    I have just bought a new portable hard drive made by Zynet, but it a Fujitsu hard drive, anyway, I came to install it, windows said it has installed the driver, but it is not showing up on my pc's, checking the disk management page I find the new hard drive is not initialized, so I click on initialize now, and get a box popping up say 'The device is not ready'?
    I have updated the usb drivers to no effect, tried uninstalling, restarting, reinstalling all to no avail!
    This getting REALLY annoying as I want to back 100's of GB of music on to it?

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION REQUESTED

    Have you tried plugging it into different USB ports on the computer?
    Have you tried doing a Windows Update to see if you can obtain the latest drivers?

    Can you also post additional info on the model of the HD?
