As does anything in the USB port since it has power direct to it, even when you haven't loaded the proper driver files for the data side of the USB.
Go to HP, download the driver files for the controller chips (north bridge, south bridge) and install them so your operating system can then actually "see" the USB ports for the data side of it.
Ok, I bought a 2tb Seagate external drive which I swapped in my ps4, and took the 500 gig drive out of the ps4 to use as my external drive for my laptop.
But, my problem is, is that when I put in the usb cord to connect my external hard drive to my laptop, it lights up, but it doesn't show up anywhere on my laptop. I've done the disc management, and nothing is showing up as well.
My laptop is an HP Pavilion g, came with windows 7 64bit, but did that upgrade for windows 10 64 bit.
I have no idea as to why it wont show up on my laptop. If anyone can help me out, please!
