I have brought an external hardrive but I would like to install programs on it so when i go to a friends house and use there computer i can connect the hardrive to there computer and use the program is this possible and how do i do it?
It wont be possible for many in fact nearly all programs as when they are installed they put important registory files on to your main hard drive and therefore you need to be using the external hard drive as your main and then when you bring it to a friends house you will need to make it as primary drive in his pc for the programs to work.
But im sure there is a way (a hard way) to do so and i wish u gud luck in finding it as i would also like to do this but so far the programs never work.
i think you are using SCSI HDD, if you have SCSI hdd you must install driver...
or other ordinary hdd you dont need to install drivers...
i think your problem may by the partitions.. if you using later NTFS 5 partitions the system will not take if it have 98 or NT
safe is format using FAT of FAT32
