Question about Buffalo Technology 1TB DriveStation TurboUSB (2x500) External Hard Drive
My DEll PC runnig XP SP3 cannot "see" my external Buffalo 1.0tb drive. Buffalo Tech support no help. Using "Disk Management" by PC can NEVER see the external drive. Buffalo Tech support is really giving me the runaround. I'm working on my second drive. First drive had the same problem. QUESTION: Is Buffalo 1.0tb external drive compatible with Windows XP. I have connected this drive to three other PCs, all XP and NONE of them "saw" this drive. PLEASE HELP !!!!
Yes the drive is compatible with XP. I have seen a slightly higher than normal # of problems with their 1TB models so this may just be a batch problem. My suggestion if there's nothing crucial on the drive is to return it an purchase a different brand.
If it's not returnable you'll have to settle for asking Buffalo for a replacement. If there's crucial data on it you will need the help of a recovery pro. In that case, comment back with your Country, State and City and I will point you to a nearby Recovery facility.
Hope this helps FixYa,
