My book pro 500g external drive works on my xp home but not on xp pro

My Book Pro 500g external drive never wants to work on my xp pro laptop and PC. I have xp home edition on two other PCs and the My book Pro is recongised and works ok through usb 2 connection. I had it working on my XP pro PC for a day tansfering files onto it in Fat32 fortmat and then learnt that the drive would perhaps work better formated as NTF but having done so still can not get it recognised on my XP Pro PC and lap top. Have reformated my XP pro PC in the hope that the ex drive would be recognised on a clean XP pro PC but it refuses to do so. Has anyone got an easy answer. It worked for awhile but not any more. disappointed and frustrated yodel

Hi Yodel, Plug in the Book Pro. Then ff you RIGHT mouse click on MYComputer then select PROPERTIES and then click on HARDWARE then DEVICE MANAGER Do you see any exclamation marks? If you do, click it with the mouse and select remove. Then unplug the Book Pro, restart the pc and then plug the bookpro back in. Let me know what happens.

Hp pro book turns on but screen won't work

Did you try connecting it to an external monitor? Then try software updates and see if you can roll back the driver for the monitor or the computer to when it worked right.

Lost install disk for Mac book pro My 13" Mac book

You will need some install disks to even begin working on your issue.
Your options:
  • Find someone with the same model MacBook Pro and borrow the disks.
  • Buy a copy of Leopard (10.5) or Snow Leopard (10.6) and use them. If you are going to buy a set you might as well update to Snow Leopard (10.6)
  • Check eBay for install disks but make sure they are for the same model MacBook Pro.
  • Contact an Apple service center and purchase a replacement set of install disks.
Once you have a install CD, I would recommend backing up your system by making a disk image of the hard drive to an external drive. Then doing a clean install and then using the Migration Assistant to restore your user files to the clean install on your hard drive.
