It may not have enough power.
Try supplying external power to the drive.
Dis-connect other usb devices.
Or plug-in via a usb hub that has it's own power.

Computer doesnt recognize drive


Try a different usb port on the computer. Maybe the usb port you are using is bad.

Try the portable drive on another computer and see if it is recognized. If not, the portable drive might be defective.

Hard drive fell about 2 ft to the floor worked right after now one week later its not recognizing data the files were there some songs played but now when i plug in it asks to format need my data what do...


Sounds like the drive has been badly damaged from the fall. Try plugging it in with the power off and then turning your computer on. If you can see the drive in My Computer you may be able to copy the files U need to another drive. If not, take the drive to a PC store and see if they have a utility program that will recover your files for you.

Can't figure out how to copy info from Passport to my hard drive


the question here is how did you manage to get the info saved into your passport portable hd in the first place? I don't mean to sound like a smartass but if you did save the files onto your portable hard drive before you wiped your pc's hard drive it should work the same way backwards if you want to access and restore the files back on to your pc from your portable hard drive.

now to answer your question you should simply...
1. plug your portable hard drive (I mean power and usb cable both).
2. turn on your passpost portable hard drive (if needed).
3. your computer should see your portable hard drive now being connected to the usb ports, wait a few seconds for the computer to recognize it and give you access to it.
4. if you don't a pop up asking you what to do with the new device you just connected (passport port. hd) simply go to start>my computer and under removable devices category you should see your portable hard.
5. double click your portable hard drive and you should be staring at the contents of your passport hd.
6. you can copy some or all the folders you find in your portable hd on to a folder that resides in "my documents" folder which is a folder that resides in your pc's hard drive. (if you are not accoustumed to move folder around from one device to another, please ask the help of someone that is familiar with this task or simply select a folder, right click on it, select "copy", then go to the target location, right click on an empty space and select "paste")

if you are not able to do this 1-6, you may have not completed setting your system, and it's possible that you may still need to install drivers for you usb hub (for instance) to have your system being able to work with usb devices.

post back with your findings and any details of any problems encountered along the way.

hope this helps!

My computer has stopped recognizing the 160 GB portable hard drive (plug and pray)


better plug it to another pc and observe if it would be recognized by the pc. well, sometimes, portable hard drives takes time to be detected by PC specially when it comes to age, better observe it for about 3-5 mins, and if its not detected, try to touch the usb cord of your portable hard drive connecting to your pc and make some adjustments to it.

Hello i bye today usb flash drive 8 gdgn-8 1.1 or 2.0 i need plug in because my compiuter need it i have window vista


Most flash drives are plug-n-play devices. Windows Vista should be able to handle this. Simply plug in your flash drive into an unused USB port. The computer will take less than a minute to recognize your device and assign a drive letter to it. Now it can be used as a removeable drive.

Hope that helped.
