Question about PC Desktops
Hi, I bought this external harddrive to save my photos, videos work etc. But when i hooked up with my pc via usb cable it shows that usb attached then start downloading drivers and it shows USB mass storage in safley remove hardware box. But the problem is that I cannot see this drive anywhere to transfer my stuff . Please help me as my pc is gone really slow and i want to move stuff to external harddrive. thanks
If it says its in the safley remove, but its not showing up, it might have the same drive letter as one of your other hard drives, for XP: 1.go to control panel (start -> control panel) 2.click on "switch to classic view" (top left) 3.click on "administrative tools" it should open up and show more icons 4.click on "computer management" it should open the computer manager 5.on the left side, with the drop down menu's and stuff, open storage, then clikc "Disk Management" 6. in the window left of what you just clicked,find your drive, you should not the capacity and basic stuff about your drive, you should be able to find it 7. right click on your drive and click "Change Drive Letter and Paths" 8.click "Change" 9. in the drop-down menu choose a new drive letter, that isn't being used 10. click Ok and it should work. if it doesn't see if your drive needs to be plugged into a wall to get extra power. or somthing
