i bought 4 Western Digital WD20EARX hard drives to fill up with music and movies. the problem is they are not recognized on ANY of my computers(netbook, laptop, nor desktop). i am able to see it in Device Manager on my desktop(running XP). i haven't tried Device Manager on the other pcs yet; which are running Windows 7(laptop), and Windows 7 starter(netbook).
i want to add that i installed the HDD in an external case and connected it via USB. i tried TWO of the FOUR hard drives and neither was recognized.
any suggestions? i would really like for the drives to work on ALL pcs, but my preference would be the netbook.
