How do i get external hard drives to work?
I think I found a solution
Boy I had a HARD time with Win7 seeing my dual external Hard Drives.
I tried all kinds of methods....one works each and every time.
1. Unplug POWER to external Drive ** Leave USB plugged in !!! ***
2 Boot your computer
3 after your at Desktop - PLUG BACK IN POWER to your HARD DRIVE!!
Like I said I had a VERY hard time with getting my dual external drives to be seen by WIN7.
After searching all over , I found some methods , however they never worked for me.
I just tried different methods , and the POWER methods I tried worked 100% of the time.
I never read this , method , then again I might have..I have no idea...this was a VERY exhausting search - with my own PLUG n PRAY MODE - LOL
I hope it works for many of you I know just how FRUSTRATING this can be....
Any questions , fire away , Ill help the best I can...
I've got a cranky WD external HD that periodically goes missing and that seems to bring it back for me too. I don't know why it does it. I have a second one that never causes problems.
