I have a Hitachi 2T external drive. I previously used it with my desktop. Couple nights ago I installed it into my laptop but did not format it (the computer said i would lose info i format). I simply installed pictures from my camera disk. At this time when I plugged it into my desktop it does not show up under the list of storage options in my computer or file save. I tried to search it but no success. help me please.

first make sure it is detected by the bios. if it is, run the disk management tool in windows to get more info on the drive and partitions.
