My windows XP OS won't recognize my SimpleTech SimpleDrive Pininfarina 300GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive


I found that often, external hard drives just don't have any active partitions and thus don't show up in Windows. Go into the control panel, administrative tools, computer management and then the disk manager and see if it has a partition. If it's just unallocated space, right click and make one.

Windows xp not recognizing my external hard drive


The most likely reason you cannot see your hard drive on your Windows computer but can on your Mac, is that the drive has been formatted for GPT which is only supported on Windows Vista or 7 or above, not on XP.

You run MS Windows Update to download and install the latest OS updates. Your WD external HDD should be detected after OS update.

For non updates system, try to connect WD to the USB Port where it worked before. If you have 4 USB ports for instance, try to connect it to these ports one try at a time. Windows XP might have assigned one USB port for your device before when it was working just fine.

If you have a USB or Firewire cable you can just plug it into the USB port or firewire port in your computer and plug the power cord in if you have one and it should start recognizing it.
