I have a Sony Vaio desktop running XP SP2. I bought an Asus EEE PC in China with a Samsung 160 GB external HD. The HD appears to be real but I cannot find the model listed on the case on internet. I hate to open the case to read the HD since it is sealed.

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,
Ed

Thanks,

My problem is resolved.

I loaded all the updates from Sony for my PC. Even ones that didn't seem to apply to my problem.

Thanks,
