Just bought an 80 gb USB hard drive from Amazon. Plugged it in to 1.1 USB port but is not recognised - no show at all. Supposed to work just by plugging in. I get the usual "this would work faster in a USB 2.0 port" but that's all. Tried everything on the cd but nothing helps. I get a green light on the drive and some vibrations that come in waves like its trying to load - like when you first put a dvd in the computer drive. Also tried plugging in the 2nd cable to give more power but thsi does not help either.
Am I doing something wrong? Any suggestions?
