Q: Lenovo Yoga 720 USB drive not detecting my External Hard Drive

I have a 1TB external hard drive and my Yoga won't detect it. The same port detects my cell phone, and other storage devices. I'm not technologically savvy, so if anyone has an idea of how to get it to boot again, and can give me step by step instructions, that would be great.I can't find a tech support phone number anywhere. Thankyou

Hello,

System - Windows 7, 32 bit, Kaspersky total security

Problem with external hard drives.

1. Toshiba 2b hard drive is not recognizing by my PC
if recognizing hardly creating tik tik sound and disturbances in file transfer (no transfer).

2. WD 2tb hard drive is recognizing but sometimes creating disturbances in file transfer (no transfer).

3. 4tb WD hard disk also not recognizing by PC

Hard disks with external power adapters working with PC but disks without external power are creating
severe problems like not detecting, if detecting not functioning properly, file not transferring mainly large
files. Whereas all disks are working fine with my HP Laptop.
On my laptop I can use 2 external hard drives with 2 usb ports and can transfer files directly from one to
another external drive but on PC it is impossible, creating functional problems. Pen drives are slow but OK
on PC.
Some people suggesting for PC Format, Kindly suggest me solutions.

A:External Hard drive not detecting in Windows 7

Hi allen2013,

Welcome onboard.

Forget about the first one which can be seen and worked with on both XP and Windows 7. Please pull that out and keep it far away beyond your reach.

Now tell us the manufacturer/make/ model/ capacity of the problem drive - the second drive.

Tell us whether it worked on Windows 7 before.

Safely remove all other USB drives/Card Readers on your Windows 7 PC - I presume it is a desktop. Just plugin your problem drive only and post a fresh screenshot of how it looks in Windows Management.

I have an external hard drive (Western Digital Elements - 1TB, aproximately 2 years old), which is not recognized at all from a newly bougth ZBook 15 G3. When the disk is connected to the computer it spins up properly but apart from that I receive no other indication or message. I checked at the disk management of windows and I can't see the disk at all. I faced the same issue while I was using linux with the same computer and still I could not see the drive entry at /dev or by running any hardware/disk detection command like lshw or fdisk. Other removable media like usb sticks or external drives are working properly. Initialy I thought that it was an issue of the disk, but when I tried it to 4 other computers running both linux and windows and it worked flawlessly.  Any ideas?

A:Problem detecting external hard drive

I would try to see if the disk is formatted in disk management. To get to disk manager, right click my computer, go down and select manage. Once in the Computer Management utility, go to Disk Management, your External should show up there as an unallocated disk. On the Bottem part of the split screen right click the area with the diagnol lines. If your disk is not initialized go ahead and do that, make it a primary partition, select the drive letter and such, and select quick NTFS Format. If you have any CD rom drives it will skip letters for those drives, then give you the next letter.

I downloaded the MiniTool Partition Wizard and attempted to recover my data. I completed all the steps expect the last step as I can't right click to give the drive a letter.

I have important unbacked information on this device. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Thanks

Hello Liyah,

Your screenshots are two small to be able to read.

For now in Disk Management, see if you area able to right click on the smaller Disk 1 box in the lower pane, and click on an Online or Initialize option in the context menu. Afterwards, make sure the disk has a drive letter.

I have a LaCie external hard drive (this one here) that was given to me by a friend, and for one reason or another W10 wont show the external drive as an option under Devices and Drives when selecting "This PC" or My Computer. I can see my SSD with the OS and the internal 2nd drive but not the LaCie. The only place it shows that it knows a drive is connected is in the task bar where it gives the option to eject the drive and in "Devices and Printers". And selecting the drive from there doesn't provide many options, it just opens the properties window for the drive. I don't even see anything telling me what format the drive is, but I have a sneaking suspicion its formatted for a Mac. Is there a way I can get this drive to show on my computer?

The only thing I can think of is to try installing some firmware updates from LaCie's website, but since this drive contains film footage (that im not sure has been backed up or not so its possible this is the only copy of the footage) I want to be absolutely certain that installing the firmware wont erase anything on the drive.

Hey Guys,Im trying to get a laptop working for my brother. He has a Yoga 500-14IBD. The laptop works perfectly fine with the current hard drive running windows 10.He has been sent out a new hard drive which has been preloaded with windows 10 but adapted with specialised software (which shouldn't be too important for the issue).I installed the new hard drive into the Laptop and it won't boot past the Windows Boot Manager. The laptop does recognise the Hard drive and see's it is connected but wont boot into it. Where it gets weird is that I tried this hard drive in my other Lenovo T420 Laptop and it boots into the hard drive no problems. This rules out hard ware issues. Is there something which needs to be adjusted in the BIOS to allow the Yoga to boot up into this hard drive? I have tried switching from UEFI Mode or Legacy BIOS mode but this didnt make any real difference. There was an error showing in Legacy mode regarding PXE-E61 Media Test Failure Error but this occurred when the laptop worked in my T420 so it shouldnt be related.  I have tested another Windows 10 installation Hard drive on the Yoga (the one from my T420) and it worked. Just a note the hard drive that isnt working is not and SSD but the ones which are working are SSD'sAny advice would be appreciated

