Tips for a great answer:
A USB hard drive is a portable external storage device that works just like a conventional hard drive.
The device is simply plugged into a USB port on your computer as you would connect a flash drive.
Unlike a flash drive, however, a USB hard drive can store a much larger amount of data.
If your computer will not recognize your USB hard drive, you can try troubleshooting steps to resolve the problem.
Plug one end of the USB cable into the port on your hard drive and plug the other end into the USB port of your computer. Ensure that both ends of the cable are connected securely.
Open "My Computer" (Windows XP) or "Computer" (Windows Vista/7).
The USB device should be listed as "removable disk" once it is plugged into the computer.
If it is not listed among the available drives on your computer, proceed to the next step.
Ensure that the data cable is working properly.
Try another USB cable if you have one available.
Disconnect all other USB devices from the computer as they may interfere with the operating system detecting the external hard drive.
Reboot the computer if the USB hard drive is still not recognized.
Plug the USB cable into another USB port and check to see if the device is detected.
If you are using a USB hub, remove the device and plug the external hard drive directly into a USB port.
If the computer still fails to recognize the device, the external hard drive itself may be experiencing a hardware problem.
Check the status of the hard drive in the "Device Manager" window. Under Windows XP, right click "My Computer" and select "Device Manager."
For Windows Vista and Windows 7, click the "Windows" button in the lower left corner of the screen, then type "Computer Management" in the search bar and press "Enter."
Select "Device Manager" in the "Computer Management" window. In the Device Manager window, click the "+" sign that appears beside "Disk Drives."
If the external drive is not listed, click "Other Devices" in the Device Manager window and see if an "Unknown Device" appears.
The external hard drive may have been detected but the device is not working properly.
If it is still under warranty, take the device to the computer store where it was purchased to have it repaired or replaced.
Hope this helps

Charge your MP3 player.
The battery might just be dead, in which case letting it charge for a few hours corrects the problem.
Plug the USB data cable into the USB port on the MP3 player and insert the other end into one of the USB ports on your computer.
In a moment, the computer states that it has detected the removable device.
Sometimes the MP3 player needs to update itself, and it can only do so while connected to a computer.
When the MP3 player detects the computer, it attempts to connect to the Internet and retrieve any system updates available for the device.
Replace the battery.
The battery is usually the first part of the MP3 player to go (especially after excessive use). Although you can manually change the battery on most MP3 players, you need to send your
Apple products (iPod, iPod Nano, iPod Touch, iPhone) into the company so they can change the battery for you.
Purchase a new MP3 player.
If your MP3 player has received any sort ofwater damage, it is not going to turn on at all and there is nothing you can do to fix the issue.
hope this helps
