I have a iT WD My Book Model WD1000C33-001. I want to use it to backup my desktop and my laptop. I am able to get it to be recognized and work omj my laptop but not on my deasktop.
Both computers are running Win 7 Pro. When I connect the drive to my desktop I get a message that says that there is an unrecognized USB device. The drive does not show up in Widows Explorer, Computer or Device Manager.
When I connect it to my Win 7 Pro laptop it is recognized and I was able to copy files from the laptop to the drive.
I would really appreciate any advise as to what I need to do on my desktop to get it to recognize the My Book drive.
