Question about Hard Drives
I bought a new Seagate ST9120822A 2.5" 120GB hard disk, with Zippys external USB casing. When I connected to my usb port, it says "A high speed USB device is plugged into a non-HI-SPEED usb hub."
Then the disk is not shown in the disks list in explorer.
I am using Windows XP.
I know this is an old thread, however if it helps any one try this:
Zippys power supply failed for me also. The problem here is your case support USB 2.0 ("A high speed USB device") and your port is only USB 1.1 ("plugged into a non-HI-SPEED usb hub"). This will not give adequate power to the drive. So use a y-cable (http://www.toshibadirect.com/images/ui3/accessories/toshiba-usb-y-cable-ba82010-300.gif) and connect one end to your casing and the two pins at the other end should be connected to two USB ports. (get it at http://www.toshibadirect.com/td/b2c/adet.to?poid=438342).
Another costlier way is to upgrade to USB 2.0 by a card like this http://www.belkin.com/support/download/download.asp?category=1&lang=1&mode=
or even better a USB 3.0 card : http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=lGYmelQ8mJvPtYTv

Well this might happen because your usb port is not supportin your hard disk so try and update ur usb hub and its software!! and see that ur hard disk is properly connected!!hope this solves ur problem!!
