external USB hard drive not recognized

2015-12-29, 20:39 PM

Hi, I got an used w530 that has a copy of Linux on it.  Needless to say,  I am a win 7 guy.  Right now, if I plug a exteral usb drive in, it is not recognized and have error 10 when I look in control panal>system.  I tried it with USB thumb drive, regular external hard drive, or even a SD card from a camera.  All of them have not problem with my w520. My usb mouse and headset is working.  I re-install the usb 3.0 driver from Lenovo with the same result.  Do I have to reformat my drive or is there somthing wrong?  This is somewhat urgent.  Thanks in advance!

It is not working in safe mode either.  Needless to say!
