The drive is externally power and sucessfully operates
using it's USB 2.0 port, however it's very slow since the
only USB port I have internally on the laptop are USB 1.0.
I have now tested the card and the drive on another laptop
with Windows ME, the machine installs the unit, however I
can't access it because the that particular laptop has
it's hard disk formated to FAT32 whilst the external drive
is formated in NTFS.
Interesting enough my DELL has a FAT32 partion (DELL pre-
installed software I'm guessing) perhaps that why Windows
XP home is complaining, I may try to install WINDOWS XP
PRO as see what happens. It's not the PCMCIA card or the
drive is software or my laptops hardware
