Well I recently purchased a Freecom 1TB XS External hard drive. I used it on my desktop and it worked fine and i put some stuff on there. then I tried to use it on my laptop but I couldn't find it on my computer. So I went to Device Manager and the safety remove hardware button and it showed up there. I went to Computer Management and I clicked on Disk Management And it showed up as disk one. I tried to give it a letter but it wasn't initialized so i tried to initialize it but I got a cyclic redundancy check error.

Can somebody help me?

Is the drive self powered or USB powered? I'm thinking it might be USB powered and not getting enough power. Otherwise, it sounds like a problem with the laptop.
