Hello, I plugged in a USB hard drive, 2.5", PC and notebooks running on vista business and XP Pro OS. Why are the computers can not display the external drive in "my computer", even if the computers detected the presence of the hard disk?
Hi Fatal, it was connected to different PCs and different platforms. For your inform, i tried with PC with i7 and C2D processors, Apple Macbook Pro, and HP desktop PC. By the way, the hard drive inside the case, is a Fujitsu 2.5" mobile hard drive with SATA interface.
Hi everyone, i want to thank for all your answers. I had fixed the problem already. first i did some configuration to the storage management in the system management application of control panel. By converting the drive format. This should have worked with most external drives, but for mine. i still need to plugged in an external power source, which it was not needed before, from another USB port. By the way, everyone's effort are appreciated, we need not to be harsh to one another, we all in the same boat and trying to help and share our knowledge.
for your information too, I did disassembled the external drive, and detached the mobile hard drive (SATA type) and installed it to another enclosure, still it was not working, but both external enclosures work well with other hard drive.
