Hi;
I know that you just have to plug an external hard drive in to a computer and it works right away. My problem is, I used my external hard drive so I could tape TV shows on my Bell Express Vu receiver. I disconnected the external drive and want to use it on my computer but for some reason, I can't get it to work. It shows up under Devices and it's called "Desktop". Can't see what's on it or even open it. Normally they will show up under the same area as you other drives but it won't this time. Any suggestions out there?

Thanks

The drive would have been formatted to work with the receiver. You'll need to re-format the drive to work with your PC. Unfortunately in the process any data on the drive will be erased.

Could you, or anyone, please share how that can be done, since the PC only recognize the drive as "Desktop" ? Thanks.
