It could be defaulting to a drive letter which is already been used. So go to disk management (right click on My Computer, click on management then click on disk management) and make sure the usb drive is showing up there and if it is then change the drive letter.

I had the same problem, and as a last ditch effort I pryed open the casing, and then took the plastic piece off of the actual chip, leaving just the usb neck attached to the circuit board and it worked.

My drive is almost fill a 4g now when i plug it in it is not reading any of the stored files.

Hello there!

USB flash drives in general, are wonderful little tools that allow people to store a relatively a large amount of data in a compact and portable interface that is extremely easy to use at all. The downside of storing lots of critical data on a USB flash drive, however, is that they're fairly susceptible to damage and that you can lose all of your information immediately if something goes wrong. When troubleshooting a USB flash drive, there are several key things to check and to remember that will help you to determine whether your flash drive is destroyed or not.

1. Look and see whether or not your USB flash drive's indicator lights are activated when it is plugged in to your computer's USB port. The vast majority of USB flash drives have small LED lights located somewhere on them that flash intermittently when they're hooked up to a computer. If your light does not turn on, then it's either not plugged in properly or is damaged and likely not repairable.

2. Make sure to download and install the right driver software for your USB flash drive.
3. Try your USB flash drive on more than one computer before giving up on it altogether. If it works on another computer, then the problem is likely with your computer hardware or software, not with the USB flash drive.
4. If you cannot restore your files, you may use a third party software to recover them.

External maxtor isn't recognized on XP

Since you have important files on this drive, do not waste a lot of time with troubleshooting. If your drive is about to go out, you can put it over the edge that way and kill it.

Just to be sure, I would plug the drive into 1 other computer just to make sure. If you get the same thing, the problem is definently with the Hard Drive.

If this is the situation, I would take off the outer case to reveal the regular hard drive inside. You can hook this hard drive up to your computer as a slave and copy the files off. If your computer will not read the drive as a slave, and you have double checked the jumper settings and cable can try a program like "Get Data Back" to try and recover data off the bad/corrupted hard drive.

Clicking sounds when started and wont read after at all

Sorry to say that is the click of death for a hard drive. Sometimes you can start and stop the drive a few times and it will come back to life (shortly) hopefully long enough to pull any important data from it. most times though it is time for a new drive. Suggest you visit the dive companies website an see if your is still covered under warrenty - at least you can have it replaced if it is.
If you do nto care about the data on the drive you can attempt to blow away the partion on it and make new partions and format the drive but I personally would not trust the drive for any important data.

Same thing just happened to a single drive NAS I have/had. Now I'm building a Raid 5 4 drive NAS for our important data.

hope this helps.

External Hard drive wont show files or name

Even though you may hear the motor turning in your external drive the drive may not be able to read the information on the platter(s) because the arm isn't working. This cannot be fixed; you'll have to buy another external drive.
There are services that can retrieve the data on the broken drive. Google "data recovery services" and prepare to spend big bucks.

Usb problem

no fear. sorry to say that your usb flash is done for. extracting the information can be done, but it is a specialized job and thus will cost a small fortune. getting it repaired is fairly simple but the information inside might not be attainable due memory chip damage. does your fash disk power up (as in does the light on it flash when plugged unto the USB port)?

babyvalkyrie. your problem is slightly different. what you need to do is log onto the bios menu during startup if the bios recognises the the HDD then you can try to re-install windows on it, but during setup you will have to formatt your harddrive fully (formatt using the long formatt not the quick formatt. also use the ntfs formatt. If your bios does not recognise your HDD then you will just have to replace it.

Blue light clicking noise

This is known as the "click of death" among hard drives. Your external is merely a normal hard drive in an enclosure, and just as the hard drive in your computer can crash, so an the one in the enclosure, especially since it they tend to be transported a lot more. The sound you hear is the head seeking rapidly back and forth across the platters, and it isn't seeing anything.
I read the manual, and it doesn't say anything about a blue light. If the information is vitally important, there are companies that do data recovery that you can find, but it will run you upwards of $300. If it's not that important to you, buy a new hard drive and treat it nicely.

Very good in checking if your computers' USB ports are working. Now that you know that your computer's USB ports are working, try your USB device on his computer and check if it'll work there. If it also doesn't work there, then it'll be your USB device that's not being read.
