I am glad this worked. Let’s hope you’re not one of those unlucky members that thought data on an external disk has eternal live and ‘forgot’ to back it up to another device.

It should detect it as another hard drive in your system and you should be able to access the files. Have you solved this yet?

Can anybody help me please?

I plugged in my Western Digital external hard drive wdxms model code and everything worked fine, I was able to transfer files with no weetern – until Windows 7 asked me if i want to do a disk check for errors on my drive. I took it to my work IT department and they opened it up and pulled out w1d200xms-00 USB card and connected using their own equipment, and it worked great. I just got a 2GB flash drive and it doesn’t get recognized either. Does the device show in Disk Management? I plugged it in back and it downloading wd200xms-00 in pictures etc in folders, But they would not open, I tried to change folders to thumbnails to see what pics where in folders, it would not change???


Can you do that stuff?

The actual USB connection part on the 2GB flash drive is longer than what is on the other flash drive that works. Tech Support Guy is completely free — paid for by advertisers and donations.
