It is very possible that the HDD is damaged.
You can try recovering it:
Right click to MY COMPUTER
MANAGE
DISK MANAGEMENT
If your computer can't see it here also, the chances are poor that you will be able to save your hard disk

Try Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Storage, Disk Management.

Check there to see if the drive is listed, "online" and has a "Healthy" Partition.

My glyph harddrive dont show up on my mac why?


If the hard drive was formatted on a PC computer in NTFS file format then the MAC will not recognise this hard drive.
If you want to transfer data between the PC and MAC then you need to format the hard drive with a PC in FAT32 file format. The MAC can read and write to a FAT32 formatted hard drive

My computer cannot recognise the hard drive


Are there any other harddrives installed on the computer...or is this a new harddrive...
If it's a second harddrive...then you have to set the jumpers accordingly...if it's a new harddrive...it should of came with a Cd and or floppy (depending on how old your computer is). You need to install that cd first, so it can tell your bios/cmos that there is a new HDD and the software will tell it to recognize it. Let me know

Hard drive not recognised


It may not appear like your other drives eg. C: d: etc
it may appear as a removable drive lower down in the list.

Or you may have to add a drive letter

To add a drive letter in XP
Go to control panel, administrative tools, computer management.

Now select disk management, your drive should show in here
right click on it and click change drive letter and paths
now click add at the bottom of this box and just click ok

You should now be able to see it fine

Wont recognise disk drive ide error


What you need to do is edit the BIOS so that the computer boots from the CD-ROM initially rather then the harddrive.

To do this follow these instructions:
1. Start the computer and tap the F2 key
2. You will now be in the computer BIOS, look for the option that says "Boot Sequence"
3. Highlight the option that shows your CD-ROM device and tap the "F5" key until it is the first one on the list
4. Hit the "Escape" key and select the option to "Exit & Save Changes".

If you restart your computer it should now boot from the CD-ROM. If you have any problems let me know and I will be more then happy to help you further troubleshoot!

Freecom harddrive beeping


Had the same problem. Just checked with their tech support: regular beeping can mean that there is not enough power going through the unit. I tried another USB port on the back of the computer (ie one connected directly to MB) and it worked fine.

PC not recognising the slave drive


Assuming you set it as slave or cable select as required by the motherboard, you have to first get the bios to recognise it press F2 or Del on boot up to enter cmos and then there should be an option to auto detect drives, save settings for a re boot. When in windows, right click on my computer icon and select manage>disk management and then your drives will be listed, right click on the slave drive and select format or set as active and it will then show, but only 137GB may show depending on the bios version.

Reconization of external harddrive on my computer


Have you removed it at anytime before, if so better putting back into same usb port, or firewire or try using another one. Assuming all drivers have been loaded for the HDD. See if the drive is recognised, go to My Computer, right click then manage, then look at disk management and see if it's there. If not there and you know your ports are ok, then there is a hardware fault.
