At a cost of 200-something dollars I bought a new IBM Travelstar 120 GB portable harddisk to use with my laptop and desktop computers.
Apparently it causes a conflict:
After first using it on my laptop it wouldn't start up poperly anymore (desktop items would only show after I pressed the Escape button), it was extremely slow, and it had by itself switched to from the classic view to category view etc, etc. Lot's of weird things. After running the back up of my C: drive and re-installed it all was better, although still my Windows Explorer opens not with the Folders open on the left side but with the tasks panel.
However, when I tried to use the Travelstar on my desktop, the same problems (switching to a different view in XP etc) happened, but now also in my System Manager it recognises the disk, but in Explorer it doesn't show up so I can't use it there.
- What is the possible cause and solution for the conflict the Travelstar causes
- How can I make sure on my desktop computer that Windows Explorer recognises the Travelstar disk
Thanks and regards,
