Could anyone pls suggest through experience what is the problem with my portable hard drive.
I have sometimes seek an assistance on how to make this drive be reconigised by my computer. I have been able to use administration tool to discover, patition, and format this drive. Now my problem is that I can save file unto this drive, but whenever I want to make use of this file the message would always be that my equipment cannot work with my new drive. I cannot understand the behaviour of this drive, any suggestion?
This hard drive is housed in 2.5 SATA external case with USB connection.
I am trying to use on both my laptop and the desk top. My laptop is Toshiba equinum 2.3ghz, 256mb ddr. Os XP home edition.

Can you give us the exact wording of the message. What OS is the desktop using and have you formatted the drive in NTFS or FAT32?
