  1. USB suggests an external drive to me. Is that correct? What are the symptoms? Does it make noise? If so, what kind (whirr, grind, click)? Do the lights, if any come on?
  2. Is this a brand new drive you have never used before? If yes, then have you done the required steps of Partitioning and Formatting it so Windows can recognize it?

    Or, is this an external unit that was working with files on it, and then it stopped working?
  3. Did you change the jumpers to slave?
  4. If this is an external drive in its own case, there are no jumpers to change. Or, if it is an internal SATA drive, it also has NO jumpers to change. Jumpers only apply to internal IDE drives.
  5. when i do defragment it show two much in red clour.how can i finish it because i have defragmented many times but it does not finish red side.

    Hello, rehan uddin. This question is unique enough that you could start your own question thread, using the "Ask the Community a Question" button at the top of the storage forums page.

    That's not true on all hard drives. I've experimented with a wide variety of hardware and that is not always the case. It depends on your hardware on hand...
