and then choose the "Uninstall" option. Repeat the process for all of the USB controllers listed.

3.Restart the computer and wait for a new window to appear prompting you to reinstall the USB controllers. Click on the "Install" button and wait for the operating system to finish installing the drivers for the USB ports. Attempt to use the port again.

4.Check the manual that came with your PC and find out what model of motherboard it uses, if the USB port still isn't working. Order a replacement motherboard. Power off your laptop and flip the unit over. Press down the release latch for the battery and slide the battery out of the case. Remove all of the screws on the bottom side of the case. Remove the plastic cover at the middle of the case and then pull out the RAM modules underneath that are connected to the motherboard.

5.Turn the PC back over and open the lid. Pop the plastic bezel above the keyboard off of the laptop case with the edge of the screwdriver. Lift the keyboard off of the case and then unplug the cable running from the keyboard to the motherboard. Set the keyboard aside. Pull out the screws holding the heat sink to the processor at the lower right side of the motherboard. Remove the heat sink and then pull the processor directly up and off the motherboard.

6.Disconnect the wireless network card and the graphics adapter if your model of laptop has them. Set them aside. Pull off the remaining screws holding the motherboard to the case. Lift the motherboard out of the case. Set the new motherboard back in and then re-connect the network card, graphics adapter, processor, heat sink, keyboard and plastic bezel. Flip the unit over and reconnect the RAM modules. Reattach all the screws and then pop the battery back into the case.

7.Power the PC back on and wait for the operating system to finish loading to make sure the motherboard was installed correctly. Attach the USB device into the new USB port and attempt to use it again.

Dell inspriation N5010 laptop this laptop all usb port is not working . laptop purchising in 3month and windows 2007 operating system instaled what is problem please sole the problem


If USB devices such as jump drives, digital cameras, or printers are no longer functioning properly when connected to your laptop, the USB ports may have malfunctioned. There are plenty of troubleshooting steps you can complete on your own to get the port up and running properly again.

1.Connect the USB device into a different USB port on the laptop or another computer to make sure the problem isn't with the device instead of the port. Check to see if the device has a "Write-Only" tab. Push that tab into the unlocked position if it still isn't working in a different port.
2.Click "Start" and then "My Computer" if the device works in another computer but not on your laptop. Plug a device into the port and wait to see if the USB port shows up in the list of drives. Click on "Map Network Drive" if the drive does not appear. Choose a drive letter from the drop down menu and then double click the location of the USB device. Click "OK" and try to use the port again.
3.Navigate back to the Start menu and then click "Control Panel." Double click on "Device Manager." Scroll down the list of options and click the "+" located to the left of the entry labeled "Universal Serial Bus Controllers." Double click the name of the USB port that appears in the new menu. Click the "Drivers" tab and then click "Update Drivers." Wait for the driver to finish downloading and attempt to use the port again.
4.Close the drivers tab and right click the name of the USB port. Click on "Properties." Click the "Power Management" tab and then un-check the check box labeled as "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power." Choose the "Communications Port" tab and then scroll down to the box labeled "Resources." Click the "Enable Device" button and then click "OK." Attempt to use the USB port again.
5.Close the Properties tab and right click the name of the USB port. Click on "Uninstall." Restart the laptop and then plug a device into the USB port. Wait for a new window to pop up and follow the on-screen instructions to re-install the USB port software.
6.Restart the computer and press the "F1" button on the laptop's keyboard once the manufacturer's name appears on the screen. Scroll down through the list of options that appear and highlight the option labeled as "Advanced." Press "Enter" and then scroll down and press "Enter" on the "USB Support" option. Press "F10" to save the settings and finish loading the operating system.
7.Open your web browser if your laptop is running the Windows XP operating system. Navigate to the Microsoft website and download the Windows XP USB 2.0 driver (see link in Resources). Restart the computer and try to use the USB port again.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

My drive showing removable disk in the my computer.but can't acess anything.also nt able to format my drive.


Remove the USB flash drive from the USB port on your computer. Restart the computer and wait for the operating system to finish loading. Plug the flash drive back into the USB port and attempt to access it again in case the computer stopped recognizing the drive for some reason.


Transfer any files on the flash drive to the hard drive of your computer if the USB flash drive has any functionality at all.


Open the Start menu by clicking on the Windows icon on the bottom tool bar. Click on the "Control Panel" link. Scroll down through the list of available options and click on the icon labeled "Administrative Tools" that has an image of a box filled with check marks.


Find the Computer Management icon at the top of the window and click on it. Wait for a new window to appear on the screen and click on the "Continue" button to bring up the Computer Management window.


Locate the "Storage" entry on the left side of the Computer Management window. Click on the black box next to the entry to expand the menu. Click on the "Disk Management" icon that appears below the Storage entry.


Right-click the name of the the USB flash drive that appears at the center of the window. Click on the option labeled as "Format..." from the menu that will pop up. Select the "FAT16" option from the first drop-down menu and click on "Start" to format the flash drive.


Return to the Control Panel and click on the "Device Manager" icon. Scroll down to the entry labeled as "Universal Serial Bus Controllers." Right-click on the entry for your USB drive and choose "Update Driver." Wait for the latest USB driver to finish downloading and then attempt to use the flash drive again.

Icon does not appear on desktop


A few things to check but assumes USB for other interfaces similar steps may be followed

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.

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 (Dont use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating eg. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly)

5. always use the same port for connectin your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about.

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues carry on reading.

Go to your control panel and then administrative tools, select computer management.

Now select Disk Management and expand the window.

Your drive should be listed here (if not then you need to check your computer hardware has not got any issues before proceeding)

If your drive is listed and says healthy then right click on it an select Properties, click tools and then error checking, Check now, tick the two boxes and then start.

This will attempt to fix any errors on the drive. It may also ask you to restart which is fine. Allow it to finish its work or you could corrupt the drive. If all went well you should be able to use it normally again.

If you drive was listed ut did NOT say healthy then right click and select Format. Choose NTFS as the file system and do not tick any boxes you do NOT want quick format. Again start and let it do its thing. when it is done restart your computer and you should be good to go.

My Lacie driver is no longer acessable


you could send me it lol :)

When you say it gives you a blank window did you leave it for a while - I have to do that with my 500gb hard drive which has a lot of stuff on it and it takes a while to read what it needs to before it shows the files / folders

maybe a defrag if you can get it back up and running and also try it on a different usb port on the back of the same computer it was working on
