    I have a Dell XPSP2 I'd like to plug in my Seagate FreeAgent Go USB to. The drive does not show on the system. When I goto Add Hardware Wizard it does show and says the device is working properly when plugged into the USB on motherboard. I recently received this unit from a friend and formated with factory install and installed updates, added Seagate st340810A as a slave a Compaq DVD-ROM and a generic USB 2.0 all from my old Presario. When I plug into the PCI USB 2.0 the unit finds an unrecognized device then something like, “...one of the devices...has malfunctioned...” and it's disconnected and I can unplug it. I've been using the FreeAgent on my MacOSX and might have deleted some XP software? Or maybe the USB PCI is bad, or most likely I don't have a clue how to use Windows and all this right click stuff.
