I recently purchased an external hard drive for my computer and when i plug it in absolutley nothing happens. It is not showing up anywhere on my computer. I have read all kinds of troubleshooting pages and tried every suggestion! It is not in My Computer, under Device Management, under Disk Management, does not show up under safely remove hardware, and I am out of ideas!! My OS is windows XP and supposedly there are no driver updates required for the use of my hard drive with this OS. If anyone knows of anything I might not have tried to resolve this problem I would really appreciate some suggestions!!! Thank you very much!!!!
