I just got a My Passport Essential 500gb, and plugged it in to my Dell Inspiron 6400 (running XP SP 3). It runs for a minute and then brings up a blue screen starting with text saying
" A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
BAD_POOL_HEADER … etc"
I then have to turn off the laptop by holding down the power button as I can’t do anything else after that. I have a photo taken of all the text which I started above.
Is this a power problem of the hard drive, or is it possibly corrupted? It works on a computer with Vista, I haven’t been able to try any other XP computers.
I very much appreciate any help! Thanks
