Q: External hard drive keeps turning off....Can't see that it is showing up in My Computer This thread is locked from future replies

I just set up a new computer and I have copied filed from my old computer to an external hard drive.  When I plug in my external hard drive to the new computer USB will turn on but only run for a VERY short time then turns off.  I tried to see that the external hard drive was showing in My does not show up there.  Is there something that I need to do in order for my external hard drive to NOT turn off after only a few seconds.  Why can't I see that there is another "drive" on my computer?



I would recommend you would contact the maker of the external hard drive and see if they can provide a flexible solution. Good luck, Bob
