Hi, my External Hard Drive doesn't show in My Computer anymore
What should I do to bring it back?

The hard drive seems to be working, and the wires are all ok; usb is fine. I have already tried Disk Management but it does not appear in the list. Used to be F://.

Please help! Thanks

Try the drive on another computer and see if it is recognized.

It's not, I tried it on my husband's laptop too, it doesn't even recognise that a usb has been added.

What is the make and model of the drive? When you say working, can you feel the drive spin up and does it stay spinning?
