Question about Computers & Internet
Hello rcavan !
You dont need any special drivers to install this external Hard Drive to your computer. All operating systems (OS) have hard disk drivers built into the OS by default. No additional drivers are required for the drive itself.
Here are a list of compatible Operating systems for your Hard drive:
Windows 7 / Windows Xp / Windows Vista
Built for MAC OS X 10.3 or newer
If you are running Windows:
step 1: turn the computer off
step 2 : disconnec the Hitachi HD from the power outlet
step 3 : connect the USB cable to the back of the computer and to the Hard Drive.
step 4: connect the power to Hard Drive
step 5 : wait for 5 minutes and go under My computer
It should under " Computer " and ready to use
Now, if for any reason dont see it there you can go to device manager by making a right click on computer, then Hardware Tab, click on device manager and look for any device with an exclamation mark on it, make a right click on the item and select update driver.
If you are being asked for drivers by the installation software or your drive is not detected during the OS installation, you may need to download the most current version of your controller or motherboard drivers. To obtain the most current version of your controller or motherboard drivers, please contact the manufacturer of your controller or motherboard or visit their web site for more information.
If you need something else let me know
