SOURCE: 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.

Hi, I have one IBM Travelstar USB 2.0 external hard, suddenly now it is not deducting and the light which is there in USB device, some time it is green and red alternatively.. Pls help to resolve this...


if your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again, sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems
hope this helps

Connect external hard disk IBM travel star 80GB USB port 2


Unless it's windows 98 you don't need a driver. If your computer can't see it, it's probably broken. Try plugging it in to another computer and see if it can see it

My thinkpad doesnt works!


If you can, upgrade to WinXP (or LINUX) which will make things easier, or else use the re-install disk for your laptop. If you really want Win2000 to work and have lost your original disks, you need to download the appropriate drivers for that machine and install them under Win2000. It is the only way to get things up and running again. Make sure in device manager there are no yellow marks showing error state devices.

Don't use a driver management or automated program to install the drivers; download them one by one from the IBM web site and install and reboot cycle each one separately.

Good luck...
