External USB 2.0 HD not seen in device manager

Q: External USB 2.0 HD not seen in device manager

I have a WD external USB 2.0 HD. Yesterday, there was a message on screen asking to update driver or something. I ignored it. Now, the HD is gone. It is not under device manager/disk drives. Everything under universal serial bus controllers works properly.

I downloaded HDD Scan and ran it. It did not find the drive. What can I do now?

Preferred Solution: External USB 2.0 HD not seen in device manager

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:External drives show in Device Manager & Disk Manager but not Computer

Hi Dick1030,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Please do as follows:

1. It is unusual for the System Reserved Partition to have a drive letter. Please remove the drive letter.

2. Please remove (always Safely Remove) all the external drives including any card reader and do a drive cleanup as indicated here. It will clean your system of all non-present devices and you will be starting with a clean slate.(Incidentally this can resolve many drive letter assignment confusion of Windows OS, as you can see in the referenced thread.)

3. After you reboot on completion of the drive cleanup, plugin only your WD My Book and the Fantom drive. As you plug-in the driver for each device will be installed ab-initio. You can watch it.

4. Now take a screenshot of the Disk Management and post. While taking the screenshot, click on "Show/Hide Console Tree” and “Show/Hide Action Pane” buttons on the toolbar on top to hide those and also pull up the center partition line up as much as possible so that we get a clear and full view.

5. Also tell us whether you are sure that you had formatted the Fantom drive and it contains data and whether you want to recover the data..

(Your statements and the screenshots are so confusing - atleast to me - it is necessary that you do the above and restate the problem.)

Yesterday, I started a download and kept the pc on with my Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex External HDD 1TB plugged in. After I woke up I realized that there was a power cut and the computer went off unexpectadly (I had no UPS or any backup system).And, I found that my Ext HDD was not seen in my computer anymore (It was working perfectly until before I went to bed).
In device manager, under 'Disks' it shows 'GoFlex Hard Disk', but in BIOS or Disk Manager there is no sign of this HDD.

I really need the data in the HDD badly. Please help me recover it.
P.S. I read somewhere that keeping the HDD in freezer might help and give a little more time. Is that true? Worth the risk?

A:External HDD gets detected in Device Manager but not Disk Manager or seen in 'My Computer'

Power outage probably killed something in the enclosure or its PSU. The drive in the enclosure is probably fine. I would remove the drive from the enclosure and put it in a dock or install it in a desktop computer before considering freezing it. Freezing is usually reserved for click of death drives, and a last ditch effort.

I have an external 1TB HDD that I bought several months ago. Now, all of a sudden, my computer is no longer reading it as a drive. In device manager, it still reads it as a USB mass storage device, but it will not show up in "My Computer" or the command prompt under either Windows XP or Windows 7.

I tried running TestDisk, but my HDD in question does not appear on the menu.

Any thoughts? Or am I basically screwed?

Hello, all.

Very much out of the blue, my 160GB MyBook Essential Edition external hard drive from WD stopped showing up in My Computer. I tried it on my desktop and laptop, and I couldn't access the drive on either computer. I downloaded a diagnostic tool from WD's website, and the drive was found by the program and reported that the drive was working correctly. I later found the the Windows Device Manager also recognized the drive, and said that it was running with no problems. I'm afraid I may have deleted everything on the drive somehow, but I can't seem to find out if this is truly the case. I searched WD's site to find a download for drivers, installers, etc., but didn't find anything useful.

If anyone has any ideas about how I can regain access to my hard drive, I'd really appreciate it.

Ok; so I've done some digging into this and have tried practically everything. Under Device Management it's shown as Disk 3 "unknown/not initialized". Used to give option to Initialize disk and no longer does. Ran MiniTool Partition and it wasn't detected by the program. Drivers are up-to-date and device is "working properly" yet clearly there is an issue. I have almost 1TB of data on this drive, most of which is I do need so format/initialize isn't an option. I'm running into a wall now trying to think of things. Any help would be appreciated.

