Try reinstalling the drivers for the PCMCIA card and get drivers for the external hard drive..if that doesn't work then get this here. Don't buy dell they have bad quality products.

I have a cardbus card 2.0 and it's recognizing my ipod but not my


You might check with your manufacture and make sure it's 2.0, I known some PC's to come with 1.02 REV2.

Also the best way to check a USB if its working check the following pins on the USB and grab a DMM and measure them.

- From PIN 1 to PIN 4 should measure 5.0V if it's working correctly.

Your problem is a power overload on the USB 2.0 card. If you plug in a 5volt power supply to the USB 2.0 PCM/CIA card, it will solve your problem. You can also use any USB port on your computer to plug in an A-A USB cable to power the PCM/CIA card and it should resolve the lockup. Also, check and make sure you have enough RAM memory in your comptuer for Windows XP. Recommend 512, but runs much better on 1024 (1 gig) of RAM.

Did i just get ripped off?


Did you install the latest drivers for this device? Download and install the latest dell drivers and firware for the cardbus controller. Make sure you are using dell drivers, not microsoft from windows update.
