Anamika, welcome to Tom's Hardware Forum!

What is the error message that you are getting? If this external hard drive is new, it must be first formatted NTFS before it can be used.

Pull out your hdd from original external box and put it into differnet external box. If it still the same, it is the problem of your hdd.
