I Cannot use Toshiba StorE steel 2.5" 640gb usb drive with SBS 2008 (x64) - when I plug it in it prompts for a driver.
I am using a Dell PowerEdge T310 - the hardware is not faulty and the bios and chipset have been updated with latest updates.

Toshiba do not provide drivers for this drive as it is supposed to be plug and play.
I know the drive is not defective as I can use it fine with a Windows 7 x64 laptop.

The same server was having trouble recognising my Kingston Datatraveler DT101 4gb memory stick and was also asking for a driver for this.

I understand the StorE is supposed to use a standard storage driver - how would I install this and where can I get it?

What filesytem format does your external drive use? If you want to try a little bit. Format the drive using different file system, or try a low level format to the usb stick.

The external drive has NTFS. The usb stick I know works with other servers I use and with my Windows 7 laptop - I am reluctant to reformat this as I know there are no problems with the stick.
