I've bought a WD passport external hd for my ancient laptop. Laptop only has one usb port which is being used to connect a keyboard as the one on the laptop doesn't work.
So, i attached a 'all in one card reader with 3 usb ports' and attached the external hd to this. The hd does not show up anywhere on 'my computer' but if i plug it direct onto the laptop then it shows up as external memory.
Is there a usb expander that will work with the hd, or will i have to connect it direct everytime i need to use it?
