I have installed Windows 2003 SBS on a HP DL380 G3 server. I tried to attach my external 1 TB harddisk but the drive cannot recognized. After pluged in the drive several times I was able to access the drive for ONE time and was able to use it. After rebooting the server I tried again to connect many times but the drive was not available anymore.

The drive is not visible in the disk manager.

What I tried until now:
- check other external USB drive (other manufacturer) - not visible too
- boot server in safe mode and delete all USB drivers

Any idea?
