Thanks for thoughts Maxie I feel a complete idiot.
I think the PCI card you suggest might be worth a try if not to expensive and installation not to complex. Can you recommend one?

USB card didn't arrive so tomorrow hopefully.

In the meantime I have discovered the PSU I plugged into the router was for my Hitachi LS 1000 EMCA external hard drive which pokes out 12V OUCH!!. Got to laugh otherwise I'm going to cry. I decided to try the drive on my laptop to see if the PSU had been damaged as well. The drive appeared to power up OK but does not show up as a device. My laptop runs on windows 8.1 and so could this be the problem?

Think I'm going to change my ID to 'Problems'

Best regards Ken
