I have a wd my book 3tg 1130. i have used it on multiple computers with no problems. plug it in and installs right away and never a problem.
i got it so can do backups and plugged it in to a hp compaq computer running xp. the drivers installed but the drive won’t show up. it does not even appear in disk management.
i had a older firmware on it so upgraded to latest and installed it to wd while it was connexced to the compaq .
the firmware installer detected the drive and upgraded with no problem so obvioulsy the usb is not the problem…
made sure i had the latest drivers for 32 bit and the drive shows up under hard drives on device manager but still can’t access it and doesn’t show up in disk management.
