Question about BafoTech 1 Bay BAFO BF-2010 Storage Cabinet
Hi, I just bought a pcmcia firewire just for my BF 2010. I tested BF2010 with my 60gb Maxtor in firewire and it looks fine. The problem comes when I tried my 160gb Maxtor drive, it does not repond. The disk was detected as it appears in the systemtray but in "My Computer" nothing added. Does this product supports 160gb hds?
I just tried the FireWire ports (not USB as before). WinXP (sp3) picked the drive up in seconds, no driver required (VIA chipset in my 7 year old laptop w/FireWire port). However, mine is an 80gb drive. Transfer rate very fast compared to what USB 1.0 would be. Also finally found my OEM drivers... on the old drive I'm testing ;^D. Turns out the NT/XT driver is buggy for USB anyway. Finds then dismounts the USB connection intermittently. Very unreliable. New cable makes no diff. I would like to upload the driver and manual PDF for you but there is no option for either. The FireWire device is found in "Control Panel > System > Device Manager" reports the device as "SBP2 Compliant IEEE 1394 device". The driver is (2001) 5.1.2600.5512 version of "sbp2port.sys". See if you's shows up in similar fashion. If not, and you're sure the driver for the PCMCIA card driver is good (and the card itself is good), the best solution is to dust off your friendly local FireWire capable PC or drop in an old FireWire card in it for under $10 from your local PC shop's surplus box.
