When I plug in the HDD16 into the USB my computer says devise is not recognised


Please clean the usb cable. Use a cotton swab with Alcohol on it. (Not dripping). You may need to use a few. If that fails to help, try another usb device in your PC & check if the PC can see that device. The cable could be defective. The FAT on the drive could have been damaged or the drives file system could be corrupt. The usb port could be loose from plugging in & out. If your OS is Vista that can be the problem. Try a Pc running XP.
Please check these links for more options.
