SOURCE: Unrecognized FANTOM HDD volume

From your description you seem to have a problem with the boot record on the external hard disk. There are tools that can sometimes recover such problems. I read about it in an article about external hard disk troubleshooting. No personal experience with such tools though.

If the drive is working on your Windows XP system then most likely the drive letter that was assigned to the drive got bump by another device. The link below will help you assign another drive letter to the drive.

Not recognice by usb hard


A USB hard drive is a portable external storage device that works just like a conventional hard drive.

The device is simply plugged into a USB port on your computer as you would connect a flash drive.


Unlike a flash drive, however, a USB hard drive can store a much larger amount of data.


If your computer will not recognize your USB hard drive, you can try troubleshooting steps to resolve the problem.

Plug one end of the USB cable into the port on your hard drive and plug the other end into the USB port of your computer. Ensure that both ends of the cable are connected securely.


Open "My Computer" (Windows XP) or "Computer" (Windows Vista/7).

The USB device should be listed as "removable disk" once it is plugged into the computer.


If it is not listed among the available drives on your computer, proceed to the next step.

Ensure that the data cable is working properly.


Try another USB cable if you have one available.

Disconnect all other USB devices from the computer as they may interfere with the operating system detecting the external hard drive.

Reboot the computer if the USB hard drive is still not recognized.


Plug the USB cable into another USB port and check to see if the device is detected.

If you are using a USB hub, remove the device and plug the external hard drive directly into a USB port.


If the computer still fails to recognize the device, the external hard drive itself may be experiencing a hardware problem.


Check the status of the hard drive in the "Device Manager" window. Under Windows XP, right click "My Computer" and select "Device Manager."


For Windows Vista and Windows 7, click the "Windows" button in the lower left corner of the screen, then type "Computer Management" in the search bar and press "Enter."


Select "Device Manager" in the "Computer Management" window. In the Device Manager window, click the "+" sign that appears beside "Disk Drives."


If the external drive is not listed, click "Other Devices" in the Device Manager window and see if an "Unknown Device" appears.


The external hard drive may have been detected but the device is not working properly.

If it is still under warranty, take the device to the computer store where it was purchased to have it repaired or replaced.


Hope this helps

Pc recognizes the device in device manager list but not in my computer window


You could check Computer Management > Disk Management. It should show up. If it does not a have drive letter it is not recognizing the format structure and sees it as new. I would test on a different system before committing to any changes.

sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable


just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems

if this fails to fix the problem
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps

My computer doesnt recognize Fantom Drive titanium II. i am having windows 7 installed in my system. please help how to solve this problem


Dose it show up as drive letter E:/ under device manager in disk drives?(Check out:right clicking my computer icon on your desktop,select disk manager)
If so,try right clicking on my computer and selecting map network drive.(You'll get the same results by right clicking on network neighborhood icon on your desktop and selecting map network drive.)This is the method many people use to assign a drive name (i.e.,letter) to a drive.Then you can recover data from hard drive with data recovery software like Tenorshare Data Recovery.It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data.You can get it here: http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoveryprofessional.htm

My 1 TB fantom green drive driver has been lost, what do i do?


There's no need for any software -- USB devices are designed to be "plug-and-play" -- the Operating System should recognize the device, and make it ready to be used.

Not recognized


This may not be the external hard drive issue. Check your USB driver, under device manager. You might need to upgrade the driver. If you plug your external to another computer, you will see that is it working ok. Just re-installing XP might have not installed USB drive properly.
