When I try to plug in my external hard drive to a Server 2003 installation, it doesn't pick it up. Instead it tells me in a balloon message that the USB Device is not recognized. Both the USB port and the external hard drive are both tested and working so I have no idea what could be wrong.

Try another USB Port.

I have the same thing with my old PC with the 1TB drive in front, but in the back it works good.

i remember this problem...

1. Go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management
2. Locate the Drive, by default you should see a blank on the "File System" and "Volume" with no drive letter
3. Right click select "Assign drive letter and paths" A new window shall pop up Click "Add", select
assign the following drive letter... whichever you wish, click "ok" ... "ok" and hopefully the new drive letter will appear!

maybe that will work, alternatively i'd say it was a drive/r issue

There are only two ports on this machine. And one's being used by the mouse. And I've already tested the port and it does work.

The external hard drive doesn't show up in the Disk Management. And the hard drive works with all the other computers I plug it in to.

Also i have solved my problem.

My external HD is an Mobile 2.5" one wich doesnt need power, just USB.
But my old computer doesnt generate enough power for it, so i plugged in a 5V power from my HP PDA.
And now it works perfect.

I tried that and it still gives me the message, "USB Device Not Recognized".
