I just bought a WD 1TB External HD. When I plugged it in, it didn't see it right away. I think after I rebooted the machine, it saw the drive. It showed it was what was supposed to be there.
I transferred some stuff over and everything was fine.
Later on that day or the next it shows up in My Computer (Win XP), but shows 0 Bytes drive and used space.
I know it could be DOA but is there another explanation?
Can't believe I drove 175 miles one way to get this. I will have to driver back to return it.
What can I do or check? I hear it power up and the light blinks but 0 bytes.
