Computer won't shut down completely after installing Techgear US 2.0 card

    I installed a Techgear 2 port USB 2.0 card to use a Simpletech 250 gig
    external drive.

    After installation, system recognizes the drive just fine, I can
    transfer files without a hiccup. The problem I run into is shutting
    down. Even after going through the "stop" procedure on the external
    drive, with the drive turned off, on system shutdown the CPU fan and
    power supply fans keep running. Not clear if the internal drives
    themselves are running. The only way to kill them is to cut power to
    the computer. Upon restart, everything is fine.

    This occurs once I've powered up the external drive. If I don't ever
    fire up the h/d, everything is fine. But once I've opened the drive,
    the system runs into this problem.

    Running XP Home SP2, with all latest updates. Installed the latest
    drivers from the techgear site.

    Anyone ever run into this?

  3. What happens if you leave the external drive running on shut down?
