Question about Western Digital 500GB My Book World Edition 500 GB Hard Drive
Hello! I need help. I have an HP pavilion laptop with windows xp os and it is not recognizing the external hardrive. Ive been in device manager and dont get all the parition and allocation business. I have tried it in three different ports. lights are on the device. My new P.C. recognized it immediately.
My Acer laptop won't see the drive. When I connect it through USB, it recognizes it as an "Unknown Device". I have only used this drive before with my G4 mac, as a firewire drive. I left it formatted as a PC drive though, for compatibility.
My book world is a network drive, you should connect it to a router / switch using an ethernet cable. if you use a usb cable to get it recognized on your computer it will never work
