My computer has stopped recognising the driver for a 500gb Lacie Premier Multimedia Hard disk. It appears as 'Unknown device". how do i locate and replace the driver.

Most USB accessories do not get recognized well when plugged in before startin the computer. The exception seems to be mice. USB hadr drives and flash drives specially seem to have this problem. I always use the disconnect icon in the system tray to disconnect before shutdown and plug them in after windows has stabilized. I even gets worse if you use a USB hub. Some devices will not be recognized when attached to a hub.

Hitachi Desktop "Flora 370W" with Windows XP (8 months old) - LOST the Hitachi CD with hardware drivers & Windows XP doesn't recognize devices (i.e., Ethernet card). Thanks, P. Towle

Youll need a friends computer with internet access and a flash drive for this mission. Head to hitachi's website and look up the model of your machine. Download to the flash drive at least the ethernet and/or modem driver to your machine. You can either use these two drivers to get your machine online or you can download all of your drivers. If your model has multiple device drivers for each category, youll need a program called Everest. It will identify all of your hardware in your machine. Get the 30 day trial version from

Dell 2400 wont recognize harddrive

I don't know how old the Dell is but I have not seen a BIOS setup routine that did not automatically find and recognize a new hard drive for many years. Perhaps the BIOS is the source of the problem.  Did you try the removed drive in another system? Did you check the CMOS backup battery? If this needs to be replaced, it may not recognize much of anything.

Laptop does not recognize the flash-drive after it's pluged in.

there are some reasons why it does not work.
1- You do not have correct drivers for the flash drive, and the computer will not recognize the product. simply update the driver for the flash drive and it will work. To do this go to the flash drive companies site and search for product driver updates
2- You have damaged your flash drive to the point where windows will not even recognize it. To prove this, plug multiple usb devices into the port and test if they work, and test the flash drive in different ports in your laptop and other PCs. If it is still not working, then it is faulty and will not work. Purchase a new one if this is the case

Hard drive not recognized


Hopefully your like me and have the "My computer" icon on your desktop. as this is the easiest way to access the Disk management utility.

1.) Right click "My Computer" and select "Manage" from the drop down list
2.) Below "System Tools" is a category titled "Storage" there is a sub category to this title "Disk Management" single click on this. That will bring up the disk management utility
3.) it may take a moment for the disk manager to load but once it does it will show ALL the disks currently attached to your PC including Hard drive, CD/DVD's, thumbdrives etc..... The one you want will likely be "Disk 1" be listed with the part number for your new drive WD ***** for Western Digital ST ***** for Seagate HT ***** for Hitachi etc...... and be "Unformated"
4.) right click on the NEW drive (Be SURE it is the new drive and labeled "UNFORMATTED" because if you do this on your Operating systems drive you WILL loose all information on that drive and have to reinstall windows) and select "Format" from the drop down list. This will pop up a dialog box asking for information on HOW to format your drive. If you want to give the drive a name put that in you :"Label" box there might be an option for "Quick" or "Full" format since this is the first time the disk is getting formatted do the FULL
5.) hit the format button and it will give you a warning that all data will be erased from the disk and ask you to confirm that this is what you want. Click "Accept" and you will be on your way. depending on the size of the drive this could take anywhere from 10 minutes to several hours be patient and don't interrupt it.
6.) Once the format is complete Windows will request to reboot the PC (It needs to do this because Hard drives get priority in drive lettering and will reboot so this new HD gets the next letter after your primary) Example: Before your HD1 is C:\ and your optical was D:\ After HD1 is C:\ HD2 is D:\ and Optical becomes E:\

After the reboot check in My computer for the NEW drive. It should be there and ready for you to use.
If not please post back here what your results are and I will do my best to find you a solution.
