  1. must be a problem with your usb port or whatever you use to connect the external drive....try re installing all the necessary drivers.

    if that does not work try to connect another drive (known to be working) to the same port, just to be fool proof
  2. I connected another working drive reloaded drivers restarted the server with the drive plugged in and out tried usb sticks and externals manual device add, device manager, bios settings, nothing shows up anywhere
  3. then i am afraid the ports are kaput....you would need to change them
  4. I think so too was hoping it wasn't thanks for your help I will put in a pci usb card and see if it works
  5. yeah....that is a good option.

    all the very best :)
