But no USB drive I have at the office (we have dozens) needed a driver from its maker.
It is true a few machines needed USB drivers from the machine makers but your story is incomplete.
Seagate now owns Maxtor and I can't find any support on their website to download the driver I need to get my External HD up and running. I backed up all my critical files there and can't do anything until I get the drivers. Does anybody have a link with the drivers location.
