External drive not picked up on computer


External hard drives not only provide additional storage space on a computer system but also allow data to be conveniently transported from one computer to another.


These drives typically plug right in to a port on the computer and function without any additional setup; however, if you are running into trouble where your external hard drive is not being detected, you must troubleshoot the situation to determine why the drive appears to be missing.


Check the USB connection running from the hard drive to your computer.

If the USB cable is not seated securely in the port, the computer will not detect the external drive.


Disconnect the USB cable from the computer and plug it into a different USB port. Occasionally, a USB port will fail to function with some hardware and changing the USB connection may correct this issue.


Switch from a USB to a Firewire cable connection, if possible.

The USB port on the hard drive may have died; if so, changing to a Firewire connection will resolve this issue.


Install the driver for the external device from the installation disc provided with the product. Older computer systems may require you to manually install this driver.


After inserting the installation CD, follow the prompts from the installation wizard to install the driver on your computer.


Restart the computer.

If you connected the external drive while the computer is powered down, it may not recognize the device when you turn on the computer.


After restarting the computer, connect the external drive to the system.

The drive should now be detected by your operating system.


Connect the external hard drive to a power source and then plug it into your PC computer using a USB or Firewire cable.


Log on to your PC computer using an account with administrative privileges.

Open the Start menu and click on the "Control Panel" icon.


Open the "Administrative Tools" folder and then double-click on the "Computer Management" icon.


Select "Disk Management" from the list of options on left side of the window.


Right-click on the drive you want your computer to recognize and select "Change Drive Letter and Paths."


Select a drive letter for the external hard drive to be recognized as and click "OK."

The drive will now appear in My Computer.


Hope this helps.

How do i plug in my dane-elec flash drive?


Remove the cap and you will expose a usb plug. Plug that into any usb port on your pc.(perfered a port on the back of your pc cause those would be the most direct and powered ports)

Why can't I access anything that was copied onto my Toshiba 500G external harddrive. The computer doesn't recognize the program that made any of it, even though it's the same computer.


It is very possible the voltage on your computer's USB port is not handling the load. I would buy a "powered" USB 2.0 hub, plug it into your computer's usb port and plug the harddrive into the powered hub.

Is there any way to transfer the info on 1 usb to another


Yes, if your computer has two or more usb ports available. Plug each individual usb thumb drive into its own usb port. Open up explorer and verify which usb drive has the information on it and then copy all of the information (select all & copy) now drag and drop to the other usb port that contains the thumb drive you want to put the info onto. Each usb port will identify itself with a seperate drive letter.

You can also cut and paste instead of drag and drop.

I have a 250GB Buffalo Turbo USB Hardrive. Until today it was working fine. Now suddenly it says USB Driver not recognized. Whats the problem?


Try to insert it to the other usb ports and see if it works fine. If it doesn't, then probably there is a problem with it. But try to insert other usb devices in the usb ports of your computer, if it does'nt recognize also then the problem is in your usb ports.

I can't log onto my laptop


The error message means that system cannot see your hard drive and therefore can't recognize the operating system.
The fix can be simply just re-seating the hard drive or a more serious problem - a faulty hard drive or worse still a faulty disk controller.
You can remove the hard drive and insert it into a USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. This computer will see this as an external hard disk if hard drive is OK and you will be able to view the contents of this drive. (And this means you have a faulty disk controller on the motherboard.)
If you cannot see the hard drive then it is faulty and you can purchase a new hard drive and install it in the laptop and install Windows on this hard drive to get the laptop operational again.

PLEOMAX 5GB Thumbdrive


Do you see a message on your system tray when it is plugged in? If you don't see any message, it means that the drive is not being detected. You can't retrieve any data or files on the thumb drive if it is not detected. Things you can try to isolate the problem:

1. Try a different USB port on your computer. Check if your thumb drive will be detected.

2. Try a different USB device like mouse on your USB port. If it is detected, it means that the problem is the thumb drive. If not, it means that the USB port is not working or is disabled.

3. Try the thumb drive on a different computer.

Hope this helps. ;-)
