HP PC not seeing external hard drives correctly

HP Recommended
Prodesk 405 G4

Just trying to get my hard drives hooked up to my PC but having a whole load of issues.


Maybe I start with the most basic problem of all? This is that I have a portable HDD that hooks up just fine with my laptop but not with my desktop PC. On the laptop, it just shows me the folders and files, no problems. On the desktop PC, it asks me to insert a disk into drive V. 


The other problems include drives showing up correctly on my "toaster" HDD dock but not on my Terramaster JBOD.


Any ideas? 


Also, I'm keen to switch out the 256Gb operating system boot SSD for a 1Tb SSD that I have, but don't know how. I can clone the current boot SSD but probably need to change BIOS or similar?


Many thanks
