Default My 10tb HDD's wont work with there a limit in tb?

Advertise Here

I got some 10tb Iron Wolf internal HDD's but they wont run with my computer with an external setup. For some reason they don't show up when plugged in. I get a beep, the HD's whirl, but never show up on the screen.

I tried 2 different hookups for external HDDs. I wonder if there is a limit in tb drive size the computer will run.

I have some HP slims desktop computers with Win 10 with 8RAM and 1 TB HDD. I also tried the Iron Wolf 10tb drives on a HP laptop with 16 RAM and no go. Drives do not show up. Tried 2 10tb drives and 2 different hookups. The hookups both work with a 2tb Barracuda drive and works with a DVD drive, but not the 10's. Any ideas?
