Hey guys.

 

Just plugged in my old Hard Drive to my laptop via USB and nothing is happening.

 

Nothing is popping up saying anything is connected. The light is on the Hard Drive, which makes me think its something to do with the Laptop.

 

I haven't changed any settings or anything, was working a couple of weeks ago fine.

 

 

 

In a rush to get to work so cant really give many more details right now sorry.

Maybe try one of those Y-ended USB cables and plug both ends in to get more power to the drive.





Life is too short to remove USB safely.

Well I just tried it again and it worked.

 

Unplugged, went to plug it in again and now not working.
