You should be able to do this. The driver for your second external storage device should create an E: drive.

If drive E: is not being created, check the external storage device supplier's web site to verify that you're running the most recent version of the driver. There may also be a Frequently Asked Questions list there that explains how to deal with this problem.

hi jim,

If you have more then one usb port on the pc, you need to install a driver for each port.

So remove the external device cable from the working usb port and insert it in the next usb port and the drivers should install for it.  Repeat for additional usb ports and your done !

If your computer has a built-in CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, it may be the E drive. That's my situation- the previous owner of my laptop partitioned the single hard drive, so I have two logical drives, C and D, though it's just one physical drive. Windows then assigned the CD-ROM as the E drive, so my USB storage device becomes active as the F drive. Since I use Win-98, I had to download a driver from the maker of the USB device before Windows recognized it.

IF it worked and then stopped, you may beed to get into the Device Manager and refresh.

When i shut down, hibernate, restart, what ever... my external (USB) hard drive gets lost, I need to refresh the list in Device manager and reset the SHAREs.

Observer11, what operating system and what type of external "drive" are you using? I use Lexar Jump Drives. I can start the computer without the Lexar plugged into the USB port, and then plug it in at any time. The operating system recognizes it within about 2 seconds. I can even "hot swap" one Lexar for another. I am running Win 98 on one PC, and Win 98 SE on the other. I've encountered no problems like what you described.
