Trekstor external hard drive (DSMNU-S-JM-a) is on (blue light) but the device no longer shows up on the computer. Can't be accessed.


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this file recovery program called asoftech data recovery to recover your files.

My computer sees that the ext. drive is being connected but does not show it listed on "My Computer" and therefore makes the data on the ext. drive inaccessable.


Hello, I suspect your external has not been assigned a drive letter and so cannot be mounted by windows. To confirm:

1. Open start menu, right-click my computer and click manage. Then click disk management
2. Check if your external is listed and if a drive letter has been assigned, if not:
3. Right click on your external, choose change drive letter and paths, click add and then assign a drive letter. Choose ok and you are good to go.

Other causes of this problem may be a hard-drive errors or a faulty cable.

When plugged into my computer, it acknowledges that it's been plugged in, however when i go to my computer to access my files, the folder doesn't show up.


Nalon:
Assuming that you're using Windows:
Assign a drive letter for the External drive.

  • Right Click on My Computer
  • Scroll to Manage
  • Select Disk Management
  • Locate the External drive in the lower bottom Right corner, Right Click, Select Assign Drive Letter. Ok/Close

Open up My Computer, and you should see your External drive with your new drive letter assigned to it.

My maxtor ATA/133 hard disk is not working with my lapto, it has external usb power supply powered. and version maxtor 3.5 series, fireball 3


Try to open the external enclose and replace the hard drive, if that also does not work then open your start menu, right click on computer and click the "manage" button.
A management screen will appear and close to the bottom you will find disk management.
In disk management locate your hard drive in the list and right click on it and New Partition should appear (or enable) I cant remember it's been awhile since I've done it.
Enable it as a Master Boot Record (MBR) and use the entire volume. This hsould populate it in the list and give it a drive letter.
Also you can try plugging it into another computer, if it works with the otehr computer it could just be a drive letter issue in which you go into Disk Management, right click on the drive, click change drive letter and select a new, unused letter.

Does windows creates a drive letter for it?!
in "my computer" click "Manage"
and then "Manage disks"
does it shows up?!
If so, right click and assign a drive letter, try it now.
Sometimes, if you're using network drive letter assignments, windows messes up with upcoming pen drives or usb disks.

Western Digital External HDD not appearing in My Computer


It could be that the OS is not assigning a drive letter to your removable drive. To do this, go to disk management and assign one.

Assuming OS is Win 2000/XP/Vista

Right-click My Computer then Manage
Click on Disk Management
Right-click the removable drive and click on Change Drive Letter
Assign a drive letter and click OK
Your drive should now show up on My Computer

Hope this helps.

Windows likes to play with drive letter assignments, especially when you remove a device without using the "safely remove hardware" icon. When you plug it back in, Windows may think that you've plugged in a new one and assign it a new drive letter. Try this:

Your computer can use up to 26 drive letters, from A through Z. Use drive letters C through Z for hard disk drives. Drive letters A and B are reserved for floppy disk drives. However, if your computer does not have a floppy disk drive, you can assign these letters to removable drives.

Before you modify drive-letter assignments, note the following items:
  • Changing the drive letter of the system volume or the boot volume is not a built-in feature of the Disk Management snap-in.
  • Many MS-DOS-based and Microsoft Windows-based programs refer to specific drive letters for environmental or other variables. If you modify the drive letter, these programs may not function correctly.
uparrow.gifBack to the top How to assign a drive letter loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); To assign a drive letter to a drive, a partition, or a volume, follow these steps:
  1. Log on as Administrator or as a member of the Administrators group.
  2. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Performance and Maintenance.

    Note If you do not see Performance and Maintenance, go to step 3. Performance and Maintenance appears in Control Panel only if you use Category view. If you use Classic view, Performance and Maintenance does not appear.
  3. Click Administrative Tools, double-click Computer Management, and then click Disk Management in the left pane.
  4. Right-click the drive, the partition, the logical drive, or the volume that you want to assign a drive letter to, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths.
  5. Click Add.
  6. Click Assign the following drive letter if it is not already selected, and then either accept the default drive letter or click the drive letter that you want to use.
  7. Click OK.
The drive letter is assigned to the drive, to the partition, or to the volume that you specified, and then that drive letter appears in the appropriate drive, partition, or volume in the Disk Management tool.

I hope this does it for you. Thanks for using Fixya!

External hard disk problem


control panel, computer management, storage section, disk management. you may have to download the administrative tools for windows xp/2000/vista to find this. if you have multiple memory card readers, the drive letter assignments to these drives are conflicting with the drive letter that is being assigned to your external hard drive. assign the partition of your hard drive a letter not used down in the alphabet (such as x:) for e*X*ternal.

This is probably a bad sector on your hard disk. Connect it up and try this:
1. Start > Run > type in cmd then click OK to get a command prompt.
2. Type in chkdsk e: /r (replace e: with the drive letter of your external hard drive).
