1)My Vaio will not recognize the Samsung external HD, but the Asus will.
2)The Asus has a 16 G SD memory card (Kingston) which works on the Asus but not on the Vaio.
It appears that my Vaio will not work with anything I bought in China, but the China stuff all works together. (I cannot find anything to help from the Sony web support site)
I reloaded the Asus with XP in English (I thought I reformatted the “C” drive first), but it still shows some things in Chinese (example: MS Media Player is in Chinese) so I must not have deleted everything like I thought I did. Could there be something in the BIOS?
Thank you for your help,
