I cant save anything on the 1T external hard drive. I am running windows 7. The computer reconizes it but wont save


The Hard Drive must be Write protected. There might be a Toggle switch around External Drive for Write Protection. Or can you save files to any other USB Drive (Pen Drive) ?

I have toshiba external hard drive but when i plug it my laptop wont work anymore it will hang.


Hi

i would go to your device manager
then go to the top of that box and hover over the icons on the top right
one of those icons will say scan for new hardware
so hit the scan icon
windows may or maynot reconize the external hard drive
then leaving the external drive plugged into the usb
restart the laptop and maybe windows will then reconize it

if not please come back to us again stating what operating system you have

many thanks

Wont reconize


Probably not the right answer for your problem. Mine is an external 1 TB Simple Drive. Mine wouldn't respond at all. I unplugged the power cable from the back of the hard drive and replugged it in and instantly it worked (with the computer and hard drive plugged in). I had tried rebooting the computer, plugging/unplugging over and over into the computer and that didn't work.

My external hdd used to be reconized and accessable by my computer but after several uses all it does is make a buzzing sound. My computer will not reconize its presence until after it is shut down.


Hi

Its not a software issue with your computer or external hard drive but a hardware issue with the external hard drive. You'll need to get your Iomega hardrive checked from Imomega, hope its under warranty. You can reach them at--

Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

I have a portable hard drive and my computer does not reconize it when it is pluged in. when I first plug it in I here a sound that it is connected, but it does not show up on the control panel thru one of...


Does your hard drive make any clicking/nocking sound like these? If yes - then the drive has bad heads and you need help from professional data recovery specialist. If not - try remove the internal drive from the enclosure, connect it directly into PC and scan it with some data recovery software like R-Studio for example.
