Question about Western Digital Passport WDXMS800TN 80 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
When I connect the drive to any computer, The New hardware wizard starts and wants a driver. I doesn't find one of course, and the system will not recognize the drive. Is there anything that can be done?
go to start->search->all files and folder
search the file named INFCACHE.1
delete that file and reebot your pc.
The computer should now recognize the HD.

Tips for a great answer:

The hardware that you are trying to access is damaged or failing.
The device drivers for the hardware are faulty or incompatible. There is a connection problem such as a bad cable
click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll through all of your devices
if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark ? ! or a red X you will need to update the drivers for this device right click select update driver/reinstall driver
if you can see your usb device but its not working scroll to Ports(Com&Ltd) right click to update driver
if you computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle to shutdown or fail to detect a hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE,SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a
secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty if its a flat 40pin ide
this will be the first to fail
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions
or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps
