delay write failure to usb hard drive

I recently purchased a 4.3gb laptop drive and a usb caddy for it. It loads fine, spins up fine, but when I write to it the problems start. I get an 'error 51', relating to paging. I found a solution in Microsoft that says I should get a hotfix. This I cannot seem to access as it says no support for this is offered. It is KB article 830051 at support microsoft. Can anyone help me??
It relates to my device not supporting cache commands.
I have a P3 500mhz Dell, running 392mb ram on W2K(SP4)
The usb drive is a Travelstar IBM-DKLA-24320, 4.03gb

thanks, but I already have SP4. It is apparently SP4 that causes the problem. If you look at the para under CAUSE in the kb, it says that the disk.sys is responsible. I want to get the hotfix mentioned but do not seem able to get to it.
Thanks for taking the time to reply.
