External USB Harddisk

By Abhay
Jun 10, 2009
  1. Hi,
    I have this external USB hard disk which I am using for over 2 years now. It was working fine and kept properly. Now when I plug-in the hard disk (thrg USB cable) the green light on hard disk appears but my laptop is not recognizing the disk at all. I tried all standard ways and also went thrgs some other posts but nothing helps. Also, I dont see any entry in removable storage under computer management and neither I see any entry in safe removal option for USB.

    How do I get my drive back? I am using win xp home and professional (on two different laptops)

    They don't last as long as internal drives... It may just be bad. Have you tried formatting it?
