Lenovo Ideapad C340 not recognizing external hard drive

Very confused, attached a portable harddrive to laptop, got a ping pong response so I know it has been recognised but when going to Files/PC the drive does not show up.

 

Any suggestions please and thanks Smiley Happy

Moved to proper section.

 

It might help to know the make and model of the external drive and by what means you're connecting it... USB? USB-3, etc.

Tried my  collection of external HD's - wondering .......  Bit green as to whether newer USB ports can read the older versions?

PS:  I did search before posting but could not find anything applicable to my puzzle - new to the forum where do I find a list of sections to avoid posting in the wrong place again!

Top left of this page, under the picture of the laptop. Click "English Community" to get a full list of sections.

 

Yes, older hard drives should show up, but it might depend on the drive itself, age, formatting and so on.
