My wd p/n wd8200me hard disk is recognized by me computer as USB mass storage device. But i wont show up in my computer. how can i make it work again?


Try this hard drive on another computer to see if you can back up your data.
Then format this hard drive using your computer. When you format the hard drive your data will be lost.

Sony Micro Drive USD5G not recognized. I plug it in and computer does not see it. Same effect on all computers tried on. Any suggestions?


You should connect the sony micro device to your computer once its connected to the usb lead it should automatically in windows 7 or you might have to open it open up manually it might be listed as a mass storage device click start right click on my computer you should see your mass storage device if you dont see it
click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll through all of the devices if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark or a red x you will need to update the driver right click on the device to update driver
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver :hope this helps:

My computor doesnt recognize the hard drive when plugged in


I assume the computer recognizes a mass storage device on USB is plugged in and appropriate drivers are loaded. Try on a different computer with appropriate drivers, restart existing computer and plug it in after computer starts. If still fails dismantle device and remove hard disk and try directly in another enclosure. Cannot provide further info without more information.

I am trying to trasfer a large amount of files from my macbook to a dell laptop. The mac will recognize the drive and i am able to backup and save files onto it, however when i plug the drive into the...


The problem most likely is the Dell does not recognize the MAC file format (HPFS), but the MAC will recognize the PC's FAT 32 file system.
First format the USB mass storage device using the Dell, format this device in FAT 32 not in NTFS because the MAC can read and write/copy PC format files but the Dell/PC cannot read MAC format files.
Then Safely remove this device, connect it to the MAC and copy the files onto this drive. When you connect this device to the Dell, you will be able to see the files.
Have fun.

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.

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?

Sandisk cruzer thumb drive


This just means it is trying to recognize the device. All you need to do is allow it to recogniz the device and find the proper drivers. You can put files in here by going into my computer and double clicking the mass storage device. Files can be draged or copied in here, then taken anywhere you need to go.
