having got my self one of these my cumputer does not want to know it is plugged in [XP Pro]
A dud drive?
Took it to my mate [Win2000] his machine welcomed it aboard and told us there was 499 Mb available.
Another Mate [98SE] knew it was there and asked for the driver.
Back home - Nothing. does not know it is there,
Unplugged all other devices from hub.
Still nothing.
Any ideas

Have you tried plugging it directly into the usb socket on your computer rather than via a hub....I remember having a similar problem in the past with a card reader.

Take it back to your friend and check the format type is the same as your computer. If it is not the same ( Fat32 or NTFS ) then reformat it to the same as your system. I have had a problem with my drive changing to the RAW system which is not supported by windows.

Thanx chaps
Cracked it
It did not like the hub or vickky verka
Anyway swapping some leads around so that it plugs direct cured it.
I now have to check that printer formerly plugged direct but now in the hub will work .
Ah me! All the pluggin troubles we have.
