the HDD in question is Transcend StoreJet 500 GB (USB 2.0/3.0)

on win 7 (sp1) when plugged in to USB 2 slot, works at once, OS detects it via generic driver and all is fine

 

but same HDD on again USB slot 2, but on win XP SP3, **** thing won't even get detected

the device starts to do "beep, beep, beep, beep", nothing gets loaded/detected by OS, no response

 

any idea why ?

 

I tried to find some drivers for XP online but no success

These drivers you tried to find, were they for your USB controller?

dunno, I just typed in device name and "XP driver" into google  :P

 

there is one "flash" program (for HDD) on the transcend site, but it says it DOES NOT work on USB 2 machines

and also HDD contains sensitive valuable data and I don't want to do flashing of anything

 

just something that will make XP reckognize it

Preface: After connecting the drive to the PC, reboot and go in the BIOS. See if the drive is detected there.

 

Regarding Windows XP:

 

You can try updating the USB controller drivers, although it looks like Abit's newest is only in the nForce chipset package and it is from 2004. There may be newer drivers available on driverpacks. Also I note this board has 2 onboard ports and 4 from 2 header blocks. Have you tried all ports?
