Computer won't recognize External hard drive

Before reformatting my laptop today I was able to unplug and replug to drive to get XP to recognize it. Now I unplug it and replug it but only get the replug sound with an stutter and the drive won't show up anywhere.

Device is not recognized


Probably not the right answer for your problem. Mine is an external 1 TB Simple Drive. Mine wouldn't respond at all. I unplugged the power cable from the back of the hard drive and replugged it in and instantly it worked. I had tried rebooting the computer, plugging/unplugging over and over into the computer and that didn't work.

Laptop Won't Recognize External HD


You can try opening the device manager in Window XP and uninstall the external hard disk (make sure you show unplugged devices).
Then replug the drive again, and it should reinstall the drivers.

Red Light


The red light came on when I plugged this drive into my laptop and was not recognized -- until I plugged in my laptop power adapter, then it showed right up! If you're on a laptop make sure you have the hard drive power plugged in as well as your laptop power.
