Hi all,

I'm trying to connect my WD 1TB Elements external hard drive to my laptop. It used to work perfectly, but since I have changed my internal hard drive to an SSD hard drive, I am not able to connect the external hard drive anymore.
Some FACTS:
1.) the external hard drive is working on 3 other PCs (having either windows 7 or windows 8), sot that one is definitely NOT broken
2.) the USBs on my laptop are all working fine, can connect other external hard drives, pen drives, etc.

But; if I connect this particular external hard drive to the laptop, nothing happens. The light on the hard drive goes on and the drive seems to start working but my PC does nothing, doesn't recognise anything (no beep or so) nothing shows up in device or diskmanagement.

Any suggestions?
