    Ok I have a WD 250GB external hard drive, it detects it but it doesn't show up on my computer. Any ideas?

    it probably needs to be formatted

    right click on computer > manage > disk management

    Could be a conflicting drive letter ... probably the format issue though.

    Rescan disks, assign drive letter.

    What does the computer management/storage say about that volume?
