Hello, verified if your hard disk is properly installed in the closure, don't forget to format your hard drive in NTFS.
if your problem persist maybe need to check your USB connections in device manager.
My USB Controller finds it an I see it in my computer devices, but it do not gets a hard drive letter, so I can not access to my files on it. Yesterdey it worked properly. Can You explain me what happend and how can I get to my files?
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.
