Specs: Windows Vista
I have two portable hard drives (WDME2500TA and a Samsung) and neither of them are working on my HP laptop (Vista) and eeePC (Windows XP). ie. the drivers are not recognised.

They were previously working, so now I am confused if I need to install some driver software or what has happened...

I have alot of my photos on them and was about to clean out the HP as previously my password wasn't working (due to too many applications on desktop - fixed now through the safemode user rename).

Can someone help me?

Thanks, worried Sam

It is unusual that two different drives don't work on two different computers, You need to try the drives on other computer to find whether they are readable. Did you safely remove the drives when used? Otherwise it is easy to corrupt them.
