SOURCE: I require a driver for our Beyond micro external hard drive.

I'm pretty sure that XP should pick up your external USB hard drive with relative aplomb unless:

1. The drive is USB 2.0 and your USB ports are 1.0 or 1.1 (and even then it should work, albeit at reduced performance)

or

2. Your drive is drawing too much power from the USB hub, causing an error condition.

Try plugging it into a different USB port.

I got one with the same problem. I opened up the case and hooked up the hard drive to a generic usb to sata adapter that i picked up on ebay and it works fine now if a bit clunky looking.

What voltage is required for the power inlet port or is the USB cable enough?


The 2.5 inch external drive (laptop drive) does not require separate power supply because USB cable can supply enough power for this drive. The 3.5 inch external drive (desktop hard drive) requires separate power supply and it depends on the model.
