hard drive does not recognize memory stick or inserted disks

nothing happens with the computer when we put a disk or the memory of my meter stick in the hard drive


OK... your computer has a media player, you insert the card in?

If you go to... Start / my computer... There should be one or more readers
listed as... Removable Disk... These are the slots of the media player.

If you insert your memory card and do a right click the Removable Disk that
represents that slot you can choose Explore and see the content of the
card. From there you can copy and paste or drag and drop the files in a folder
on your hard drive.

Also... right click on the removable drive that represents the memory card
and in the menu... Choose... Properties / Autoplay tab and open the fall
window and select pictures. And... ICT... "ask me each time to choose
an action "." Maybe this will restore the AutoPlay window when you insert
the map.

You could also try... on the left by clicking on the button "Restore default settings" / apply / OK.

And... the following link might be worth a visit:

  • Hitachi Touro Desk pro HARD drive does not recognize on the computer of Windows 8.

    Original title: Windows 8 - Hitachi Touro Pro support

    I have a Hitachi Touro Desk pro HARD drive that no longer works since I've upgraded to windows 8 last week. If I leave it connected during startup, windows will not start and if I connect it once started, it does not appear in the Solution Explorer, even if you can hear the disc turns away.

    The HARD drive works on all other computers and operating system, not just windows 8.

    When Microsoft will release a patch for this problem? I really don't want to have to re - install windows 7 so that I can access my files again.

    I have installed Windows 10 Technical Preview version 10049 and connected my drive from 750 GB Hitachi touro in USB 3.0 and it WORKS!

    I can't believe that after several years of frustration with this device with Windows 8.1 incompatibility it finally works great in Windows 10! Please check if you also have Windows 10 TP if your Hitachi drive works as well

  • External CD drive does not recognize the CD burned on El Capitan.

    Using El Capitan 10.11.5 and an external hard drive, I have burned successfully mp3 files iTunes CD - I can play on the computer itself - but an external CD drive does not recognize, even if the Player recognizes the discs once engraved on Snow Leopard and previous models.  What's wrong? I burn "at the fastest possible speed," as I have always done.

    What CD format?  If you burn it to a CD mp3 this is not very common for a standard CD player to be able to read those.  You may have burnt the other CD audio CD format.

    Hello res04n70, it is possible the CD laser has become defective or even dirty, since you mentioned, he began to act gradually upward. The DVD has a separate laser. This may explain why the DVD works as it should.

    Ypu can consider replacing the DVD drive, because they are pretty cheap now. Some brand DVD players can be purchased for less than $20.00 USD.

    Here a link to NewEgg is where some of these players can be found.

    Just some thoughts.

  • Hard drive is not reflected in the list of disks

    Device Manager recognizes a disk but the disk management does not show in the list of disks (affected/not allocated).  You want to set up and assign a drive letter.   Thank you.   Russ

    < original="" title:="" disk="" management="">

    Hello Russell,

    Thanks for posting your query on the Microsoft Community.

    With the publication of the description, I understand that the hard drive is not reflected in the list of disks on your Windows 7 operating system. I will certainly help you get this problem.

    This problem can occur because of incorrect settings. In order to solve the problem, I would suggest trying the following methods and check if this is useful:

    Method 1: Troubleshooting hardware and devices

    Integrated the hardware and devices troubleshooter can automatically detect and fix most of the incorrect settings and errors that could cause problems with the equipment. I suggest you run the troubleshooter to check if there is no problem with the graphics card. See albums as follows:

    1. open Control Panel

    2. click Troubleshooting and select the option to display all on the left pane.

    3. click Troubleshooting of hardware and devices and follow the prompts.

    Try Method 2, if the problem persists

    Method 2: Make sure that the drive is enabled

    Follow the below mentioned steps to make sure that the drive is enabled:

    1. click on start and type device manager in the search box

    2. click on Device Manager in the control panel list

    3 locate the drives item in the list, and then click the small arrow to the right to expand the list of readers

    If a disk is disabled you will see an icon with an arrow pointing down on the icon of the hard disk

    If you see an icon with an arrow pointing down on the hard drive icon, double-click the icon and click on the button Activate peripheral

    4 then click on activate a device dialog box, click Next, and then click on finish

    5. click Close, and then close the Device Manager window

    Note: If you do not see your hard drive in the listed readers, the player is not detected by Windows.

    Note: If you receive an error message when the hard disk is activated, you can have a bad hard drive.

    Hope the helps of information. Let us know if you need help with Windows related issues. We will be happy to help you.

