Check if the usb cable is properly plug. Try to connect it to other computer and check if it will detect your HDD. If not, maybe the usb cable of your HDD is defective.

My phonex core utility doesn't know my HDD plz help


FOUR bad Sectors? The harddrive is toast.

2) http://computer.howstuffworks.com/hard-disk.htm

If there is any data on the harddrive you wish to save, stop fooling with it, and take it to a professional data recovery service. The more you mess with it, the harder, and less, data that can be recovered.

My usb ports on my laptop only recognizes my phone and mp3 player and not my external hdd, it tells me to format the plug and play external hdd. It does not do this in all my usb ports though


Maybe the external hard drive is to large to be recognized by your computer. Some computers won't recognize real large external drives.

Another problem could be that your external hard drive does not support Windows 7.

Every time i plug my WD HDD my pc does not recognized.


Try connecting the WD HDD to a different computer.
If it is not recognized, then you have a "dead" HDD.
If it still has a valid warranty, exercise the warranty to get it replaced.

Computer doesn't recognize hard drive


If your hard drive is not recognize by your computer try to enter cmos set-up and see if your HDD is detected and if it is detected by your pc then you probably have error in your MBR, try to format your hdd using fdisk. If this doesn't work you maybe have a faulty HDD, try to replace with a new one to try if your HDD is really the problem, also replace your data cable (IDE/SATA) maybe that the problem. good luck with this.
