From what you describe it sounds like the drive itself has given up, return it as faulty. your data may be lost.

Hello,

Go back on Device Manager, right-click the HDD and choose 'Uninstall'. Go through this then unplug and plug back in the HDD. Hopefully if the drivers you downloaded are installed it will recognise it first time.

My External Hard Drive isn't working anymore, to say the just of it. It's on, lights on(not flashing, it flashes when it's being written to or accessed), usually has a regular clicking noise from it...


When a hard drive makes a clicking noise, this indicates the hard drive has failed and if the BIOS and the Computer Management does not detect it, then this confirm a hard disk failure.
To get the computer operating again, replace the hard disk, then install Windows on the hard disk using the Windows installation CD and the Windows product installation code that is on the label on the computer then install the device drivers and your programs.

Hi, im having problem with my windows usb it cannot be detected by my windows xp.. in the device manager the mass storage device is marked (x) on it. what would i do to make this functional on my...


First of all try changing the usb port you are using I am sure that there will be more than one usb ports in your PC. After this try using another similar USB device.
I mean if you are trying to plug in a Flash drive use a different one or If you are trying to connect an external Hard Disk (as it is obvious from the mass storage device marked with an x as you have pointed out). Try using a different External Hard Disk that you may borrow from someone checks will help you locate the problem. The reason why your USB device is not being detected by your PC must be the driver of the USB drive is out dated. Check the version of the USB Is it 2.0? or the driver might have been corrupt.
You can download USB Mass storage driver from the following site. You can search for USB drivers on other sites also.

Need driver


Hello maris12345

You shouldn't need drivers for your USB mass storage device on Windows XP. It should be "plug-n-play".

Is yours an older computer? If the computer's USB interface (hardware) is not at least USB ver 1.1 then that may be the problem. (I assume your external hard drive isn't being detected, yes?)

Can you run other USB devices on the same port(s) OK?
