In Reply to: Disk Write Error For Maxtor 3000LE USB 2.0 Eternal Hard Drive posted by GLB on 05/26/02 at 3:02 PM:
Funny...I don't see the NEC "Enhanced" USB Host controller there. You need that.
Are you powering the cardbus adapter? It needs juice.
Open System Information (MSINFO32.EXE) and navigate to Hardware Resources > IRQs. Click anywhere in the right pane and then press CTRL-A and then CTRL-C. You have copied that data to the clipboard. Paste that data in a reply here.
: Unable to install Maxtor Drive until a tech worked with me and we got it to install on the laptop's USB 1.1 port, but not the new I/O Gear USB 2.0 - we thought it defective or incompatible.
: Purchased a BusLink USB 2.0 card bus. It installed fine. So here is where I am now:
: 1. My Logitech USBMouse works fine on the BusLink USB 2.0 card bus (I never thought to try it with the I/O card bus).
: 2. My Maxtor 3000LE USB 2.0 Hard drive does not work on the BusLink USB 2.0 card bus - I get a Disk Write Error:"Unable to Write to Disk" which I also got with the I/O card bus.
: 3. The Maxtor 3000LE works fine using the laptop's USB 1.1 port.
