External HDD Keeps Disconnecting Itself

Q: External HDD Keeps Disconnecting Itself

Anyone know why my external HDD keeps disconnecting itself?

It used to do it with my old PC, and I thought it was due to the slow processor, but the new one should be fast enough. Also, my other 120gb external HDD used to do it too, so I always thought it was my old PC's fault. But now that my new PC is doing it, I'm stumped.

When I first connected it to the new PC to upload the old PC's files (using SynbackSE), it stayed connected the whole time (several hours).

And I was never asked to format it.

Now it disconnects every few minutes, then when it reconnects, the usual popups appear and a request to format the disk.

Does anyone know how to solve this please?

thanks

go into power options in the control panel.
change plan settings
then click change advanced
expand usb and check that Usb selective suspend is disabled.

This will at least cover it from the windows side of things.

Hi,

I have a Seagate FreeAgent Desktop External HDD and I have had it for over a year now. It was working fine until yesterday when it started disconnecting and reconnecting whenever I moved the laptop. I figured that there must be something wrong with the USB port on my laptop or with the cable.
I tried the HDD in my other laptop which is running XP (not vista like the first one) and instead of just disconnecting it reported a "power surge on hub port". I assume that this rules out the USB ports on the laptops as the problem. However, most of what I've read on power surge issues points to the actual HDD unit itself.
Is it possible that it is just the cable that is causing all the problems or should I try to recover my information from the HDD and get a new one?

Thanks,
MrsB

Hello,

I bought new external USB 3 harddisk (Verbatim External Hard Drive 2TB USB 3.0) this christmas and I've got a little problem. Sometimes disk just disconnect from computer. When I turn on computer everything is ok but sometimes after hours it just disconnect. I tried to change USB slot but it's still same. I was thinking about their "sleep" mode but it can't be possible because I'm still using it - I've got music there.

I have got the latest USB 3 drivers from Asus website.

Every time I connect my external usb hdd to backup something,when I try to eject the drive(safely remove hardware),windows always says that the drive is used by something and will not allow me to safely disconnect the hdd.

If I just connect the drive and then disconnect it with "safely remove hardware",then it's fine but if I do some copy=>pasting,I have to set the drive to offline from device manager to be able to use "safely remove hardware"

It's 2TB "TOSHIBA External USB 3.0 USB Device" and when I check with Process Hacker,nothing is using the hdd.

In W10.1607 x86 when I eject a External USB HDD, it does not Power Down, I mean the Eject Procedure is not being totally finished. The Safe to Eject message appears but the light on HDD stays on and if I pull it out I can listen the Motor spinning down.
That is it not good, that will damage in short time the HDD.
The same HDD in a w10 x64 is working correctly.

A:Buffalo External USB 2.x HDD keep disconnecting

It wouldn't hurt to pick up and install a new battery.

You should also take a look and try to find the USB drivers for your motherboard (or just the motherboard drivers), as it sounds like it isn't recognizing it properly. Also make sure that Legacy USB support is enabled in BIOS.

I have a ThinkPad Workstation Dock (230W) that has two external monitors attached at work. When I leave work and disconnect my P50 from the dock, I close the lid and it goes to sleep. When I go to use the laptop again (without external monitors connected), the laptop thinks it is still attached to the external montors and the login screen does not show on my laptop. I then cannot get into my laptop without shutting down or restarting. I would like to be able to make this work without having to do a restart or shut down when I leave work. I have already tried adjusting the "boot time extension" in bios and this did not resolve the issue. Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

Like the title states: my external dvd drive keeps disconnecting and reconnecting from both the front and rear USB ports of my PC. It appears in Device Manager for a second and then disappears. The drive is connected via a SATA/USB converter and plugged directly into an electrical socket.

It also makes loading and ejecting sounds.

This is really frustrating at this point...

Thanks for your input!

A:External DVD Drive keeps disconnecting/reconnecting

Is this a laptop?

How often does it connect/disconnect?

Does it do it while in use or after being left alone?

Is your computer putting it to sleep?

Change your power plan to max performance and see if the problem goes away.

If it does we can tweak the settings and go bacvk to your normal power plan

Sounds like you could have a bad cable?? USB 3.0 requires perfect cables I've had several new ones that were bad! It also sounds like that hard drive is crashing!! Could be either or both. Good luck I hope you get your data off of it. Again Back up back up

Hey,

Windows 7 x86

I've got an USB External Hard Disk Drive (Samsung S2 Portable 500 Gb). In the last 3-4 days it keeps randomly disconnecting when in use... So, Windows starts, it runs fine for an hour or so (in use), then the magic sound strikes. After a couple of seconds it's detected again, and the whole show starts again. Sometimes it reconnects for 3-4 times in a minute. It's driving me crazy!

