Question about LaCie 500GB d2 Quadra 500 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
My LaCie d2 Quadra (500gb) worked fine on my old computer (and on half of the computers I plug it into) but it won't work on mine (or the other half of computers I plug it into).
The drive does appear in the Device Manager but with a yellow question mark beside it. The error message I get when I try to update the driver is this:
The hardware was not installed because the Wizard cannot find the necessary software.
That's the same message I got when I first plugged it in as well. I have read lots of forums. I understand most drives don't require drivers anymore, or there is some generic windows driver that might not be working. All of my other firewire drives work so something on my computer is working. I've tried different cables. I've tried USB 2. Same result.
I can't roll back the driver, and I've tried uninstalling the device and doing a FULL COLD restart. Same result.
Anymore ideas? Anyone know where I can download this phantom software?
Worst comes to worst I'll have to take this drive and another one to a computer that recognizes both and copy the files from one to the other hoping that the new one will be recognized by my computer but there should be a simpler way.
I'm running Windows XP Media Center addition and I have downloaded all updates including Service Pack 3. Dell XPS 600.
