    19teal93lx I'm only 5'8" and I have a small penis.

    Picked up a 500gig portable hd to back up photos/videos before my lappy shits the bed. I plug it in via USB but the laptop doesn't seem to recognize it. I know the USB drive is good because it recognizes my flash drive. The hd says it's compatible with USB 2.0 & 3.0 .. I'm thinking maybe my USB port is older, where can I check to see what it is?

    Nevermind. Google helped me out. Now if I could only figure out why it isn't recognizing it.

    Flash! Some say he once threw a microwave oven at a tramp

    What USB drive do you have?

    Does it show up in Disk Management?

    its most likely a firmware issue. if you know the manufacturer you can usually get a new firmware and flash the device to work (had to do it with my WD drive)

    idk what kind of USB is on the computer but I read after '01 everything was 2.0 so it's at least 2.0 because the laptop is only 5 or 6 years old.
    It showed up in Disk Management and I was fucking around with it but couldn't get it to do anything. I forget what error I kept getting.
    I returned it and bought a WD today and it's working so I'm happy.

    EDIT: Someone needs to get a username/password from BangBros again! Fill this sumbrch up!
