I recently bought some Lacie brick usb drives. I already have some of their porsches. They use a similar driver set. But their are conflicts and each installs a different icon on the sys tray.

It attached ok and files transfered to it ok. Then I tried formating and things went wrong. w98SE froze mid format. I uninstalled the drivers and only loadeded from the bricks cd. Problem gone.

I then re-installed from the porsches driver. They now stubbornly refuse to attach to the pc. I tried to force one of them using add hardware and then update driver in device manager. It didn't work, but something went wrong. When I turn it on the BSOD appears and I have to re-boot.

Fatal exception 0E @OO28:FF086280 VXD OUSB2HUB(01)+00004820

I uninstalled/reinstalled, deleted registry keys and drivers in device manager.

Someone suggested that I try the drivers on this site. I assume in case the current ones had been corrupted. I did. It still crashes. Now the brick is being finiky. w98 freezes during transfers.

What else can I try? I'm just going in circles and making things worse.

Do all the drives work ok on an XP or Vista machine?

I only have a 98 machine. All worked ok initially. Things went down hill when I tried to solve the formating problem.

I would suggest just using the generic drivers - don't have the Lacie ones installed at all. Try removing and recreating the partitions (Fdisk), then formatting the drives that are not working correctly.

If I do that the drives just sit there like stunned mullets and wont attach.

Before I try attaching again I'm trying to make the crashing go away.
