I feel like the device should show up in "My Computer" unless it is defective. However, there is some Vista Security Software and a downloadable pdf file on the Verbatim Website that describes driver issues with the Store and Go. See URL below

Normally, these things only need drivers for win98SE

It is possible that it's coming in under an existing drive letter, and therefore unable to show.

You need to go into the PC Manage window. On XP or Vista right click on My Computer and choose Manage.
Under the Storage area, you'll see / Click it - Disk Management. This will display all devices connected, wether or not they have a drive letter assigned.
Warning ! Don't mess around here, you can do serious damage.
Look for your device in the list of drives.. You should be able to tell by the name..
Right click on the device and choos Change Drive Letter andpick a letter that's not used by anything else, even your usb flash drive,. Like K. Apply changes and exit.. Reboot..
That's it.. If that was the problem, it is now fixed. If not fixed, that was not the problem.

My pc doesn't recognize my verbatim 1000gb external hard drive, error "unknown device"


Did the 1000gb external hd come with instructions?
Did you read them?
Did you Install The Software for this Device?

If not. Try plugging it in all the usb ports.
Try shutting down the PC, when it's off plug in the 1000gb external HD,
Restart the Computer, If Windows still dosen't recognize it, then it's most likely defective, and should be returned. Try purchasing a higher quality brand.

My verbatim usb external hard drive quit working on only one of my computers. I tried using computer management but it doesn't recognize it there. it does show up as Toshiba in the device manager but...


The brand of your HD is Verbatim, so it should not show up as Toshiba in the Device Manager. Your computer is detecting another device.

Please do not rely on the Device Manager, you have to check the Disk Management instead. If the HD did not show up in the Disk Management, try connecting the HD into another USB ports of the problem computer. It could only be the USB ports of the problem computer is bad.

How many computers do you have? If you have 3 PCs and only one computer is having a problem, then you might need to update the USB driver of the problem computer.

Have a great day!

Where do i install the adapter on my computer


Hello,

You plug the device into power and install a USB cable to the back of the device, then you plug the other end into your computer's USB Slot.

Windows will probley install the drivers for you but if not put the CD your manufacture gave you.

After installation you will see the device as a hard drive under My Computer it may also be called a Mas storage device or Removable Media

Give that a try, it should work for you.
