I purchased a 750gb external hard drive. When I plug it in (it requires a power cord) the light comes on and I can feel it spinning, but when i plug the usb it in to my computer it will install the driver but won't show up in computer. I have tried pluging it in to different ports and it does the same thing with other computers.

go to disk management and see if there are any partitions. if not you will need to create a new partition and format it as NTFS.
