Has the hard drive been formated?
To format the drive, plug the external drive into the USB port - go to the Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Storage - Disk Management. The External drive should be listed as USB drive. On the lower panel, right click on the USB Drive and click on Format, and format it in NTFS.
After formating you will be able to use it as a normal hard drive.

Transcend 500 GB External HDD is detected but doesnt show the data in it.


Your external HDD may be corrupted. Recover the data before you use it.

First things first: STOP using the external hard dive that you want to recover data from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances of data recovery.

Then Recommend you have a try of Wondershare Data Recovery, a data recovery program with both Windows and Mac versions provided. It should help you. Get the related versions here,

Data Recovery Windows (for Windows)
Data Recovery Mac (for Apple Mac OS)

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to your hard drive until you can recover your data safely!

I have a iomega eGo HDD and its not showing up on my computer but it shows up under my devices how do I fix that


It depends. If this is the _very_ first time that you have connected the IOMEGA device to your computer, you'll need to "initialize" the HDD for usage by Windows (or Mac OS).
Or, if you've previously done that, and you've written files onto it, and now cannot read those files, you have an entirely-different problem, namely a "hardware" problem.

An external storage device has several major components:

* the USB cable (which in your case, seems OK, since the device is listed)
* the disk-drive inside the enclosure
* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure
* optionally, an external power-supply that connects to the enclosure.

Use a multi-meter to measure the voltage/amperage generated by that power-supply,
and compare with the specifications on the power-supply's label.

Disassemble the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive.
Connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if bypassing that USB-to-disk-drive adapter bypasses the problem.

If the device is still under warranty, IOMEGA will replace it, at minimal cost to you.

If the warranty has terminated, buy a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it inside the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

I have a WD2500 installed in an external drive enclosure connected to my comp. running XP. I have the jumper on cable select. It is connected via USB. When I turn the enclosure on, the drive spins up, and...


Please check if your HDD is visible in storage management. You must be logged on as Administrator or as a member of the Administrators group view and modify most properties and perform most computer-management tasks.

To start and use Computer Management on the local computer:
  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel. Click Performance and Maintenance, click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer Management.

    The Computer Management window for the local computer is displayed. "Computer Management (Local)" is displayed at the root of the console tree.
  2. In the console tree, expand System Tools, Storage
Then check if your USB HDD is visible under one of next options. This is for windows XP.
If it will be presented there try to right click on this drive and format hard drive. Also please recheck your jumper position. This picture might be very useful c33351b.gif

My External Hard Drive isn't working anymore, to say the just of it. It's on, lights on(not flashing, it flashes when it's being written to or accessed), usually has a regular clicking noise from it...


When a hard drive makes a clicking noise, this indicates the hard drive has failed and if the BIOS and the Computer Management does not detect it, then this confirm a hard disk failure.
To get the computer operating again, replace the hard disk, then install Windows on the hard disk using the Windows installation CD and the Windows product installation code that is on the label on the computer then install the device drivers and your programs.

HDD enclosure does not work


For that you need to uninstall all usb driver from device manager.
Right click on my computer icon then you see system property then go to hardware -> device manager then uninstall usb drivers 1 by 1 .
Then restart computer then all usb drivers are automatically installed.
Then connect your harddrive if still face same problem then connect your harddrive to another computer then check.
If another computer cant see your harddisk then your harddisk has hardware issue.
It need repairing .
If it is in warrenty take it to service shop they replaced it.

Samsung Pleomax SAM MD-205 driver?


It took me a lot of digging to try and find a driver download. You can try the UHD25-80GB driver (this is for Windows 98, but you can try to see if it fixes the problem): http://www.samsungpleomax.com/sup_03_01.asp?page=2&fcate=Driver+download&scate=Storage+Media&tcate=HDD&scateg=Storage%20Media&tcateg=HDD. Direct link to zip file: http://www.samsungpleomax.com/sup/cs/HDD-driver-2500-80GB%20DRIVER.zip

Also, specs indicate that you need USB 2.0 or 1.1. I had problems connecting via a 4-port hub (that was supposed to support USB 2.0) so ended up connecting directly via my computer USB ("Enhanced" = 2.0) slot, which seemed to work fine.

Go into the control panel. Press administrative tools. Select computer management. Under storage select disk management. Look for the hard drive. Make sure there isn't an additional partition on the drive. If there is you can change and delete partitions on this drive as well.
