Hi guys, hoping someone may have some ideas on this.
I'll get the BIOS and it reports the drive correctly. During Windows XP x64 boot, the drive fails and stops responding as if not powered. Once in Windows obviously it continues not to work and Device Manager does not see the drive.
However, if I keep inserting/ejecting the drive, Windows <i>will</i> detect the drive and once booted, it continues to work. It did the same with Windows Vista x86 and x64 (Build 5112). So looks like hardware.
