My operating system is Win 2K. Mr problem is that I have Buslink external hard drive that in not being recognised by my desktop computer. It is USB connected. The software has been loaded and the computer at first recognises the HDD when it is first plugged in but fails to do so after a reboot. I have tried the drive on other computers all with success. They used Win 98 or XP.

Any suggestions I would be grateful.

An option would be to leave it unplugged when rebooting - then connect it when you are booted. Not ideal I know, but an option.

Thank you for replying,

I have tried your suggestion and what happened was:- Explorer did not find (access) the Buslink drive, so I left it on and rebooted. Again the same problem, an unidentified buslink – in Explorer. In Sytem Properties it was identified as a SCSI device and was highlighted with a “?” the explination “ Device cannot start ( code 10). I have also tried manually setting Resources within System Prperties. All, without success.

Again, Thanks for replying.
Yours, Ken Tumber
