Can't use my Burner!!

I hooked up a Velocity Micro #101 to my ASUS Eee PC 1005HAB-RBLU005S (with Windows 7 Starter) and it came up just like it's suppose to, so I slipped in the driver disk and installed the software. When it was done I closed the program because I not going to be using it at that time. When I looked into Windows Explorer it was not there. I cannot seem to get this thing to work on my computer. It works fine on my desktop but not my mini notebook (for which I bought the darn thing). Can anyone please tell me why it's there and then it isn't there? I have played around with this for so long I am about to throw the darn thing right out the window. I'm deadly serious!! I've used my neighbors external drive and had not one problem so I know it's not that my system can't handle it. HELP!!! HELP!!!

If it works ok on your desktop, the most likely scenario is that your netbook is not supplying enough power to run the device.

From the User Guide:

Quote:
Some computer USB ports may not provide enough power to fully operate the VMdrive, especially during high draw applications such as burning DVDs and DVD playback. If this is the case, you may need to utilize the included AC/USB power cord

If you have tried this and it still wont work, Velocity Micro offer support here.
