Lenovo Ideapad C340 not recognizing external hard drive

2019-10-07, 22:01 PM

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 :)

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.
