PnP Driver Not Found
I've bought myself a Seagate 320GB External HDD (USB 2.0 - 8MB cache if
relevent) which i've plugged into my computer. It's supposed to just plug
and go, however the machine is throwing up a window saying "WINDOWS NEEDS TO
INSTALL DRIVER SOFTWARE FOR YOUR SEAGATE EXTERNAL DRIVE".

Of course, the drive didn't come supplied with a CD as Seagate said it
should plug and play. Eventually it says it cannot find the drivers and
throws up the following failure reason :

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name:PnPDriverNotFound
Architecture: x86
Hardware Id: USB\VID_0BC2&PID_0503&REV_0300
OS Version: 6.0.6000.2.0.0.768.3
Locale ID: 2057

Does anyone know of a cure so I don't have to return it.

Thanks in advance

RE: PnP Driver Not Found
First off, go to the website who manufactured your mother board. When you
get there, go to downloads, etc and see if you can find a driver for USB 2.0.
I've got an older Asus P4SD-LA motherboard, 2.3 GB Memory, 120GB external
SimpleTech, 500GB external Seagate, and another WD 160GB external. Everytime
I plug into a USB 2.0 port, my computer signifies with a sound, then the
drive is recognized. My only problem is Vista recognizing my second internal
drive. It shows it in Disk Manager, but I can't get it to display. That's
where my music is. I'll have to get an external box and move the drive, I've
had three replies about this, but nothing helps. XP Pro is a hell of a lot
more convenient, but Vista is faster and has more features.
