If any computer don't detect it, then its broken! You may take it to nearest computer repair center and see if there is anything to fix.

Best wishes,

My portable toshiba 500GB HD drive cant be detected by the computer. You hear the click sound my times like its trying to access it but nothing shows. Also the light is blinking.


That's the click of death - the actual hard disk inside the drive is damaged. The disk is dead, unfixable. Either just buy a complete new unit or dismantle it and replace the actual hard disk with a new one.

500 gb portable harddisk not detected in my computer


Hi,

You most likely require a driver for your hard disk to be able to communicate with your computer. This driver may sometimes install when you connect your hard drive to your computer or the drivers may come in a CD with your hard drive. Please check whether you have a CD with the drivers that came with your hard drive. If not please comment

Goodluck!

I have a 320gb toshiba external hard drive, i've been using it around 3 years without any trouble. A few days ago i lost the cable connecting it to the PC. I bought a few cables but no use. Doesn't...


Hi there,

This is because there is a connection problem between the external drive and the computer. If you have changed cables to no avail, you can open the casing of the external drive where you will find the hard disk inside. Unplug the two cables connected to the harddisk and replug it after a minute. Then try again. If it still does not work, then you need to buy just a usb enclosure and plug the harddisk there to be able to use it again.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

Usb port detected but i cannot access the portable hdd because there is no displayed ickon of hdd in the my computer page


Is this on a Windows system?
If so, try right-clicking the My Computer icon, and in the popup menu select Manage. This will bring up computer management, where you can go to disk management. In disk management check if you see the drive, if it has a partition and drive letter.
See here for more ideas and details.

New external harddisk cant be detected on my computer


Since you have not given any specifications about model of your HDD hence I'd consider your HDD connects through USB. Your USB driver is old you shall consider upgradation.

Reformat seagate 120gb portable harddisk - freeagent


Hi johnsil,

If the drive shows up in MY COMPUTER then the easy way to format the drive is right-clicking on it then choosing FORMAT. This will erase everything in the drive, so make sure to back up everything in the drive before formatting it.

Now if the drive doesn't show up in MY COMPUTER you may have to goto the Control Panel click on Administrative Tools then select Computer Management then click on the category of "STORAGE", you should see there Disk Management. Carefully look there for your Seagate 120GB Freeagent drive, right-click then choose format, and that should format the drive.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)
