The folks over at WD said:



There are no downloadable USB, Firewire, or eSATA drivers available. WD external drives install using the resident USB and Firewire drivers that come in Windows 2000 SP4, XP SP2, Vista, and Mac 10.4 and 10.5. If the drivers are not installing when you connect the WD drive, or you are having driver issues, you will need to contact Microsoft or Apple for their recommendations.

I will search further if you like, just let me know.
Try the old, disconnect (the drive form the computer), reboot, reconnect, reboot once again and see if it picks up the way it was meant to.
Hope this has been of help please leave rating
thank you.

I tried 3 USB cables and one of them worked. Also, if you plug it into a USB hub it may not recognize it either.

External hard disk drive does not appear


Rupert, You may need to install the drivers for that hard drive. Since you didn't mention the type of operating system you're trying to install the hard drive on (PC vs. Mac), make sure the external hard drive meets the operating system requirements.

If this is a USB external hard drive, make sure the USB controller is set to "enabled" in the BIOS

If the hard drive requires an external power source, make sure that its plugged in.

Check the "device manager" settings for any conflicts with the USB controller or with the disk drives- make sure the device is working properly and that it is enabled.

Which external hard drive shall i purchase for the gateway dx4320-01e desktop


Any external USB hard drive will work with your Gateway. Drivers for these USB hard drives are not required unless your Gateway is running with Windows 98.
External USB hard drives come in various disk capacities, select a hard disk with a capacity that suits your requirements

Have WD2500ME-01, was working fine, now no computer will assign it a drive letter, shows up as "USB Mass Storage Drive" in system tray. Have swapped cable, not seen in Disk Management,


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
hope this helps also
click start control panel administrive tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now start or you might tick one box then return after its finished the first repair then return and tick the second box you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive
hope this helps

How do you get the simpletech external hard drive to store information, and how do you know when it is stored?


Plugging in a USB device before installing the driver disk is the most common USB mistake people make.
An external hard drive, driver properly installed, looks just like a normal hard drive in 'My Computer'. Use it like a hard drive.
If you cannot see it in My Computer when it is plugged in (Go ahead, unplug it and reconnect while My Computer is open) then the driver is loaded wrong. A wrong driver needs to be removed with 'Device Manager', the USB drive DISCONNECTED, the driver reinstalled and the device plugged in at the end or when it is asked for by the installer, not windows (unless it does not have an install disk)
Poof, you can see the disk as a hard drive in My Computer.
See 'Device Manager' on the Internet for help with this.

Connect external hard disk IBM travel star 80GB USB port 2


Unless it's windows 98 you don't need a driver. If your computer can't see it, it's probably broken. Try plugging it in to another computer and see if it can see it

I have had to reinstall my operating system and drives but now the Seagate 500 GB external is not recognized. What now?


Are you using eSATA for the External or USB. If it is eSATA you may need to get the respective drivers for your motherboard for it.
