Maybe cause it a laptop, and underpowered. You may not have enough "juice" in the laptop USB to power an external drive. I've had that happen, a laptop can't power a 3-1/2" hard drive enough, but can a 2-1/2" drive, through USB. | Report abuse WyomingKnott Storage Expert April 25, 2012 1:15:21 PM I suspect the power, also. My own solution to that is to pull out my powered USB hub (it has its own wall adapter), plug the hub into the PC, and plug the drive into the hub. If that solves the problem, it was power. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>Hitachi hard drive not recognized> Related ressources: ForumOne terabyte Hitachi external hard drive not recognized ForumHitachi internal hard drive not recognized by my compaq laptop ForumHitachi hard drive not recognized ForumTwo Terabyte Hitachi hard drive in an external case stopped being recognized ForumHitachi HTS725032A9A364 Drive Not Recognized ForumGuide: If you installed a new disk but the system can't see it ForumProblems with hitachi external hard drive , please help!!
