I have a 250GB Buffalo Turbo USB Hardrive. Until today it was working fine. Now suddenly it says USB Driver not recognized. Whats the problem?


Try to insert it to the other usb ports and see if it works fine. If it doesn't, then probably there is a problem with it. But try to insert other usb devices in the usb ports of your computer, if it does'nt recognize also then the problem is in your usb ports.

Restart XP and connect e/hd and it should pick it up. Some systems are plain lazy after a while, so manually install it.

System restore isnt working now


not supposed to do another system restore. You are basically re-installing USB devices one by one again so the devices dont have conflict. Be sure to install the driver for the drive first before plugging it in.

USB Connection Issues


Cat this is your earlier problem reworded - I can see now that this is a dual device. If you can use it that way in Firewire mode leave it at that. However - is it possible that this is a 'switchable mode device and you have not discovered the secret of how to. If there is anything like a manual with this check it thoroughly or get into the makers tech support team

USB Connection Problems


You say have a SanMax HD-338-CB USB/Firewire External HD with a 160MB drive. You then say sometimes I have to reboot Windows XP pro 2 or 3 time before I see the drive using a USB 2.0 connection. Fire wire is a different system with a different connector style- so it should not be in a USB port or a USB connector should not be in a Firewire device. Get you device and connections sorted The desktop display simply puts up a device it will not differentiate which USB or Firewire
