greetings and i hope someone can help.
i just got a mybook essentials 2TB external HD (no smartware software on this model) this is a usb2 drive and i plugged it in and under management quickly formatted the drive as NTFS which was assigned letter F. i’m running windows XP pro.
the drive appears in my device manager.
however, when i plug it into my usb and boot up the boot up sequence stops at:
Auto detecting USB mass storage device Device #01:
it just stops and won’t go any further.
if i unplug the 2TB external drive an reboot it will boot up fine. i have an existing mybook 500GB drive and it mounts fine…
no go on the new 2TB…
does anybody have a clue as to what might be the problem? and how to solve it?
much thanks if anyone can help or direct me to a link that may illuminate this particular issue.
