Go to START-->CONTROL PANEL. In the new window that appears, double-click on ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS and then double-click on COMPUTER MANAGEMENT. The COMPUTER MANAGEMENT window will now appear. In the list on the left side, click once on DISK MANAGEMENT under the heading STORAGE. Now look on the right side of the window and you should see all your hard drives and cd/dvd drives listed. Locate the one corresponding to the external hard drive and right click on it and select CREATE NEW PARTITION. The new partition wizard will now open, just follow along with the instructions.
Once your drive is finished being formatted, it will now be ready to be used and should be visible in MY COMPUTER.

Yes, now that you have the drive formatted, you will be able to unplug the usb cord from your computer and hook it up to another computer and it will work just fine. The only problem you had was that the drive was not formatted and therefore Windows could not use it until it was.
Will it be use-able on other PCs - i.e. can I use it for data transfer?
