Lacie Porsche drives in my experience or infamous for not having the most durable bridge boards. The bridge board is a chip that has a chipset on it which take the SATA or PATA connection and send it to the USB and or Firewire ports on the enclosure. If the drive is powered up, you should get a small red or orange light on the front. When connected to either mac or pc ( porsches are MS_DOS formatted out the box ), if it does not mount or does not appear in DISK UTILTY, then it is a high probability that the enclosure/bridge board has failed and the drive ( if not making grinding, buzzing, clicking or beeping sounds) will have to be extracted and placed into a more stable enclosure. Hope this helps.

Hi, A couple of things you can try: 1. In your Device Manager, un-install all USB instances then reboot. Win XP will auto detect and auto install back the USB drivers; 2. On reboot, again in your Device Manager, all instances of USB Root HUB, right click, click on Properties, Power Management tab, un-check "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power." 3. Download, install and use to format flash drives the HP Drive Key Boot Utility (cp006049.exe) available at http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/23839.html If for some reason none of the above will for you, you may need to install an external/powered multi-port USB 2.0 Hub. Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

I have many thumb (flash) drives,...all of which has asked for a format on at least one accasion...to save them I've always used partitioning software to re-write the partiton...which has made the drives re-usable after every fatal occasion....I strongly suggest constantly backing them up...but if the flash drive ever states that you must format it....grab the partitioning software,,,partition it...and then enjoy it for a few more months before you're required to do it again...
