Pxe-e61: media test failure, check cable

The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard disk has failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to check if the hard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot see it as an USB mass storage device and you cannot open the various folders and files on this drive, then this confirms the hard drive is faulty. Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

The first thing I'd recommend is to check Disk Management, to see if the computer is detecting is as a hard drive. ( Right click on my computer, hit manage, and under Storage, select 'disk management').
From there you'll be able to see how it's detecting the hard drive.
Even if Device Manager detects it, if Disk Management does not, you know it's not being 'properly' detected.
From Disk Management, you can format the drive, or reassign a drive letter (if needed).

I've had a similar issue where the problem was the power connector to the hard drive. If you have important data on the hard drive, you could open the external case, and attach the hard disk with a separate usb device, such as . Good Luck.

WD My Book not displayed in windows explorer as drive letter

try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this program to recover your files.

My computer worked properly. but at once my IDE devices started giving troubles. my 2 IDE devices are not detected at the start up.

The BIOS will have trouble detecting faulty IDE devices, eg the hard disk etc.
To check if the IDE devices are faulty, connect the hard disk to an USB hard disk adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port, if the computer detects it as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files then the hard drive is OK and the fault is the disk controller. If the hard disk is not detected then it is faulty and a new hard disk is needed, Windows installed on the new hard drive together with the device drivers and your programs to get an fully functioning computer again.

Not Detected on PC

I found this on this site. in case you havent seen it. It worked for me. Try this:

When I disconnected my backup drive and plugged in a USB drive the other night, my Windows drive letters got all wonky. D: became G: became F: became H:, and a bunch of my shortcuts didn't work anymore.
But it's easy to reassign the drive letters of your choice to add-on disks in Windows. Microsoft says you should log on as an administrator, and from Administrative Tools in Control Panel:
Double-click Computer Management, and then click Disk Management in the left pane.
Right-click the drive, the partition, the logical drive, or the volume that you want to assign a drive letter to, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths. Of course things can get wacky if the disk is in use - by your computer or another on the network - so proceed with caution, you drive alphabetizer, you.
