make sure all leads that are attached to your cd/dvd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?
you might have to physically unplug the cd/dvd drive restart your computer this should activate the found new hardware wizard
Click start control panel administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question mark ? right click you will have options to update driver,roll back driver,or select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders







This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
hope this helps

yes we use these extensively for years, a backup media
I have like 5 of them , in home one for everyone here.
first off no LAPTOP stated, makers name and model, why post lacking this key fact, and no Canvio model stated. But... googling..
Ok the maker tells me its a HDTB420XK3AA drive.
it is 2TB HDD and not a 2TB SSD so has motor that is dead.
why is complex. but POWER IS BAD 99% chance.

the HDD uses lots of current, most need 2amps of current to run right and some 1amp, but the silly maker does not disclose what drives is actually inside nor the startup or run time current flows.(bad seller they are !)

so that means what? , Vast laptops made for 20 years will not run the drive only on a USB port, ok,
now some facts.
USB ports vary by 100mA (0.1A) TO 900mA (0.9A)
IF Your PC does not supply at least 1amp to the HDD it may fail.
mine all need 2amps to run, so a power pack is added to each HDD casing jack. but I bet yours hasa tiny slow 2.5" hDD and needs about 1amp to run. and will fail on vast older laptops. for sure. 100MA fail, 500mA PC usb power failed.

HERE IS HOW TO PROVE the case and true cause.,

if you read this, mess, below link you learn that USB has evolved fast from 1996 to NOW.
and USB-C PC PC can run you hdd easy now. see this reason.


so the answer is learn to find a PC that can FLOW 1amp of current on the USB port, (rare ) but can be found on NEW PC's only.

the answer to is this, next time only buy external HDD enclosures that has its OWN power pack that way it will run on ANY PC made.

Next time post what PC you own.
or ask them what is the power limits on your USB ports.
I bet you will not be happy with the answer, !@

Hello Kevin, try to connect a monitor to the monitor output, and see if it shows that it is working, if so, you would have broken the interconnection Flex with the screen
Also try, disconnect it from the power grid and take out the battery and let 30 minutes pass and replace the battery, and connect the power supply and test if it works
If with all these tests, you do not get results, look for a specialized technical service
I hope you can solve the problem
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Kevin, prueba conectarle un monitor en la salida de monitor, y ve si muestra que esta funcionando, si es as?, tendr?as roto el Flex de interconexion con la pantalla
Tambi?n prueba, desconectarla de la red de energ?a y s?cale la bater?a y deja pasar 30 minutos y vuelve a colocar la bater?a, y conectale la fuente de alimentaci?n y prueba si funciona
Si con todas estas pruebas, no consigues resultados, busca un servicio t?cnico especializado
Espero puedas resolver el problema

There could be many causes. First check for dirt in the cooling fan and radiator (just blow the dirt out).

Last I knew, unless you have some odd 3rd party application installed, the Internet Download Manager was free.
