Question about Passport Computers & Internet
I keep trying the wires I have, and once in a while, the Disk opens. It contains all my Music.
You may first want to try disconnecting any other USB devices, to guarantee that the drive is the only power-drawing device. Drives typically need all 500 mA that a USB port normally provides.
Cables do wear out, especially those handled often. Mini-USB cables are pretty common and can easily be replaced.

click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
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,
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
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