My USB drivers are up to date, I've unchecked all those Power Management things, I've installed the KB976972 update (tho I'm not quite sure I was suited for it ). I thought it was the cable's fault, so I left it on my brother's Vista PC for about 5 hours playing movies, and it worked...
LE: Now I'm thinking it could be one of the updates 7 made on the 10th of this month...

LE2: It was working fine since Christmas.

Hello kieron22!
I'm sorry for your problem with a WD external!
Which model is it, a My Passport (which one?), a My Book?
You could try using a different USB cable, a new one, then on every port ? USB 3.0 and 2.0, then on another system. Does the same issue occur everywhere? Doyou hear clicking from the drive or any other unusual sounds? Any error messages? How is the drive's performance? Please use the WD Data Lifeguard software (Support Answers) and check the drive's SMART values, post the results here. Please, be careful not to post the drive's serial number, too!

Having solved a number of issues with Windows I almost have it as it should have been from day I still have one annoying little issue You know that little sound the computer makes when you connect something to the USB port such as an external hard drive well mine does it disconnecting 10 hardware external sound Windows of connecting and - every Windows 10 - sound of external hardware connecting and disconnecting - minutes The sound is as if it is connecting something and then minutes later disconnecting I have external drives connected but done of them are the culprits as they show being connected all the time The computer wakens on its own from sleep mode from time to time too so Windows 10 - sound of external hardware connecting and disconnecting something is whirring away I have a wireless printer attached and wondered if it could be the problem but when I need to use it I have no issues Everything seems to be working except for the connect disconnect sound constantly playing in the background Any suggestions I have a laptop still to update to Windows but I have no intention until I nail these problems first Ian nbsp

A:Windows 10 - sound of external hardware connecting and disconnecting

Well it is not the wireless printer, that sound comes on when a physical connection is made. Change your power settings to high performance so the machine does not go to sleep and evaluate; if that does not help, then disconnect the drives, one at the time for an hour each and evaluate further.

I have a 1TB external storage drive that uses its own power supply and connects to my laptop via USB 2.0 cable. For months I've had absolutely no problem out of the device, until the computer randomly decided to forget the device was plugged in. Now I'm lucky to get the device to be recognized by the computer at all, and when it is recognized, if I try to move anything to/from the device, the connection is immediately severed from the computer.

I use this device for my backup as well as holding on to things I would rather not get rid of. All my drivers are up to date, I've done all the Power Management checking and unchecking that I've read from other threads found via Google search, and still it won't work correctly for me. Any advice?

A:Self-Powered External Storage not recognized/randomly disconnecting

Providing you have done all the power options to attack the problem from the OS end of things, then you must consider that the drive itself is the problem. This seems likely since the drive has worked fine in the past.

The first suspect would be the USB cable, the connector on either end, or the port on either end.

The second suspect would be the hard drives power supply. These do go bad. If it is not supplying proper power then the drive will fail to be recognized correctly.

Try the drive on another computer. If it exhibits the same behavior there then you can narrow it down to one of the two issues above.

The DSL and internet green light would often blanked out anytime during the day. Almost every time when I wake up.
And when that does happen, I will have to keep unplugging/plugging back the modem and router power plug for the DSL and internet light to come back.

I'm using a DIR-615 and a Motorola modem.
The Motorola modem was provided by a DSL employee when he came to my house in order to fix the internet. My previous modem was malfunctioning.

I've updated my firmware, checked my filters, and cleaned the dust.
So what exactly is going on and is there a solution to this problem?

Thank you.

I would suggest moving this question to the Networking forum (just click on Report in the bottom right of your post and request to be moved).

There are lots of possible answers:
1. Do you have good signal strength from your wireless access point?
2. Is there a button on your laptop that is easily pushed/activated that connects & disconnects your wifi?

The guys in the Networking forum can probably provide many more possibilities to check out.

Ok, i tried setting the DNS server to 8.8.8.8/8.8.4.4 on the router. It couldn't connect to the internet at all when i did that. I reset it to Automatic and it worked. Then i suddenly lost internet connection but the router was covinced it was still connected. After a quick restart it worked again.
Right now all i've done is set my Ipv4 to that DNS server and disabled my Ipv6 because aparently that wasn't working properly.Click to expand...

