Unrecognizable USB External Harddrive

I have a BusLink uii-80 external harddrive with a USB2.0 connection. My PC no longer recognizes the drive, and does not give me a drive letter. If I boot my PC and plug it in, then I hear a *ding* like it is recognized but I don't see a drive letter. USB Mass Device driver is loaded.

Xtra-PC does it really work to our benefit?

Your better, less expensive option would be to download something like CCleaner and use that, followed by defragmenting your harddrive. Or if you really want to speed things up, get a solid state harddrive and reinstall the OS, making sure to only install the programs that you need.

Can an external memory harddrive can make the speed of my computer faster,if it can what are the specs of hard drive do i get?

The speed of you PC depends on the clock speed of the processor and supported by the Random access Memory - internal memory - that supports the processor which is the CPU- central processing unit.
So unless this is improved it wont make a difference. However keep you PC with low load of programs and clear of any virus and unnecessary files that might bring the speed lower

Yes, the external floppy drive must be connected directly to a USB port on the computer instead of to a USB hub.The PC can't see the drive thru the USB hub. Applies to both 32 and 64 bit.

Unable to format pen drive

XP has a stupid feature like that. If you did format with the XP style, try to do it manually.

My computer > Locate your usb pendrive >Rightclick and Format.

If this don't work, your pendrive might just be malfunctioning. Replace it if you can, or upgrade to external harddrive.
