    usb to ata/atapi bridge external hard drive not working in windows 10?

    I had the same problem. I had 3 different SATA drives and tried them all in 2 different USB enclosures and with different cables. All were recognized as USB to ATA/ATAPI bridges and wouldn't show up in My Computer.

    In Disk Management I finally got them showing up by assigning them drive letters.

    Hi ibme,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I understand that it can get difficult if the system are not working as expected.
    However, we can go ahead and try few steps to see if we can resolve this issue.

    Method 1: Check hidden devices in Device Manager.

    1. Press Windows Key +x
    2. Click Device Manager
    3. Go to Views tab and click on Show hidden devices from the drop-down menu.
    4. Then search for hidden drivers if any IDE ATA /ATAPI DRIVER
      are listed.
    5. Uninstall all the hidden drivers and reboot the PC, and check if that helps.

    I also suggest you to refer this article on
    Your CD or DVD drive is not recognized by Windows or other programs
    , and check if that helps.

    If you need any additional assistance, please write back with the
    model number for dell computer?

    I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Regards,

    IDE ATA ATAPI controllers

    Hello there

    I'm kinda stuck here. Trying to format my usb flash drive. Right clicking on usb icon and choosing 'format' doesn't help as it says: windows was unable to complete the format. So I decided to do it by cmd but the thing is I'm not even able to clean the disk
    as the following pops up: diskpart has encountered an eror the request could not be performed because of an I/O device error. See the system event log for more information.

    I've read that in this case you have to make some changes at IDE ATA ATAPI controllers but I see no channel being listed below that.

    So how can i format it without using a 3rd party software or updating my drives( as I'm not able to)?
