Wd green not recognised by acronis nor manufacturer in windows

I have a wd green 240 that I clean installed Windows on Dell Inspiron laptop. All went ok. However I decided to use the drive in a Sony Vaio laptop so I formatted it and linked to the Sony to clone via acronis wd. But it does not recognise it and restricts installation of acronis. When I look at device properties it shows up as a standard drive and no reference to wd. Would the full version of acronis work or what am I missing?
