I have 2 external HDD's. one a "welland" enclosure. The other a Seagate GoFlex.
Both are identified faultlessly on my laptop (win7 Home Premium). But they just do not identify at all on my PC running win7 professional.
Other usb devices work fine!
I have googled this problem; tried advice about rebooting, registry entries (.inf),
checking/ unchecking things etc, so, in desparation, I turn to this forum for help.
Anyone else had this experience, and is there a fix?

Do they run by power as well? Or need it? Have they been formatted / anything on them?

Sounds like the USB port(s) you're using aren't providing enough power.
