    I used the USB Stick for quite a while now. No problems so far. But today, my Windows XP computer does not recognize the usb stick anymore.
    The last time I used the usb stick was on another Windows XP system.
    Is there a driver available?

Hi there what type of computer are you using and what operating system windows xp or windows vista ? and did you go to the windows update website to get all of the current drivers and patches to recognize all new items being sold these days eg cameras usb drives and such did you try plugging into a different highspeed usb port ? are you using a usb expansion hub this gives you more usb ports for many things like printers and scanners and such . go to www.windowsupdate.com and get all avail updates for software and hardware ok good luck waiting on a fixya rating to see how this project went

Samsung M3 Portable Drive Diagnostic Fail Message


I would try creating a new folder (maybe TEST) on your portable drive, and saving 3-4 files (as copies) from your hard drive, say, a MS Word file, an Excel file and a .jpg picture. Close down your computer, remove the portable drive. Then start up computer again, when ready insert portable drive.
See if your computer recognises it, and then try to open the files you saved onto it. If that is OK it sounds like you do not have a problem. But treat it with caution for a week or two.

My WD Passport sounds like a machine running, but my computer doesn't recognise it. I also do not see the lights at the insertion site. Please help, Thanks, Naveen


The lights signal data transfer so no lights = no transfer. It's clear that the hard disk inside your Passport has failed and, since it can't be repaired, all the data was lost and the unit is dead.
Buy a new one.

PC not recognising Iomega Prestige 320gb usb portable hard drive. I've connected it all up, disconnected, reconnected, rebooted the computer, but the drive is just not recognised and does not show up in...


Does the drive show in Device Manager? Right click on 'My Computer' and select properties, the open device manager.. Navigate down to Disk Drives or Hard Drives, click on the plus sign and see if your drive is listed. If it is, then right click on the drive name and open properties for the drive. Click on the 'Volumes' tab and hit the 'Populate Button'. It may be the disk just needs initialising, then reformatting before you can use it. If it does need initializing, a wizard should appear to guide you through the process!
If this doesn't solve your problem, try using a different USB cable and/or USB ports on your computer, and ensure to unplug all other USB devices other than keyboard & mouse.

If you use Windows XP: Right click on "My Computer", click Manage. Select Disk Management under Storage. If you can see your portable HD, does it have a drive letter assigned to it? If not, Right click on it at the top right panel, select "Change Drive Letter and Paths...". Then assign an unused letter that does not associated with any Network Drives.