A:WD Passport External not seen by computer/detected by device manager

Hello pastmylife357. Welcome to the forum.

There could be an issue with the USB connection - connector. You could try gently jiggling it to see if you get a response, particularly the part of the case that fits onto the actual hard drive. Plus, try it in different USB ports.

I would try it on another PC, just to check to see if it is the drive or the PC that is the problem.

Let's start with that, see if it shakes anything loose.

I have a Western Digital 250 GB external HD that had been working perfectly until yesterday afternoon. It has been making this repetitive whirring noise *not the clicking noise of death* and it died before I had a chance to copy the data onto another external. When I plug in the USB it makes the connection noise, but autoplay does not come up and it does not show up in my computer anymore. I did look in device manager and disk management and it does show up but it had no drive letter and it says unreadable. (I've attached a screenshot of this)

Is there any way I can recover the data off of it? Should I just take it out of the enclosure and hook it up to a desktop pc?

A:External hard drive broken shows up in device manager but not My Computer

It sounds like the drive itself is dead rather than the enclosure. The repetitive 'whirring' noise likely is immediately following the click of death, just the click is pretty quiet on a lot of notebook drives. If yours is a full size (3.5") drive in that enclosure, then perhaps you are right and the click of death isn't occurring.

In either case, its not going to hurt to hook it up internally, because even if it doesn't work you aren't any worse off than you are now.

The hard drive is a Western Digital 320 GB that I've had plugged into this computer before (and worked). Then i got a virus and had to do a recovery of windows.

Ever since then I can't get windows to recognize/show it in my computer. I just "disabled" and "enabled" it in device manager to no effect. I have a C, D, and E drive which are: two partitions on the hard drive, and then the CD drive (respectively).

So i'm stuck, not sure where to proceed since it's obviously not the hard drive itself, I use it on my xbox all the time. What next?

Dell Vostro 1400, Core2Duo. Installed Windows 7 64 bit a year and a half ago. For those not familiar, the Vostro is not entirely compatible with 64 bit, so the drivers are a little hit and miss.

Computer runs slow sometimes, has since the install. I don't think I've ever seen the yellow triangles before, but I may have never looked at the device manager ... the computer is a secondary machine in the house.

My question is, do these indicate a performance problem or can I ignore them and assume the computer is working as best it can?

Hi everybody.

I just bought myself a Powercolor Radeon HD 4890 yesterday. After installing the card and the required drivers everything works like a charm. However, every time I start up my PC I get a message saying that a new device has been found on my system. On checking Device Manager I found an "Unknown device" entry under "Other devices".

I'm attaching a screenshot of Device Manager.

Are there any drivers I'm missing? It only happened after removing my old card (after uninstalling all its drivers) and installing the Radeon.

Any help is greatly appreciated.


A:Unknown Device In Device Manager After Installing Radeon HD 4890

I have a Powercolor Radeon HD 4890 (I also have a Gigabyte 4890 and XFX 4890 in two other PCs). I think you need to install the latest ATI Catalyst Suite. You may have installed the driver only package. Anyway, I think it has to do with the HDMI capabilities of the card. High def sound is built into the card (the HD part of the card name) and the HD sound driver is part of the Catalyst Suite. When you use an HDMI cable to an appropriate display, HD sound is also transmitted through the same cable from the Radeon graphics card.

Of course, be sure to install .NET Framework 2.0 as it is required before you can install the full Catalyst Suite. The HD sound driver won't install without it. At least I had trouble before I installed .NET 3.5. I went to Windows Update and installed .NET Framework 3.5. 2.0 is included in that update and 2.0 wasn't available separately.

hi i would like to know
i would like to enable or disable a device from device manager without opening device manger is there maybe a script or a shortcut

A:shortcut to enable or disable device in device manager

DevCon (Devcon.exe), the Device Console, is a command-line tool that displays detailed information about devices on computers running Windows. You can use DevCon to enable, disable, install, configure, and remove devices.
DevCon runs on Microsoft Windows 2000 and later versions of Windows.

