If the drive is not showing in My Computer you will need to assign a drive letter to the drive. The link below will show you how to do this.

I have Windows XP. I connected the hard drive according to the directions and the first message read USB device not recognized. The second message read Try reconnecting. If windows does not recognize it...


If it is a desktop computer, try connecting to one of the rear USB ports. sometimes drives won't be recognized properly from a secondary USB or HUB. If it's a notebook go into control panel and see if you can find and delete unknown devices in hardware then attach and see if it connects. XP should not need a driver install.

My pc now recognizes the drive as a local drive, but the drive cannot be read. Is it possible to restore the drive without deleting the files on it? They are some extremely important.


There are several things to try:
1) Disconnect all USB devices and restart the computer. Then plug in your external Hard Drive. In some cases, this has worked to enable external devices as there's a conflict between some USB devices. Once working, you can add any other USB devices you have.
2) Since the drive is recognized by XP, right click on it and if you have access to Tools, try to check the volume for errors. It may ask you to reboot and do a scan disk on startup. Sometimes although the computer recognizes the volume, it hasn't sufficient information as to how to access it. Running a scan disk can cure that problem.
3)Re-assign the drive letter; Occasionally XP can't access a path to the external drive; if it assigns a letter, in turn it will gain access
Change Drive Letter
The link above provides step by step instructions to change the drive letter
4) Run Windows Update and install SP3; Service Pack 3 addresses issues with external devices that weren't fixed in either SP1 or SP2
I do hope one of these answers provides a solution to your problem. Please post back with any other questions or just to let me know how you made out. Unfortunately, you have a common problem but no one FIX has been identified by Windows to solve it.
Best of luck!

WD Elements USB drive not recognized


Try going to Disk Management and see if they show up there.

  1. Click Start
  2. Right Click My Computer
  3. Click Manage
  4. Click Disk Management
If your computer is recognizing a mass storage device they should show up in disk management and you can just assign them a drive letter.

Vista stops recognizing external hard drive


This doesn't sound like an OS issue. This appears to be more an issue of the connection to the hard drive. The USB cable likely isn't the culprit, nor the laptop USB inputs. If the drive was ever dropped or the cable gets removed and reattached often to the actual enclosure, you might be looking at a bad port on the enclosure. This isnt a lost cause. You can always buy a hard drive enclosure from newegg and move the drive from the IOMEGA to the new enclosure. You can get a new enclosure for $15. Just because the USB port is bad, it doesnt mean the data is gone and the hard drive cant be used.

Icant see my usb flash drive in my computer


You can try this out:
After powering up your system, and you have plugged the flash drive, then Right-Click on my computer icon, select manage, then go to Disk Management Option.
On the Disk management option Page you should see ALL the drives installed on your system, including the hidden ones, so what you will just do is, try and locate the one representing your flash drive, and right click on it. then select "Change Drive letter and Paths", and give the drive any new, unique letter (i.e alphabet) different from the ones already on your system, and click on OK.
This should make your Flash Drive to be detected automatically.
Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck!
