Sounds like your drive may be faulty with the rattling - if I were you I'd back up everything off it pretty quickly, then send the drive back to western Digital if under warranty. I wouldnt open it otherwise your warranty will almost certainly be void.

Hi,
- Make sure you have been installed JVC driver on your PC - If your PC has multi ports USB, just try other ports to make connection - check your firewire, it may be malfunctioned . Try other USB cables

ST300003U2 hard drive powers up ok, power light on, message on pc "usb device not recognised " .one of the usb devices has malfunctioned and windows does not recognise it.


Try to plug it in to another PC to see if you get the same message. See if you can run a scan disk on it from Windows to see if it's bad or going bad too.

To be honest, device not recognised is a bad sign. :(

I have just purchased a new crypton brooklyn mp4 player and my computer does not recognise it.... well it sees that something has been plugged in to the USB but tells me that it has malfunctioned


There is problem with USB cable...every single one of them...go to the shop  where that device was purchased or their service center, and get the new USB cable.  Or just find and buy a new one (cable). :)

Usb malfunction


The USB ports have gone bad. Just because they show up in device manager as being recognized does not mean they are working correctly. They are controlled by chips onthe motherboard and if one of those chips has gone bad, then they just won't work. The cheapest solution would be to purchase a USB card and install it, bypassing the onboard ports. Thanks and please take a moment to give this solution a rating of fixya. Thanks! :c)

Malfunction


remove the usb drivers from the pc and then reboot and let windows reinstall the drivers, you can also try the usb ports on the back of the pc since they have more power.
