Is the drive recognized when you connect the drive directly to the computer?  If so, then it has something to do with the usb hub, and you will to keep the drive connected to the pc, directly.  Or you can try getting a powered usb hub and see if that works.  If the drive isn't recognized even when you connect it directly to the pc, then you may need to make sure the drive is getting enough power by plugging it directly into the wall (just for testing).  Try different pc's and different cables.

Like Tarci , my cpu cannot recognize my WD EXternal disk. Although when I plug in via the usual  USB outlet a blue light fires up on the external drive and a message from the cpu that the system had detected a new hardware and would ask for the driver. I do not know if a driver was included when i bought it. Thanks. Im using XP windows and desktop
