  1. I assume when you say the "external" doesn't show on your computer that you mean a desktop computer as opposed to your laptop computer. I'm also assuming that you are plugging into USB ports in both cases. Have you tried plugging something else into the same USB port or tried plugging your "external" into a different USB port on your desktop? Maybe a bad port or a bad cable?

    It probably doesn't have a drive letter selected or partitioned correctly under device/disk manager. Please check to make sure both of these are done.
