My Pc (running Win Me) can not recognize a new external USB HD. I figure it is the HD number was not designated (like C:, D:, E:, F:,,,etc). Can anyone please tell me how to do this ?
Windows should assign a drive letter when it recognises the drive.Did you install the software before plugging the drive in?
Is it showing up in Device Manager? If it is there it will be called USB Mass Storage Device or something similar.But you will need to install the drivers for it in any case as VoG states.
My Win Me recognize USB pen drive (Flash drive) automatically. Device Manager did show a a question mark in "USB mass device", however, "My computer" and "File Manager" did not show the drive. Anyway, I have had the USB driver installed, but only in vain.
Normally, there is a CD/floppy with drivers on that comes with the HD drive.You could try removing the device in Device Manager and rebooting to see if you get the 'new hardware found' message, and then put the CD in and direct Windows to the correct location.If you haven't got a disk, try the HD manufacturer's website to see if you can download from there.
