While USB drives are 'hot-pluggable' Windows doesn't always do what is advertised (i.e. Plug and PRAY). Try leaving the drive plugged in and rebooting the PC, it may find it that way and install a fresh driver for it.

Windows 8 x64 doesn0t show usb flash drive in windows explorer


It will only show USB devices that have been formatted. Have you tried going into the Computer Management, Disk Management to see if the usb drive is recognized? Can another windows PC recognize the USB drive?

Computer doesnt recognize drive


Try a different usb port on the computer. Maybe the usb port you are using is bad.

Try the portable drive on another computer and see if it is recognized. If not, the portable drive might be defective.

Try to format your USB Drive if that is not formatted yet. On your my computer you will see the USB drive right click on it then click reformat after reformat the computer will now recognize the available size of your device. Because if that the first time you to plug in a computer, the computer will not recognize if your USB is NFTS format or a FAT32 format.

My computer is not recognizing my LaCie external hardrive


First cehck whether your computer is able to recoznize other USB storage devices or not. If you see that it is not recoznizing other USB storage devices. Then you need go to your Boot Up screen, the screen that opens when you restart your PC.

Then go to the USB section and enable USB drive.

If this also does not resolve your problem, then try installing USB drivers on your PC, You can install them from the website : http://www.softwarepatch.com/tips/usb2-driver.html

I hope this resolves your problem.

Plug my camera into the usb port, computer doesnt recognize it


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
