My WD 2TB external hdd won't show up on my laptop

My new "My Book Essentials 2TB HDD" won't show up on my laptop which I just got recently to. I plug it into my PC at home and the external hdd shows up. I need this HDD on the go with my laptop for school. Anyone help?

  1. Is that drive powered by the USB connection, or a power adapter? If is is powered by USB your laptop might not supply enough power, or you may need to use a different USB port.
