When this happens, the hardware is recognized but the drive has probably gone bad. I would recommend replacing the drive. var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_ab0f421bee8048f7b0952c82e14fbd4d(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_2b0fb69882a443e693d3245e53a158c0(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); }

Cd player dont work


Is it a CD player? Are you trying to play DVDs? Does the CD player show up in device manager? (Right click "My Computer", click Properties, Hardware Tab, Device Manager. If it doesn't show up at all then the drive probably needs to be replaced.

External Hard Drive connected but hidden !!!


Connect it to your computer.
Right click on my computer and select Manage
On the left side click on Disk management.

Now on the right side, look around and see if you spot the external drive there.

What do you see there?

Also look into device manager, then look for anything with ! or ? yellow marks.

My external hard drive is unreadable


Does you drive make any sounds like these? If yes you have a mechanical problem and you should get a specialist to work on it. If not - try to remove the drive from USB casing and connect it directly to your PC or put into another USB enclosure. This should help if the problem is with the enclosure itself and not with the drive.

Acer aspire can't find the dvd to play cd's


In the device manager, select the DVD ROM and UNINSTALL / REMOVE the device.  Restart Windows . . . did this work?  If not, boot into your CMOS and see if the drive is being detected by the motherboard... if yes, look further and make sure the settings for the drive are correct. Make sure that all IDE interfaces are enabled in the CMOS settings (both)

Sandisk crezer 4GB micro wont work


Try this,
Note:I assume you are on win XP.

Right click on my  computer and click manage.
Now on left side please select Device manager and look on the right side if you have any device that says "Unknow Device" or any device that is showing an Exclaimation Mark. If any of this exists then right click on that and uninstall. After this unplug your Flash drive and restart your computer and try inserting flash drive if it works or not.
If not, again go to device manager and expand an option that says "Disc Drives". Please check if it shows anything related to your Cruzer Flash Drive. If it's there, then go to Disc Management that will be there on left side of this same window. There, you need to look for your Removable disc and right click on it and click change drive letter. Now choose a different drive letter preferable one of the last alphabets like Z. After this click OK and now try going to my computer to check if it appears or not.
Moreover, if none of these solutions work please get back to me with some more info like if you have U3  on your Cruzer that comes preinstalled on your flash drive and the version of your OS.

Click repair and follow the on-screen prompts.

When prompted, disconnect the player and power on.

Player will show "Loading" and then shut down.

Power on again.

Player will show "Updating" and then shut down again.

Player can now be powered up as normal.
