Question about SmartDisk Crossfire Desktop (xf160f) 160 GB Hard Drive
My SmartDisk Crossfire Desktop 160 GB external Harddrive is not always recognized by win xp on a usb
Usually this is a problem with the usb port not being able to supply enough power to the drive. Often, units like this will come with two usb plugs on one cable to increase the current supplied to the drive. If the drive has an input for external power (some do, some don't), then using external power would help.
