Soyo Cigar HD20 Does Not Work in Windows 2000 Pro

Any ideas on why my new Cigar HD20 won't work in a Win2k Pro PC but it does work in an XP Home PC. I get a message that some driver function is not working.

Windows XP has built-in support for lots of USB devices, W2K doesn't. I went to the Soyo download site and it appears that your device has been discontinued, however, they do have driver downloads for Windows 98. I?ve had limited success with using W98 drivers in W2K but be prepared for odd behavior. Here is the link for the download: Good luck and please don?t forget to rate this post.

I was given a Soyo Cigar HD20 20GB USB 2.0 External Hard Drive by my son. No directions came with it. How do I use it? When I plug it into the usb port, my screen shows that new hardware was detected, but...

Some devices where shipped out without being properly initialized at the factory. This causes Windows not to be able to recognize the device when first plugged in.

1 - Download the EZRecover Software from: ...

2 - Be sure your CigarUSB device is connected to the PC

3 - Unzip the file, and install the program.

4 - Run the program

5 - You'll notice that it will detect that it is a UsbFlashDisk, and it's disk size (256 mb, 128mb, etc.) That is your first indication that your device isn't broken. If it's not detected, then perhaps you'll be better off returning the device to where you bought it.

6 - Press the Recover button. It'll prompt a warning. Just go ahead. The lights (if visible) on your device will start blinking. That's your second indication your CigarUsb device is working.

7 - Once it finishes, remove your device and restart your PC

8 - Once it reboots, plug it back in. It'll start detecting it correctly and automatically configuring everything (in windows XP at least).

9 - Goto and find your CigarUsb model. Download the correct application tools software for it. (In my case, it's a Cigar2Pro - 256mb.).

10 - Install the software. It may ask you to reboot the PC. If it does, go ahead and do it.

11 - Once you reboot (if you where asked to), run the program: "USB Flash Drive Utility"

12 - It'll ask for a password. Just press OK

13 - You need to repartition your device. Press partition.

14 - Set how much memory you want for the secure partition (with password protection) and the standard one. In my case '0' for secured partition, 256mb for Standard. Press Start.

15 - Finally, you need to format your new partition(s). Press Format. Type in a label. Press Start.

Once it finishes, you can start using your device. You DON'T need to do this in every single computer you encounter. All this is only needed to be done the very FIRST time you use the device.

Sansa e 250 wont work with windows 2000!

Hello. I just bought my e250 last week and I am running Win2k. I was aware of its system requirement for Win XP, but I have been able to use the player successfully. I you set the player USB mode to MSC under Settings and make sure your window explorer is set to view hidden files and folders, you will have access to drop and drag music like normal files. I found other suggested at this Sandisk forum as well:

Desperate to retrieve files from a failed unit...

Lucy fox, Sorry for the late response, I was poking around history and found your posting. If you?re still around and these files are important your best bet at recover is trying a professional data recovery service. They are expensive but they will probably be able to retrieve you data. I?ve used Ontrack recovery before with good results: Hope things work out well.
