Your external hard drive likely has no partitions so Windows has no drive to mount. Follow these steps to create and format a partition for your external hard drive.

1. Press Win+R to open the Run command.
2. Type "Control" into the dialog box.
3. Double-click Administrative Tools.
4. Double-click Computer Management.
5. Select Disk Management under Storage.
6. Find the 250 GB External Hard drive in the right pane.
7. Right click on the drive and select "Create new partition".
8. After the partition is created you will need to format the partition.
9. Format the partition as NTFS unless you plan on booting off the hard drive, in which case format the partition as FAT32. You can also create multiple partitions if you want.
10. Enter My Computer and you will now see your external hdd.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

On the MP3 player, go to settings > system, put the USB mode to MSC, then reconnect to the computer, computer will read, the device is currently on MTP and your computer doesnt have driver so that is why its not recognizing.

Hp a720n put a sd card in and it doesnt read it or if u click my computer it doesnt show up need a driver or something to fix it where can i find it i went to hp website but could find a driver


I had the same problem. Turns out that the SD Card reader will only recognize cards with a capacity of 2GB or less. It won't read my 4GB or 16GB cards, but will read my 2GB and 8MB(!) cards.

Computer can't find my camara


if it doesnt recognize the device it means that the driver is not compatible find a suitable driver ...this happens when the driver was for vista and you use xp ...or otherwise...or ...maybe you just do not installed it proper..
please let me know the operating system you use and the camera model ...and I will find a solution ...also ...take a better look on the camera cd sometimes it has drivers for all operating ...systems and install the right one ...
If it has its own programs for managing pictures install that too and use the import feature from the program ...if you do not have a cd ...but only the driver ..install an acdsee picture manager and use the import from device feature from there ...it has to work
