Anyone that responds, talk to me like I’m two. Scratch that, a two year old could probably figure this out. I certainly cannot.
I have friends sending me their My Passport external hard drives so that I can share 100 GB of photos that I collected. I have had NO problems with any of the hard drives that have been sent to me, until today.
Usually when I connect a Hard drive, its little light turns on and you can feel it being on. When you click on “start” >“computer” it shows up as its own external driver and also a window will pop up asking if you want to view files etc. Then I simply click and drag and drop my files into the hard drive icon.
THIS odd drive does no such thing. Its light is on, and it is humming when I plug it in. But no window opens. When I go to “start”>computer it isn’t there. It shows up under “start”> devices and printers, which I obviously cannot drag information/files into. THe drive owner says it is empty, but I cannot even see that. Anyone have any ideas on how to make this behave like it is supposed to? OR WHY it is acting as it is?
