I have a 500Gig WD h/d and a NextStar 3 usb enclosure and a problem

*I can only format when the drive is attached as an IDE device. I then
attach it to the usb and and works great...I copy files into it then after I
turn the computer off and hte usb drive off

*I then turn the computer aon and the usb HD on and it won't read my drive
anymore. It gives me an I/O error when I try to access it and I can't
format it as an USB drive. jumper is set to master as what it should be.

DISK MANAGEMENT says its status is healthy and partition is basic but shows
nothing as FILE SYSTEM.

If I do this procedure again it will work then samething will happen again.
I tried fron and back usb connectors.

Should I try an external powered usb hub or try changing from usb 2.0 to
usb 1.1 in the bios?

I set my usb device in the bios to 1.1 and now it works. I can format it
and unplug ang plug the usb cable back in and restart my computer and it
works. I then reset my bios usb device to 1.1+2.0 setting and rebooted then
device came back up and worked. I then unmounted and tried to remount the
drive under the 2.0 setting and it wouldn't work again. This time I went
back to 1.1 in the bios and rebooted and it came back up and worked. I want
this deive to work permanently in 2.0. The question is, is it getting
different power requirements under 1.1 then 2.0? Would a powered usb hub
work better if it was plugged into a usb @ 2.0 setting in the bios?

Nope.

You could try updating the motherboard bios, sounds like a wart in that.

Probably not, sounds like a wart in the motherboard bios.

well its deffinently a M/B problem. Even my flash drive wldn't wrk under
USB 2.0 and the powered hub didn't make a difference. My printer and
logitech cam are not affected by it. I think I will have to get a PCI USB
2.0 card.

Just a reminder to get the latest motherboard drivers, in case that
hasn't been mentioned.
