SOURCE: Unable to install IOMEGA HDD on Vista Home Premium

Vista may require drivers that are not preinstalled. If the drive clearly works on one machine, but not another, its safe to pressume its not the drive. On the VISTA machine, go to the Iomega site and download the driver for vista or usb or whatnot.

SOURCE: maxtor 3200 usb hard drive with windows vista home premium

Hey guys I had the same problem... All the drivers for the device are inside the harddrive. Maxtor doesn't have any because you don't need any. What they've neglected to let any of us know is the power supply provided with the unit isn't powerful enough to run it. Replace the original power supply with another one and this will solve the problem. I replaced mine with an old laptops power supply, the fit was alittle tight but believe me it works.

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

if this fails to fix the problem

Have just been given the Toshiba Hard Drive PX1396U-3T01, number 2978109s. No install instructions, or paperwork. He is now overseas. How do I install the HD, or get a driver?


Your Toshiba PX1396U-3T01 external HDD is USB-attached, so you'll need to acquire a
standard USB cable to accomplish the physical layer attachment. USB cables do not have
the same connector at each end - the system (computer) end has a USB "A" connector (flat-shaped), and the device end (HDD) has a USB "B" connector (square-ish shaped).

There is no software (driver) needed for this external HDD - support for USB-attached external
drives (either HDD or flash drives) is built into WinXP, WinVista and Win7.

IF your version of MSwindows doesn't want to recognize the Toshiba when you plug it in, try
START > Run > then type in "diskmgmt.msc"

then select the command "Rescan disks."

If you're running Mac OS or Linux, repost including your OS (operating system) info.

Installed 2T Hitachi drive with controller as secondary drive. Devices show both working correctly. But XP doesn't recognize it. How do I get XP to recognize it?


This problem can easily be fixed. It is caused by your HDD not being formatted. Go to Start> Right click on "my computer" and select manage from the box that pops up. In the window that pops up then, click on Storage > Disk management on the left hand side. Then right click on the drive you installed, and click format. You should probably format as NTFS.

Sometimes, recent hardwares (laptop components) don't have its drivers for XP1 & 2. (It conflicts.)
Try with XP3. Otherwise, you have to reinstall win7 and run win XP virtually under win7.

I am trying to replace my HD in my Acer aspire 5520 from 160GB (Hitachi of 5400 rpm and 8 MB) to 500GB (Hitachi of 7200 rpm and 16 MB). Acer sent the recovery cd. I used an enclosure hard drive to format...


first ..Im not sure I understood how you installed windows on the new Hdd..but I sow that you didn't do it in the laptop ..
the correct way is to see if the laptop is seeing the Hdd..and to install the windows directly on the hard disk installed into the laptop ...by using boot-able installation disk with the operation system ..Cause if you install it on another device ..or other way ..it will not recognize the devices present on the laptop ..and most likely to give you a blue screen ..and errors like the one you just got ..
Another thing ..you have to go to bios settings ..advanced st-up ..most likely ..and see the Hdd in there ..and on its settings to disable the AHCI function ..cause if you do not have a disk with sata drivers ..the laptop with the AHci function enabled will not see the hard disk ..and this is the error and what it means ...basically it didnt found the boot device ..cause of this function probably enabled in bios..It is not hard to disable ..just press F2 on start up ..and go to BIOS settings ..and look for the feature that allow you to see the Hdd and disk drive ..and set them u ..it is either the device .or the advanced settings..Im not remembering exactly ..its the second or the 3rd feature..and in there you will find a function named...AHCI...this have to be disabled in order that the laptop to see and function with the HDD ..otherwise it will say that the HDD is missing or the boot device is not present ..