Hi Everyone, I'm at my wits end and was hoping someone might be able to help me understand what exactly I need to do, purchase to bring my laptop back to life. Long story short, I have had this for just over 2 years, no more warranty and the hard drive I believe is going out/has gone out. It all started with a failed windows 10 upgrade, kept looping, finally I blew away I guess everything on it. Now when I am trying to re-instal windows 8.1 it tells me that it cannot because the hard disk may fail soon. I can get mostly through the windows setup but it always ends up failing. My question is, can someone help me identify what exactly needs to be replaced? I am fairly tech savy good at following directions and installing things by myself. (garbage disposals, haha). What I am not good at is trying to track down what hard drive to buy would be? I hate to bring it to best buy as its $200 just for a diagnosis and then whatever to fix it on top of that.  Can anyone offer insight and help me become enlightened? Thanks so much, L

Hi all, I recently purchased a Lenovo Yoga 300-11IBR with the 32gb internal hard drive. I thought it would suit my purpose well as I only want to use it to run software to check error codes on my car (not much hard drive capacity required). I'm really disappointed though as I thought it would be super-fast to boot and use with 32gb SSD that only runs the operating software; how wrong I was... Long story short I?m trying to improve the performance and would like to install a 64gb SSD; I have remove the back and found the connector (SATA_CONN1) but it has no cable connector. Does this mean the motherboard will not support a SATA drive or does it mean I need a connector soldered on (this looks very tricky as the pins are so close together). See attached photos of the inside of my notebook and the connector cable I intended to purchase. Any help would be greatly appreciated; if I don?t get this resolved the notebook will be going in the bin and I?ve wasted a reasonable amount of money. Final resort is to down grade from windows 10 to windows 7 and free up some disk space. I?d like to do this anyway but struggled for 6 hours already to undertake this task; I keep receiving an Error Code: 0x6 Thanks, Richard

Hey guys!

My Zune 80gb stopped working a while back. It wouldn't charge. So I thought I would take out the hard drive and use it as an external 80gb hard drive. So I bought an 1.8" ZIF encolsure for it and installed the hard drive into it.

All appears good with the installation. When I plug the hard drive into the PC the light on the hard drive enclosure comes on and stays on & the disk starts spinning. Then Windows Vista does the whole "Install new Hardware" thing and calls it a "Disk Drive" and a "USB Mass Storage Device" and says hardware is installed and ready for use.

But the problem is I can't seem to access the drive. I can't find it anywhere. It doesn't show up as a drive I can use or anything. I tried a third party partitioning prgram to try and find the disk so I could reformat it but it wouldn't it couldn't find it either. I even plugged the drive into my Mac thinking that Disk Utility might be able to recognize it and let me wipe it, but the Mac doesn't recognize it as anything.

Back in Vista, Using Device Manager, Vista notices the drive under the "Disk Drives" option as a "Disk Drive" and that it is elecronically signed by Microsoft (since it has the Zune firmware on it) but I can't do anything with it ... And this is the only place where I can see that the drive even exists. I can't reformat it or anything.

2. Desktop HDD [low cost, higher speed but need external power]

I want to know that...

2. I heared that pulling off USB cable of Portable HDD may cause data lose because it also supplies power to hdd.

Unless you really need to go portable with a Laptop .. I'd not use a USB powered External.
You cannot boot from a USB External .. But there's another option if you're capable of physically changing HDDs ..

Get a good external Enclosure (with a fan for cooling) .. Install a good HDD ... with a 5 year warranty
and make the HDD in the enclosure a bootable backup .. where you could swap HDDs if/when needed ..

So after my prehistoric motherboard finally died, I bit the bullet and did a complete system overhaul, upgrading to my current listed specs in my profile along with a new Windows 7 Home Ultimate x64 install.

However, it has provided me with an unexpected issue. Windows no longer detects my Toshiba USB 3.0 external Hard drive. I know that the computer itself can detect it because my Asus Sabertooth Z77 motherboard's BIOS window lists it among the connected drives. However, despite the LED light on the drive itself coming on when I initially connect it, the light eventually goes off. It is not listed in the My Computer drive listing, nor is it detected within the Disk Management or Device Manager lists of devices or drives inside Windows and it worked perfectly on my old Windows OEM x32 OS with my old build.

Can anyone help? All of my precious work is located on there, including my major college assignments due next week and while I did do backups every several days, one of the assignments was hammered out in less than that in several all night sessions.
