I have an external 40 G Western Digital Hard drive, mounted in a ADS Micro Slot external case with it's own DC power. It is connected to my Dell Dimension 2400 via a USB 2.0 cable and port. With the upgrade to Windows XP Home SP#, the PC can no longer connect to the external hard drive. It says the drive is invalid and the PC can't find it. How can I fix this?
