[Solved] Problem with opening Pocket Pro as removable drive in Windows 7 x64
I just got my PP but after about 6 attempts so far, I still cannot access the device's storage when I have it connected to my PC. Half the time Windows tells me it performed a "failed operation". Once it's told me it that the USB connection to the device failed. And every time I double-click the removable disk in My Computer, my system hangs as it tries to read from the device and then gives me the message "Please insert a disk". After like 10 minutes, it'll give me some fail message or I give up and yank the USB cable.
I assume this is not normal? Are there known issues with Windows 7 64 bit?
Edit: Great...now Windows tells me I need to format the device before I can use it. Starting to feel like one of my former bad USB flash drives.
Edit 2: Looks like it finally worked after 15 tries. I switched to the included cable (was using a old cable) and switch USB ports. *big sigh of relief*
Still reading dead tree books?
Make the switch to a new Astak Pocket Pro
