Western Digital External Hard Drive incompatibility with Microsoft Updates on Dell XPS Vista RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Dell XPS running Vista and am using an external Western DIgital hard drive.  Recently the USB & media card readers started disappearing after using the Western Digital hard drive. 

    A Dell tech came out and installed a new media card reader.  When I explained what was happening he stated that a Microsoft update must be incompatable with something on the WD hard drive, causing it to wipe out the USB ports.

    Has anyone ever experienced this and know of a work around?
