Doesn't work, cable problem, don't recognize

Some external storage devices work poorly or not at all when connected to a hub; try connecting the drive directly to a port on the computer. Also check if it's detected in "Disk Management". Here you can verify if the partition and format are correct for the Operating System. Check the Drive's status in Device manager. This will verify if the external drive has a drive letter designation. Check Partition and Format. Log in as Administrator account in windows or any other account with administrative privileges Insert your removable disk into the USB port. Click Start, right click on computer and select manage. Now, click Disk Management. Check whether drive letter for the device is present. Check the lower window to find whether the device is detected (such as Disk 1, Disk 2, etc). If the device is detected with a drive letter, verify that no other device is using that drive letter. If it is, change it to unused drive letter. Hope this helps.

My external wd elements not reading and the light in the hardisk is on but not blinking


Could have picked up a virus from your friends computer, or the device is just on the fritz. It also could have been corrupted. When removing an external hard drive you should always go to the bottom right click on the little green arrow icon and select "safely remove <your device>" otherwise you risk corrupting the files on it. Plug in the hard drive to your computer. Right click on Computer/My Computer and select Manage. Click on Disk Management on the left side. If your device shows up then the drive most likely has corrupted files or the file table. Right click on your device and initialize it if it isn't and then format the device and it will work again. You will lose all your data in the process. You can download Recurva from piriform.com to try and recover your files if you like. If the device doesn't show at all in disk management then I'd say its toast.

Not recognice by usb hard


A USB hard drive is a portable external storage device that works just like a conventional hard drive.

The device is simply plugged into a USB port on your computer as you would connect a flash drive.


Unlike a flash drive, however, a USB hard drive can store a much larger amount of data.


If your computer will not recognize your USB hard drive, you can try troubleshooting steps to resolve the problem.

Plug one end of the USB cable into the port on your hard drive and plug the other end into the USB port of your computer. Ensure that both ends of the cable are connected securely.


Open "My Computer" (Windows XP) or "Computer" (Windows Vista/7).

The USB device should be listed as "removable disk" once it is plugged into the computer.


If it is not listed among the available drives on your computer, proceed to the next step.

Ensure that the data cable is working properly.


Try another USB cable if you have one available.

Disconnect all other USB devices from the computer as they may interfere with the operating system detecting the external hard drive.

Reboot the computer if the USB hard drive is still not recognized.


Plug the USB cable into another USB port and check to see if the device is detected.

If you are using a USB hub, remove the device and plug the external hard drive directly into a USB port.


If the computer still fails to recognize the device, the external hard drive itself may be experiencing a hardware problem.


Check the status of the hard drive in the "Device Manager" window. Under Windows XP, right click "My Computer" and select "Device Manager."


For Windows Vista and Windows 7, click the "Windows" button in the lower left corner of the screen, then type "Computer Management" in the search bar and press "Enter."


Select "Device Manager" in the "Computer Management" window. In the Device Manager window, click the "+" sign that appears beside "Disk Drives."


If the external drive is not listed, click "Other Devices" in the Device Manager window and see if an "Unknown Device" appears.


The external hard drive may have been detected but the device is not working properly.

If it is still under warranty, take the device to the computer store where it was purchased to have it repaired or replaced.


Hope this helps

USN external harddisk


You shouldnt need drivers unless its a Windows 98 PC. Right click my computer and select manage, when the box pops up select disk management. You should be able to see the drive and format it for use.
