This sounds like physical head or disk damage. Take it to a recovery expert. Not fixable by software.

SOURCE: my transcend external hard disc is not detecting in my computer




click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X


you will need to update/reinstall drivers

right click to reinstall drivers


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,



if you can see your usb drive but its not working

ports (com&lpt) right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem


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 to a computer and its parts


if this fails to fix the problem


you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap


hope this helps

I dropped my transcend storejet d2 now it refuses to read yet the computer can recognise it has been connected


The reason behind your drive is being not recognized by your is computer is that your drive has experienced physical damage due to mechanical stress. And now the important thing is that don't tamper much with your drive and if the data stored in the drive is very important then consult a data recovery specialist.

The drive is making a funny clicking noise. Imac doesn't see the drive.


The funny clicking noise you are hearing is usually from a mechanical failure within the hard drive. The drive will need to be replaced at this point. If the drive is still under warranty you will want to process an RMA.

Is it an external drive?

If it is, open the external hard drive cover, remove the hard disk inside, and fix it back. Try again and let's see what happens.

If it still does not work, insert the external drive into the computer, feel the hard drive if it spins/vibrate from inside or if it makes a cracking noise.

If it spins/vibrate, it means the hard disk is still working. In that case, you have to get another external drive case/cover.

But if it makes cracking noise, then it means the hard drive is damaged and you need to get another one.

Lastly, if its not an external drive, the same applies because, its still all about hard drive.

I wish you all the best.

Storejet 2.5 makes noise and does not recognize one partition


Delete the partition is being unrecognized by the system and then create a new partition and format it. About the noise your drive, try to relax your drive, try not to use it for a several hours and then plug it back. Format your entire drive but be sure that you back-up all the contents of it.

Printer making funny noise and print is almost peeling off the page on the right side


Your problem is with the fixing film in the fuser assembly (HP Part #RM1-3044). The brown material you see is the plastic film ripping and peeling off of the hheating element.
