Question about Western Digital 250GB MyBook External USB 2.0 250 GB Hard Drive
My external hard drive will not read onto my desktop. I have tried plugging them into different usb's and none of them regonizes the external hard drive. BUT when a mate come over home and connected the hard drive to his laptop IT WORKED!!! I have tried the hard drive on 2 other laptops but still don't work. What do I need to do?? I have no other drive's coming up in my computer so it ain't regonizing the hard drive...
please please I need help and I want to get some very important family photo's off this hard drive.
I can help you with this. Follow these instructions--> Start-->Control Panel-->Administrative Tools-->Computer Management, under the Storage section select "Disk management". Locate the external harddrive, and then change the drive letter.
Select the external drive. Right click, and select "Change drive letters and paths"-->Highlight the driveletter to change-->Click the "Change" button-->From the drop-down list choose an unused drive letter, and hit Ok.
The external drive should be recognized and accessible at this point. Let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank You, Raph30
