Usually a brand new HDD needs to be formatted.
Have you done that?
If not, then you should do as follows:
Right click on My Computer, click on manage.
A new window, called Computer Management. will appear.
Click the option Disk Management from the left pane.
On the right you will see ALL the drives connected to your computer.
Select the one you want top format, right click it and choose FORMAT.
When the process is completed, you'll be able to see and use your new HArd drive.
Hope this helps.

My signature mini hd doesnt work........


With this situation, only a data recovery company can help you. I am afraid that there is some mechanical damage to either the case or the hard drive. If you can remove the case and test the drive, you may be half way there, but if drive is clicking, it is best you leave it to professional data recovery. That is what I do, but you don't have to send it to me. You can bring it to your local shop to see if they can help.

Computer doesn't recognize the external drive


I asume the connection is via an USB?
Try another usb-port and see if that helps, if not try to connect the disc on another PC (maybe a friends pc) and see is that pc recognize the disc.

Good luck!
