USB SATA Drive Not DetectedLocked
I have a Kingwin external USB SATA enclosure. I have consistently had trouble with XP seeing these drives after a system reboot. The Device Manager lists a “USB Device” under the Drives but the drive itself is missing. In addition, the drive doesn’t show up in the Disk Manager.
Cycling the power on the external drive will usually make it reappear, but is somewhat of a pain.
Anybody ever run into this issue? It only seems to be an issue with SATA enclosures…I don’t seem to have this problem with IDE drives.
