Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
I have a laptop and a computer..the problem is when i plug in an external hard disk...only my laptop can read that hard disk..my computer can't read it..can u help me to solve the problem??
I am assuming that you are using Windows XP and USB PORTS on both computers.
First, try to use a different USB PORT on the pc, just to rule out a bad one.
Another thing is that the external HDD may not connect to USB 1.1, only to 2.0 for the speed it needs. Check to see if the pc has USB ports on back of case, those are usually 2.0.
Third thing is to see if any other devices that are USB can connect to your pc. If not, you may want to load the USB DRIVERS back on the pc, as they may be corrupted.
Hope that helps.
