Well, I decided to take a look on it from my netbook (because I didn't even think to even try) and I'm getting the same issue. Since this is the first time trying to install it, the computer when through the "looking for driver for new devices" or something to that sort. It got to the end of the search and said, "device driver was not successfully installed."
So I guess I could be getting to another possible issue. How can I download a driver that the computer can use? And when I do, I should assume that I can access my HD as well correct?
