More about : usb device isnt recognized jsc a b G Storage October 5, 2010 4:30:02 AM First thing to check is whether the USB drive works in another computer. If it doesn't, the drive is defective. welshmousepk October 5, 2010 4:43:15 AM a HDD should not need drivers to run, windows should recognize it as a mass storage device and use in-built drivers. as JSC said, test in in another system. also, try using a different USB port in case its the port that is defective. is the HDD formatted to the right format? is it new? used with another system before now?
