    This issue can be caused if any of the following situations exist:

    • The currently loaded USB driver has become unstable or corrupt.
    • Your PC requires an update for issues that may conflict with a USB external hard drive and Windows.
    • Windows may be missing other important updates hardware or software issues.
    • Your USB controllers may have become unstable or corrupt.
    • Your external drive may be entering selective suspend.
    • Your PC motherboard may need updated drivers.

    To resolve this try the followings:

    This method resolves issues where the currently loaded USB driver has become unstable or corrupt.

    2. Select Device Manager from the returned list.
    3. Select Disk Drives from the list of hardware.
    4. Press and hold (or right-click) the USB external hard drive with the issue, and select Uninstall.
    5. After the hard drive is uninstalled, unplug the USB cable.
    6. Wait for 1 minute and then reconnect the USB cable. The driver should automatically load.
    7. Check for the USB drive in Windows Explorer.

    Reinstall USB controllers:

    1. Select Start, then type device manager in the Search box, and then select Device Manager.
    2. Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers. Press and hold (or right-click) a device and select Uninstall. Repeat for each device.
    3. Once complete, restart your computer. Your USB controllers will automatically install.

    Make sure your system's motherboard has the latest chipset drivers- if not, visit the support site of the manufacturer to download and install the latest drivers.

    Also make sure Windows is updated to the latest.
