    To fix, I have changed USB ports on my Notebook Dell computer still external Seagate drive was not recognized

    Working in the drive menu, I found a message that said:

    I cannon find where in Windows to find where such a "administrator Policy" can be changed...

    computer not recognizing usb drive

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are unable to use USB drive on your computer. I’ll certainly assist you with this.



    However, please let us know:



    • Do you receive any error when connecting a USB drive?
    • Does this issue occur only with one particular USB or with all the USB drives?
    • Are you aware of any changes made to the computer prior to this issue?
    • Which build version of Windows 10 is installed on the computer? To check type
      winver in the search bar on the Taskbar and hit
      Enter.
    • What is the make and model of the computer?


    Meanwhile, I would suggest you to refer the troubleshooting steps mentioned in the article

    Error: “USB Device not recognized”
    except for Method 1 and 2.



    Let us know how it goes.



    Regards,

    Nikhar Khare

    My computer won't recognize my Segate USB drive

    help. USB drive isn't assigned a drive letter.

    Any usb flash drive I plug into my computer isn't assigned a drive letter. The physical drive shows in the "safely remove hardware" but it doesnt show up in disk management. I have tried to populate the volume thru the safely remove hardware properties window and it does pop up in the list but it doesn't stay there. This isn't a format or assign a letter problem. It's more complicated then that. Maybe one of the services needed for usb drive management was disabled? Suggestions needed. btw external usb harddrives work fine.
