Windows xp will not recognize gsa-e10l

xp will not recognize the drive, device manager blinks on and off when device is plugged in, tried uninstalling all usb entries in device manager, tried turning off power management, tried all usb ports…other devices work fine in all ports…drive works fine on an older win2000 box…anyone ever seen this behavior before and is there a workaround? Feedback here much appreciated!
