SOURCE: My Passport Drive is no longer recognized by windows

Check to see if the drive is available in disk management, if so and it's got a blue bar at the bottom, try changing the drive letter. If not, try the following:

Normally with the passport drives, you receive a shorter USB cable (this is because the drive relies on power from the PC, which your normal length USB cannot offer sufficiently. If you are using a short cable, try connecting the drive to the back of your desktop PC, this generates more power than the ports on the front (the ports on the front are actually hubs). If none of these options work try it on another PC, using the steps above.

If you still have an issue, the drive has most likely failed and you will need to get data recovery done to retrieve your data. If you do so, contact samsung for warranty information, so that your warranty doesn't become void.

You can try full formatting the harddisk and run scandisk and defragment the disk.Hope this would solve your problem.

Sure, you can recover your data. but you have to rely on some data recovery program. You can try Card Data Recovery. Justinstall this program on your computer and use the function "allrecovery", after a while your deleted files will be back soon.

SOURCE: My Samsung 1.5 TB external

A clicking sound for samsung drive is most like due to faulty heads and the only way to recover data off it is to perform a head swap. You need to buy a compatible donor online like ebay. If you don't know how to do this, i suggest you send it to data recovery company, as this is a very dangerous procedure. It can cause severe damage on your hard drive if you perform it without any knowledge and the right tools to do it.

hope it helps.

How to fix my external hard drive not detected?


If a replacement usb adapter doesn't fix it, your hard drive has failed and usually not recoverable.

External drive not picked up on computer


External hard drives not only provide additional storage space on a computer system but also allow data to be conveniently transported from one computer to another.


These drives typically plug right in to a port on the computer and function without any additional setup; however, if you are running into trouble where your external hard drive is not being detected, you must troubleshoot the situation to determine why the drive appears to be missing.


Check the USB connection running from the hard drive to your computer.

If the USB cable is not seated securely in the port, the computer will not detect the external drive.


Disconnect the USB cable from the computer and plug it into a different USB port. Occasionally, a USB port will fail to function with some hardware and changing the USB connection may correct this issue.


Switch from a USB to a Firewire cable connection, if possible.

The USB port on the hard drive may have died; if so, changing to a Firewire connection will resolve this issue.


Install the driver for the external device from the installation disc provided with the product. Older computer systems may require you to manually install this driver.


After inserting the installation CD, follow the prompts from the installation wizard to install the driver on your computer.


Restart the computer.

If you connected the external drive while the computer is powered down, it may not recognize the device when you turn on the computer.


After restarting the computer, connect the external drive to the system.

The drive should now be detected by your operating system.


Connect the external hard drive to a power source and then plug it into your PC computer using a USB or Firewire cable.


Log on to your PC computer using an account with administrative privileges.

Open the Start menu and click on the "Control Panel" icon.


Open the "Administrative Tools" folder and then double-click on the "Computer Management" icon.


Select "Disk Management" from the list of options on left side of the window.


Right-click on the drive you want your computer to recognize and select "Change Drive Letter and Paths."


Select a drive letter for the external hard drive to be recognized as and click "OK."

The drive will now appear in My Computer.


Hope this helps.

External Hard disk is not detecting on my desktop PC


Try a different usb port. Maybe a 1TB external hd is too big for your old computer to recognize. Old computers cannot handle a drive that large.

Good Day Daniellevion!

Have you seen a hard disk inside your computer? That is exactly what is inside in an external drive.

You mentioned that you dropped the external drive once, and that could be the reason why your computer was unable to recognized it as external drive.

Danielle! The connectors of the hard disk inside the Samsung External Drive (or other term is hard disk enclosure) might be loosened.

If you can open the enclosure and expose the two connectors, disconnect them and reseat properly.

That might fix it!
