Problems with External Hard Drive

By ndrai3gsx ·
I have an older model generic usb hard drive by Medion, which I am trying to connect to my HP G60. The drive worked fine with my old HP Pavilion, but my new HP freezes when I try to connect the drive. Is it possible to overcome this problem, or am I going to have to get a new external drive?

Not sure

It could be:

-Poor voltage/current to the drive, if you aren't using external power

-the drive is USB1.0 or 1.1, and your port is USB 2.0 only maybe.

Also, some older drives have to be powered off and on with reboots and disconnections.

Good luck
