Hi kiran,
If you are using Windows 98 then you have to istalled driver for your external USB HDD.

If you are using Windows XP/Vista then the masstorage drivers for USB HDD is allready installed in your system, as it comes with the OS.
Some time due to conflict or bad contact your system might not read the USB devices:

  • Be sure that switch is on (if there is any switch in USB HDD).
  • Try to check the connection.
  • Try in different USB port.
  • Also check the USB cable is good.
If still no success try to use in another system and let me know your feed back.

Thanks
Iqbal

Maxtor DiamondMax 11 is a SATA Hardisk and you need SATA External Case. After adding the Harddisk, all you have to do is connect it to the system via the cable of the external case. There is no need for additional drivers/ CD as all the external harddisks are 'plug and play'and the Operating System detects them automatically.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Hi my Transcend 320 GB harddisk is not getting detected. Storejet 320Gb


hello

connect the USB external hard disk to usb port by the way disconnect other working harddisks
available on the system, boot the system with bootable cd/floppy go to command prompt and run
chkdsk on this drive

Also download "mbrfix" connect all working harddisks along with the nondetecting harddisk and run mbrfix for the USB defective harddisk

Try using different USB data transfer cable, if power source adapter is used check for rated power output in multimeter for this adapter, if found defective replace it with new/good adapter with same
specifications

Bad luck if harddisk controller has failed you have to go in for new harddisk

GOOD LUCK ooo

Harddisk not detected by system


Do you see the drive light on and can you hear the fan on your disk? If yes then try using a different usb port and a different usb cable. Check to see if there are any other drives with the same drive letter.

You can find this by right mouse clicking my computer, select manage, select disk drive manager see if the drive is recognized and if it trying to use the same letter as another. If so change the letter and it will be seen.

OK the only shot you got is to geta USB to SATA/IDE converter dongle, connect to another PC's USB port. Hopefully, you will be able to read it. Otherwise still plugged in you may be able to use recovery software and get you DATA back. Recover my files is one,

Toshiba StorE ALU 3.5" external HDD stops out of the blue.


Toshiba could only replace my HD after destroying the data on it, So I just bought a separate empty HD casing instead and opened the Toshiba casing and took out the Western Digital Harddisk. The harddisk was perfectly working, It seems that the Toshiba controller in their casing got messed up. (Never a Toshiba for me, because by solving the problem myself in the appropriate manner I lost their useless warranty).

HDD enclosure does not work


For that you need to uninstall all usb driver from device manager.
Right click on my computer icon then you see system property then go to hardware -> device manager then uninstall usb drivers 1 by 1 .
Then restart computer then all usb drivers are automatically installed.
Then connect your harddrive if still face same problem then connect your harddrive to another computer then check.
If another computer cant see your harddisk then your harddisk has hardware issue.
It need repairing .
If it is in warrenty take it to service shop they replaced it.

New external harddisk cant be detected on my computer


Since you have not given any specifications about model of your HDD hence I'd consider your HDD connects through USB. Your USB driver is old you shall consider upgradation.

External hard disk not being detected by computer


Dear,
Now it is clear that your system is of good configuration and the fault was occurred due to removing of power supply directly. Do one thing check the same drive on another pc with good configuration. If same thing will happen, then you can visit your nearest service centre but remember it should be in warranty period.

Thanks and regards,
Rakesh Kumar
