I had a HP laptop which died a couple of months ago. My boyfriend took the hard drive out of it, and made me an external hard drive.
Yesterday, a friend copied some pictures she had taken from her notebook to the external hard drive. When I tried to copy those pictures to my computer, the external hard drive no longer showed up! I still get an option to Safely Remove Hardware and eject media after I plug it in though.
I'm not sure what's wrong. The drive showed up fine on her notebook, just not my computer. How can I fix this?
