M-Systems diskonchip 2000

Specs: Windows XP

Just as from the old discussion about the same item, I just discovered a "yellow flag" on the M-Systems Disk-on-Chip 2000. I also have an HP computer about 4-5 yrs. old, and use Windows XP. What I can find on-line is a description of his hardware and whether it is something inside my computer tower, or whether it is an "external device" which was installed, and I am not aware of what it is.

As far as I can remember, I only have 2, external devices installed, a Maxtor External Hard Drive and an HP CD Writer.

By the way, several months ago my computer "stopped" recognizing those 2 items. The Drive was only installed last fall, and the Writer was only stalled 4-5 mos. ago.

I talked to some men at a computer store yesterday, and they told me I probably need a "Full Diagnostic" at a cost of $70. But, they told me to check my "Device Manager" first. They told me to look for the "yellow flags." There were 2, but one went away. This one is still there.

Sorry. Typo. I meant to say I can't find a description of that item.

I had no problem finding information on that listing. Google is your friend. Look at the link below.

Are you using any OLD flash type USB drives?

I suggest you remove the listing in Device Manager and reboot. If it comes back you are still using hardware that uses Disk on Chip. Post back with results.

Concerning your issues with the external drives you listed. With the drives connected, look for them in Disk Management.

You should be running SP3 now.
edit, missed posting the link

DOC was bought out by I think sandisk. The drivers ought to be on their site still.
