Question about Western Digital Passport WDXML800UE (WDXML800UETE) 80 GB Hard Drive
I have just bought one of these drives. It works fine with my notebook(XP) at work, home with my PC (Vista) works too but it's thinking too much. I have to plug it than wait for about a minute just to open My Computer, than another minute to open my directories. When I first installed the drive to PC it didn't work at all. But in the morning I started PC with WD plugged it worked perfect. When I plug the WD while PC working makes more problems. Also there were other flash disks which did the same problem, working too slow and too slow copy rates. I thought that's a problem of front panel USB, other USB ports doesn't accept WD at all. Don't know what to do. I'm just starting my PC plugged with WD and only copying files and unplugg it. If it's plugged I cant even open My Computer in time. My mother board is ASRock. Also having problems with my front panel microphone and headphones, they are not working.
It sounds like you need to update the driver s for your your devices,
Did you format the drive/s before loading info on to the drive???me,
XP works well and Vista should tooo.....so I beleive your devices may need updating thanks
Let me know how it goes that before you rate Me thanks

The USB cable you are using is USb 1.1 and it will not give enough electricity to your WD.Or you may have disabled your USB ports by accident.The fornt ports of your computer won't give enough electricity to your WD again. See if your WD is vibrating.
