    Can you see the hard drive in Device Manager or Disk Management?

    Is the HDD partitioned to be recognized by your OS (operating system)?

Look under administrative tools for computer management, and then disk management. you have to mount the hard drive from within disk management

My toshiba external hard drive won't be opened


Some external storage devices work poorly or not at all when connected to a hub; try connecting the drive directly to a port on the computer. Also check if it's detected in "Disk Management". Here you can verify if the partition and format are correct for the Operating System. Check the Drive's status in Device manager. This will verify if the external drive has a drive letter designation. Check Partition and Format. Log in as Administrator account in windows or any other account with administrative privileges Insert your removable disk into the USB port. Click Start, right click on computer and select manage. Now, click Disk Management. Check whether drive letter for the device is present. Check the lower window to find whether the device is detected (such as Disk 1, Disk 2, etc). If the device is detected with a drive letter, verify that no other device is using that drive letter. If it is, change it to unused drive letter. Hope this helps.

HP laptops are well known for motherboard issues, and will usually involve a replacement board, at this point have it checked before a decision is made.

Hello my hard drive quit working. It say it working properly but won;t show up on my computer can u help


Hello Klpook, Hi, 1. scan your PC with an antivirus software, if the action failed to work, 2. use another PC to check if your Hard drive is good. if the other PC failed to detect you hard drive. 3. Use Hard drive utilities, such as Disk manager for Western Digital to diagnose your HD. If by chance no positive work is done. Your drive is bad.

My hard drive doesn't show up


If the external hard drive is not detected by yur computer, try first connecting the drive on a different USB port so we can test the USB port and then after that if still not yet detected try a different USB cable to test the cable and after that still not detected connect the drive on different computer so we can see if this is already a hardware problem.....

Cannot get external hard drive to work


- Make sure that the hard drive (HD) is properly connected to the computer.

- Try connecting it to a different computer to make sure that the HD is the problem.

- Check the Disk Management in your computer to see if the HD could still be detected. Once detected, reformat the HD and it should work again.

To check the Disk Management:

NOTE: Make sure that the external HD is connected and turned ON.

1. Right-click "My Computer" (XP) or "Computer" icon (Vista)
2. Select Manage and click on "Disk Management".
3. From the Disk Management, you will see a drive letters
4. Write down all the drive letters and then disconnect the Maxtor HD from the computer.
5. If there's a drive letter that disappears, then that is your Maxtor HD.
6. Reconnect the Maxtor HD and reformat it. You may right-click the drive letter and there's an option to format the HD.

If you're hearing a clicking sound while the HD is turned on, mostly, it's already defective.

Have a great day!

My hard disk do not detects by the machine.


Hi,

Thanks for using fixya.

If your computer doesn't detect the hard drive, its possible that:

1. There is a problem with the data cable for the hard drive. Change the SATA cable or IDE cable.

2. Power connection to the Hard drive might be loose. Make sure its connected properly.

3. The hard drive may be bad already. The best way to find out is to try and connect it to a different computer.

4. Its also possible that the port on the motherboard is already bad but this seldom happens.

Does not show up in my computer but does in bios


Can you boot the computer from a boot floppy?
If so, try and partition and format the drive with fdisk and format.

have you ever tried of inserting it to other computers?

If it is still not detected, one way or another, it could be your flash drive is already not working.
Maybe the last time you have defragmented it causes the drive to be destroyed for some reasons such as computer hardware problem.

If it is now detected, check if you can still recover the data. Your last option will be to format your drive so you can start new. Im sorry but in my experience you cannot anymore recover the data if it is already gone.
