I have a Western Digital 1 Terabyte external HD USB 2
It was running for years via my computer as a storage for my family history. It was easy to detach. Finished with Family History, I had no need for the Ext HD.
My Recorder at the TV allows me to move recorded programs to a USB ext HD. To do this, I had to register the Ext HD. This I did.
I move three programs of the recorder HD to the external HD.
I was thinking I could now download one in particular to my computer HD (Acer XC-240 Win 10 Desktop).
I plugged the Ext HD into the computer and the PC does not recognise it. The device list shows it is there but the computer will not recognise it.
Did the formatting by the Recorder for TV/Recorder use, remove the PC recognition format?
If so, how do I get my WD External HD to be recognised on my Acer XC-230 Desktop - again?
It's not showstopping if it doesn't work the way I thought it would, but a very interesting exercise if I can get it to work in both places.
