Asus laptop with Win7 64 bit asks to format WD external drive while other laptops have no issue running it - how come?


you are not swapping from mAC to PC and back , right?
try other USB ports.
many external drives do not run with out an external power pack.
elements, use 4 diffr. 18watt power packs, Are you using the right one?

so plug that in ,first. then plug in USB , w7 must go Ding dong
or the USB is DEAD. (use this as #1 fact to follow)
then put ear to the case of drive, hear it spin?
if not ,there is no power, for SURE.
solve that first.
ok, it spins. (soft whirl\'g sound, do this when new to memorize how GOOD sounds)
for a tests, leave the USB cable , not connected.
let w7 boot to the desktop.
now plug in the USB HDD, cable.
W7 goes, Ding dong.
then see the USB icon in the tray, does it see the drive>?
Y/n?
click on that tray icon, i see USB to ATPI bridge then...
My externals (have many) shows as Z:/external below , bridge....
if not , USB is failing.
yes, ding dong, yes Icon, yes see drive above.!

then go to disk manager, type those 2 words in the run box.
start +run " disk manager"
CP(controlpanel)+computer management +disk management.
does disk manager see this spinning drive.
mine shows,. DISK 2 and is letter coded Z:
if not , the USB port is not working. or the drive is not with power.
if disk manager shows the drive, the assign a letter to said drive
now program manager can see the drive, with this letter Z.
it dont need to be Z , per ce\' but that letter is a nice flag.
step by step.

oops it has green tech, that means it goes to sleep.
make sure you turn that off first. or it may not show up at all.
it\'s so green its , invisible?

wd on their DL page has a spin down utility, use that.

External hard drive won't show up on my computer


Enable Drive Letter View b> Click the "Start" button and choose "Control Panel" from the start menu. Click "Folder Options" and navigate to the "View" tab. Scroll down and place a mark next to "Show drive letters," then click "OK." b> Configuring Drive Manager b> Click the "Start" button to launch the start menu. Right-click "Computer" and choose "Manage" from the menu. Click "Storage" in the menu on the right side to extend the section. Click "Disk Management" under the "Storage" header. This will show you a list of drives and removable storage on your computer. It will also report the status of the drives, such as "Healthy." If the removable storage does not have a drive letter or has a drive letter in conflict with another drive, you can assign it a new letter. Right-click the icon of your removable storage drive and click "Change Drive Letter and Paths." Click the "Change" button, then choose a drive letter from the drop-down menu. Select a letter that is near to the end of the alphabet to prevent drive overlap issues. Click "OK" to allow the changes to take place. You should now see the removable storage listed with your other drives on the "My Computer" screen.

How can i get my Nikon Coolpix L14 to show up as a drive letter?


The camera is not a full card reader. You can use it to copy pictures, but it won't let you recover files. You need to use a separate card reader, either built-in to your computer or attached to a USB port.

PC cannot detect my Kingston Data traveler and it shows that there is No Driver Installed upon checking it's Properties. I cannot access any of the files saved on it


Go to Control Panel. Open Administrative Tools. Open Computer Management. Click on Disk Management. If you see it listed there, right click on the drive and change the drive letter to something not in use on the computer. B is usually safe.

If that's not it, the drive has probably failed. They have limited usage, and when they're dead, they're dead.

The drive is detected normally by the driver, no problem with the driver,the green light comes on, by touching it feels running normal, but does not show recorded data, nither makes icon in my computer...


Right click on my computer and select manage, in the box which appears select disk management, in the next box that appears, look in the bottom right hand panel, you drive should be lised there if it is picked up by the pc, you may need to initialise the drive (the option may appear automatically) or you may just need to give the drive a letter, right click the drive in question and select change drive letter or path, in the next box click change then use the drop down to select a letter. Only available letters will show, make sure you dont select and change the drive letter for your boot drive though, because you will completely mess up your computer.
