    Hello there!
    This is my first post on these forums and just wondered if I could borrow some of your expertise?

    I recently bought a 250gb "essential" external hard drive by western digital. Well it is supposed to provide the means to install via plug and play but when I do connect it to my PC or laptop neither of them recognise the device.

    My windows updates are completely up to date, and I can't find anywhere to attain the xp drivers required for this hardware. Has anyone got any ideas?

    Kind Regards,
