    Recently I have bought 2 external HDD's. They are both Vento by Asus and include 320 GB WD HDD's inside.

    One of my HDD's is able to be detected by Windows Vista (after several tries), whilst the other HDD isn't being detected.

    I have looked in Device Management, Disk Management, My Computer and Google, and can't find a solution to get this damned external HDD to show up.

    If anyone has come across a problem like this before, and knows of any ideas which will lead to a solution, help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have formatted the working drive to FAT32, however this broken drive doesn't even show up [​IMG]

    Thanks for any help in advance!
