My environment is entirely Windows 2000 Professional.

It is my understanding that the new USB Flash Media storage devices like Diskonkey and Cigar etc. are basically plug and play with w2k. However I have had a handful of users complain that the pc is not recognizing their device.

I just wantd to make sure that is was not necessary to install drivers in a w2k environment

Nearly all are, some versions of windows may need the M$ usb patch, and providing the motherboards have the correct drivers, and things are enabled in the BIOS you should be fine on W2K

Like Pete said W2k hasthe drivers needed.
For USB 2.0 (if your mobo supports it) you will need the latest drivers if you dont have them on the motherboard CD.

what I think they are seeing is the screen saying that their 2.0 hi-speed device wont be working at those speeds since the computer is only usb1.

I don't know if this will solve your problem, but it is a USB 2.0 driver that may work in Win2K: http://www.usb-drivers.com/drivers/86/86986.htm
