Problem solving

Unrecognized storage device: the external storage might be an unrecognizable format. This can be adjusted when attached to a Windows OS beforehand.

Second hard drive connection: identify the cable type by view the motherboard. Two cable types are SATA and PATA.

Incompatible memory card: purchase a card reader that is compatible with your memory card. It comes with a USB cord to connect to the computer.

Inaccessible files: the computer that you are using might not be able to synchronize with the server, or the computer where you last put the files that you are attempting to view then did not synchronize and upload the files onto the server properly.

Media not support: purchase an optical disc reader that comes with a USB cord. This would enable your computer to read CD and DVD files.
