Upload the files to the jumpdrive. Remove jumpdrive from computer 1 and insert in computer 2. When computer 2 recognizes the jumpdrive, copy the files to a directory folder where you want to save the music. Unplug the jumpdrive.
If not "safely removed" USB drives can go bad. If your system recognizes the drive when plugged in you can try doing a scan disk on it and check for any errors that may be preventing you from accessing the file system.
Plug in the USB drive, check my computer and see if the drive is there, if it is, right click the drive, click properties, and tools and select the option to scan the disk.
If you do not see the drive in My Computer, click start, Run, type DISKMGMT.MSC and click OK. Check and see if your drive is being recognized in Disk Management.
If you still do not see it in Disk Management, they you may just have a faulty jump drive, at which point you should contact Verbatim to see if they have any other recommendations or if it is still under warranty.
Did the 1000gb external hd come with instructions?
Did you read them?
Did you Install The Software for this Device?
If not. Try plugging it in all the usb ports.
Try shutting down the PC, when it's off plug in the 1000gb external HD,
Restart the Computer, If Windows still dosen't recognize it, then it's most likely defective, and should be returned. Try purchasing a higher quality brand.
There are two major possibilities: 1: There is hardware or software problem with your computer's USB ports. To test this, plug the drive into a different computer if you can, and try having it plugged into your current one while you turn the computer on.
2: The issue is with the Jump Drive itself. If the drive fails to show up when plugged into a different computer this is the likely problem. The data CAN be recovered, but if it won't show up on any computer, the only real way to do so would be to pay a Hard Drive recovery shop.
In that case I have two suggestions. *note I am assuming you are using a computer with Microsoft Windows.*
One: Defragment the jump drive. With the jump drive plugged in click on the 'start button' and choose 'My computer'. Then right click the jumpdrive and select 'properties' which will open a window. Click on the tools tab and select defragment.
Two: Format the drive. First, if the drive will allow, copy the data fron the jumpdrive to your computer. Then click on the 'start button' and choose 'My computer'. Then right click the jumpdrive and select format. Let me know if you have already tried this or if you need more clarification.
If your computer does not recognize anything when you plug it into the computer, your problem is most likely a broken contact inside the usb drive.
You should attempt to open the drive, and see if one of the four contacts on the inside of hte usb key are no longer making their way to the circuit board, and try to reconnect it.
IF you can push the connectors down with your fingers and make contact temporarily, and the computer recognizes it, try to just hold it there while you copy all your data off. Then throw away the flash drive.