I haven't tried it myself but with DevCon(Windows Device Console) you should be able to do that. You don't have to install the WDK as that page says. Here's a solution to extract only devcon.exe from the installer:
Where to find DevCon.exe - The Deployment Guys - Site Home - TechNet Blogs

And here's examples of how to use it: Device Console (DevCon.exe) Examples (Windows Drivers)

Let us know how it goes or if you need help.

What is happening: No new device shows in device manager underneath sound video and game controllers audio

Problem: not able to use headphones on my controller

How do i solve this problem? When I restart my computer or "scan for new hardware devices" nothing happens and i dont get a headset audio device showing up

And it also doesnt appear in volume control icon > right click > playback devices

I've just upgraded my 6 year old computer from Win XP to Win 7.

In Device Manager, there is an item with a yellow caution under Other Devices called "PCI Input Device". The Device Properties indicates Code 28. I searched both the Internet and the computer but couldn't find a driver.

I ran Belarc Advisor and didn't see any hardware errors.

There doesn't seem to be any more specific clues regarding the component causing this error and there also doesn't seem to be any hardware that isn't working. (at least not that I have found)

Can anyone point me in the right direction to fix this problem?

Alright, so here's the scoop. I recently formatted my computer into xp and updated it to sp3, but in the programs (aida64 among them) I was using to search for drivers it said that my sound device was outdated (Soundmax High Definition audio integrated device I think) and so I installed Soundmax's latest driver/ program. Yet that made the sound scratchy or added a fuzz to the sound that wasn't there before. I tried going back to a restore point but that didn't work so I disabled the device in Device Manager. Now the device doesn't even appear in the Manager, even after re installing the chipset and the program. Does this warrant a belarc report to be solved?
Any help would be much appreciated and thank you for your time.

Unfortunately the duke of flukes wasn't lucky this time.

what graphics card do you have? if you have a 8600 or above it already has the ability to do physx processing. Whether or not the drivers still allow you to offload it to the physx card, I don't know.

whatever the case, it doesn't sound like it's working properly.

Hello everyone, I hope you could give me some clue that may have caused the appearance of an unknown device. All information here : An unknown device appears

First, That was solved by uninstalling and rebooting, did not appear anymore. But as I said in the previous topic, that solution does not leave me entirely peaceful.
Since when searching for information on the issue, some say it may be a virus. But also by the HWMonitor. I prefer it was caused by HWMonitor instead of a virus.

Can give me a hand to remove my doubts about whether it was caused by a virus or not.

I scanned all the PC with ESET 6 and nothing.

Thank you for your time and help

2.) Run the scan.

3.) When the scan finishes, save the results per the screenshot below. Then upload the log here.

I have a USB device that is not removed from the Device Manager after I unplug it. The laptop is a Samsung 700Z5B, win7 x64, updated with all MS patches, I'm not 100% sure if the BIOS is up to date, having trouble finding that info.

If I have just restarted the computer I can use my USB device just fine. From that point I can remove it once or twice, but after that it won't work again until a restart of the computer.

This seems to be the only device that is having this trouble. The hardware the USB connects to is a Moates Quarterhorse and it has an FTDI chip AFIK. I have not found anyone else having this issue with a Quarterhorse so I am thinking it might be an issue with my laptop as opposed to the Quarterhorse hardware.

Any thoughts or possible direction?

I have begun using HP Device Manager to support our thin clients across the floor. We use the HP Logon Manager to automactially sign into the specific "User" account on boot up.  Which then loads into Kiosk mode to connect through the HP Cloud Management. I have been trying to find out how to disable HP Logon Manager from HP Device Manager. So far with what I have tested, if I send a task to the thin client from HPDM and the task causes a reboot of the machine the task is interupted due to the automatic sign on of the "User" account on the device.

1. You can remote onto the Thin Client using "Shadow or Reverse Shadow" from HP Device Manager 2. Manually you have to switch to Administrator Mode from the User Login 3.

