What type of computer running what operating system? Does your external HDD require external power? If so, is it powered on? Have you tried connecting via another USB port? How about trying the ext HDD with another computer?

Give us more to go on and someone may be able to help. Good luck!

Is this a brand new empty external drive? If yes, have you Partitioned and Formatted it to create the "drive" needed for Windows to use it?
