I recently upgraded by installing Windows 8 Pro x64. My external hard drives (both USB – Toshiba 500MB & WD 80 GB) worked fine with Windows 7, Windows 8 32-bit as well as Ubuntu. This is on an HP laptop with 8gb of memory and two internal hard drives.
The laptop recognizes the USB connection as I hear a sound when connected, but the drives cannot be found in My Computer or Disk Management. I looked on the HP web site and they do not have any updated drivers for this PC.
Where are my drives? Why is this happening?
