Files on a flash drive canbe corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly.
Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon andthen click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flashdrive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove.

As well as any other device, a memory card can suffer from various influences and so it may break down for a number of reasons. In this article, we'll consider possible causes of damage to memory cards and give a couple of hints at recovering their data.

When a Universal Serial Bus [USB] drive doesn't show up in your computer, it can be an urgent problem, especially when you need to access files or data stored on the drive.
It is not easy to troubleshoot this issue, compared to other computer problems, because there are a few probable causes for the problem.
On a positive note, USB problems generally require one simple step to resolve.Name Conflicts

This problem generally occurs on computers with an exceptional number of attached drives, whether they are networked, or hard-wired.
Computers with multi-format card readers can have this issue.
USB drives don't always find an available drive name that is compatible with their naming conventions.
For example, if the USB drive is named "G:," and your computer has a networked drive "G:," or additional hard or optical drives named "G:," your USB drive will not show up.
This problem can be resolved by remapping a drive to a different name; this can either be a temporary name change, or permanent.
One thing to keep in mind, is that drive remapping is not something that a computer novice should attempt.
Consult a technician for help with remapping/renaming a drive.

Software Conflicts
With newer computers, it is much more unlikely, but there could be a chance that your USB drivers are not installed.
Checking your USB drivers is a simple as right-clicking "My Computer," and selecting "Properties."
From the Properties menu, select the "Hardware" tab, and click the "Device Manager" button.
A list of your computer's hardware will open, and you will find "Universal Serial Bus" on the list. If you see a red "X" or yellow exclamation point, your drivers are not installed.

Drivers vary by computer; if you cannot find the driver disk that came with your computer, you will need to go to the website of your computer's manufacturer to locate and download the driver.
If you are not comfortable downloading and installing software, contact a computer technician.

Drive Malfunction USB drives are more durable than floppy disks and their predecessors, but they are not indestructible.
If your computer does not detect your drive and it has before, test the drive in other computers.
If the drive does not show up in several computers, there's a good chance that it has gone bad. Repeated rough handling of a USB drive can damage the memory chip on the drive.
Removing the drive without "stopping" it can corrupt the drive, as well.

USB Port Malfunction

Most USB drives have a small led that will light up when the drive is inserted into the USB port.
If the LED does not light, it could indicate a problem with the drive, but there could also be a problem with the computer's USB ports.
If the drive does not light up, and is not detected, plug it into another computer.
If the drive is detected by the other computer, there is a problem with the original computer's USB ports.

Follow the steps in the Software Problems section of this article to check if your USB drivers are installed. If they are, you may need to contact a technician to check your USB port connections.
The USB ports on the computer may have been connected when the computer was manufactured or recently serviced.
If you are not comfortable working on your computer, contact a technician.
Failure to take certain precautions could result in damage to your computer's motherboard.

Expert Insight

Whether your drive is new or you've had it for a while, do not be over-reliant on its durability. Keep at least one additional copy of your data in another location to avoid catastrophic data loss.
USB drives are not indestructible, and it is not always possible to recover data from them, even under favorable circumstances.

sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable


just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems

if this fails to fix the problem
type in run "regedit" then press ok then you can see registry editor then locate below key. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11 CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} And remove upper filter and lower filter.

Then restart computer then check.


Also locate the below key and make sure it's value is 3 not 4. HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\services\usbstor make sure start value is 3 not 4


if still no luck
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps

Did the hard drive come in the enclosure? (Is the hard drive supported by the extrenal enclosure) Does it work when plugged into another computer and have you tried using another cable?
Did it come in the enclosure? Try another cable
Did it work when plugged into another computer?
Yes - Windows Drivers
No - Try another enclosure or cable
Did it work with another cable?
Yes - Problem Solved
No - Try another enclosure with the new cable
try whichever of these and see if it helps. please respond here with what happens wether it works or not.
Another option by the way is to check what happens when you take the hard drive out of the enclosure and install it inside the computer as an internal Hard Drive. If that works then it isn't the hard drive atleast. I will away to see what happens.
