Hi,

Even though it is possible that your USB hard driveis corrupt, but

before you finally conclude, try out these few troubleshooting

steps.

First of all, it is possible that the USB port that you are using is a

USB 1.0 port, which has a lower voltage not enough to
power on your Storage drive.

In this case, there are two things you can do,

1. Change the USB port you are using for the storage drive to a

USB 2.0 one (Just keep Checking all the ports one by one in case

you dont know which one it is).

2. If your Storage drive has external power facility, just plug it in

an external power first, before connecting it to the system.

If there are no USB 2.0 Ports on your system at all,

then just go to any electronic store and tell them you want to buy

a USB 2.0 Expansion card.

and if it is a laptop, A USB 2.0 PCMCIA card.

Install it on your system, and connect your external drive through it.

Meanwhile, before you try out the second option, test the drive on

a friend's system, that you are sure has a very good system, with

USB 2.0 port.

If after trying out all these, the USB Drive still doesn't work, then

I'm afraid, the drive might have been bad/spoilt.

Kindly keep me posted about the problem and let me know how it goes

Hope this helps you out.

Thank you for using Fixya

Goodluck

A messege is repeated


Hi,

Seems that you've illegally pulled out one removable (pen drive/ext hdd) named "status", on which the write behind cache was enabled.

For resolving this, you need to plugin again the same drive and then remove it legally, i mean, right click on the USB icon on task bar and then say Eject.

One more advice, right click on the properties of the same drive and disable the write behind cache so that in future you wouldn't came across such error for the same drive.

Hope this helps.

Thanks.
