Hi,

Have difficulty to show my Toshiba V63700-A 500gb external HD plugged in the USB 2s of my motherboard.

Saw this below in Amazon (£9.99) but does not mention Win8 only w7, has anybody by chance used it in w8?

Also my mobo has 2 free PCIE slots, will I need anything else with them or just plug into them & + power cable?.

The seller did not answer my Q. .....thanx ......nick

That does say it's compatible with Windows 7. It's a PCI Express card which is different than a PCI slot. If you're not sure if you have a PCI Express slot can you post a pic of your motherboard?
