Hi, Im running XP without SP2.
Just bought a USB2/PCI card and a Maxtor 300G one touch external drive (USB2 connection and A/C powered). My Seagate 5G external drive is recognized (on the new USB) and runs markedly faster than it did on USB 1.1 but with that message, "high speed device plugged into non high speed..."
The Maxtor has not been assigned a drive letter. In Disk Management it shows up as Disk 1 Unknown 279.47 GB Not Initialized -- and Unallocated.
Do I initialize it? How do I get a drive letter?
I did run SP2 but the result was the same so I "ghosted" back to my original set up.
I did try PowerMax but it didn't solve the problem.
