Question about Philips Electronics - Others
I bought this mobile storage device on the recommendation of a friend as I would be able to use my extra HDD as external backup... i thought it was a great idea...
However, when I connect it all up and put it in my USB slot, XP won't recognise anything there. I cannot connect to the drive? Are there missing drivers or something? My USB works just fine, my brother's proper external HDD works without any problems... I believe this is a problem that others have found... anything I can do?
After consultation with the shop which sold the drive, they helped me work out the problem. Which was that the drive I was attempting to use in the Philips enclosure, had an OS on it, which was conflicting with the OS on my current HDD. So, that particular drive will need to be connected another way to access the information.
