When I connect it to my computer via USB it does not get recognized by my computer.
I am confused as my other SATA drive (when connected using the same SATA to USB device) gets recognized without fail.
Is there something I need to do to the new drive before it will auto-detect?
It makes the noise when you plug in the USB but then nothing else happens.
EDIT: Windows now detects the drive but requests it be formatted before use. However, every time I try to format, after about 3 minutes it fails. Saying: 'Windows was unabke to complete the format'
