    Unhappy HELP: trouble installing iomega 120GB ext HDD

    When I plug in the drive into any USB port (which have been verified working as they've been used with other devices), the following happens:

    Window pops up:
    "Found New Hardware
    Unknown device"

    Then,
    "Found New Hardware Wizard

    Completing the Found New Hardware Wizard

    USB

    An error occurred during the installation of this device

    The installation failed because a function driver was not specified for this device instance."

    Any ideas? My Win2k system just refuses to detect its presence.

    Hmm. Thanks guys.

    I've tried searching iomega's site, but can't seem to find any drivers for the product. In fact, it says in its documentation that Win2k/XP no need drivers. And all the tech support people seem to tell me is un-plug and re-boot and try another port.

    Must go think summore...

    What should I do if my Iomega USB Hard Drive is not assigned a drive letter or is not detected in Windows 2000?

    dunno if this helps
