I have owned this Fantom external drive for 2 yrs give or take. It has always been hooked up to a Windows XP Pro machine(several different ones). I have recently purchased a Acer Aspire L100 sporting an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual core model 5600 2.8 Gig Processor & 2 GB of DDR2 memory. It has Vista Home Premium installed as the OS(God, I hate this OD more each day). Vista will not recognize/install this drive. I have searched Microsoft's knowledgebase & the net for solutions to this dilemma to no avail. Fantom Drives has no help for me. I even called their support center. All I got from them was that I should make sure that my vista drivers were up to date. Can you help me with this at all? I really don't want to harvest the drive from this case & install it in another as I can't afford the outlay for the new case. Also, there are pleny of cases out there that claim to be Vista compatible but I don't trust their claims!
