That's all all we know about the XP machine. THE MOST COMMON REASON I FIND is...
XP (the one without the patches) can only see up to 127 or so GB Volumes. Documented at many places including
It could be you don't run XP but something else?
I have recently bought a Maxel Tank h500 external hard drive, which came with an eSATA connection as well as a USB lead. Unfortunately my PC (WinXP) does not sport an eSATA input, and so I obtained an eSATA-to-USB adaptor.. I was able to successfully connect the device to my wife's laptop (Win7) in this way, and have transferred some data to the Maxel Drive.
However when I link Maxel to my PC the system acknowledges that there is a Removable Storage device there, but is unable to find the disk or it's contents, and asks me to put a disk into the device!
Can anyone explain what is likely to be the problem here and how I can get to "see" the contents of the new drive, and make use of the device?
