In the Disk Management section, right click on it, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths. Then assign it a free letter for it to pop up as. Like F, G, H or something. Then Click OK.

What I believe happened was that it was formatted, and the computer did not automatically set aide a letter drive for it, so you need to do it manually. It shouldn't give you any more problems from there now.

Please rate :-)

Is my simple tech 60GB compatable with windows 7 the disk said for windows 2000 and xp


Most portable hard drives work with any operating system

Plug and Play is a simple Windows controller that enables your Windows computer to recognize and adjust to hardware changes and devices plugged on your computer such as hard drives, memory cards and USB and Firewire-powered devices with little or no input from a user. If your system is not recognizing plugged-in hardware, the plug-and-play device may be disabled and may cause instability on your system. Enabling this feature is simple.

Click "Start" on your computer screen and then click "Run." Type in services.msc on the run window and hit "Enter." Scroll down the services window and right-click "Plug and Play." Click "Properties" on the pop-up menu. Select "Automatic" under start-up type if it is disabled. Click "OK" to save the changes. Click "Start" on your screen and click "Control Panel." Double-click "System" and click the "Hardware" tab. Click the "Device Manager" button and then right-click the plug-and-play device you want to enable, then click "Enable." Close the device manager. Hope this helps.

USB Printer does not recognize with XP Computer


In most cases, the driver for a printer is supplied when you purchase it. It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to provide the driver along with the device to make sure the working.

However, most of the Operating Systems come with native driver support for many known printers. This is the fact we have to take care while purchasing a printer. Even though we misplaced the driver disc, if we purchase a good manufacturer printer, there is a chance to get the native support from Operating System itself.


There are some scenarios where printer may not be recognized by the Operating System due to some conflict with other devices.


Please follow the troubleshooting steps and check the operation:
  • Ensure that the supplied USB cable is firmly connected to both the printer and computer side.

  • Ensure that the USB driver for the printer has been properly installed. Please follow the steps to ensure that:
  1. Turn ON the computer and then printer.
  2. The Add New Hardware Wizard window will appear on the Computer screen.
  3. Click the Next button
  4. Insert the installation CD in to the CD/DVD drive on the Computer.
  5. In the Add New Hardware Wizard window, click to select the CD-ROM drive.
  6. Click the Next button.
  7. In the Finish Setup dialog box, click the Finish button.
  • If the USB driver for the Printer has already been installed, uninstall and then reinstall the driver.
Follow this procedure to reinstall the device driver using the Device Manager utility.


IMPORTANT: This procedure must be performed while logged in as Administrator or to an account with Administrator rights.
  1. Click the Start button, and then click Control Panel.
  2. In the Control Panel window, under Pick a category , double-click the Performance and Maintenance icon.
  3. In the Performance and Maintenance window, under or pick a Control Panel icon, double-click the System icon.

  7. Under the Device Manager category, click to select the device to be removed.
  8. On the menu bar, click Action.
  9. On the Action menu, click Uninstall .
  10. In the Confirm Device Removal window, click the OK button.
  11. Restart the computer.
NOTE: For some devices the operating system will display a System Settings Change window. Click the Yes button to restart the computer. When the computer restarts, the operating system will find the device and install the driver. If the operating system is unable to automatically find the driver, have the installation wizard search the C:WINDOWSI386 folder.
  • Remove and reconnect the printer.

Hi Andrea I have just connected a hard drive to my Laptop and it isn't recogized.. can you help. I'm running on Windows XP Thanks Ian


Not Andrea, just wanted to offer;

1) Installed a new larger Harddrive for the laptop?
There is a special procedure for this. Depends on what laptop we're discussing here.
A new harddrive will have no operating system on it. BIOS needs to recognize the harddrive.

{When you press the Power On button of your laptop, the first chipset to receive power is the BIOS chipset. BIOS looks to see what devices are installed, does a Ram Memory count, turns the Processor on, and hands the laptop over to the Operating System. WinXP is one example of an O/S }

Some laptops have a procedure where basic info is stored until the new harddrive is installed. Then the basic info is transferred to the new harddrive.

In any case I suggest going into the BIOS Setup, and on the main page see if the Harddrive is recognized.
It will be listed.
If it isn't listed you have to manually set the harddrive's parameters. (Type them in)
The Cylinders, Heads, and Sectors.

