The device may be looking for a certain drive letter. Remove all other "removable" devices. Go to the device manager and remove the personal drive, reboot the computer and try installing the personal drive again.

Not recognice by usb hard


A USB hard drive is a portable external storage device that works just like a conventional hard drive.

The device is simply plugged into a USB port on your computer as you would connect a flash drive.


Unlike a flash drive, however, a USB hard drive can store a much larger amount of data.


If your computer will not recognize your USB hard drive, you can try troubleshooting steps to resolve the problem.

Plug one end of the USB cable into the port on your hard drive and plug the other end into the USB port of your computer. Ensure that both ends of the cable are connected securely.


Open "My Computer" (Windows XP) or "Computer" (Windows Vista/7).

The USB device should be listed as "removable disk" once it is plugged into the computer.


If it is not listed among the available drives on your computer, proceed to the next step.

Ensure that the data cable is working properly.


Try another USB cable if you have one available.

Disconnect all other USB devices from the computer as they may interfere with the operating system detecting the external hard drive.

Reboot the computer if the USB hard drive is still not recognized.


Plug the USB cable into another USB port and check to see if the device is detected.

If you are using a USB hub, remove the device and plug the external hard drive directly into a USB port.


If the computer still fails to recognize the device, the external hard drive itself may be experiencing a hardware problem.


Check the status of the hard drive in the "Device Manager" window. Under Windows XP, right click "My Computer" and select "Device Manager."


For Windows Vista and Windows 7, click the "Windows" button in the lower left corner of the screen, then type "Computer Management" in the search bar and press "Enter."


Select "Device Manager" in the "Computer Management" window. In the Device Manager window, click the "+" sign that appears beside "Disk Drives."


If the external drive is not listed, click "Other Devices" in the Device Manager window and see if an "Unknown Device" appears.


The external hard drive may have been detected but the device is not working properly.

If it is still under warranty, take the device to the computer store where it was purchased to have it repaired or replaced.


Hope this helps

I would suspect that Windows is screwing things up, your laptop cdrom drive should be "d" drive and your portable usb drive should be the "e" drive. You could try to change the usb to "e" in disk management, failing that I would reboot the laptop with usb drive connected to see if Windows straighten things out.

HP MINI NO DETTECT HARDDISK


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Right click on "my Computer" and select "Manage" then in the box which appears select "Disk Management. See if you drive is listed in the lower pane of the disk management window. You may be prompted to initialise disk, this may solve your problem, or if the disk is showing then right click and select change drive letter or paths, in the next box select add or change then select a letter from the drop down list andclick ok. Your drive should now show in "My Computer"

Be certain that you are changing the correct drives letter as if you change your boot drive letter you will have lots of problems.

The first thing I'd recommend is to check Disk Management, to see if the computer is detecting is as a hard drive. ( Right click on my computer, hit manage, and under Storage, select 'disk management').
From there you'll be able to see how it's detecting the hard drive.
Even if Device Manager detects it, if Disk Management does not, you know it's not being 'properly' detected.
From Disk Management, you can format the drive, or reassign a drive letter (if needed).

I've had a similar issue where the problem was the power connector to the hard drive. If you have important data on the hard drive, you could open the external case, and attach the hard disk with a separate usb device, such as http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-Details.asp?EdpNo=3276554 . Good Luck.

PXE-E61: media test failure check cable


The PXE-X61 error means that the laptop cannot detect the hard drive. This can be caused by a faulty disk controller, or a faulty disk drive.
1st. Reseat the hard drive and see if the laptop boots up.

2nd. Go into the BIOS configuration and see if the BIOS detects the hard drive.

3rd. If the BIOS can't detect the hard disk, the remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer detects this drive as an external disk drive and you can see the contents of the hard drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is in the laptop.

4th. If the hard drive cannot be detected then the hard drive is faulty, you need to replace the faulty hard drive in your laptop and install Windows to get an operating laptop again.
