If you run Windows, there's a chance that Windows installed it's own driver for this device. Sometimes you better install the driver of the manufacturer (Hewlet Packard). Try to download it from the HP-site.

If all fails, it might be a hardware-issue, and this makes it a better idea to contact HP for customer-support.

SOURCE: want to install my 2tb

try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this data recovery program called asoftech data recovery to recover your files. you can find it from facebook

Try unplugging from usb and plugging it back in. Also, you may need a SAS driver for your computer to recognize the drive. Some drives have internal encryption and require a driver before the computer recognizes them. Check the Mfg website to see whether this drive requires one.

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

you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps you

Hi there. Here are some solutions you could try 1. Try connecting it with a different USB cable as the present one may be faulty. 2. If you can open the casing, do so to confirm if there is a loose connection. 3. You can try this great application tool from Seagate called Sea Tool. You will need to download and install on your computer. This tool examines you hard drive and lets you know if it is totally damaged. You can download it here. SEATOOL

My laptop doesn't recognize Lacie Rikiki Go 1TB. I have USB 2.0; and I couldn't find the drive in the Computer folder. Please help.


Hello roblau99:
First lets try this. Shutdown your laptop and reboot. Once your up and running, plug in your portable hard drive. You might try a different USB port. If windows doesn't let you know its there then you need to look for it by going into your administration tools menu. Of course this depends on what version of windows your are running, if it is windows.
Maybe you can answer this? Have you been disconnecting that hard drive without telling windows you are going to disconnect it first? If the answer is yes you may have corrupted that drive which is why windows is not recognizing it.
Good Luck and just let me know if you need more help.
Sincerely, Peter N.
