    Go into the device manager, you will probably see alot of yellow questions marks in there. I think alot of drivers were not installed.

How can Western Digital hard disk drives be recognized by third party USB external docking stations?


The format on a disk, will not be relevant of recognition via an USB connector. To connect a drive via USB, the computer must have the correct driver for the hardware you are connecting. Be sure you connect the HD coerce to the external harness and make sure it is supplied with the correct voltages.
When you connect a working system on the USB connector and the drive does not have a format, the computer will see that and ask you if it should format the drive.

How do i get drivers for gemini usb 2.0 external case (sata) actually i have ultra book there is no dvd writer


You don't need drivers for an external usb case.
Your ultra book should recognize the dvd writer once it is installed in the case. It will assign a drive letter to it.

How can i update dell dock?


A docking station is an extension or addition of ports for a laptop computer. Once the portable computer is docked, you can access the docking station's ports, such as PS/2 or USB 2.0 ports, through your computer. Some docking stations have monitors that you can connect your computer to, placing your video on an external screen so you can turn off your computer's monitor and conserve some of your computer's energy. All Dell docking stations will have the same general troubleshooting steps.

Plug your laptop's power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If there is no power going to your laptop from the docking station but it works when the power adapter is plugged into the wall, the docking station is bad and needs to be replaced. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power goes on but your computer doesn't recognizes accessories such as a USB mouse--plugged into the docking station, try a different port on the station. If it works in a different port, the previous USB port is burned out. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power is going through the docking station but no accessories are being recognized, you might have a corrupted docking profile. Undock the computer and dock it again once it has fully started up to reset the docking profile. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If you have an external monitor and it is not working, completely close the lid on the laptop so the image will move to the external monitor. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power is going through the docking station but no accessories are being recognized and resetting the docking profile fails, update all drivers through Dell's support website and then re-dock the computer. Some of the software that runs the hardware may have become corrupted. Hope this helps

Good day I am in need of drivers for an LG external HDD hxd7.Reason being my laptop will not recognise the hdd but sometimes it does.


Hi

You do not say which operating system you are using.

You do not say which type of computer this is (laptop or desktop).

Most operating systems do not need extra drivers to recognize a hard drive. The drivers are almost certainly already built into your operating system to operate almost any hard drive.

It could be a faulty USB port (try a different USB Port) or a faulty USB cable (try a different USB cable).

If the cable and port are not the problem, then either the hard drive itself or the hard drive enclosure are faulty (open the enclosure and test the hard drive in a hard drive dock or another (custom) external hard drive enclosure.

I hope this helps.

I backed up my system and recently lost the hard drive. A new hard drive was installed, and I connected my Verbatim to my PC, but I have no idea how to put all the backed up data back to my PC. Can you...


All you need to do to backup the files on your old hard drive is by using a Hard Drive Docking Station. you can take your hard drive to a local store and ask for a docking station that would fit on your hard drive, the docking station is like a device the you can connect to your computer using a USB cable.
Once you have it, your old hard drive will just function as an external storage device.

Idj2 will not recognize my external hard drive


Also try the second port on the back,
try a USB stick with some songs on it, to see if the USB ports are working. If the USB stick works,
Could be the format the External unit is formatted in. Using FAT32 is recommended, look in the manual (downloadable form numark.com) for supported formats.
Preferrable an external HD, which has its own power supply, not fed by the USB ports on the IDJ2 (max 0.5 A)

regard,
Jack

If you are having issues accessing the drive i've encountered that situation before

I tried a different cord and it started working again. Additionally i've had this work for me (see below)

Try This:


  1. Unplug all USB devices
  2. Turn off Ext Hard drive
  3. Shut down computer
  4. Power on ext hard drive (then wait like 1 min)
  5. Turn on computer
  6. Wait for windows to finish loading
  7. Plug in the USB cord from the ext hard drive to your computer (may take up to a minute for computer to recognize it)
  8. If it doesn't recognize it then keep trying it in different USB ports
If it still won't recognize get all the latest windows update and reboot. If that doesn't solve your issue try your external hard drive on some other computers, check to see if drive needs special drivers installed (which most don't).

From SimpleTech's website: "1) I have the drive plugged in but I cannot find the drive in "My Computer", why?
The most likely cause would be not enough power provided by a single USB port on your computer. Unplug the portable drive from the cable and unplug the cable from the computer. Now, plug the cable into 2 USB ports directly on your computer. (If you have a desktop, you should plug the USB cable directly into the USB ports on the back of the computer. If this is a laptop, you should plug directly into a USB ports on the computer. Do not plug into a USB hub or docking station). Then plug the drive into the cable. In a few seconds you should see the drive listed in the "My Computer" window as a SimpleDrivePS."

If all that fails you need to RMA (Return to Manufacturer) your external hard drive. Most hard drives have a pretty decent warranty on them. Your simpletech 250GB has a 3 year warranty on it. Info on the warranty can be found at http://www.simpletech.com/support/warranty/. If you want to RMA it, click the "Technical Support / RMA Request" on the left hand side of that page.
