Question about Samsung UHD25-40G (UHD2540G) 40 GB Hard Drive
I am using 2000 xp, i'm not supposed to need a driver. when i click the box, it says no drivers are installed. help!
Hi, I'm also of the opinion that in Windows XP, drivers for UHD25-40G are not needed. Also drivers found at http://www.samsungzirex.com/index03.asp more often than not are meant for Win98/SE. However, drivers for your motherboard's USB ports are needed. To confirm USB port are ok, right click on My Computer, go to Properties, click on Hardware, open your Device Manager and check the bottom entry which should say something like Universal Serial Bus controllers. Assuming they are there, there are a couple of things you can try: 1) try plugging your UHD25-40G on the other USB ports (normally there are four, 2 at the back sometimes more and 2 somewhere in front). If this doesn't work but all your other USB devices are detected, then it may be that the UHD25-40G is defective; 2) you can try reinstalling your USB driver from the CD that came with your motherboard or download it from the manufacturer's website (maybe update also); and 3) try the UHD25-40G in another computer (also running XP) and see if it is detected. What I am curious about is what "box" are you referring to when you wrote "..when i click the box, it says no drivers are installed." Hope this be of some help and please post how things turn up as well as the model of your motherboard. Regards.
