Re: connect dk23fb-40 ext in front usb

You cannot usually by just the electronics. I would check places like ebay or ask Hitachi about it. The other way would be if you could find someone throwing out one of the drives where something else is bad.

My computer don't see mt toshiba 500 GB external disk. I had Win XP with SP3 and my external disk is connected to a USB hub with 8 ports. I had a pen connected to that hub and the computer see it. But...

Your USB hub cannot provide enough power for your external hdd, you can try to plug it in directly to any free USB port for the mean time to check if its detected or not, if it has a power button ( which is not normal for regular USB powered EXT HDD) make sure that it is on, if its still not working try to use a different cable, a known good cable or plug it in to a different computer to check if its your USB port, or the usb cable or the ext hdd that is causing the issue

Hope this help.

Hi. My computer says I ejected my WD My Passport external drive but it was not properly ejected. How can I fix this. I need all my thesis files but computer can read the external drive! Help please!

Try to test your WD Ext HDD to a different computer and check if you will get the same problem.

If the same problem persist try to use a different cable for your WD Ext HDD.

If still fails kindly ask the store where you bought the WD Ext HDD on how to retrieve your files and have WD EXT HDD replaced?

If your WD Ext HDD works to a different computer then update the BIOS and Chipset of the computer where your WD Ext HDD connected previously.

Hope this helps.

Ext hdd wd3200me does not detect on my com.. Its using intergrated usb controller method..any suggestions..

Update the drivers for the communication. You can download from the manufacture's website of the EXT hdd.
They are usually under the download or support tab.
Just down the drivers, double-click on the file to install them into your pc, then restart pc then connect.
