2 possibilities.
1. How is the drive powered? If you are relying the the USB tpo power it it its very likely the Laptom does not have the power to run it. So it will need an external pwer supply.
It could also need formatting to match your computer which is mostl like ly NTFS- but it should be formatted to 32bit to be universal.
To format Go the Contol Panel /Ad/min tools /Computer Management/Storage/Disk management - and see if thedrive is listed there.

My venus ds3 is not working on my new HP mini tower


What exactly is it not doing...is the machine not seeing the external drive, or is it recognized by not showing the data on the drive? What happens (or doesn't happen) when you connect it to the machine? What OS does the machine have installed? Have you tried the drive in another working machine since this occurred?

How do i get drivers for gemini usb 2.0 external case (sata) actually i have ultra book there is no dvd writer


You don't need drivers for an external usb case.
Your ultra book should recognize the dvd writer once it is installed in the case. It will assign a drive letter to it.

My external hard disc moder no : TS80GSJ25S shows there is no disc in your drive


If you have used this drive before then the drive is malfunctioning and my need to be formatted. If not, then the disk could need initializing and then formatting. You can check the status of the disk using the windows disk management utility. The directions to use this utility are shown below, If the disk does not appear in the manage disks section, check the connection to the computer, and try to power cycle the drive by unplugging it, waiting for about 20 seconds and then plugging it back in. This may renew the connection and restart the drive.

Disk management utility will help you see all the drives that are connected to your computer, including internal hard drives, CD or DVD Drives, and removable storage like USB sticks and external hard drives. Using this utility, you can check for attached drives that are not visible in windows when attached to your computer. You can also format drives, change drive letters, mark a partition as active and delete partitions. A word on caution about using the Disk Management Utility: This utility can cause destruction of data. If you are not sure of what you are looking at and uncomfortable with using this utility you should consult with an advanced user before making any changes to drives using this utility.


Right click on you "My Computer" Icon

A menu will open

Chose "Manage"

The Computer Management window will open


The Computer Management window is broken down into 3 sections. The first section on the left side of the window shows a menu. Disk Management is on the lower portion of the menu.

The right side is separated into two sections, top and bottom. The top portion shows a list of active drives on the computer. The lower portion shows all drives connected to the computer. CD or DVD drives that have not disk will not show as active drives on the top section, but can be seen in the lower section.

The lower section will show the drive description, drive size and drive condition (online or off line) in small box on the left side of that section. Disk drives will designate a "Drive" and a number. Drive 0 is usually your internal hard drive. Then it would list drive 1, drive 2, etc, depending on how many internal and external drive sources you have connected to your computer. Then it will list your CD drives and generally show their drive letter assignments. Next to the smaller section described above, is a larger section which shows the driver letter, size of the driver and condition (if working correctly will show "healthy")

This is the area you can right click and get a menu that will allow you to open, explore, mark the partition as active, change the driver letter, format the drive or delete a partition. (A note of caution here. Changing the driver letter on your main hard drive partition will cause windows to stop functioning. The main hard drive, or hard drive partition, is normally given the letter "C".) A hard drive may show two or more partitions with separate drive letters designated for each partition.

A drive this is having a problem may show that it needs to be formatted (status as Unformatted). This can be done from this window. An external drive, whether it is a hard drive or CD/DVD drive, can have the letter designator change done if you want to organize your external drives

Hi!
I think I would run the setup application and see if it helps. You're relying on the Windows drivers for the drive and who knows how well they work.

1. Turn the computer off completely.
2. Disconnect the USB drive and any other USB devices (for the time being).
3. Turn the computer back on, put the installation disk in and follow the instructions. Don't connect the USB drive until you are asked! Having it connected before asked may not allow the installation process to work as it should.
4. When everything is installed, hook your other USB devices back up and see what happens.

If this doesn't work, go to the Seagate site and try out their external HD troubleshooter.

Hope that helps! Remember to rate the solutions!

Won't function


Firstly it sounds as if the drivers aren't loading properly, right click on your drive (right click my computer> properties> hardware> device manager). Look for your external drive, rightclick and click update driver and force it to look in your cd for driver files. Secondly make sure you are connecting to a USB2 port, as it may not recognise the hardrive.
