Question about LaCie External USB 2.0 500GB 7200 RPM 500 GB Hard Drive
What I would suggest you should do is this,
First of all make sure that the USB port that you are using to connect it to your PC is a USB 2.0
port, and not USB 1.0.
Also if it came with an external power, connect it to the external power before putting on your PC.
This is because the voltage supplied by USB 1.0 is lower than that of USB 2.0 and therefore
might not be enough to power up your USB Drive.
Then, depending on your operating system,
Right-Click on 'My Computer Icon', then select 'Manage'.
When you get to Computer Management page,
Click on Disk Management on left hand side,
This will display ALL the disks installed on your system, either partitioned or not partitioned,
formatted or not formatted.
Then go to the ones that are hidden, not created, or not displayed, right-click on it, then you'll see
different actions that you can perform.
Also, in some instances, what you just need to do when you get to this page is to assign a new,
distinct, drive letter apart from the ones already in use on the system.
This will automatically bring out the hidden drives.
Hope I have helped you out.
Kindly keep me posted about the problem and let me know how it goes.
Goodluck and thank you for using fixya.
