Question about Western Digital Passport WDXML800UE (WDXML800UETE) 80 GB Hard Drive
When i connect the hard drive it says that it is connected under the computer bios and under device manager and is working properly with up to date drivers but it will not show an icon under my computer. I tried it on two computers and am getting the same thing. My computers are both running amd processors running at 2.0 ghz with a gig of ram with windows xp pro. If someone could help me i would appreciate it. Thank you.
It seems as if the drive is damaged.
To see if you can just erase the partition on it, recreate it and see if that works:
Right click on "My Computer", go to "Manage", then Disk Management. You'll probably find the external drive in the list there.
Delete the partition you see, and recreate it from the same menu. Format the partition you just created, all through the same menu.
Hope I helped,

Assuming both PC's have SP3 installed there's a registry patch Windows put out to address the problem you're experiencing. Here is a link to the fix. Hopefully, this will solve your problem. Best of luck.
