have you visted the Seagate/Maxstor web site and checked their support site for your model of storage device to see if there are updated USB drivers for Vista?

only maxtor usb device is not working or all USB Devices. if all then you have to start the service in local group policies

Would you mind being a little bit more explicit about which service please, and also what you mean by local group policies - I can't find this in my Vista Home Premium system. Thank you
