Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T23 2647 Notebook ?

I have an IBM Thinkpad model T 23 and a Simpletech external hardrive, a Signature mini. They seem not to work together, i.e. the simple tech unit shows up under My Computer, but nothing is readable. The USB connection on the T23 is not a high speed bus, but otherwise, what else could be the problem? Thanks!
