External HDD enclosure with Vista RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've got an IBM ThinkPad T61p notebook with Vista Ultimate on it. I've got an external USB HDD enclosure that I use for backups. It's got a 750GB Seagate HDD in it. If I connect the drive after a reboot, it detects the drive and I can use it, but when I disconnect it and reconnect, it does not get detected. I have to reboot before it would work again. Sleep, Hibernate or using other USB port does not work to solve it, just a reboot.

    It used to work fine on my Toshiba with XP Pro.

    I'm not sure if it is a hardware problem or Vista related. I don't have this problem with USB flash drives.
