Re: External Hard Drive (USB MassStorage Device missing?)
I had a similar problem with my Onetouch Drive - ie the OS saw the device but
wouldn't allocate a drive letter. I eventually found it was because I had a
password security option set on drive - so had to install maxtor secuirty
prog on a system with XP, attached the maxtor drive and turned off security.
Vista then saw the drive normally - I haven't had the nerve to switch the
password option back on!
