Please help!

Check if the drive shows up on Disk Utility.

If it does you will be able to test and repair the partition if possible.

If it does not show, try a different cable or different computer.


Please try some basic troubleshooting.

1- Connect the power adapter to the wall directly.

2- If the computer is a desktop, connect it on the back USB port and try another USB cable if possible

(directly to the PC, not through a hub).


3- Go to “Disk Utility” to verify if the drive shows up there.


If the drive shows up in disk utility but it is not seen on your desktop, then it means the partition is corrupted and you will have to format it in order to use it again. Please note that formatting the drive will delete all data stored on it.