When BIOS recognizes the harddrive, then you can install Windows XP off of the Restoration Disk, (Repair. Also know as Non-Destructive Installation), or a fresh, new genuine copy.

2) If this is a reference to an external harddrive, there may be an electronic problem with the unit.
The main problem that happens with an external harddrive, is the small circuit board inside goes bad.

This small circuit board is an Interface Board.
It connects to the Harddrive inside the case of the external harddrive, and allows a USB cable to be used.

If this is found to be the problem simply remove the harddrive inside, and install it into an economical external enclosure.

Awaiting further information so I know what we are dealing with.

A) Is this a reference to a new harddrive being installed into the laptop?
If so, laptop manufacturer name, and Model Number.
(Bottom of laptop in a white Service Tag, or sticker)

B) Is this a reference to an extermal harddrive?
Manufacturer name, and Model Number

Regards,

My sata external usb western digital 320 gb drive only shows up as an unknown USB device. Is there any way to get my computer to recognize it. I have a laptop using windows xp. Ive tried unplugging...


First make sure usb cable connected to harddrive is working fine.
try it in different usb ports.
Press windows key +R key so you can see run then type in run "devmgmt.msc" then press ok so you can see device manager uninstall all usb drivers then it automatic install usb drivers.
then check.
Also you need to change registry for that type in run "regedit" then press ok then you can see registry editor then locate below key.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11­CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
And remove upper filter and lower filter.Then restart computer then check.
If your harddrive still not recognized then you need to repair your harddrive.Try your harddrive in different computer if it is not recognized on another computer then your harddrive has internal issue.

Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa

My glyph is not loading and i did nothing wrong or weird to it, i want to smash it now!


Did you format the Glyph tabletop harddrive? If you didn't format it, it won't work.

Your Operating System is not stated, so let me give you an example using Windows XP. (Home or Pro doesn't matter)

Power cord plugged into the Glyph harddrive, and plugged into a surge protector, 6-pin Firewire cable, or 9-pin Firewire cable from Glyph to computer plugged in, Glyph power turned on, computer on, Windows loaded,

1.Left-click on Start, then Right-click on My Computer. Left-click on Manage, in the small fly-out menu.

2.In the Computer Management window, under Storage, click on Disk Management. The Write Signature wizard will pop up.

3.Use the wizard to write a signature to the new drive. The drive must be named. Name it what you want. (Drive 2; My Drive; Storage 2: Your name;
whatever you wish)
This drive must be named, or Windows won't be able to find it.

4.Now I suggest just making one partition, and it will be the Primary partition. Do this by selecting the Maximum Size. (Partitioning: Think of your harddrive as a large room. A Partition is a wall, dividing the room into two rooms. This time you won't be dividing the room. You will use the whole room. 250 GigaBytes of it) Choose -> NTFS.
Follow the instructions, let it format the harddrive.

You should be good to go now.

Hard drive crash, not usable at all; downloaded xp drivers and computer drivers but cannot get them installed. Hard drive not recognized.


When you install a new harddrive, it has no Operating System on it.
Windows XP and Windows Vista, are examples of an Operating System.

Each laptop manufacturer, has their own system of changing a laptop harddrive. Some allow you to press a key or two, to put the laptop in a state where it will save the basic Operating System files, and when you install the new harddrive, it will transfer them over to it.

Some laptop manufacturers do have this option.

You either have to take the harddrive out, install it into an external enclosure for a harddrive, (Uses a USB cable) Then attach the external enclosure via the USB cable, to another computer, and use a 'mirror' imaging program to save the Operating System to that computer.

Then the new harddrive is installed in that external enclosure, and the Operating System is 'mirrored' over to it.

Just information for you, as you cannot do this now with a crashed harddrive.
Your option now, is to buy a genuine copy of the Operating System you had on the laptop, and install it.
Not what you wanted to hear, huh?

You need to buy whatever version of Windows XP it had, (WinXP Home or WinXP Pro), or Windows Vista.
If it was Windows Vista, I suggest getting at least the Windows Vista Home Premium version.

I personally prefer Xp over Vista.
Tigerdirect.com, and Newegg.com, have these.
Look for Software>Operating Systems.

OR, you can simply put Ubuntu Linux on it for free.

Won't do anything after computer recognizes it.


you need to go to the administrative tools/storage and ensure that the drive is partitioned properly for the operating system to see it, once partitioned you will need to format the drive.
