Answers :

Please give some more details on the machine and OS u are using, sounds\015\012like you have got windows installed and the external harddisk is being\015\012recognized as an unknown hardware device.
\015\012you may face following problems:
\015\012
\015\012- either you need special drivers for it suiting to the windows version u are using(google!)
\015\012- or your PC still has only the 1.1 USB ability
\015\012but the external hd is 2.0 USB and that's producing trouble
\015\012
\015\012anyway
\015\012
\015\012in windows XXX:
\015\012-make sure you are logged in as an administrator
\015\012-then you may try to find the harddisk using the windows explorer or
\015\012-left-click'start' goto 'system' then 'hardware'. double-click now and perform a search for new hardware
\015\012- does windows find the harddisk now?
\015\012- let it install the drivers, unplug usb-device, reboot, reconnect and now it can be found like any other harddrive
\015\012
\015\012good luck - if still facing the problem, please post another request on\015\012fixya and give more details on your pc and the harddisk..