I have the N 600 DBl; mine kept disconnecting for the longest time too. Maybe change the channel. I did that, and the DNS, and aloud it though my firewall and I haven't disconnected at all in two weeks.

One minute it will be working just fine, and then the next my button on my computer that flashes orange saying that the wi fi is connected will stop blinking and the internet connection with disconnect. I can re connect right after, and I've reset the internet many times and that doesnt seem to be the problem. Any suggestions or possible, a way to fix would be great.

A couple of weeks ago my internet connection began disconnecting and reconnecting several times a day. The disconnects seem to be more frequent when more bandwidth is being used. Every time it disconnects the DSL light on the modem blinks red momentarily, and soon returns to normal. I've tried two different modems and they both do the same thing. I have tried multiple cords with the modem. I contacted AT&T and they said they ran a line test and it looked normal. There are 4 computers sharing this connection and the router is a Linksys WRT54G. This pretty much ruins my online gaming experience and is just a pain when browsing.

Any ideas?

You might try updating the firmware on the Linksys WRT54G, or get another router like D-Link

Hi,
I'm working on a computer for someone. It runs ME and has a slow Celeron Processor, only 64 mb ram.
Anywho, I installed the drivers for my DSL so I could download and browse the web ect. It started out o.k. but then it disconnected. And it keeps doing it. Sometimes it even disables the internet connection on my modem.
Is this because 3megs is too much for it to handle? I don't get it. I've never had this happen.
I've checked in System and the USB ports all show a-ok.

Any ideas?

Thanks ahead of time.

I'm having problems with my AIM. It's fine, until I open a box to IM someone. It then freezes for a few seconds and shuts down. I have Windows Vista, so there have been a few issues associated with my computer lately, but this has just recently started.
 

A:AIM keeps disconnecting.

That doesn't sound like a connection problem since you are able to get online on AIM.
Had the same problem once...

The problem might be Mal-Ware on your system.
Try doing a scan on your system for Mal-Ware and Viruses.

Personally, I would recommend 'Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware'.
This program detects all Mal-Ware, Trojans, and even some Viruses.

Good Luck. Hope you get AIM working again.

I am using a desktop at work, and I use AOL IM to communicate with my co-workers that are in other buildings.

Unfortunately, AOL usually disconnects every 4 to 20 minutes, continually throughout the day.

I know that it is not my ethernet that is disconnecting, because when I check the status of my LAN connection, the duration will be however long my computer has been on.

I've also had some IT people use a sniffer to check on the actual LAN, but they found no problems.

I'm running Windows XP.

Thanks in advance!

A:AOL IM keeps disconnecting

Are you aware that aim comes bundled with uneeded/spyware applications?I reccomend using a program like TrillianIt connects to all chat servers including aim, yahoo, msn,icq,irc, and more. Just enter in your account username and password. Much better than aim, and not bundled with cheap software.Anyway, try reinstalling aim........

Hey,Since recently my MSN keeps disconnecting and reconnecting me. I don't experience this with any other application that requires a constant internet connection such as online games, or when I'm downloading files.I have ran several malware scans, renewed my host file, updated my ethernet controller drivers, restarted my router, forwarded the MSN ports on my router, and I am still getting nowhere with this. It is really frustrating, and I can sign in and maintain connection to web-based MSN services such as eBuddy, so I don't know what the problem is. Here is a Hijackthis Log:EDIT: Please be patient.

OS : W8.1
Product : HDD - Seagate, WD and others
Connection : USB

The recommended method to remove a USB-connected HDD is to "Eject" the drive via the USB Icon. When disconnecting certain USB HDD drives the message is displayed "The device is currently in use..... etc... etc.".

Even if the User is careful to shutdown all programs, including File Explorer, the message will still be displayed. If the User then checks process activity via Task Manager, no process activity is reported.

So the question is - What process is reporting that the USB HDD is still "in use" and therefore activating the message, when not even Task Manager shows any process activity...

I using DG31PR Motherboard Last few days my network automatically disconnecting 3 or 4 seconds after connected every one hour repeating what is the problem anybody pls help
 

A:Lan Disconnecting

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.


Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.


If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?


On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

Type the following commands on separate lines, following each one with the Enter key:

PING 206.190.60.37

PING yahoo.com

NBTSTAT -n

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

A:Disconnecting =/

I had the exact same problem and so I removed the router from the equation and connected directly using my modem. Try than and see if it works. You will need to run TP straight cable from the modem to the back of the computers RJ-45 Jack, and then you will need to power cycle the modem (Turning off for about thirty seconds and then turning back on). Try that and see if it helps. Are you using DSL or cable, and if you are using DSL, check the filters? One more question, when you are disconnected are you able to ping websites by their ip address and by their host names, if not I would point towards a DNS issue.

