ME does not allocate external USB disk drive by Ron Kleingeld
My friend has purchased a 120GB external drive and when this is powered on and then plugged in on the USB port, Windows ME finds the new hardware and allocates a driver, but it does not go as far as to put it in My Computer as an available drive we can use. Anyone have any idea why this is?

Power problem?! by Dave
My desktop has suddenly decided, when switched on from cold, to switch itself off after about 2 secs. The time span is so short that I cannot, apparently, change into any other mode or boot from a floppy. Can anyone help me out with things to check or something? TIA
