Cant open my hard drive in my laptop


Locate the power cable and USB cable that came with your hard drive.



Connect cables to the appropriate locations on the back of the hard drive.

Sometimes a USB cable doubles as the power source, so you might not need a wall outlet to power the device.



Turn on your computer and allow your operating system time to load before continuing.

Plug the hard drive into the power outlet if necessary, but wait on powering up the device.



Connect the USB cable to the computer while the hard drive is in the "Off" position.

If the USB cable doubles as the power source, the device might turn itself on once connected.



Turn on the hard drive and wait until the hardware has been detected by the operating system. A message should pop up that lets you know new hardware has been detected.



Click on the "Start" menu and go to "My Computer."



Notice all your disk drives are listed in this window. The external hard drive should be visible, and holding the mouse cursor over the location will help you locate the correct drive.


Right click on the location of the drive, and move the cursor to "Open" or "Explore" and click.


Hope this helps

Windows 7

First, please disconnect all USB devices and then perform the following steps:


Click "Start" button, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the "Search" bar and press "Enter". Click "Continue" if necessary.



In Device Manager, double click to expand "Universal Serial Bus controllers", right click on the Host Controller, click "Uninstall" and click "OK".



Repeat the step 2 to uninstall all items under "Universal Serial Bus controllers".



Then, restart your computer and Windows 7 will reinstall all USB controllers automatically.




Some external storage devices work poorly or not at all when connected to a hub; try connecting the drive directly to a port on the computer.


Also check if it's detected in "Disk Management".


Here you can verify if the partition and format are correct for the Operating System.


Check the Drive's status in Device manager.


This will verify if the external drive has a drive letter designation.


Check Partition and Format.


Log in as Administrator account in windows or any other account with administrative privileges


Insert your removable disk into the USB port.


Click Start, right click on computer and select manage.


Now, click Disk Management.


Check whether drive letter for the device is present.


Check the lower window to find whether the device is detected (such as Disk 1, Disk 2, etc).


If the device is detected with a drive letter, verify that no other device is using that drive letter.


If it is, change it to unused drive letter.


if you dont have a disk with the drivers

you will need to download one try one of these

The computer no longer sees my 320 gb hard drive, do i need to download new drivers? if ao where do i find them. i store all my photo's and music on this hard drive


Possibilities:
1. dead USB port on your computer -- try another port
2. try a different USB cable
3. try your external drive on some other computer, to see if it works at all
4. open the casing, and separate the disk-drive from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter. Connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive, thus bypassing that adapter, to see if the adapter has failed, or if the disk-drive itself has failed
5. Google-search for a commercial "data recovery service" -- such companies can disassemble your disk-drive, and fix it, just long-enough to copy all your photos/music onto a brand-new disk-drive.
