I have just bought a second hand external hard drive and connected it to my PC via a usb socket.
My PC does not recognize it.
It does not show in Device Manager.
It is a Hitachi Deskstar,250GB capacity,Model No. HDT725025VLAT80.
My PC specs :
AMD Athlon X2 250 3 Ghz
NVidia GTS250 1GB
XP PRO SP3
Do I need to download a driver to make the external hard drive work?
If so,I seem to have only found one site and that seems to want me to install some Norton programme that I don't want.
Thanks in advance,(I will be out for several hours after initial posting.)
