What operating system are you using? if you are using vista or above, you pc should pick up on the drive and install it for you. I assume you are using it usb. make sure that they are turned on in device manager. sometimes even the cable are no good. try another cable if you have one handy. if this does not work, ask a fiend if you can try to plug it into their pc.

You would access it from My Computer like your normal harddrive. Note if the removable drive is showing up in My Computer then this is a sign that another device is already been assigned to the drive your USB drive wants by default. The links below will help you assign a drive letter to the USB drive.

Physical damage on the memorex travel drive - the disk is making a noise when it is plugged in but it is unable to show any files on the computer


Hello,

it can be fixed if the hard drive is not damaged. If its damaged, you will have to get another one.

I don't stay in Perth, so I would not know where to find a repairer in Perth.

Maybe you should look around, you might find someone who can repair in Perth.

Take care.

Playing mp3 songs on the ps3 --- 80gb


Whether you are hooking up your device through a USB cable or removable memory (SD card/Flash drive) the PS3 should recognize and play the titles. Here are a few steps to help you along.

1. Hook up device to your PS3

2. Select PS3 media icon where files files should be located

3. Press triangle button on controller

4. Sub menu will show up on side of screen

5. Select the 'display all' option

6. Files should now be accessable/loadable/playable

Playing files directly from the Mp3 player or loading them on the hard drive are both do-able and both methods should work.
