Loading 2 mypassport 2tb drives simultaneously


i purchased two wd mypassport 2TB drives and individually they load on my PC running windows 7. But when i have both on, the power lights flash but only one of them appears mounted. Indivudually they are fine. Doesn’t seem to matter if i plug one into the back of computer and anther in a HUB. control panel hardware says they are both mounted and working.

Please advise as to how to get both to appear. i want to use one as a main external drive and the other as a backup



This is a Windows problem this post explains how to fix http://community.wdc.com/t5/My-Passport-for-PC/Copy-files-from-one-drive-to-another/m-p/277504/highlight/false#M7587
