Question about LaCie (300740) 160 GB Hard Drive
Recently my lacie external 160 gb hard drive was plugged up by usb 2.0 to a friends cpu. i hit the eject button but it said it was busy and i pulled out the usb not thinking. Now when I plug up my external hard drive on my computer or my laptop it doesnt show up. I started playing around with my device drivers on my cpu and it popped up but then failed to load. is there a way to solve this problem. can i download software?
Tips for a great answer:
click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X
you will need to update/reinstall drivers
right click to reinstall drivers
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
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,
if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports (com&lpt) right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem
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 to a computer and its parts
