hi, all. a while ago i bought a my passport external HD. i connected it to my macbook and used it without issue. i deleted the PC driver because i’m stupid. i’ve been kicking myself for doing that for MONTHS.
well, i have a new computer, and it is a PC. plugging the hard drive into the pc, i find that the pc (hp probook) recognizes that i plugged something in, but cannot access it.
at this point i’m out of ideas. i went through hp tech support for a while and the issue is the hd itself. is there ANYTHING i can do to render the hd compatible with the pc?
at this point, i don’t mind if it entails wiping it completely of data… i can find other ways to transfer my files, but having a useless 250gb hd is pretty painful.
