PX1393E drive external HARD not visible in windows Explorer

Hello world

I just bought an external DRIVE for my Toshiba laptop no disc PX1393E. I know that its old and he still has windows 2000 SP4 on it.

Now my problem is that my laptop does not recognize the external HARD drive. The Add New Hardware Wizard works fine, but I don't see the new drive in windows Explorer.

I looked in the FAQ of the guide. Here, I tried to go into the options of storage since rigt - click my computer in the management options. But I still don't see the drive.

Now, I wanted to see if I could find some update of the driver or something, but man you can't find on this site.




The drive cannot be partitioned or formatted.

Start-> Control Panel-> administration-> computer management tools-> Storage-> disk management

Initialize the disc and create a partition then format it in NTFS

  • Disk hard online, but not visible in Windows Explorer

    Hi guys, I need a little help.

    Today, I installed an old 80 GB Maxtor Diamondmax 10 PATA hard drive on my other PC, a Dell Inspiron 530, as a second HDD. I had to order new parts to connect actually upward from the power supply and motherboard SATA and IDE connections are not, but all those who are working very well.

    My problem is that this Maxtor drive does not appear in Windows Explorer. BIOS, see Device Manager it disk management he sees (and even said it's online). Just not Windows Explorer.

    In disk management, it is not a drive letter assigned to it, and when I right click on the disk partitions, anything but 'Delete the Volume' and 'Help' are grayed out. (Screenshot here: http://i39.tinypic.com/2ujpbeo.png)

    I'm a bit stumped, it's almost like I can't use the drive at all. Any ideas?

    Here's some more information about the system:

    OS: Windows Vista editions Home Premium (Build 6002, Service Pack 2)

    BIOS: Phoenix AwardBIOS review 1.0.18

    Motherboard: Foxconn G33M02

    CPU: Intel Pentium Dual-Core E2140 1.6gHz

    Memory: 3072 MB DDR2 SDRAM

    First HARD drive: 250 GB Hitachi SATA sister

    HARD drive secondary: 80 GB Maxtor Diamondmax 10 PATA (with jumper set to "Master DS")

    GPU: ASUS EAH4670

    And I should add, just in case... This is PATA to SATA card, I use the drive: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/320759737706?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT & _trksid = p3984.m1439.l2649

    And I just use a SATA to Molex cable I found to convert the power.

    Thank you


    Thanks for this info. I looked more into filesystems and it turns out that the disc was either FAT or NTFS - it was EXT2 which is a Linux file system. I found this by starting Ubuntu that supports multiple file systems.

    I didn't format it had data on personal, but I found an EXT2 driver and can now browse the Windows hard disk.

  • Clip + - music files preloaded not visible in Windows Explorer


    just got my new Clip + 4 GB. I plugged on the Windows 7 computer in MSC mode. In Windows Explorer, I see the complete folder structure and few files in the root folder. Explorer displays as well as the used space on the CLip + is 238 MB. However, all the files look empty! I can't find any single file of the music to the player. Can someone tell me how I can find these music files?

    Thank you very much!

    The music of the sample appears only when the player is in MTP mode.  Files placed in a mode can not be seen in the other in windows Explorer. If you love music, you can make a backup of it.  It cannot be downloaded if it is accidentally deleted...

  • Hard drive is no longer visible to windows 7 ultimate x 64

    Hi all
    I'm a MSDN. I have a number of virtual machines that I work on.

    Last night, I had two running virtual machines and failure at the same time.  They go on my F drive.

    Restarting the PC drive F is not visible to windows. I'm guessing that there is some sort of failure on the drive.

    I was looking around and found advice like going to disk management and rescan etc. No luck so far.

    I tried to switch the machine on in the BIOS, but in the bios ASUS, I do not see the mentioned drives.

    Can someone point me to a good article on how to diagnose the drive suddenly disappear like that with a failure suspected of some sort?

    This must happen a lot. I'm surprised that I wasn't able to find a good article detailed on google.

    I hope it isn't a catastrophic disk failure.

    Please accept my thanks in advance for any help you can be in this case.

  • External hard disks do not appear in Windows Explorer

    I have Win 7 SP1 64 bit Home Premium. Recently, four external drives are not recognized in Windows Explorer, but show in disk device manager &. They all work well and are recognized in another PC. I have tried different methods to solve the problem without success. I unplugged all the USB ports and the power supply for the discs off the PC. After a reboot, one by one, I turned on the readers and attached to their USB cable. Plug & Play worked well and I could open the files in the first drive. The player showed in disk management, the Manager of devices and Windows.  As soon as I installed the second disc, one disappeared from the Windows folder but remained in Mgt of disc and Device Manager. It's the same thing when I installed the readers of 2nd, 3rd and 4th... After the shutdown of the PC and turn it back on, none of the drives show in Windows, but has shown in managing disks and Device Manager.

    I also tried Mr. Fixit. I uninstalled all the USB controllers. I activated turn on AutoPlay. Nothing has solved the problem! If she can be of any consequence or relevant to this problem, the internal drive in my PC now has been cloned from a smaller drive about a month ago. Any help to solve this frustrating problem would be greatly appreciated.

  • Drive CD/DVD not visible in BIOS, Device Manager or Windows Explorer - only during the analysis of the system.

    Until a few days ago, this problem didn't exist - I know.  My CD/DVD drive is no longer recognized in Windows Explorer, BIOS or Device Manager.  It doesn't, however, appears briefly in Windows Explorer in the analysis of the security of the computer.  It allows to open/close, etc.  and when it is visible, I am able to open the drive and see the contents of the CD.  Then it disappears again.  The light flashes indicating that he works and I can hear it trying to read the CD.  I uninstalled iTunes because I read somewhere that this may have been the issue - but that didn't work.  I tried the system restore, registry cleaners, removal of upper/lower case filters from the registry, used the program Fixit found on the site Web of Microsofts etc and still no luck.  Any ideas?  The computer is a gateway SX2850 (?) with Windows 7 Home Premium installed.

    Some DVD players do not use the Windows default drivers so check with the manufacturer of system and

  • Drive external HARD encrypted in ExFat?


    I have a new drive external HARD I need to use on a Mac and a PC. I need to access the same files (data analytics), so I don't want to make 2 partitions and have duplicate files. What I've read, it seems that ExFat is the best option for this (they are large files, so that the FAT will not work). My work, however, requires external hard drives to encrypt. When I tried to put it on my MacBook Pro (El Capitan), however, I received an error.

    My question is this: is there a way to meet all three of these criteria?

    (1) disk encrypted

    (2) read/write on a mac

    (3) read/write, the same files on a PC

    I have a separate HARD disk for Time Machine, I use an airport. This disc will have to travel with me.

    Thanks in advance!

    If you were able to encrypt it using the built-in OS x software, Windows would not be able to decipher. If you use a Windows build-in encryption software, OS X would not be able to decipher.

    You have to find a 3rd party package that works on BOTH OS X and Windows, which can encrypt and decrypt on both platforms.

    In the past, I would have done TruCrypt, however, he was abandoned by unknown original authors, but there have been a few replacements based on the original source of TruCrypt.  Try googling 'TruCrypt Alternatives' and you might find something where they support the OS X and Windows.

    Otherwise, you will need to find another cross platform encryption package.
