D Drive stopped working

My D Drive has stopped working, it simply doesn`t recognise any disks, when I click on the drive it says "insert Disk in D Drive"
The system info says the device is working properly, I have tried uninstalling and re-installing but still nothing. Can anyone suggest anything. Thanks

I have a sony vaio VGC-LN1M, I insert a disk in to drive sd/mmc [d:] it then still asks me to insert a disk .


it usually means that the sd/mmc card is not formatted with a file system recognised by windows, or is not formatted at all, or is faulty. however, sd/mmc is not a disk, so it sounds like either you are confused, or your optical drive is using the same drive letter as the mmc or sd port. If that is so, right-click on my computer, go to manage computer - then disk management. select the optical drive right click and select change drive letter and paths. now pick an un-used drive letter for the optical drive and apply the change. you may need to restart the computer. then the optical drive should work.
You haven't specified what version of windows you are using, but the action is roughly the same.

When I connect it to my laptop (or ANY other computer/laptop) the blue light on the external hardrive turns on and I can feel that it is working, but it simply doesnt get read, the computers dont recognise...


Open the enclosure.
Separate the disk-drive from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter.
Connect the disk-drive as a 'slave' disk-drive in a desktop computer, and see if you can read the files.

If not, search online for a professional 'data recovery service' -- for a FEE, they can repair a disk-drive just long-enough to copy your files onto a new disk-drive.

When the flash memory USB hard drive device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restore it by reformatting it. Insert the flash or USB hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Healthy.
NOTE Formating the USB flash drive will delete your data.

Removeable Disk Not Recognised. I have my USB labelled SONY USB 2.0 I GB. once I plug it on my computer never recognised. So am asking you to get better solutions, Regards, charles


Sometimes when a flash memory stick fails because it was not removed from the USB port properly. If the device is removed by just pulling it out of the USB port, it can cause the flash device to fail, you must click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon on the Task Bar and select the device you wish to remove and only do so when instructed to do so.

Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Healthy.

You need to format the external drive. Format the drive as primary drive and in FAT32. (FAT32 will allow data to be exchanged between MACs and PCs).
Insert the external hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.

Computer does not seem to recognise disc. I keep


Hello !

Either your disk or disk drive is problematic.

Try your disk in another PC to test. If the disk works, your CD drive is faulty. Try another disk in your computer's drive. If the disk doesn't work, you have confirmed that the drive is faulty.

If the drive is a problem, I would suggest to purchase a disk head cleaner, first. Then, if the drive is still a problem, it would need replacing.

Hope this helps.

My cd drive doesn't recognise the disk inserted


Can you see the information on the CD/DVD from Windows Explorer? (NOT Internet Explorer). Some CD's/DVD's just won't recognize correctly from Auto Play. If you can see what's on the disk (in Windows Explorer) try double clicking the Setup.exe or Run.exe from there and see if it loads. I have the same problem on some of mine.

Try connecting it on a different system, if it is not getting recognised you will need to format the drive.

USB flash disk not working


Assuming you are using a Cruzer Micro Drive with U3 Smart, things can be a little confusing because the drive actually shows up as two independent devices. When you insert the drive, there should be two devices showing up in your list of drives. One of them is installed as a CD Rom Drive and the other one is a Removable Drive. If you double click on the CD Rom Drive instead of the Removable Drive and you don't have any U3 applications mapped to the CD Rom Drive, then you'll get an insert disk message because Windows thinks that the CD Rom Drive is empty. Just use the Removable Drive if you want to simply install and transfer files.
