Hi, When I plug my external HD into my laptop's USB port, I get a message saying something like:
"Ĕŷã^,þ>ỷN}ï - installing driver software..."
Then it sits there "installing" for maybe 10 minutes and then when it stops, no error, but the drive isn't showing on Windows Explorer.
Sometimes it never stops "installing".
So the laptop is at least recognizing that one is plugged in.
I have replaced the external enclosure with numerous drives, with data on them, it happens on all of them so I am thinking it is an issue with my laptop... not the drives.
