Why will my verbatim 250 gb external hard drive will not show up in the computor or on a media player connected the tv ?

Hard drive could have damaged file system which would require a repair. Hard drive may have failed. Just listen for a clicking sound. If you hear it, your drive is bad.

My mac cannot read my Samsung G3 Station

Yeah that does sound like a potential failure in the harddrive itself. I would advise taking it to a local computer repair shop that can diagnose the hard drive. They will tell you if its failing or not. Typically these diagnostics are free depending where you take it.

Also yes encrypting hard drives are good for protecting your data from unwanted access, however when you do encrypt it and then the hard drive starts to fail, it becomes very difficult for data recovery.

Hello, I formatted my external hard drive Samsung G2 HX-MU050DC and i lost the drivers. I can not find drivers. Can you help me please? Because i can no longer read the files that are on it. Thank you...

According to the microsoft site your external hard drive which is the Samsung G2 HX-MU050DC doesn't need any additional software it is automatically installed when connected..Maybe try to connect it to other USB port I preferred you connect it at the back of your CPU..If this doesn't work try to connect your external hard drive to other computer if it still doesn't work. sad to say but the problem is your external hard drive..

My external samsung nm-0802 cannot seen in my computer i am using window xp operating system on desktop.what is the solution?

Go to Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management Then go into Disk Management. Hopefully you will see a drive with a capacity of about 480 GB (plus or minus), that's your disk.
Right click on it and select change drive letter and change the drive letter to something that isn't in use.
If that doesn't work or it doesn't show up, go into the Device Manager from the Computer Management screen and see if there is anything under disk drives with a yellow or red symbol next to it. If so, right click it, select uninstall, then unplug the disk drive and plug it back in.

Samsung LA40C530 LCD USB limit

I have tested the LA40C530 Samsung with a 300GB external hard disk and it works well without any issue. My guess is that it should support 500GB as well. I have played video/music/pictures on my WD 300GB HDD.

Hard drive not recognized by my computor . When you plug the drive into the USB, you hear the upload tone but the icon does not appear in the "My Computor" screen. Therefore I cannot access the files...


Follow these steps and you should be able to fix your problem.

Go to:

control panel
Administrative tools
computer management
Disc management

Now you should be able to see your drive in the schematic below. Right click the drive you cannot see in My computer and choose the option to change drive letters or paths. Now if there is no drive letter that is assigned to the drive it will not show in my computer, now just assign a letter, restart, and it should work.

Hope this can be of help.

Best regards

I have an Elements 250G working fine until my computor started to wear out, and wouldn't show that my hard drive was there, I now have another computor, plugged in Hard drive, and the computor says it's...

If the disk is recognized, you can go to the Disk Management console (right-click My Computer and select Manage in the popup menu). There the disk should be listed, and you can check if it is partitioned and formatted.

Also check the drive letter assignment for the disk, if there is a conflict with some other device one of both will not show. You can simply change the drive letter.

Maxtor external hard drive takes all system resources from pc


I hate to be the one to say this but the reason you are seeing the spike in CPU usage when you connect the hard drive is because the computer is trying to read the hard drive and the hard is beginning to go bad, I would recommend taking the hard drive to a repair shop mom and pop type they often have the best rates and ask them to recover the data.

Treat the hard drive as if it were an egg bumps can make it very difficult to recover your data that you need. That is if you have any..
I deal with hard drives for a living this happens to my laptop and quad core desktop all the time but i am always able to get the data if they bring it to me before it gets worse

DONT RUN THE HARD DRIVE time is critical...

I wish you the best of luck

Thank you
