Hey guys, I have got myself a external portable hard drive. I plugged it in to my pc, and it recognises saying found new hardware trekstor hard drive etc, but then asks for the cdrom - Found new hardware wizard - and is asking for the cd rom to install it.

The installation autorun things are already on the drive and should autorun. I thought it was something to do with the harddrive.

Anyway i plugged it into my laptop, and what do you know, it recognises it, installs automatically, and is ready to go.

I just wanted to know is there anything i can do on my pc settings to somehow install automatically by the setup thats already on the portable harddrive instead of having to do it manually kind of thing.

When it says would you like to install the software automatically, it just looks for a cd rom, when i try to do it manually, it can't find the external hardrive with the autorun stuff on it so im stuck.

Please help guys!!!
