Re: wont show at all (E drive ) when i go to my computer


Possibly 2 reasons:
1. A tweaking utility (such as TweakUI) was used to remove drive letter assignment.  You need to use the same utility to restore it back;
2. USB port error which could either be software or hardware:
2.1 Software - try uninstalling all instances of the USB in your Device Manager, reboot. Windows will autodetect and auto reinstall;
2.2 Hardware - the port(s) could be faulty which could either be the +5V supply (which would mean a burnt surface mounted fuse or fusible link) or the I/O where the data pins go to.

If you have other USB devices and they work, then chances are it's #1; if they also do not work then it's #2

Hope this be of some help. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Just to make sure, try connecting it into another computer (but not in Radio Shack), if the device gets detected by another computer, then you need to try enabling the USB Legacy Support of your computer.

But if the other computer does not detect it, then you need to take it back to Radio Shack and verify with them if there's any additional driver or firmware upgrade that would help you to detect the SanDisk.

Have a good day!

Mecer wont load wi xp sp2 on 160gig hardrive


The BIOS is seeing the drive but your computer can only see about 120-130 GB of harddrive. If the drive has a pin option to limit it's size you may be able to limit it then install windows but if it doesn't you're back to looking for a smaller drive.

Hope this helps
