Bought a formac mini disc , ( no external power source )
picks up power via eBay port ( green light on formac mini disc shows lit )
Refuses to register on my computer.
Peter, on the premise this is new to you and you didn't buy it with stuff you want to keep ...
It may not be mounting/showing up because it's not formatted -- the computer may be seeing it, but it's not capable of reading it, or there's a problem.
This runs off USB, not eBay, ports -- and, as you say, does not need an external power supply.
If you're on Windows XP or Windows Vista, you'll typically want to reformat to "NTFS" ... the default specifications, if you're given an option, will work fine.
