Try a different brand, depend on when the CD was made, some of the Verbatim CD are no good for any reader.
the laser in the newer CD or DVD reader is mroe sensetive than before, any defect or coating defect will render the disk unusable.

My pc doesn't recognize my verbatim 1000gb external hard drive, error "unknown device"


Did the 1000gb external hd come with instructions?
Did you read them?
Did you Install The Software for this Device?

If not. Try plugging it in all the usb ports.
Try shutting down the PC, when it's off plug in the 1000gb external HD,
Restart the Computer, If Windows still dosen't recognize it, then it's most likely defective, and should be returned. Try purchasing a higher quality brand.

I have an external hard drive back up, Verbatim, Model USB320 and my computer does not recognize it being attached.


Hello

A few questions that may confirm problem.
Does your computer seem to know that something is plugged in?
Or does it say that it does not recognize the device?

Well, if the computer actually knows that a device has been plugged in, but you just cannot see the device in my computer, here is how you fix that. Just follow these steps:
Control panel
Administrative tools
Computer management
Storage
Disc management

Now you should see your device presented in the schematic below.
Right click on the device and assign a new drive letter.

If your computer states that it does not recognize the device, try plugging it in one of the back USB ports of the computer. Please rate this.

Best regards

Verbatim portable hard drive not recognized by XP - works in 2000


Restart XP and connect e/hd and it should pick it up. Some systems are plain lazy after a while, so manually install it.

New verbatim 160gb usb external hard drive model # USB160 isnt recognized by my pc.


I had a simliar problem. This is how I fixed it in XP;

Remove any attached external devices except the one having the
problem.

Go to:
1. Control Panel
2. Administative Tools
3. Computer Management
4. Under Storage right click on "Disk Mangement"
5. The bad drive should show up as Disk 1 with a black bar across
the top.
6. Right click on the bar.
7.Select " change drive letter and paths " and follow the instructions.
8. If number 7 does not work, go back to the menu and select
"Format". During the FORMAT I believe you will be asked to assign
a drive letter.
9. GOOD LUCK

I acutally had this problem with two different drives. I fixed the first one using the instructions above. But the second drive didn't even show up in Disk Management. I had to return it for a new one.
