If you are talking about pluging in you external harddrive and your PC not detecting it then there may be a few things you can do. I have a link to a previous post that I gave to another user who had a similar issue. This should help.

My WD element extrenal hard drive won't open. i can see it in my devices, and the blue light stays on. it also makes the sound saying it's connected but I can't see the device in my comput


First thing, try to change the cable, try a different one, then if it does not work, try to connect the hard drive on another computer, and changing cables as well. This will help you to narrow down the problem to find out exactly what the matter is. If the Hard drive spins properly and it does not produce any click-click sound then it is fine. If all the above fail, then you have to slave the hard drive using its internal SATA connection. You have to open up the hard drive and remove the pin that connects the hard drive to the cable. This will enable you to see the SATA connection. Slave the Hard drive on a desktop computer and see if you can gain access to it. If you can, then consider replacing both the cable and the pin that connects the cable to the hard drive. If your hard drive just spins and you can not access it while its a slave to another computer, then the hard drive has a problem.... Try the methods above, i believe your hard drive did not go this bad...

Wont recognize usb anymore


if the external hard disk drive powers on, perhaps replacing the USB cable could help ?

i had WD extrenal, and it crapped out on me -- i had so much vital information that i lost . i finally discovered that the power modeul inside the housing that encases the drive was bad.. i coul not get the PC board replaced.

i hope you can resolve this with new USB cable.

have you tried another computer -- see if that PC recognises the WD external drive

let me know how it works out for you

Extrenal cd rom will not boot


Go into the setup menu on boot (before the windows screen appears) by pressing F2 or F10.
Go to the Boot Options and check that the CD-ROM/USB Device boots before the hard disk drive. Save and Exit.

Right click on my computer.

My mac g5 is not recognising my WD elements extrenal hard drive, this is the first time I have plugged an extrenal hard drive of this sort into my mac. Thanks


My computer does not recognize the Drive.
A: First, check to make sure that all of your connections are secure. Then check if your External Hard Drive is listed in the Apple System Profiler. If the driver listed is “USB Authoring Support” or “Toast USB Support”, disable this Extension(s) in the Extensions Manager. These Extensions can cause a conflict with the Drive.
