External USB HDD RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 4 Western Digital My Book Essential Edition 250GB USB Drives.

    Right after I installed Vista Ultimate I connected my drives and they worked fine, but when I tried to reboot Vista Hangs in shutdown, and if I disconnect them the shutdown continues.
    If they are connected during boot Vista hangs there to, and when I disconnect them Vista starts normally.

    If I start up the computer without the HD's Vista cant find them if I connect more then 1 at a time, and Vista uses 4-5 mins in detecting the HD.

    Now if I connect all the drives and go into the Devicemanager and selects "Search for new hardare (or vas it PnP Devices)" it finds all my drives in under 10 sec.......

    I have tried the builtin drivers, Intel's and the Drivers from the MSI homepage. 
    Got a MSI P965 Platinum Mainboard

    Anyone seen this problem or know how to fix this?
