I just bought a new puter, with Vista...:steamed: , and I tried to connect both an external hard drive, and an XD card in the slot. On both counts, the devices were recognized, drivers were load, and confirmed redy for use. I try to explore them, but they cannot be found. I have tried deleting them from the system list, and re-loading them a few times. I have tried formatting them on the new computer. nothing on all counts.


Any advice?:dunno:

Need more info. Is your XD slot a USB device connected to the computer?

Try just connecting the XD device first, use it to make sure it works, then connect your external HD. Maybe even reboot.

Hope that helps.
