Hey, just having a few little issues with this so far, not sure if its the External HD or if its my older Motherboard but could be either.
Basically my problem is if i have my External HD plugged into my usb port when i try to start my computer it'll lock up when it gets to auto detecting. exact problem "Auto-Detecting USB mass storage device.. device 01:" then it just sits there ive left it there for 10 mins to see if was just running really slow or something.
After that didnt work i checked my bios boot order, its normal just my Internal HD, then Dvd Drive, then Floppy. I cant setup my USB drive cause if its plugged in when i try to go into bios it'll just freeze up at auto detect.
Ive been reading a few other posts it could be my motherboard i belive. Its a ASUS P5GPL.
Also this is proboly normal but if when i just leave it unplugged till system boots and all and plugged it in after, System will like lock up i cant open anything after about 5 mins it will load and it will be fine.
Im just looking for a solution where i dont have to wait 5minutes till i can do anything if i want stuff off my External HD.
Does anyone know of a fix to this problem??? thx in advance and Merryxmas
