Good day, My Lenovo Thinkpad USB hard drive 320GB is not recognised by my laptop and other laptops i have tried it on, after punching in my password and the light goes green.

Try finding the driver software for your portable hard drive, it may have come with a disk that contains this software or you might have to download it from the manufacture's website.

I have an iomega portable hard drive USB 2.0 called eGo. I have been using it with my Macbook. Since yesterday my computer does not recognize my eGo. I have tried to change the USB ports, have restarted...

An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

PC not recognising Iomega Prestige 320gb usb portable hard drive. I've connected it all up, disconnected, reconnected, rebooted the computer, but the drive is just not recognised and does not show up in...

Does the drive show in Device Manager? Right click on 'My Computer' and select properties, the open device manager.. Navigate down to Disk Drives or Hard Drives, click on the plus sign and see if your drive is listed. If it is, then right click on the drive name and open properties for the drive. Click on the 'Volumes' tab and hit the 'Populate Button'. It may be the disk just needs initialising, then reformatting before you can use it. If it does need initializing, a wizard should appear to guide you through the process!
If this doesn't solve your problem, try using a different USB cable and/or USB ports on your computer, and ensure to unplug all other USB devices other than keyboard & mouse.

First is the "Drive" formatted? It will not work, if it is a new drive, until it is formatted. And/Or "Initialized"? If it has data on it already then it may be faulty? the only way to check that is to try it on another machine... also are you 100% sure you have it connected right way around, I have made exactly that mistake, before, I learnt whats what. Also try another USB port, this sometimes works. Try the setup on another PC to check it is actually OK.

Is it an external/portable hard drive? Use the rear USB panel, if problems persist, try using your hard drive on another PC. And if you're still having problems, try replacing the USB cables of both the hard drive and printer. If it works on another PC/laptop, buy a PCI USB panel, and install it on the PCI slot of the motherboard. Hope This will help you.

External disk is not been detected

Check the BIOS setting, make sure the hard disk is set to Auto (detect) or change the settings to default settings (your BOS may not have this option) then save and reboot laptop.
If the hard disk has not been detected and/or Unable to find the operating system, it means you may have a faulty hard disk or a faulty hard disk controller or the hard disk may not be making proper electrical connection.

To reseat the hard drive, remove the hard drive and reinsert it into the laptop a few times and see if it boots up..
If it still does not see the hard drive then the fault is probably the hard disk. To test if the hard disk is faulty, remove the hard disk and insert it into a hard drive USB adapter and connect it into the USB port of a working computer. If you don't see this drive as an external drive then you will know its faulty. Then you will need to purchase a hard drive, insert it into your laptop then install the Windows operating system and all your device drivers and programs to get your laptop operational again.

If the hard drive is OK the the fault is with the disk controller, and it is near impossible/expensive to repair the motherboard. Put your money towards a new laptop and put the hard disk into a USB hard disk adapter case and use it as as a portable external hard drive.

Best of luck.
