I have bought a 2.5 HDD
for my laptop (Vista OS), Western Digital (WD1600BEVS) to use it as an external drive but when connected trough usb it does not show in my computer. In disk management it shows as an unknown drive and needs to be initialized, but when I right click and chose initialize either MBR or GUID I get disk not ready. I tried it on my desktop (Vista OS) but with the same result. I changed it with the HDD
inside my laptop, installed OS with no problems but when I tried it again as an external drive I had the same problem ....any help please
ps. I also tried it as an external drive on my other desktop with XP but still with identical problem!!
