Disconnect the USB drive
Boot to Safe Mode (F8 at boot), then open device manager (Right Click MY Computer, Properties, hardware tab, devicemanager button) then find the USB Root hubs and delete them
Reboot in the normal mode, go back to device manager, usb root hubs, right click each, properties, power management tab, uncheck the check box to let windows power off the hub (On by default)
reboot, connect drive, see if it detects.
If it doesn't. open Disk Management (Click Start, click Run, type compmgmt.msc, and then click OK.
In the console tree, click Disk Management. The Disk Management window appears) http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309000
and see if it is seen then but has a conflict with the drive letter.
If that doesn't resolve, try drive on another system.

Verbatim 1tb external hard drive turning on


Make sure the appropriate drivers are up to date:
http://www.verbatim.com/index/support.php?lang_id=1&cat=9&section=
Try different ports on your machine, reboot your machine, try connecting it to a different computer if possible.

Type in diskmgmt.msc into the search bar, and see if the drive shows up here at all. If it shows up, but doesn't have a drive letter right click and use the assign drive letter option.
Contact verbatim for a replacement cable.

I have all my pictures on a external hardrive and don't know how to get them on to my new computer.


Attach your harddrive to your computer via the cable that came with it.
Chances are it will be a USB connector.
Windows should recognise it and install the drivers automatically.
It will show up as a drive letter in 'My Computer'.

Hi, i'm having trouble getting my computer to recognize my hardrive, it was working fine this morning, but now all i get is a small red light instead of the normal larger rotating blue lights do you what...


Hello,

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.

After making sure about this, power up your system, and plug the harddrive, then Right-Click on my computer icon, select manage, then go to Disk Management Option.

On the Disk management option Page you should see ALL the drives installed on your system, including the hidden ones, so what you will just do is, try and locate the one representing your harddrive, and right click on it. then select "Change Drive letter and Paths", and give the drive any new, unique letter (i.e alphabet) different from the ones already on your system, and click on OK.

This should make your harddrive to be detected automatically.

Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck!

It could be that the OS is not assigning a drive letter to your removable drive. To do this, go to disk management and assign one.



Right-click My Computer then Manage
Click on Disk Management
Right-click the removable drive and click on Change Drive Letter
Assign a drive letter and click OK
Your drive should now show up on My Computer

Hope this helps.

Usb external harddrive


you have to right click on "my computer", select "manager".. there you can find and select "disk management"
in disk management you can find every drive connected to your pc.
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb457110.f12zs01_big(l=en-us).jpg

there you will also see your external drive, and you can start to identify the problem (maybe problem with drive letter allocation, filesystem type..). start by rightclicking in the row of your disk to use the contextual menu.
i know it's just a starting point.. but you definitely a need little more troubleshooting.
