|I bought an external hard disk (WESTERN DIGITAL WDMEB3200TE PASSPORT ESSENTIAL 320GB). I connected the disk to a usb port but my system is not able to recognize the disk (WinXP Pro SP3). The disk shows up for a second in Windows Explorer and in Disk Management but it disappears instantly. |
Other devices (usb memory stick, mobile phone, camera) work fine at this usb port. I even bought a USB 2.0 PCI Card but the problem remains. I tested the disk on a laptop and another desktop pc (WinXP) and it works fine.
What can I fix so that the disk can be recognized by my system?
