WinXP not recognizing my external HD
Ok, I bought a Seagate 300GB SATA hard drive and an external enclosure to use as supplemental storage for my laptop. The enclosure has a USB 2.0 connection, which runs into my USB 2.0 PCMCIA card on my laptop. I also have an external DVD burner running into the same card, and it works fine.
My problem is that when I have the external HDD plugged into the PCMCIA card, WinXP won't recognize it. It doesn't show up in Disk Management, but it DOES show up as "disk drive" in Device Manager. When I plug it into the USB 1.1 slots on the back of the laptop, the external HDD shows up perfectly fine (except being slow as hell).
Anybody have any clue as to the problem, or to what I can do? I'm feeling like my last resort is buying a new PCMCIA card and hoping that it was the problem.
