One of the most common errors in Windows is the USB Device NotRecognized malfunction. Thankfully, this is not in any way poses athreat to the security of your system though sometimes it may causeyour system to "hang" or experience delays. The USB Device NotRecognized error simply means that your computer cannot distinguish theUSB device that is inserted in one of the USB slots of the computer. There are different reasons why one's system gets this error. Asidefrom the attached devices at the USB slots, it is also possible thatthere is a malfunction in the host controller hardware. Moreover, thecomputer may not support the USB 2.0 that's why this error pops up atthe screen. There are also some system configurations or hardware thatare experiencing glitches as well. But you can try different ways to resolve this error so that youwould not have to deal with the pop up message "USB Device NotRecognized". If there is any connected USB device, gently unplug it from theslot. It might be loose that's why the error appeared. Wait for acouple of seconds before you plug the device again. Make sure that itis secured at the port. You can also use the Device Manager so your system can scan and lookfor the new hardware. Open the Start menu then choose Run. Typedevmgmt.msc at the box then clicks Enter. Once the Action menuappeared, choose Scan for Hardware Changes. It will allow your systemto look for newly installed devices. But if these techniques didn't resolve the error, you can tryunplugging the USB device from the port before shutting down thecomputer. Don't open it again immediately and wait for at least twentyminutes or so. However, if you still can't seem to fix the USB DeviceNot Recognized malfunction you may need to update your driver instead.You should know the website of the manufacturer so you will check outthe latest about the driver information. It would just take a couple ofminutes before you can get the updated driver information so you canstop the error from appearing from time to time.
This sounds like your USB bus does not have enough power available to run all devices that are connected to it.
If you are using a USB HUB, this is not unusual.
Try disconnecting other USB devices to see whether that allows the external drive to function properly. If it does, then I suggest that you get a "powered" USB hub to use to connect all of your devices.

To connect the keyboard or mouse to the computer, you must connect the wireless device through the USB port and get it to hold a good connection. You do not have to install any devices to use these products, they automatically work when you plug them in. When it says that the device is recognized, you are ready to use it! If you have a desktop, you can also plug the wireless device to the mouse port. The keyboard and mouse work properly up to 5' away from the connected wireless device. If you can get the wireless device to work properly, you should have no troubles with the product.
