Hey all,

I just picked up a SimpleTech black cherry 2.5" drive at BestBuy for a good deal; at least it seemed to be one until I tried it on my desktop.

The problem is I can't get the darn drive to work. I have an Antec 900 (sig rig below), and I'm unable to get the drive to read on my PC (Windows XP). I tried plugging both cables into the front ports on the Antec 900. I tried plugging 1 cable into the back and still have the same problem. When I plug the darn drive into my Windows Vista Ultimate laptop it works fine (with 1 plug in). What's up with that? Any ideas? I think it's a power issue, but has anyone had similar issues like this?

I wanted a large portable drive to put all my font works, textures, etc. Any help, advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm about to bring this thing back and try the slower WD passport.
