Re: i dont find it

First, have you tried it in another computer? Take a look here, problems with other external hard disk drives are explained- unfortunately they don't suggest any easy fixes. These external drives, according to this site, and my own limited experience, are merely a standard drive in a housing with the proper adaptive circuitry for USB/Firewire connection. It looks like your unit uses a drive more like what would be found in a laptop, where others use what is used in a standard desktop computer. One possibility: open the housing, check the connections to the drive. I've seen one drive where the IDE interface cable wasn't seated properly. If what the above link explains is the problem with your drive, a simple solution looks bleak. You could try some of the diagnostic software available on the 'net. I'm sorry no easy fixes are provided.

My new pc cant seem to recognise my external hard drive I dont want to have to reformat as there is a lot of data i dont want to lose

Hi, Thanks for using fixya.

1. Right click on My Computer choose manage. On the left side make sure storage is expanded double click disk management on the left upper side see if transcent is listed.

2. If it is on the lower part find your transcent right click on it choose change drive letter and paths. Click on change, you will see a drop down arrow click that choose the first available letter, Now click on change. Open My Computer see if it is now listed.
3. Reboot your computer when it comes back,open My Computer see if it is now listed.

HDS72505 0KLAT80 USB Device recognised by Vista but the two partitions/drives are said to be unknown devices Any help?

Make SURE you dont' have any data on the drive that is important (or you have a good back up) Click "COmputers" and "manage" you will need to initialize the drive for VIsta to recognize it.

Usb not recognized

if you use it on win 95 or win 98 or vista you need specfic drivers for you usb disk
if you get this on win xp please change the usp ports and use another port to insert the disk one of the ports has to recognise.
if the problem persists the usb port controllor on motherboards needs to be checked for faults or uninstalled drivers ,
if nothing works try a pci to usb internal card and dont forget to loaad drivers . this card has 3 to 6 ports for usb

Trekstor Storage device

I have an answer on how to fix the Trekstor Datastation "Removable Disk" problem.

I also own a Trekstor Datastation 500GB and had the same problem even though it worked for several months then all of a sudden when I tried to hook it up to another computer, it stopped working. It would recognize the USB connection but you could not read the drive as it would say "Removable Disk".

In "Device Manager" it recognizes the drive as Sundata USB2SATA. But what it really should be is "WDC WD50 00AAVS-32ZTB0 USB Device" or something similar to that. For those that are wondering, yes, the hard drive is a Western Digital Hard Drive. Western Digital Caviar to be exact.

Solution: You need to open the cover to the hard drive and reconnect the hard drive to the connector on the board. It's that simple!

It is very loose and this model is not well designed so it can easily come off if you accidentally knock over your hard drive or move it to another location. The hard drive is held in place by screws on a holder where there is room for the screws to slide if the screws are not tight enough.

You'll need a T10 screwdriver bit to remove the cover and a Phillips screwdriver to adjust the hard drive.

NOTE: Doing this will probably voids your warranty but trust me, it works and it's really easy and quick to do. Took me 15 minutes.
