Check if you hard drive is listed in Device Manager (System properties->Hardware->Device..) at Disk drives section (press + to list drives). If you can see 2 hard drives (I suppose the Quantum is the 2nd hdd in your pc) then maybe you should create a partition on it and format the new partition (you can do that from Disk Management section of Computer Management (Control panel ->Administrative tools -> Computer Management). If your hard drive is not listed in Device manager then it's not correctly connected or it's damaged (or, as I remember in a few cases this model was not compatible with some types of mainboards).

If this is the solution for your problem, please rate my post, otherwise give us more details.

1000 verbatim hard drive not showing

In most versions of Windows :
Right-click on "Computer" and click "Manage" (terms may vary from a version of Windows to another).
On window "Computer Management", left panel, under "Storage" click "Disk management".
In the main panel, graphical part, does your drive appear ?
If it does, you've just got to give it back it's usual letter : right-click on the partition with no letter, and choose "Change Drive Letter".

I am using segate u series ST340810 hard disk. when I am formatting this hard disk this hard disk does not shows partition to format and shows messege of disk cannot access what should I do?

Hello Ravindr,

After connecting the Segate Hard Drive in your computer go to Control Panel. In Control Panel you will the option Administrative Tool. In Administrative Tool open the Computer Management and you will find the number of attached Hard Drive and the Partitions they have. If the Hard Drive you have attached is not showing the partition then there may some physical damage with the Hard Drive media. Please get your Hard Drive checked by Segate professionals and then replace the Hard Drive with new one.

You wouldn't want to look in the Control Panel for your drive to access your files. You would want to look in My Computer (2000/xp) or Computer (vista/7). If they are not showing up in My Computer or Computer.

I cannot see my 'Seagate Expansion 640 GB USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive' listed in 'My Computer' as an option. I need to backup files and cannot drag them to the external hard drive since it does...

Hello, if the drive is new it may just need to be formatted, if it's an existing drive it may have a failed partition.

If it's new, connect it to the computer, right-click on your My Computer or Computer icon and left-click manage. When the management console opens left-click Disk Management, then scroll through the right panel and find your 640GB drive. As long as it's there and unallocated you can right click on the unallocated space and select format. Follow the wizard using the default settings. When you're finished it should show up in My Computer.

If this is an existing drive and has failed, proceed to the management console and see if it shows up, if it does make note of all information show in the right panel and either way report back for further assistance by reply to this response.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Drive will not show up on 'my computer'


Ok, this might just fix your problem. The thing is, if you have more than one drive attatched to your computer, the drive letters of the drives may overlap, causing some drives not to show in My computer.

Just follow these steps and you might be able to fix the problem.

Go to:
Control panel
Administrative tools
Computer Management
Disc Management
Now you should be able to see your drive in the schematic shown below.

Right click on the drive and choose to change drive letter or paths. If there is no drive letter assigned to your external, assign one, if there already is a drive letter assigned to the drive, change it.

Hope this can help you.

Kind regards

Wd 500 not showing

It may be in raw format. Go to Control Panel-Administrative Tools- Computer Management- Disk Management. It will show all your drives and their formats. You can format from there if you need to.
