Quick USB/ Drive question

Hi
I have a quiick question on a USB device. My WinXP has suddenly decided not to recognise an external 1TB USB drive(WD). Hardware manager is o.k., cable is o.k., it just won't show on exploer. It recognises all other devices (USB stcks) etc., problem is only with ext. hard drive (which has no problem in my other XP machine). Do I need a new USB card?

    Hi I assumed because my usb extension leads worked with all other external devices that they were o.k.They're not. External disk with original lead straight to computer and it springs to life in explorer. Sorry.
  2. You need a new USB Hub.
