I just did a clean install after having my desktop massively infected. Prior to the infection the WD Passport drive would be recognized by the system right off, without any problems.
After the reinstallation the drive goes through several cycles of detecting/loosing until I get a message stating the drive is a hi speed storage device, capable of running off an available 2.0 USB Hub slot. However, the drive is plugged into the hub slot. It is like the system is detecting the drive running off the motherboard's USB port slots instead of the USB Hub Port's slots.
I am running a Soyo 4x400 Ultra motherboard, and an Audigy 2 Premium Ex sound card with the additional 4 port USB Hub.
I have installed the drivers, and let the driver update wizard search Microsoft for any updated drivers. The Passport portable drive still isn't detected at USB 2.0 speed ON the Audigy USB Port Hub. The drive works fine on my laptop (no additional hub ports), and as I stated, the drive did work before I was forced to reinstall XP. The system is running XPSP2 (I'm not doing SP3, at least for now - it trashed the system once, forcing another clean install in the middle of a clean install).
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
