SOURCE: when I connect my transcend

This could be a couple things since it's an external HDD. Here's what I would try:

  1. Try another port
  2. Try another cable
  3. Remove the drive from the external case and plug it in to the MAC directly if possible. If not possible, get another external case for it (they're not expensive these days)
  4. If you still do not get the drive to come up after that, then you might want to give SpinRite a try. http://www.grc.com - it costs $89, but it is a tool everyone should have around in my opinion.

    Keep in mind that new drives are cheap. a 2 TB hdd will run you about as much as SpinRite. But getting a new drive will NOT recover your data of course. So if that data is important to you, see if you can recover it with SpinRite, the team over at GRC is awesome when it comes to support as well.

SOURCE: My computer doesn't recognize my

1. Try a different USB port. If other ports recognize it, then the original port is fried. 2. Try a different computer. If the other computer does not recognize it, then your flash drive is damaged.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: Why doesn't my Verbatim "clip


click start right click on computer select properties then device manager scroll to universal serial bus controllers if you se a yellow question exclamation mark ? ! or a red X you will need to update/reinstall drivers right click select update drivers
once inserted windows 7 should automatically install the drivers
if you computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it

if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
if this fails to fix the problem check the usb leads inside your computer usually

usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems for a computer and its parts
hope this helps you

SOURCE: My toshiba external harddrive usb 3.0 won't work


click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems also make sure the computers Ram and Cmos battery are securely seated
if this fails to fix the problem

hope this helps you

SOURCE: Mac doesn't read the drive. Time Machine reads

The disk was mounting intermittently. Then I messed around with the firewire and noticed that if I pushed it a certain way, the disk would mount. So I got out the USB cable and power cable that came with the LaCie and plugged that in. Problem solved. Mounted instantly, backed up with Time Machine perfectly. So, check your connection. I am going to contact LaCie and get another Firewire cable as that is what I paid for, but in the meantime the USB will cover me.

My hp v250w 8gb pendrive not working


First DO NOT plug it in to any devices until you have totally dried it out...Some have kept their phones buried in rice for a week or so, but you have to have it totally dry or it will short out and will not work, or it may cause data loss too...

Useing Hard drive on a Mac computer(Hard drive Isn't showing up on computer)


It could be that it's either not partitioned properly, or if you've used it before it might not have been ejected properly the last time it was disconnected.

Some drives that say they are Mac compatible must be partitioned for Mac before they become accessible. Based on the brief description that's the only advise I can offer at this time.

Can't find CD icon is missing from one computer


Windows Key-E will bring up windows explorer which should show your list of available drives.
If this doesn't show your CD drive then try removing CD from drive. Does the disc tray open? If so then reboot system without disc and try the above method to find cd-drive.
If this doesn't work you may need to involve more hands on trouble-shooting.
Thanks

When I turn on my 2 terabyte LaCie DD3US external hard drive, disk appears to rotate but I get a red light along with the blue, and clicking noises, and the drive's icon doesn't show on my iMac...


If the device doesn't show up in Mac System Profiler at all or as an unknown device:
The symptoms indicate there is a problem with the drive, how it is connected, or with the computer used for troubleshooting. The next best step is to change physical variables, and find a simpler problem than a broken product.
  • Change the data cable (USB, FireWire, Ethernet, etc.) A failure in the cable can cause this issue.
  • Change the external power supply or cable. If possible, obtain another power cabling to see if the problem is in that component. On drives that are powered via USB or Firewire, try using the included power sharing cable and connect it to another port.
  • Change the computer you are using. Computer problems can manifest themselves in many ways. Even if the computer appears to be working properly, this is a worthwhile test. Try it on a friend's computer and see if it works fine.
If the tests above don't help, it's possible that the drive was either dropped while running, had a hard drive 'head crash' or the circuitry inside the drive is fried.
Hope this helps!

I formatted a hp personal media drive 150 gb for a mac book pro because i needed to backup all my files using time machine. after I reinstalled my files (I no longer need the back up file) I tried to use...


Right click on "my Computer" and select "Manage" then in the box which appears select "Disk Management. See if you drive is listed in the lower pane of the disk management window. You may be prompted to initialise disk, this may solve your problem, or if the disk is showing then right click and select change drive letter or paths, in the next box select add or change then select a letter from the drop down list andclick ok. Your drive should now show in "My Computer"

Be certain that you are changing the correct drives letter as if you change your boot drive letter you will have lots of problems.

I pluged in wrong power supply to external hardrive there is a light flashing so there is power but my laptop cannot find drive can i retrieve my data


The drives in these units are pretty standard SATA or PATA drives.
Personally, to retrieve data in these situations, since it's the USB converter board that is likely damaged, I open up the box and take out the drive, and put it into a PC that's running MACDrive (software that lets a PC use a MAC formatted drive)
You may however simply be able to get another external drive enclosure (about $20 USD such as THESE) and put the drive into it and be up and running again on the MAC with the old drive in the new enclosure.
