Hello, my iOmega 500gb external hardrive shows up in "computer" on my Dell Latitude D630 laptop, but is not recognized by my brand new, today, Dell Inspiron i630 desktop.

What do I need to do to "fix" this?

Does it show up in Device Manager? Disk Management?

Is it powered from the USB port, or an AC adapter?

If it's a power issue, then try a USB Y-cable. This will pick up power from two USB ports.
