    Do you have other USB devices that work?

    Also, do you have the Windows service packs installed?

    Another item, if the drive is USB 2.0 and your motherboard has USB 1.0, you will need different drivers.

    Hi AcaCandy

    Thanks for the replies :)

    Other usb devices do work.
    I'm not sure about the motherboard though. Its a Dell D600 Laptop with Windows XP servoce Pack 1 (fairly new pc).

    It says that drivers for the USB Mass Storage device are not installed. An Iomega article says that XP has the drivers but it doesnt find them.

    I'll keep trying.
