Am trying to instal the above external set-up which is basically a USB connection/mains PSU leading to standard EIDE & Power plugs [Unit supplied by Engineering Electronics Co Ltd.] My PC (W98SE) recognises the 'new hardware' and tries to instal - asks for driver CD but then is apparently unable to find some required file(s) although they are on the CD. If I try a manual instal (via Set Up) I at first get "copy file error" which, if clicked OK, changes to 'usb storage device installed completely' - it isn't. Any ideas please? Regards
woodchip - the new unit is an adaptor. It plugs into USB2 port on PC and into the mains and gives output sockets of standard EIDE data and power into whch can be plugged a hard disc, CD burner or any other similar hardware. Cheers.
Try this go into Device Manager and remove all USB and restart your computer. Let windows configure the USB other than for the adaptor that you have if it ask's for the windows disc, put the Driver disc in that you got with the hardware and browse to the driver folder on the CD
