I just purchased a Hitachi external hard drive to back up my PowerBook G4--Mac OS X v 10.5.8 (1.67 GHz PowerPC G4 processor).  The computer will not recognize the device.  I have reformatted it via another mac and it still will not be recognized.  It is plugged in via USP port and the device does light up but it never blinked.  I have gone to Finder and it is not listed.  I have go to Disk Utilities and it is not listed.  HELP!


I have tested the USP ports and other devices (flash drives, printers) work. 


Thank you.

Mac OS X (10.5.8)
