Why external hard drive not showing up in my computer?

My 320 GB Seagate external hard drive is detected but not showing up in my computer. What should I do?

In disk management it shows up as 'unallocated'. If I initialize it, will I lose all data on the drive? It had 4 partitions.

In Device Manager it gets detected.

In cmd> diskpart> list volume it does not show up.

In My Computer also it does not show up.

Even BIOS recognizes it.

What to do? I don't want to lose any data on the drive. If I initialize it in device manager will I lose data?

I was installing window XP on my computer, usually I remove the external drive but this time I did not. The external drive was shown as 4 drives in partition manager during installation. But the installation failed. The next time I was installing windows again, the external drive was shown as 1 single unknown or unrecognized drive. I'm not sure if it was unknown or unrecognized. I'm sure I didn't format it. So what I need to do now? I don't want to lose any data.

Hi, it may be something wrong with the driver software , it could be broken or outdated,  so your hard drive not showing up on your PC. If you initialize it in device manager, you may suffer from data lose.

You can update your driver first or troubleshoot the PC. If this way doesn’t work, you can initialize the drive. But in order not losing data, you can make a backup first or download a data recovery software.

Many reasons can lead to this situation, such as faulty drive, virus attack, hard drive hidden, etc.

In my view, it is more likely that the external hard drive is problematic, drive hidden or partition lost. To fix it, you can choose some technical tools for help. This tutorial may be helpful: https://www.partitionwizard.com/partitio...

By the way, you could consider upgrading your os because some programs are not compatible with Windows XP nowadays.
