Installing driver for Freecom network drive

  Channel 17:45 15 Apr 2009

I have a Freecom Classic SL Network drive, and my PC runs Windows XP.I've downloaded new drivers, but can't install them.I get the error message "There are mounted NDAS drives in the system.Unmount them first and try again." When I click on the NDAS administrator and try to unmount it, I get the message "The device 'Generic volume' cannot be stopped right now.Try stopping the device later."I've tried exiting the drive administrator, and turning the drive off, with no joy.I've also tried to install them via the Device Manager, but then get the message "the location--doesn't contain any device information files.Please enter another location--" I'm stumped.Ideas anyone?

Try switching off Recycle Bin, System Restore and Indexing for the drive. Any one or all of those can generate the device cannot be stopped message.