  • Satellite M30x - new HARD drive does not work


    I am installing a new ATA 2.5 "internal hard drive for my Toshiba M30X-166. The drive is a Seagate Momentus 5400.3 120 GB model. The laptop does not recognize the disc and no related error message appears, and in the BIOS, it shows as "HD not available."

    I put this drive in an external USB - IDE enclosure and was detected by my desktop PC, and I was able to partition and format the Momentus, so I know the drive is indeed work, but my M30X still does not detect the drive.

    What can I do to make the laptop recognize this unit? The BIOS M30X is: Phoenix EAL20 version 1.90.

    Thanks for your help.


    Have you tried another HARD drive? The new HARD drive is may not compatible with the laptop or does work does not correctly.

    Normally, a 120 GB HARD drive should work because the laptop has a limitation of LBA 28 bits and so you can only use hard drives 120 GB.
    In the worst cases, the HARD disk on the motherboard controller is defective :(

  • Replacement HARD drive does not not in 27-inch imac 2012

    Hello apologies if this question has been asked and answered before.

    I've owned a Mac for many years, I'm comfortable shooting them to make any necessary repairs. My most recent Mac a 2012 13.2 27-inch iMac was a fusion player was not part of the HARD drive, the merger fell apart after the reconstruction of the merger and restore the system, the HARD drive failed this time, I could hear the sticktion in the drive so that was it. I had to put a replacement isn't a problem (so I thought) I did some research and bought a Seagate 3 to 7200 NAS drive to begin with, I thought I leave my machine on ground why not a NAS drive for the operating system.

    I had then the car adapter OWC with heat sensor, after getting the iMac apart that I replaced the drive, something I've done before on other Mac waiting for the machine to start with no OS instead, all show the iMac is the SSD it recognizes not the replacement drive at all no prompted me to format the new drive.

    I spent some time trying to figure out the problem to reset PRAM, put mode target to see if the disc looks for another mac, no luck in the terminal, the 'diskutil list' only would show only the SSD.

    I opened the iMac this time put in a Seagate HDD 7200 3TO standard before putting back together I ran the iMac with attached to another screen. It doesn't seem to matter what I put in the iMac in the car it does not recognize them, I was putting in old spare parts to see if it was a problem with the current firmware. I started thinking to the question could have been the SATA cable until I plugged the original drive in. Immediately the old disk could be seen and mounted perfectly in a last effort I got a model the same SSHD Seagate I checked is intended to be supported with this type of iMac still nothing ditch.

    I am at my wits end with this issue, it is as if the original is savvy to the system some how I read that 2009 iMacs had problem s similar I don't understand other iMac of the same model that the mine had the problem of fan speed and any player could be used. It aims to be a kind of firmware I am destined to load in the new drive.

    My options are very limited and for once I feel lost and let down by apple if it is worth $800 and $1000 to get the same 1 TB per apple apple player or as RESTful seems much this repair is already in me for $1200 (I have cracked the screen of origin)

    If any advice is much appreciated. My idea lasts is put back together and just start the operating system on an external drive to USB 3. The current SSD is too small for my image of time machine only 128 GB to restore to.



    A few thoughts here.

    Is it possible that the OWC adapter is faulty or well you don't connect it correctly? http://youtu.be/iWyJxnBM-Qu Unless I read wrong looks like the original drive is recognized and original SATA cable, but when you add the adapter into the mix, it does not work?

    Have you tried partitioning and firmatting the disk before you install it? Sometimes, who will do the trick.

  • a disk hard mbr does not recognize my card mother xp - 703


    I'm trying to downgrade my windows xp-703 aspire 8.1 for windows 7 and cannot operate.

    I disabled the secure boot. Windows 7 will allow to install on an MBR disk, but when I put the drive on the MBR (using another computer) that acer will not see the hard drive.

    I feel, this computer will only recognize the GPT disks.

    I even took a drive work with windows 7 and connected to this computer, and it still does not recognize the drive.

    Can anyone offer advice.



    Hi all.

    Thank you very much for all your comments. It is resolved. I now running Windows 7.

    (XC - 703) my mistake in the subject line.

    I need win 7 because I have a software that does not work in win8 or win10.

    It has proved to be a BIOS initially. I got P11 - B1, who does not have the option "Launch the CSM". I had to reinstall win8, so I could run the upgrade of BIOS of windows that I was unable to boot from any external drive. Update BIOS version P11 - B2. Once I had started from my win7 disk (64-bit), I could use SHIFT + F10 to bring up a DOS window and use DISKPART to clean the hard drive.

    He then completed the installation of windows 7. I knew that he should like Acer provides Win7 drivers.

    Once again thanks a lot for your help.
