I’m in a big rut with my laptop. I have a Toshiba Satellite and, like others, the CD/DVD drive went on me. I bought a NEC 1210A USB external drive to have it fill in for that loss. However, I am running into a big problem.
I turn it on, it says Found New Hardware “USB 2.0 Storage Device” and then changes to “USB Mass Storage Device”. I only have USB 1.1 on my laptop (I will be upgrading via PCMCIA cardbus). Of course a message comes up that “the device can perform faster”. I ignore it and then I get an error that states that the hardware is working incorrectly. I cannot read the installation CD-ROM to start the installation in the first place. I just shelled out $100 and I’m really frustrated, can anyone help? Thank you for your time
