I am here a lot sooner than I would have thought. I have to hurry up and type because I keep getting a C+++ error and it closes down. Here is my problem.
I have a new computer HP that I bought in Nov. because I didn't want Vista on my new computer. It's a HP Pavilion Windows Media Center although I don't have the media center connected to my TV.(who wants to watch TV sitting at a computer) Well I had it installed in March 2007 and everything was going pretty well. It's a duel core, 400 GB and more than 20,000 memory.
I wanted to buy a good one because it will probably be my last. Well it had a bay slot on the front that you could buy more memory and just slide it in. It's called HP Personal Media Drive. There were 4 removable disks on my computer, so it could hold enough. I went for the big one, 500GB. To hold me till I croak. I printed all of the directions and followed them astutely. When I went to look at my new disk in the computer, it wasn't there. In fact when I was looking around all of the removable drives disappeared, G, H, I and J.Gone
I am on a high speed cable that just turned from Adelphia to Comcast.
Well somewhere I was checking said if this did not work to call my IP, so I called Comcast.
Now he told me I would have to get a router and have it installed. This didn't sound right to me but I am self taught and don't know much, so it could be true.
When I added another drive on my last computer I didn't have to get a router. Why would I have to on this one.
Does anyone know if this is what I have to do or is there something else maybe. This little endeavor is going to cost more than the removable hard drive, I might have to go back to work. Yikes!
I am the only one that uses this computer, we have no home network.
I hope someone here comes up with something this is so frustrating. Hey your site didn't shut down on me yet.
Oh Yeah! I have a new windows XP sp2 dual core. Intell V//V.
