Go to computer management by right clicking 'my computer' then selecting 'manage'. Then select disk management. Find your externel hard drive there ( it should be there). Then right click on it, and choose assign drive letter. Just choose a letter in the middle of the alphabet like N or O, then enter. You should see the icon of your external hard drive inside 'my computer'.

    You made my day. I was ready to throw a very good Toshiba external hard drive away. After making it visible and cleaning it up, it now works very well. Thank you! Thank you!

you will need to update/reinstall drivers

right click to reinstall drivers

ports(com&lpt)right click update driver


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,



if you can see your usb drive but its not working

ports (com&lpt) right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem


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 to a computer and its parts

My portable toshiba 500GB HD drive cant be detected by the computer. You hear the click sound my times like its trying to access it but nothing shows. Also the light is blinking.


That's the click of death - the actual hard disk inside the drive is damaged. The disk is dead, unfixable. Either just buy a complete new unit or dismantle it and replace the actual hard disk with a new one.

External 500gb hard drive not readable


Check the partition size in Disk Management (if running Win7 - download a free Partition Manager if not) and see if the system is seeing the partition correctly. Seagate has recovery software available on their website but you may just have to repartition and reformat.
