|I have had Windows Vista Home Premium for about a month working flawlessy and serviced packed and all up to date...|
I have a Western Digital "My Passport Essentials portable hard drive 320G" I purchased today.
I plugged it into my Vista PC the window popped up to say it
"Found new hardware and was installing software", I clicked yes,
"Windows could not find driver software for your device" (I did not think it needed drivers?)
So I tried "add new harware" via the Device Manager
"No new hardware found"
I looked in "Disk Mangment" in "Admin Tools" but it is not there..
I took it to my sisters place and tried it on her PC with Win XP Pro and it came up in "My Computer" in a matter of seconds, so the HDD is ok. It is supposed to be supported in Vista too.
I have 7 USB ports on my pc and have tried them all.
So anyone have any ideas?
