I had my external hard drive plugged into my Vista computer, until my vista took a dump. Luckily I got all my pics etc on it before then. I tried plugging into my laptop which is a xp, but it is not recognized. Everything on external drive is turned on and lighting up. But when I pull up my drives it does not find it at all. Also, my drive is locked so I have to be able to unlock, which is kind of hard with out it finding the drive at all. Any suggestions on what to try?
I have tried the microsoft fixit, and that did not find the drive either.
