hi my new external hd is usb2 powered but its icon doesn't pop up on the screen when its plugged into a usb port. a green light comes on to tell me theres power running through it but the red light tells me it cannot read data files.

i think its something to do with formatting? if theres a real tekhead out there and can help it would be appreciated.

QUOTE Thanks
