If the size of the drive your tring to transfer to is small then the amount of transfer it will cause that issue, or 1 or more of the files has a virus that causes the system to crash.

How can i open the body of my Acer External Hard drives 2.5 AH022S. because i can't open it on any of computer right now.

older post but not too old
NO PC stated at all, nor what OS you run, windows, android, what?

is this a new HDD ext
or from other PC with data from it.
or from this unstated PC that used to work but now now?
zero key fact stated, so no anwers possible
try all USB ports yet?>
go to (windoz) deskmanager is it seen there,
go to device manager, it must be seen there 1st ,then above.

did you drop it, if yes, boom heads crash.
the rule on all external (500GB or 1TB ?) drives
with no external Power pack on it.
is that many laptops and weak notebooks
do not have 500mA power on there USB ports
so the motor is born dead.
so plug it in, with your ear to the casing of hdd.
hear it , dead.silent.
hear it spin up (here)
hear it click madly, bad.

the MP3 is jet engine spooling but a hDD sounds the same.
just very tiny sound .
if the disk does not spin up, that means HDD is dead
or power to it is weak.

laptops with 100mA (power) USB ports are USELESS for any external hdd made. (lacking its own power pack)
what I do is buy or make my own HDD drive,
with power pack , then and ONLY then will it work on ANY PC.

My computer don't see mt toshiba 500 GB external disk. I had Win XP with SP3 and my external disk is connected to a USB hub with 8 ports. I had a pen connected to that hub and the computer see it. But...

Your USB hub cannot provide enough power for your external hdd, you can try to plug it in directly to any free USB port for the mean time to check if its detected or not, if it has a power button ( which is not normal for regular USB powered EXT HDD) make sure that it is on, if its still not working try to use a different cable, a known good cable or plug it in to a different computer to check if its your USB port, or the usb cable or the ext hdd that is causing the issue

Hope this help.

* Paste on USB-stick or External HDD

I've this didnt work, you need the cd's.

Hi. My computer says I ejected my WD My Passport external drive but it was not properly ejected. How can I fix this. I need all my thesis files but computer can read the external drive! Help please!

Try to test your WD Ext HDD to a different computer and check if you will get the same problem.

If the same problem persist try to use a different cable for your WD Ext HDD.

If still fails kindly ask the store where you bought the WD Ext HDD on how to retrieve your files and have WD EXT HDD replaced?

If your WD Ext HDD works to a different computer then update the BIOS and Chipset of the computer where your WD Ext HDD connected previously.

Hope this helps.

HDD upgrade to extensa 6601 Wlmi.

The BIOS determine the maximum size hard drive that can be installed in the laptop. Put a smaller hard drive in the laptop say 120Gb hard drive, you will lose approx 10% in the formatting process.
Use the 180GB in another laptop or put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as a portable external hard drive.
