Good Morning Guys,

I posted my problem yesterday and had two responses from this Forum members. They asked questions that I replied but when I log on this morning I did not see my posting and the responses. I thought it is wise to post the problem again. My problem is this:
My firm has just acquired a Dell PowerEdge 6800 that we are configuring as a backup server. The server is running Windows 2003 Server. Our problem is that the server does not show the drives for large USBs External hard drives. We connected an 80GB FireLite and a 40GB LaCie USBs but none of them shows when you open My Computer. As soon as we connect these External drives, the computer shows that "New Hardware Found" and then "Installing Hardware" and then "Hardware is ready for use" but if you open My Computer you will not see the drives for these USBs. We tried starting the server with the USBs connected but it did not work. We tried connecting these USBs to two different servers,
one running Windows 2000 and the other Windows 2003 and they all worked. Please can anyone help us. Thanks so much. Adams.
