I just bought a portable hard drive and have managed to drop and drag what I want onto it, BUT when I plug it into my desk top it's empty?

How do I find my stuff on another computer?

Done it! :roll:

Was going to delete the thread, but I'm sure I'll be back with more questions - or maybe someone else might!

I could be wrong here, but I think you might need to format it first. I'm using my external on a PVR, and had to format it first, but since you're using yours on a computer it might not need it.

There were no instrustions with it, and I assumed when I plugged it in it would run through prompts, but it didn't, it just sat there - so, it just so happeneed I had a plumber in and I asked him if he knew how to run it, so he showed me, and how to drop and drag etc etc etc - when he left, I put it into my desk top.

I had to do a file search and typed in the name of the actual thing it was stored in (auto run), and there it all was!

Now I have to go back and delete the short cuts and put in all the run programs as the short cuts obviously don't work! Computers! :roll:
