Hi guys,

I am still running win 2K (yeah I know update!) but when I try to use a USB removeable media storage device (Imation) it flashes once then is not identified. I have the usual drives, c, d (dvd), e (cdr-w) on the system and not sure if I need to reassign them or what? I have installed all the ms service pak stuff and this is supposed to be PnP. Odd though is that the USB works perfectly with my Canon digital camera.

Thoughts? Could it be in the bios? Or should I just bite the bullet and buy another system?

Yep I was wondering if I should add partition a drive. This computer has assigned A:, C:, D:, E: to other devices and maybe I should add an F: or something and not assign a device to it? I have noticed that the comps that do work with these devices generally do not assign anything to the E: and when the device is attached it opens up and shows "removeable media"? Sure could use an expert opinion...and a quick refresher on now to partition the drive correctly!

Thanks
