External HD is not detected by laptop Windows XP


A common issue...I'm sure your hard drive is working fine, Windows is just not giving it an unused drive letter.

1. Insert the device (camera or usb drive)
2. Right-click "My Computer" and select "Manage".
3. Click on "Disk Management"
4. Right-click the item in the list that looks like your camera or usb drive, and then click "Change Drive Letter and Paths."
5. Click "Change".
6. Give it a drive letter that is not being used.
7. Click OK.

The device should work instantly after that.

Maxtor Basics 320 GB external harddrive cant be recognized


There's a good chance the shop you bought the drive from didn't have SP3 installed. For some reason, SP3 has an issue with USB peripheral devices. Windows has created a patch to rectify the problem. Click on the link below and install the "Fixit" patch to enable your PC to recognize your HD. Best of luck.

I have just bought a WD external hard drive (250GB). i plug it in via USB (2.0) and my computer will not auto install the device. i have no software with the product. help!


If you are running Windows ME, or Windows 2000, or Windows NT, or Windows XP or Windows Vista you do not need any drivers, Windows will detect any USB devices provided the USB device does not draw more power that the USB port can provide.
Your Maxtor external drive shoud have a power adapter connected to it before you insert it into the USB port.
If the Maxtor drive has not been partitioned and formated then you cannot use or see it until you do so.
Your manual should give you instructions to do so.
Basically you need to go into the Control Panel, then Administrative Tools, Then Computer Management, then Disk Management to create a partition and format the drive in NTFS file format if you are using Windows NT, XP or Vista.
