You need to post the exact error message.

when i open a folder on the usb hdd i get the message :

windows host process (rundll32) has stopped working

then windows explorer stops working

then internet explorer stops working

i have looked at the manual and it says it is a windows xp/2000 compatible device so i thought i might download a driver update, (my laptop is vista) but their support centre is useless...any ideas please?

ps. the device used to work with this same laptop without this problem)

thanks
