Computer does not recognize Portable Harddrive

When I plug in my Apollo 25 PHDD-320GB external Harddrive, it says "UBS Device Not Recognized - One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it." When I double click on the 'Unknown Device' in the list, it says "No drivers are installed for this device"

Hi, I had problem using Imation 27390 apollo expert ux. The hardisk is in NTFS format, and work perfectly fine when i plug in computer with Windows Vista and 7. But it cannot be recognized by computer...


Windows XP has limitations on recognising too large NTFS disks. One of the solutions would be to format the entire disk as FAT32 or make a partition and format that as FAT32.
