I have just taken delivery of my brand new Sony DRX500UL. Hooked it up to the Sony laptop through i.Link (6pin to 4pin cable) expecting it to work first time. Needless to say it didn't. The laptop recognises that I have attached something to the iLink port as the IE1394 host controller is installed but in the CD/DVD section of device manager i just get 'Sony iLINK DRIVE IE1394 SBP2 Device' with an exclamation mark on the icon. On further examination of this it appears that the 'device will not start Error 10' which sounds like its expecting a driver. The device will stay there for a while and then dissapear. Never to be seen again until I reboot or power up the drive. I'm now on day 4 of trying to get this drive to be recognised by XP. I have exhausted all avenues with Sony storage and laptop support and Microsoft were not entirely helpful. Can anyone please put me out of my misery. Details of setup are: Sony DRX500UL Sony Vaio Laptop PCG-GRX560P Windows XP Service Pack 1 Worthy of note, in the system event log SBP2PORT.SYS keeps reporting an error 'Driver detected an internal error in its data structures for .' and that is it. The timing of these errors coincides when the SBP2 drive dissapears.
