My Dell Dimension 4600 will not recognize my Verbatim hard drive. It recognized it a couple of times but now does not. When I click on external hard drives from "My Computer" tab I get nothing. I tride to copy/paste files from Drive C to the file and...no response. Though I am good with Windows applicatons, I am not very literate in file and hardware maintenance.

Is the drive listed in Disk Management? Did you properly remove the disk using "Safely Remove hardware"?