If I understand this correctly, you have a slipter coming out from the wall one to your dsl modem and the other to the direct tv box.You probably need to place a filter on that line some how or just install another wall jack just for the direct tv that way you can place a filter on it.

I was advised here to reset IE7. I did, and now I still get a disconnect, but I do not have to reboot. if I click on a short cut a second time it connects.

If I leave a tab open, it will not disconnect when I go from site to site without any problems.

Again, when I try to go from site to site, I have to go back and click on the desktop icon again, then it will reconnect.

Absolutlely a power problem. USB (5.0 volts) usually can only provide power to 3 or 4 devices add more and the voltage will drop when it does the devices stop working. the cure buy a "Powered" hub that has an AC adapter.

If the router is losing its connection with the modem look for a firmware upgrade and reset it to factory default settings and reconfigure.

If both computers are losing their connection to the router try the above and also look for wireless interference, especially from another wireless network or a 2.4 Ghz cordless phone.

How do you connect? Ethernet or wireless? If Ethernet, try another cable (they are cheap, and not very rugged). Try another port on your router, if you using a router.

In Device Manager > Network adaptors, right click on your adapter, select Properties > Power Management and untick in the top box. If that does not help, tick it back.

My computer is a brand new iBUYPOWER 963i,
8 gbs of DDR3 RAM
i5 2500k,
and I suppose the rest is not important to my problem.
The problem is I bought a Rosewill RNX-N180PCe card for it,
and I've been disconnecting like crazy, it's ridiculous, I will disconnect from the internet abour every 30 seconds, and, as you can imagine, its very annoying when gaming. Anyways, I recently moved the desktop to another to see if it would disconnect like this, but it does not. So that brings me down to two things:
1. The router.
2. The placement of the antennas/desktop.
It couldnt be out internet because we have great internet with high-speeds.
Our router is a Cisco WRT120N with firmware version 1.0.07
Any ideas, or am I just going to have to abandon this 800% machine and go back to my ****** laptop?

Randomly my LAN Port on my GA-EX58-UD3R will sometimes become disconected.
It's not my router or modem beacause when I want to fix the error I simply go to device manager and disable and then re-enable the Network Adaptor.

Thing's to note...

1. Ive tried the original driver and latest driver's with the same result
2. This seems to happing when my computer isent doing much. For instace I have never had the LAN go out on me while online gaming.
3. All the power save modes for LAN are off.

Hopefully the pictures below help....


If any one has any ideas what could be causing this it would be greatly appreciated...

I am using an Acer Aspire 5536, running windows 7 and my router is a Netgear RangeMax Wireless-N Router, model WNDR3300
Problem: Starting last weekend, all of a sudden my wireless internet seems to have become very unstable, every 5-10 minutes i will lose connection and have to wait a minute or two before it reconnects.

Obviously this can get very frustrating when im playing a game or just surfing the web, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

For somereason since I installed my Belkin Wireless G router my aim get disconnected every 5 to 10 minutes? even on the computer that is wired to it. the firmware is up to date and everything is there just something dumb I am missing? never had this problem since I hooked the comp up to a router =( help a newbie out lol
 

A:My aim keeps disconnecting?

Might seem completely irrevelant for me to ask this, but are you using Trillian? Both my work PC and one of my home PCs were having issues with AIM recently (yesterday at home and today at work) and I then upgraded to Trillian 3.1 (I had 3.0) and it installed updated stuff for AIM, now the problem is gone.
So if you did this recently, it may not be your router.

If you don't use trillian, then disregard what I just said.

I recently moved to Tabor City North Carolina, and when I had my Internet installed it was okay, but now the Internet gets disconnected, the whole router doesn't go off but just the WLAN, and Internet lights do. What can I do to stop this?
 

A:Internet keeps disconnecting

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Make and exact model and hardware version of any other network equipment, like a repeater, a booster, hi-gain antenna, etc.
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.


Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.


Have you tried to do a system restore to before the problem occurred?
If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
For wireless connection issues, have you removed all the stored wireless network profiles and then searched for the network?
For wireless laptops, have you made SURE the wireless switch is on?
For wired connection issues, have you booted in Safe Mode with Networking to see if that changes the symptoms?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?

