Question about Compaq Armada E500 Notebook
I have an old Compaq Armada E500. I purchase an EIDE internal hard drive. I purchase a USB to IDE/SATA converter so I can use the hard drive as an external. Now the device shows up in Device Manager but it does not show the volume nor does it show up in My Computer as a disk drive? Do I have to do some special formatting or is it just not compatible? HELP!
Right click on My computer,then manage,disk management, if popup occur,click yes to all and finish,then right click on new drive,create new partition,click yes to all, wait for format.....done.If you don't want to format or already formatted then right click on drive, change drive letter and paths and assign new drive letter away from c.d or e...make it x...problem should be solved JJ
