Hi i bought 160GB 2 years ego now suddenly after 100 times when i was connecting my portable hard to PC i realized WD icon didn't show on "my computer" although "found new hardware "...


The hard drive may be corrupted and you need to format it to made it useable again.
Formatting the hard drive will delete the data on the hard disk.

Computer wont recognize the harddrive


It might be the case that the External HDD is not formatted correctly with proper file format. If you are using Windows XP right click on My Computer icon on desktop -> Properties. This will open Computer Management, there click on Disk Management and search for you device, click on the device and format it correctly and it might solve your problem. For other OS version search for Disk Management and then format the External HDD correctly.
Give your feedback here.

New verbatim 160gb usb external hard drive model # USB160 isnt recognized by my pc.


I had a simliar problem. This is how I fixed it in XP;

Remove any attached external devices except the one having the
problem.

Go to:
1. Control Panel
2. Administative Tools
3. Computer Management
4. Under Storage right click on "Disk Mangement"
5. The bad drive should show up as Disk 1 with a black bar across
the top.
6. Right click on the bar.
7.Select " change drive letter and paths " and follow the instructions.
8. If number 7 does not work, go back to the menu and select
"Format". During the FORMAT I believe you will be asked to assign
a drive letter.
9. GOOD LUCK

I acutally had this problem with two different drives. I fixed the first one using the instructions above. But the second drive didn't even show up in Disk Management. I had to return it for a new one.
