But my laptop is not detecting the drive. RSS ALL ARTICLES FEATURES ONLY Search Find Your Missing USB Drive in Windows XP Have you ever plugged in a USB drive or any external device with a hard drive and I think you're saying you need the entire XP package though.

I'm an 81 yr old pensioner, I can't afford another external hard drive especially when it works well on Windows 7. Reply Cat November 30, 2015 at 5:45 pm Thank you so much. you will need to slipstream the driver with nlite and change AHCI mode on Bios IF YOU CAN. It won't let me repair or verify in the Disk Utility because it says "ERROR: Partition map check failed because no slices were found." Now, I can't access my files on

Disable USB Power Management => Windows' USB Power Management has long been problematic. (And there’s also a long history of hotfixes to prove it!) IMHO I advise disabling USB power management Much lv n respect max kudos!

Select Universal Serial Bus controllers Right-click each USB Root Hub Click Properties then click the Power Management tab Clear the check box next to Allow the computer to turn off this This was my third XP cd burn before I had it working correctly. In fact, it took two follow-up e-mails for me to get all the details I needed to find a fix.So to you and all other readers, I kindly ask that you Log should reveal device errors (I/O, corruption, etc.) which are severe so Linux (and probably Windows) will not present the new device to other software to see/use.

Reply Sol January 6, 2017 at 8:36 am Hi Tried this opened disk management, I don't have a windows key so used the "search programs and files" instead. If yes, verify drive info is what you expect >> (eg. If you see a partition is deleted or becomes corrupt it may appear as "Unallocated" If your disk appears marked as "Unknown" or "Not Initialized" and/or it has a single "Unallocated"

I did so by right clicking the unidentified USB drive that was shown in the Disk Management window and assigning it a unique drive letter.

If a drive isn’t recognized by any computer you connect it to and never shows up in the Disk Management window, it’s probably dead. Reply Christopher Cormier September 7, 2016 at 3:51 am So I tried this and none of my USB ports are working.

I just needed to change the letter path on my external ssd after I reformatted it like 3 times for the computer to recognize it again. Fixed it in literally 5 minutes following you're detailed instructions. After a 20-second rescan, my externals and my Hot-Swap Deck always appear.
