My Computer doesn't recognize Ion 320 GB Harddrive w/Tri select

When I turn it on it showed 3 blue lights.  My computer doesn't recognize my Ion hardrive.  The model # of the harddrive is GHD335C320.  I found out that my black AC Adapter silver wire is messed up.  I just need to know what kind of AC Adapter can I buy.

    yeah... I wish they publish that somewhere. I keep all my AC adapters that I am not using in one place and when I need to use a device I like to know which adapter to use.

This isn't a solution but might help...

I have the same drive... with mine it recognizes sometimes but usually freezes my computer when I try to write to the drive. I thought it was the actual hard drive, but that works fine when installed in my tower... I now notice that one of the small components, component L14, is actullay missing a corner!!!! Like it chipped off! I'm blaming that. It seems to be part of the usb/firewire section of the mainboard. I'd like to replace it... does anyone know what that component is?

here are some photos:

Please try to change the view type of the Folders.

1. Click on view on the standard tool bar, select different views like, tiles, list, thumbanils etc.
2. open the harddrive, select search and search for all files and folders.
3. Connect same harddrive in other computer and check whether it detects all other folders.
If yes,
restart the computer and connect the hard drive again.

I have ROCO 320 GB extranal hard disk which is not recognized in my laptop windows 2007. I had stored so many data from my desk top computer. Any solution please.


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.
then check.
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}
And remove upper filter and lower filter.Then restart computer then check.
Try your harddrive in different computer if it is not recognized on another computer too then your harddrive has internal issue.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

I've plugged a portable harddrive in and it's not being recognized. It's a Verbatim USB 320. I am on a Toshiba with Windows 7


The USB memory key want to use a drive letter already in use. To fix it ,click on start,right click on My Computer then click on Manage. You may need to enter your password or click on Continue in the User Account window. Click on Disk Management and look for an entry that does not have a drive letter. Right click on the drive and then click on Change Drive Letter and Paths. Click on the Change button and select a new drive letter from the dropdown menu.Click OK in both windows to save.

Maxtor Basics 320 GB external harddrive cant be recognized


There's a good chance the shop you bought the drive from didn't have SP3 installed. For some reason, SP3 has an issue with USB peripheral devices. Windows has created a patch to rectify the problem. Click on the link below and install the "Fixit" patch to enable your PC to recognize your HD. Best of luck.

My Computer doesn't recognize Ion 320 GB Harddrive


Well if its lighting up, then the drive is receiving power, or the enclosure atleast. Forget that case, extract the drive, and seek out something more reliable and more solid. Preferably an aluminum enclosure with no fan.

seek out Weibetech.
