It is entirely possible that your external hard drive is failing. I would recommend downloading Seatools for Windows (link below) and run extended hard drive test on it. Chances are if it is failing, it still recognizes within the system, but it is not readable enough for windows to display it and allow you to browse.

Not recognized


This may not be the external hard drive issue. Check your USB driver, under device manager. You might need to upgrade the driver. If you plug your external to another computer, you will see that is it working ok. Just re-installing XP might have not installed USB drive properly.

External Cavalry drive is no longer recognized by Windows XP Professional.


Microsoft has a fix for external hard drives. It involves a registry change to accomodate USB peripherals. Hope this solves your issue. Good Luck!

Acomdata external harddrive is not recognize on vista


I had a similar issue with windows 2008 and windows 7. the drive lost all its info and had to be reinitialized under both of those O.S.'s..
You can try that as long as it doesn't have any data you need.. Once you do that the drive will work and you can start using it. The file system under vista and above is slightly different than xp.
