Have you removed it at anytime before, if so better putting back into same usb port, or firewire or try using another one. Assuming all drivers have been loaded for the HDD. See if the drive is recognised, go to My Computer, right click then manage, then look at disk management and see if it's there. If not there and you know your ports are ok, then there is a hardware fault.

I can't see my files and folders

You might try the drive on another computer to see what result you get. If the same, I would try a repair operation on the HD to see if that helps the situation. Right-click the drive, click Properties, Tools, and run a repair. I don't know if you'll get that menu option.If not, I would next try Explore, This PC, Computer (at the top of the window), Manage, Disk Management and see if the drive is seen there, and whether you're offered a repair option.

I have a pininfarina simpletech 500GB usb external harddrive that does not show up in the My Computer folder of Windows Explorer. Tried hooking it up to a different computer with the same results; no...

If it is a new hard drive then it needs to be formatted. You can do this by going into your start menu - control panel - administrative tools - computer management - disc manager. I could be a little off on the wording as I don't have my computer handy, but in the disc management you should be able to right click on the drive in here and choose format. This will format the drive to be used. I hope this helps.

when you connect it to the computer, go to "my computer" and look for it as a 'device' like the harddrive on your computer would appear (Local Disc (C:) ) and open it like a regular folder - you may have to right click and select "explore" - this should show you the available files on the device and allow you to select the option of putting your music in the music folder itself.

The icon for my lacie exyernal hard does not show

Here's two suggestions. (If your using Mac OS X 10.x)
Make sure external hard drives are to be shown by clicking "Finder" in the menu bar then "Preferences" and under the "Sidebar" section selecting "External Disks".
Also check that the hard drive is mounting by opening "Disk Utility" by first opening the "Applications" folder then the "Utilities" folder and double clicking "Disk Utility" and in the left sidebar checking to see if your external hard drive is listed as one of the mounted drives. Hope this helps, don't forget to comment/vote if this helped. Thank you.

Usb external harddrive

you have to right click on "my computer", select "manager".. there you can find and select "disk management"
in disk management you can find every drive connected to your pc.

there you will also see your external drive, and you can start to identify the problem (maybe problem with drive letter allocation, filesystem type..). start by rightclicking in the row of your disk to use the contextual menu.
i know it's just a starting point.. but you definitely a need little more troubleshooting.
