The firm ware in the machine (depending how old it is)might not recognise that size drv or it needs formating,either way you can fix this with Disk Wizard.

Connect your harddrive to another computer like windows xp then if it is recognize then take data backup . If your harddrive is fine then follow below for laptop. First make sure usb cable connected to harddrive is working fine.
try it in different usb ports.
Press windows key +R key so you can see run then type in run "devmgmt.msc" then press ok so you can see device manager uninstall all usb drivers then it automatic install usb drivers.

Also you need to change registry for that 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}

Why can't I access anything that was copied onto my Toshiba 500G external harddrive. The computer doesn't recognize the program that made any of it, even though it's the same computer.

It is very possible the voltage on your computer's USB port is not handling the load. I would buy a "powered" USB 2.0 hub, plug it into your computer's usb port and plug the harddrive into the powered hub.

Driver problem

Hi Vicient,

I have the following questions to evaluate the problem.
1) What's the port your harddrive supported? Is it standart IDE cable or SATA.

I have a hardrive utility software that can detect and access any type of harddrive but you need install it at running windows.

Please email [email protected] and dont forget to used the subject "Driver Problem" if sound interesting for you.

Sincerely,

Philip
