Western Digital USB 2.0 250GB external drive

  bazza11 19:58 13 Sep 2005

I have just bought this external drive and am trying to download the driver onto my laptop from the WD website, as I am running Windows 98SE. I have found the WD Essentials USB 2.0 driver and when I click the DOWNLOAD button a small screen appears with a blue line across the top and the words "File Download". However this box just flashes on and off all the time and locks up the computer. The only way to get rid of it is to switch the power off. I have enabled pop-ups as requested, and have also disabled Norton Antivirus 2005. I have no firewall. I have tried a number of times without success. Can you please help? Many thanks.

I have just downloaded it without problems, aristo, if you wish I can email it to you, it's a 2MB zip file.

I have sent the drivers to your Hotmail address, aristo, haven't you received them yet?
