    External Hard Drive not showing in My computer

    Hi,

    My external hard drive (Imation--Apollo m300) is not showing in My Computer. I can see the drive when I access Device Manager and Disk Management; BUT, the drive shows as having 0 Capacity, 0 Reserved Space, and 0 Unallocated space when I ask it to populate
    in the Volumes tab of Properties. I do have (or did have) lots of files on this drive. Also, the drive lists as "Online" in Disk Management. (Note: I do have another Apollo m300 external hard drive, but it's working just fine.) Any help would be greatly
    appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Kevin

  3. Toshiba Ext Hard Drive

    Since upgrading to Windows 10 my system won't recognise my external hard drive. Worked fine on Windows 8 .It is a Toshiba 1Tb basic. Any suggestions would be most appreciated as their are many family photos involved.

    Thanks Tony

    Toshiba External USB drives not showing in Explorer or Disk Management Plug-in

    The manufacturer does not list a driver for the Canvio HDTC705AL3A1 model which shows the problem. The drive was visible from an XP machine, and after this was visible once on a Win 7 Machine but is currently not visible on the Win 7 machine. There are many
    driver update programs available, but the disappearance of visibility on the Win 7 machine would seem to indicate a hardware problem with the device.

    A post describing a I TB Toshiba USB Drive which could be accessed from XP but not Win 7 is at

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-hardware/1tb-external-hard-drive-works-on-xp-but-not/3f04c33a-1eb2-49d6-9cbe-8384962ff52d

    The answer was:

    I found the problem to be with the controller that Toshiba uses on their external hard drives.




    I removed the Toshiba hard drive from the casing, put it into a SeaGate casing (thus using a SeaGate controller) and it worked fine.




    To my knowledge their is no software work around for a Toshiba Ext HD and W7. Take the HD out of the casing, buy a cheap eSATA to USB connector & problem solved.


    Do you think this is likely to be my problem? I don't have any spare removable USB drives to try the treatment suggested
