as Windows will assign a different drive letter. With a different drive letter, names don't matter. And if you're concerned about the drive name, just change it. That's too easy.
Two Maxtor External HD?s on Same Computer?
I already have a Maxtor OneTouch 4 Plus (500GB) External HD that?s hooked up to my Dell Vostro 420 Desktop and operates under Windows Vista Business. It works fine and is recognized as:
Disk Management: - OneTouch 4
Device Manager: - Maxtor OneTouch USB Device.
I want to install an additional Maxtor OneTouch 4 Plus (1000GB) External HD in the same computer. Would there be a possible conflict re device names, since the 500GB and 1000GB HD?s might possibly have the same name? Or would the 1000GB HD display a different device name to differentiate it from the 500GB HD?
