Question about Computers & Internet
I have 40gb usb hard disk its detected in task bar but not showing is patition and there data
Please give some more details on the machine and OS u are using, sounds
like you have got windows installed and the external harddisk is being
recognized as an unknown hardware device.
you may face following problems:
- either you need special drivers for it suiting to the windows version u are using(google!)
- or your PC still has only the 1.1 USB ability
but the external hd is 2.0 USB and that's producing trouble
in windows XXX:
-make sure you are logged in as an administrator
-then you may try to find the harddisk using the windows explorer or
-left-click'start' goto 'system' then 'hardware'. double-click now and perform a search for new hardware
- does windows find the harddisk now?
- let it install the drivers, unplug usb-device, reboot, reconnect and now it can be found like any other harddrive
good luck - if still facing the problem, please post another request on fixya and give more details on your pc and the harddisk..
