    Hello, can anyone help me with these:

    I have bought new Verbatim Store N Go external hard drive (500 GB) for my HP laptop, which only supports USB 2.0.

    Windows XP PS3 cannot recognize the device, once connected with 2.0 USB. If I try to connect it at friends laptop, it works instantly in 3.0 hub but also doesnt work with the 2.0 hub on the same computer, which runs Vista (it says USB device is not recognized)

    I have followed the recomendations about disabling infcache.1 in c:\windows\inf\, still no success.

    Thanks for any useful advice.
