Usb external drive not getting detected

I have an old pc(pentium III 1.1 Ghz) 256 MB ram
intel 810e motherboard.
all usb devices are working fine.
however i bought a new WD external usb hard drive which is not at all getting detected.
The usb disk light is glown indicating that its recieved signal from system.
i tried with 'add new hardware ' section, but no use
also in bios i dont have option like 'enable usb 2.0'
any help would be highly appreciated

Re: usb external drive not getting detected

I dont think usb version2.0 was popular when pentium 3 was around, get a BIOS uprade for your board if you can,
failing that a more up to date board and chip, with windows xp will sort this problem out and it will run so much faster as well

Upgrading my 128 RAM of KOB 810e FST MB

Looking at the manual for this motherboard your maximum ram is 512mb in two sticks of 256mb each. Speed rating is pc133 (maximum). You may struggle with the external hard drive as you only seem to have usb 1.1 and not usb 2.0

Motherboard specification not available.

Are you uning the recovery CD or a new OS?

A new Os (XP) will allow the second drive even if the old one will not. Of course you can always add a USB hard drive and a USB PCI card to make it all work. What are you using this pc for seems a little old for todays applications. Suggestion If your going to use this that you Replace the main hard drive with a 120GB or larger, new video card at least 256MB if not 512 and at least 1 gig of memory as I believe it will only take a max of 1 gig. you cannot use vista as it requires more resources than this Pc can give to support the OS. you may want to try XP LITE as well one you get XP installed to speed it up a bit!

I have Intel 810e PIII 1 GHz 512 Mb Ram 20 GB HDD. OS Win ME I want to add secondary HDD. Which one should I preferr 80GB / 120GB / 160GB. and will install new OS say Win XP or linux in Secondary Hdd....

160gb - but ensure the bios is up to date and check the motherboard manual as that will or should explain about maximum capacity of hard drives but am sure it should be fine.

If it is not and does not detect all of it you can partition the partitions into smaller amounts ie 80 gb partitions each ?
