  1. Without more information it's kind of hard to narrow down your problem.
    Was the driving working before? or is it a new drive?

    Have you tried other usb ports?

    Did the external hard drive come with software? Did you install it?

    Please tell us more
  2. new external hard drive sometimes need to be formatted before use.
