Dose it show up as drive letter E:/ underdevice manager in disk drives?(Check out:right clicking my computer icon onyour desktop,select disk manager)
If so,try right clicking on my computer and selecting map network drive.(You'llget the same results by right clicking on network neighborhood icon on yourdesktop and selecting map network drive.)This is the method many people use toassign a drive name (i.e.,letter) to a drive.
How about asking you to format it before you can use it?Then you can recover data from hard drive with datarecovery software like Tenorshare Data Recovery.It can recover data afterdeeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data.

Hi I am trying to download skype 5.5 free version and it is not going past skypetm -Install window.. I hv tried to wait for almost an hour but nothing has worked so far.. Will appreciate help solving the...

Maybe you need some hard disk space and Skype requires at least 256 MB of RAM and 18 MB of free hard-disk space for installation files. Try to delete some of your files that are not necessary especially images. To find out how much free disk space is on your computer:

  • Open your "My Computer" folder by clicking the icon on your desktop. If you do not have a shortcut on your desktop, open your "Start" menu and right-click on the "My Computer" icon.

  • 2 Right-click on your hard drive icon. Generally, the hard drive is named the C: drive. Select the "Properties" option from the drop-down menu.

  • 3 Read the pie chart and accompanying information to determine how much free disk space your hard drive has. Windows operating systems use blue to indicate how much disk space you are using and purple to depict how much free space is available.

  • If you have enough space, try to download SKYPE

    If this would help you please don't forget to give rating.

    If you don't have the Trekstor, then just delete that ICON (the one that causes the problem when you click on it).

    Or, find the Trekstor, and connect it to your computer, and click the ICON.

Next, in the Devices with Removable Storage (1)below is the "Secondary" Drive, this will be the (CD or DVD Drives (D:), for "External Drives" the drives locations will be (E: or F:). 3. "If the CD, or DVD Drive is present in this area?" Right click to open, select the Properties "icon" the window opens; in the "All disk drives" (block), select, and "highlight" the CD or DVD Drive, next click on the Propertie's button below! 4. In the Device Status (block), see: if the device is "working properly?" Next, click on the Drives button, select to "Update Drivers." Note: The computer screen may "blink' (3-5 times), this means the update has taken place, Click on the "Apply and OK buttons, to finish. "You may be ask to "Restart the computer, if not? Restart the computer." *The "Second" area is the "All Programs" in the Start Menu, scroll to find: Media Disk Player. Select to open, click on "Setup, and Install."

Open the "Contol Panel" go to, and select Hardware and Sound, in the next window, click to open the Device Manager; scroll to find: DVD/CD-ROM drives. Click to open; do the same as above instructions, step by step. "Did this solution help? If so, Helpful Ratings Feedback is appreciated, thanks paul7of9"

    Error Message

    If you want to check hard drive space, open my computer and select the details view. OR right click on the drive icon and pick 'properties'

    Freeing up space can be tricky. Use the disk cleanup utility first.
    Start/Run/Accessories/System Tools/Disk Cleanup. The only caution is "don't compress files!!!"

    Then it's a matter of deleting old documents [I back mine up to CD before deleting.] pictures, videos, etc. You can also add space by adding a hard drive and moving big files, like videos, to it.