For the moment I've disabled the device to stop getting repeated "found new hardware" messages.
Many thanks,

Hi guys, I was wondering if anybody can help me with an issue that I have with one of my computers. My old motherboard went bad, I replaced it with a similar model ( I had a MS-6547 v1.1, now I have a MS6547 v2.1 or MAX. I notived that in my device manager, all my PCI devices show 8 times and with an exclamation point. I formatted the harddrive, installed windows xp, sp3. same issue, usually my NIC card does not need the drivers from the floppy, in other words, the Cnet pro 200 actually works after I format my HD. Now even if I try to install the drivers, it will not recognize them. Same thing happends with my video card and a USB 2.0 card. I formatted my drive again and installed XP ( no SP). Same issue, please help, thanks.

I have recently installed Windows98se. Now in Device Manager listing, Under Other device, it showed an Unknown device listed with a yellow exclamation on it. So, I remove that device and restarted my pc. After that on startup, it showed that this wizard will search for drivers for this Unknown device. But I could not find the drivers for this device. So I selected : Display list of devices.

In that I selected Other devices. On clicking next, it showed an Unknown device in the left and Unsupported device in the right box.

I clicked on the Cancel button. Please help...

Probably drivers for the chipset, all I see on msi's site is 32 bit drivers, so you might be outta luck until they update drivers.

Could always try to download the chipset drivers and point the driver update manually to it.

In my device manager I have an unknown device in the other devices pull down. It's location is on [Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System] Diver Status [The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28) There is no driver selected for the device information set or element.] It has no digital signer, no driver version, provider, or date. Under properties: details its lists...
This just showed up in device manager today and most of the info I can find on it is Vista 64 related. Can anyone explain to me what this is and if it's important?

A:Device Manager Unkown Device

Have you tried optional updates thru windows update - i think its to do with a monitoring chip on the board - there are a couple of drivers on the site - ASUSTeK Computer Inc.

Click downloads - vista 64 bit OS - GO to utilities - this maybe the driver you need - ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Win7 32&64-bit - i would see if this installs firstly, or whether its on windows update.

There is also a driver Im not sure about it could be : ACPI driver for ATK 0110 virtual device version 1043.2.15.37 for Windows 2000 / XP (32bit and 64bit) / 2003 (32bit & 64bit) / VISTA (32bit & 64bit)

I ve had a problem with the internet so I decided (foolish decision) to remove the network adapter s driver (Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller). After I removed and connected the wire to the pc it shows the adapter in the device manager net adapters list, yet there is a yellow exclamation mark on it. It says error 31 and when I try to reinstall the driver from disk it says it cannot find the driver.

I ve tried to connect my iPhone to the pc and use it as internet, yet there s an error 31 on it too.

What can I do? It happened few days after I cleaned my pc with cCleaner, maybe it s related?

Things I tried:
- restarting
- restarting router
- reconnecting the internet wire
- installing the driver from CD and from the folder

Nothing works... Please help, I'm hopeless

Yes, "FriendlyName" is used throughout Windows 7 too except there's no need to go through all the Permission steps. At least not for a personal PC. Use the same Driver Key search to find the device. This is a Registry patch so take all the usual precautions.

I have an hp pavilion dv6700 notebook and I can not get the wired lan to identify any networks. In addition, I am getting the little speaker icon with a red x that says no audio output device is installed. So you would think that you should just reinstall the drivers but there is nothing listed in the device manager and there is not even a tab for gaming and sound controllers. I have tried to install the drivers but get the error that the media device for these drivers is not present. The network adapter appears in the device manager and I have reinstalled the drivers many times and in different ways but to no avail. What kind of problem could this be and what else can I do? Did I mention that I have recovered to the factory state and still get these errors? I would think that this has something to do with windows update...

A:No sound device in device manager, no lan

Hve you made any changes in the BIOS that could account for the missing devices?
Different BIOS versions have differing ways to enable and disable hardware.
