Question about Dell Inspiron mini 9 - Black , Intel® Atom Processor® N270 1.6 Ghz , 1 GB DDR2 at 533MHz, 8GB Soli... PC Notebook
I am unable to read my external hard drive from my xp. When I tried to see if my other laptop could see it it in the computer management it came out unallocated. My other laptop is using vista. How do get my XP to see the external drive without losing any data?
Most of the software you need comes internally with the drive, plug in the power supply, plug in the USB port and reboot your computer allow the software to install. If you still don't see a drive letter, unplug the drive, reboot, then repeat the process above.
Also it is a good idea to format and partition the drive the way you want it. Once you see a letter for this drive right click on it (my computer) and you'll see format. that should do it , hope this helps you, please leave rating, thank you
