Since my external (LACIE) hard drive crashed a while ago my laptop (Dell Inspiron, XP [Swedish laguage] SP2 Pentium 3 etc) can not recognise any of the units which I connect to it via a USB2 PC Card. Units connect as usual via the computers built-in USB 1.0 ports, though.
Thinking that the problem might be the PC Card, I bought a new one (of a different brand), but sadly that didn't change anything.
I also (re?)installed the USB drivers which came with the new card without result.
Yesterday I bought a new (WD passport usb-powered) hard drive and it really sucks not being able to use it properly.
Whereas it connects just fine via the USB1 port, when I try to connect it through the PC Card, Windows starts a program which asks if I want to connect to "Windows Update" in order to locate the right drivers (Which can't be found). I tried to find the drivers manually but didn't really no what to look for, (Should it be the USB drivers, or the drivers for the disk?).
The only thing that seem to be working properly is the USBs power supply.
Apprecite any help, thanks.
