I have a 2 TB My Book essential usb 3.0. When plugged into a usb 2.0 port it works fine with one notable exception; when I’m editing an image in Photoshop it will not let me save to it (My Book). It gives me a warning that the disk is full when there is plenty of room on it. I can read from it in Photoshop (7.0) but not save my work to it.
BTW running Windows XP Media
I just bought a USB 3.0 card and when I plug in my My Book it isn’t recognized at all. It makes the “Windows noise” but doesn’t show up. I checked both ports with usb drives and card readers so I know they work fine. When I plug it back into a usb 2.0, it shows up and works fine (of course with the exception listed above).
Any help would be appreciated and thanks in advance!
