    I have the Abit BE7 (Non raid) board and I have been very happy with it, but
    I just can't figure this one out. It's been working since December, here how
    I configured. Promise Raid card (for mirror) , two WD 80GB hard drives, one
    CD and on CD-R on separate controllers, a standard 3.5 drive. I just picked
    a USB "key chain" drive (or flash drives) and that too has been working
    great up until yesterday when I installed and internal Iomega Zip, now when
    I plug my USB drive in my FRONT USB ports the little notification shows up
    in the tray but it don't show up in "My Computer" however if I plug the
    drive in the back USB it works? It gets even weirder, this is a dual boot
    system and 99.9% of the time the system is running XP Pro, however just a
    test I booted into WinME and plugged my USB drive in an it was recognized in
    the front USB. Basically the problem is XP don't like the USB drive in the
    front USB ports since the addition of the ZIP drive. If I leave it like this
    will it hurt my system? Any help would be greatly appreciated



    TIA,

    Joe
