SOURCE: Is my external hard a plug and play?

In most computers that are encountered, devices that are plugged into the USB ports are "plug & play" capable. There are numerous scenarios that can turn this function off inadvertantly such as a virus, data corruption or driver changes. In order to fix the issue and make an external device, such as a Western Digital Passport Elite hard drive "plug & play" capable, a user will have to make a few system changes. Click "Start" and "Run," then type gpedit.msc Click on "Administrative Templates," from the tree then click on the "System" folder. Double click on "Turn off Autoplay." Select the "Disabled" option and ensure it applies to all drives. Hope this helps,

REQUIRE WINDOWS 7 DRIVER FOR IOMEGA SILVER SERIES 250GB EXTERNAL HARD DISC DRIVE. THANK YOU


The external hard-drive is "plug-and-play", and Windows XP/Vista/7 all support "plug-and-play".
Thus, it should automatically be detected by Windows.

So, what's your "real" problem? Symptoms? Error-messages? What happens? What does not happen?

How do I down load to an external drive and not the main computer


1. First, you need to select the external drive while saving any game.
2. Try to play it from External drive first, if game does not play from external drive then try to play it from the Internal drive.
3. It does not make any difference whether you are playing game from external or interna drive because both the drives will use the computer resources and softwares to play the games.

Good Luck.

Copying sims2 game to an external hard drive


I suggest try playing the game on a different computer. This usually happens when you play the game on a computer that does not meet the games system requirement. Most probably the specifications of this computer is lower than the computer you originally play the game with.
