Question about HEWLETT-PACKARD HP 1TB USB 3.0 Portable USB 2.0 Hard Drive
HP 1TB USB 3.0 Portable USB 2.0 Hard Drive, driver will not be recognized on 2 computers. has not been dropped or submerged
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

3 beeps its searching for a connected device
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

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
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
