Soyo Cigar HD20 Does Not Work in Windows 2000 Pro

Any ideas on why my new Cigar HD20 won't work in a Win2k Pro PC but it does work in an XP Home PC. I get a message that some driver function is not working.

Windows XP has built-in support for lots of USB devices, W2K doesn't. I went to the Soyo download site and it appears that your device has been discontinued, however, they do have driver downloads for Windows 98. I?ve had limited success with using W98 drivers in W2K but be prepared for odd behavior. Here is the link for the download: Good luck and please don?t forget to rate this post.

There are some things that you can try. Look and see if Vista drivers work. Also if you are using the more advanced versions of windows 7, you can use XP mode in the windows 7 environment and see if you can install the drivers for it.

Need to install it

click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll through all of your devices

if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark ? ! or a red X you will need to update the drivers for this device right click select update driver/reinstall driver

if you can see your usb device but its not working scroll to Ports(Com&Ltd) right click to update driver

if you computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it

or you might have to download them

rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours

it might take some time being a freeware driver solution

Yes, the external floppy drive must be connected directly to a USB port on the computer instead of to a USB hub.The PC can't see the drive thru the USB hub. Applies to both 32 and 64 bit.

Desperate to retrieve files from a failed unit...

Lucy fox, Sorry for the late response, I was poking around history and found your posting. If you?re still around and these files are important your best bet at recover is trying a professional data recovery service. They are expensive but they will probably be able to retrieve you data. I?ve used Ontrack recovery before with good results: Hope things work out well.
