    I bougth a external hard disk to use as backup. A Maxwel external desktop
    hard drive 640 GB with USB 2.0.
    When I connect the disk it doesnt recognize the USB device. As diagnostic
    with the USB port I get = "Dit apparaat start niet (code 10)" (This device
    doesnt start). (There is a green licht burning on the device)
    The driver is C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\USBSTOR.SYS5.1.2600.0 (on a XP
    platform)

    To check where the fault is, I brougth the harddisk to a friend with a XP PC
    and tried the harddisc here. It worked on my friends PC without a problem,
    it has to be some problem on my PC and not the device. The memory USB sticks
    give no problem.

    Any idea how I can find out? or what it cab be?

    Greetings,

    Marc
