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.

External HDD usb 3.0 Rocketfish 2.5


install the driver for it ..if it has a CD with drivers..and try again ..It may also not be read cause it is on a usb 3.0 and you may need to change the usb port ..If you do not have a 3.0 port ..it may work on a 2.0 ..but be sure you have the drivers for this kinda port ..Also try ti in a different computer cause its drivers may not be compatible with your operation system ..If it is made to work in newish windows 7 and you run an older OS ..this may be a problem ..

The external drive does not show up on my desk top and it is plugged in.


Follow the steps given below to refresh USB ports.

1. Right-click My Computer icon on the desktop, and then select Properties.
2. Click the Hardware tab.
3. Click the Device Manager button.
4. Click the plus (+) sign to the left of Universal Serial Bus controllers.
5. Right-click the device listed under Universal Serial Bus controller and select Uninstall.
6. Click OK to confirm the removal of the device.

Please note, repeat Steps 5 and 6 until all the devices under Universal Serial Bus Controller are removed.

7. Shut down the computer.

CAUTION: Ensure that the Shut Down option is selected, instead of the Restart option.

8. Wait for 5 seconds and then restart the computer. When the computer restarts, a "Windows has detected new or added hardware" message window will open.

The above steps will refresh the USB ports.

Now connect the USB devices like mouse, video camera, your external usb hard disk...usb hubs...whatever you like and the drivers should install automatically.

Tip: It is always recommended to connect the main usb devices at the rear end usb port, as they require more power to initiate.

Computer not recognizing hard drive. Seems to be a problem with usb connection. Can I put the drive into another enclosure?


Definitely you can try with different enclosure, and it will work in any enclosure... But before buying a new enclosure it would be better if you try to connect the hard drive in a different computer to isolate where the issue is...

Samsung sp0802n HDD enclosure. I installed everything. The safe remove program detect the massage storage, but the hard drive icon does not show.


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.

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.

Usb connection on my attache maxfile broke. I still have the harddrive and need a new clamshell with usb plug.


You should be able to buy a USB enclosure from any well stocked independant computer store or online store, i.e. NewEgg or TigerDirect, to put that HDD in. I believe they are available for any standard or laptop IDE/SATA HDD. The enclosure should come with the cabling/connections to install the drive. If the drive is still functional, it should be "plug and play" once you put it into a new enclosure.
