Computer does not recognize new 1TB ext HD

My new cavalry CADB CADB001U32 1TB 2-bay JBOD external hard drive is not recognized by my computer. Light on hard drive is red not blue as shown in illustrations. Does that have anything to do with the problem.

How can I get my computer to recognize and use this hard drive?

First I had to reseat one of the drives which had worked loose and become unseated during shipping. Then I had to format the hard drive and finally I had a 1TB external hard drive I could use. The light is still red.

My computer will not recognize the external HD. I can't format it becuase the system will not even recognize it. HD is a Toshiba PHU1EXB 1TB


Not sure how new your computer is but on some older ones there is not enough power from just one USB port to power the drive correctly. If your drive spins up (sounds like it is revving up) then you should be getting enough power but if not then you will need to purchase a Y USB cable to properly power the drive.

I fixed that problem with a WDC My Book Home 1TB in Windows 7:

The drive was recognized in computer management and in device manager but no drive letter was allocated while connected with a e-sata cable.

1.in computer management > storage > disk management
2.rightclick drive 1 or wathever the number of the WDC drive (which should be basic at this time)
3.select 'convert to dynamic disk'
4.drive should get a drive letter
5.format (warning: all data get lost, but you can download original software from wdc.com)

Succes!

I have a simpletech 1TB ext. hard drive BOM No.


Hi there,

You need to install the hard drive driver for the PC to recognize it. If you don't have one, just look in the internet for a free driver.

The filesystem on the drive could have become corrupt. If you can run a utility on it to see if it finds any problems, that would be the first step. I would try Norton Utilities. Otherwise, try plugging your drive into another computer and see if it can recognize it.

MY 1TB Western DIgital Ext Hard Drive is not recognized


Go to add new hardware wizard. This may not come with a disk if you do have a disk it will ask you to put disk in. If you do not find it there go to the HCL directory of the western digital website for installation directions.

Need help recovering from a Steel Vine software mistake


well..maybe, and that is a major maybe..sometimes, with really good tools, some of that can be recovered, like when a hard drive crashes. assuming there was no other backup, this is problematic. I recommend you seek a really top flight computer person. This will cost a bundle though.
