Issue #2 Not really related to #1. When I plug the same drive into my desktop (Win XP Pro), I get the little "Remove Hardware" icon in the tray, but that's all. I can't do anything with the icon, and the drive does not appear in My Computer. Everest can see the drive, however. Recently (I need to try it again, though) the computer would just freeze when I plug it in, and I'd have to hard re-start. I need to try it again because I was messing with the BIOS, too (I got that sorted out). I really need the drive to work on the desktop because I use it a lot for school. Anyone know how I can get it working here?
EDIT: I tried it again, and the only difference is it didn't freeze the computer, just Media Player when I had it look for devices to sync to. I took the drive out, and the icon is still in the tray. I think it'll crash-ish when I go to shut it down...
EDIT 2: It also can't open Media Player anymore, probably until I re-start, which I'll do now. Media player appears in the running processes list, but I can't end it.
EDIT 3: After the re-boot, everything works fine again. It froze while I was doing something in Trilian, so I had to use the reset button.
EDIT 4: I did a full system repair on both computers, and the problem is the same.
