Just got a USB Flash Drive SanDisk Cruzer http://www.sandisk.com/retail_cruzermini.html
Works fine on all my PC's except a Gateway 300X LTD with XP.
The PC boots up, recognizes the new drive, identifies it as a Cruzer USB, etc. brings up the Home page and than does a complete reboot. It would continue this loop until I remove the Drive than it boots normally.
I'm going to use this drive to keep my trouble shooting programs on it and wonder if this Gateway is just an oddball.
Also, I noticed, it appears I have to install a driver for use with 98.
Anyone familiar??

Thanks for the reply.
Machine would say"High speed HSB device plugged into a non- high speed USB Port", and than start rebooting.
XP is fully up to date. Ran XP patch anyway off usbman's site, no joy.
Removed and reinstalled USB Controllers in the Device Mangler.
Little sucker started working. Can plug and unplug, shows up as "F: Removable Disk".
Take the 125 points and run.
Thanks for the tip on usbman's site.

BTW, Compfixer, have a floppy but that's a good point to remember.
A lot of sets coming out without the floppy.
