Have you tried connecting the drive to another computer to see if it works with that computer?

Hi Jaydip,

I am sorry for any difficulties, caused by your My Passport drive. I strongly recommend you to check it another PC and with another USB cable. Search for the drive in Disk Management and in Device Manager. If the drive is working fine on another PC, open your Device Manager and uninstall the USB Hubs. Restart the PC, all the controllers should reinstall automatically. Connect the hard drive and try to access it. Do you have important data on the drive?

Hope this helps
