does the laptop have a usb port on it does it do the same thing if you plug it in directly
What type of laptop what type of external drive what type of docking port
I haven't tried a USB port directly on the laptop.
I can try that but that wouldn't work out for a long term solution for me.
The laptop is an older dell D600 with a Dell docking port meant for this laptop.
I am running windows XP with all updates.
The drive is a 500GB 2.5" drive in an external USB case (I bought the drive and case separately).
The case is a Transcend StoreJet 25 SATA.
