    Hi
    My hard drive doesn’t light up or is recognised on my computer or device manager. When I plug it in another laptop it works perfect.
    I tried a flash drive in the one that doesn’t work and it recognised that perfectly.
    Please help

    There is no such thing as a WD Hargrove and I was hoping to be able to look it up for you so the model number is important.
    I take it the drive is an external USB drive?
    Is it a portable model? (meaning no power supply you need to plug into the wall)