On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

Type the following commands on separate lines, following each one with the Enter key:

PING 74.125.45.100

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.

My laptop will not stay connected to wifi for more than a few seconds before 'limited access' appears.
It connects and disconnects repetitively.
i have a 3mobile wireless dongle. Other laptops stay connected no problem and i am always beside the dongle with full coverage.
if i click the network icon several times on the bottom right it reconnects for a few seconds again,
I have discovered that if i run 'funkypool' in the background the connection generally stays, but not 100%, but 90% anyway.
this may possibly be because its java and always refreshing itself i think.
it doesn't matter whether or not im plugged in or using battery but i did change the controls for automatically putting the wireless to sleep mode so i doubt that unless ive done it wrong. my laptop is 5 months old. trouble shooting does not raise any issues. any help greatly appreciated, thanks

I HAVE

-reinstalled both aim 5.9 and 7.3 multiple times. Still disconnects.
-tried using pidgin and AIM at the same time. Pidgin will not disconnect, but AIM still does. However, AIM seems to disconnect a LOT LESS while running with pidgin(sometimes it goes a full 2 hours without DCing).
-googled solutions. have been unable to find a solution; most forums describe problems from vista and xp that were a couple years back.

i KNOW it is not my internet connection, wireless or ethernet cables fault. I have tested all 3 of those extensively while running aim on other computers that don't disconnect, and also surfing the web, downloading, streaming, and playing games while running aim in the background. all work seamlessly, but aim still disconnects.

PLEASE HELP. THIS IS DRIVING ME CRAZY.

and please don't suggest that I use third party clients. I will if I have to, but I have tried all of them and I hate them. I prefer to use AIM.



Check event viewer to see if the disconnects are logged

There are several ways to find what the problem is. The best is to go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search). Go to the windows log>application tab.

You want to look for critical errors (they have red in the left column ).

When you find them you want to look for critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.

When you find them please note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.

Let us know if you need help with any of this.

Can you try another USB keyboard to determine it is not at fault?

One cool thing to have in your toolbox is a copy of Tool/wiz TimeFreeze

It is free and is a good way to test things if you want to keep your system the same after the test. After install let is sit in the tray. When you need it, open the window from the Tray Icon and activate it. Install/Uninstall programs, drivers, whatever to see what happens. To undo all changes just reboot.

Well, I know this is probably going to be more of a router issue, but the Homegroup between my PCs keeps disconnecting. They will reconnect when i restart the router, but hours later (with not interruption, not even a restart of a computer) the homegroups will not see the other computers.

On a similar note, I have a Desktop and Laptop with 64-bit Windows 7 and one laptop with 32-bit, and the 64's can see each other but not the 32, it's all by itself. It SEES the homegroup itself, but can't see the computers... I think. I am pretty sure it accepted the password and everything (I can't remember, I tried this a while ago). So I just use the "network" listing to see that other laptop and send files to it.

The router I use is a "Belkin N Wireless Router", model F5D8233-4.

Okey, Hello guys, this seems decent forums to ask for help...

Im using portatable Modem Huawei something ( not important )
Stable 4g internet, fast and lovely.
My problem is that my internet connection just randomly disconnects for maybe a minute or 2 and reconnects, sometimes, but very rarely it doesnt disconnect but pops up this on network. Trouble shooting shows me that win cant connect to DNS server. It happens very often when im downloading/uploading torrents, lil less often when playing Games like League of Legends. THis can happen maybe twice a day, or even twice in 10minutes. Ive reinstalled windows, doesnt help, ive used 2 diferent modems, doesnt help, So i have no idea where to go on from here. Im certain it has trouble uploading data... I would really like to have help with this as on some other forums, nobody even tries to help. Ask me for more info or anything i can supply you with.

A:Internet Disconnecting

Open Device Manager, expand Network Adapters. Post a screen capture here.

Do the following twice. Once when all is working correctly. Capture data and save.
Do again when it's not working. Post both results in a reply here.

Open a Elevated Command Prompt:

Press WIN + X to open Start context menu.
Select Command Prompt (Admin)​.

Paste the following into the Command Prompt window, exactly as shown, including double quotes:

cmd /c "ipconfig /all > postme.txt & ping yahoo.com >> postme.txt & reg query "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" | find /i "proxy" >> postme.txt & notepad postme.txt & del postme.txt"

and press ENTER.

A file will open in Notepad. Please copy and paste the contents here. Close the Notepad window and the file will be deleted and the Command Prompt window will also close. Post results in a reply here.
