I have an older model ACER one D255 and I also purchased a USb hook up externa harde drive that has worked great other times. I cannot get it to recognize some new guitar software i WOULD LIKE TO DWNLD. IS THERE ANYBODY THAT CAN HELP ME...PLEASE??? I'd really appreciate all the jelp i can get.
Is this a Sata, or and IDE drive? If IDE, then as mentioned you will need to be sure the jumpers are set correctly. If Sata, then that will be irrelevant. Is this to be a new boot drive? If so, then you will need to reinstall the OS on it from CD/DVD/USB drive first, otherwise there is nothing to boot from.
