  mulva42 16:26 13 Nov 2003

I have tried to connect a extrenal Super Slim 2.5"40 gig Usb H/D.
But my O/S won't pick it up,I am running Windows 2000 Pro so i shouldn't need a driver,A driver's disk was included in the pack so i tried any-way but still won't work.the H/D is off a working System.
I have a 64Mb usb key which works fine in the pc.

Yes i understand about the power, My cable has a usb con and a serial con which i put into my keyboard,I am getting a Red light which means searching H/D and then goes Green which i belive is the power.

I too had a problem making W98SE recognise a 40Gb Amacom USB HD.

Phoned Amacom and their advice was to have Windows running first (USB HD powered up but NOT connected at the USB port)

"Hot Plug" in the USB connector. This woke Windows up at last - and it asked for the driver... etc....etc....etc. No more problems, it has worked ever since.
