    [guide] External Hard drives for XP and lower

    I know a lot of people who buy external hard drives and have Windows XP or lower and can't find the port to it. Like I made my port O: . I hope this will help you.

    Note: This is if your hardware manager auto installs your hard drive.



    Users on a Microsoft Network with mapped network drive letters may experience drive letter conflicts with this, or any other removable USB device. This occurs when you install a new device or volume, does not recognize the mapped network drive and assigns the next available drive letter to the new device or volume. This causes a collision with the existing mapped network. This issue has been noted by Microsoft here.
    To fix this issue:
    1.) Right-click My Computer, and then click Manage.
    2.) Under Computer Management (Local), click Disk Management.
    3.) In the list of drives in the right pane, right-click the new drive and then click Change Drive Letter and Path(s).
    4.) Click Change, and in the drop-down box, select a drive letter for the new drive that is not assigned to a mapped network drive.
    5.) Click OK, and then click OK again.

    Thanks. I didn't know if I should put it here. I figured people buy they for there servers when they got low memory. I bought one myself a while ago and had problems.
