Where did it go?

By nlundy ·
When I plug in my USB Iomega Zip 100 drive into my Windows 2000 Pro I lose my secondary hard drive, (it still sees it) but wants to format it. Even if I then dis-connect the Zip drive (unplug) Win2000 still refuses to let me access the hard drive.Any ideas how I can have my cake (the zip drive) and eat it too (the hard drive)? Thanks in advance.

It sounds like USB is using an interrupt which is conflicting with the secondary master (or primary slave,as the case may be) hdd channel. To correct this, enter you CMOS setup utiltiy and try to change which interrupt USB is using.

If that isnot the problem, it is likely a USB compatibility issue with win2k. In this case, I recommend checking out http://www.microsoft.com/technet
