Jump Drive Not Showing Up Disk Manager, My Computer

I'm running a HP WinXP Pro system and attempt to plug in a jump drive, it'll install and show in Device Manager, but not show up anywhere else, including Logical Disk Manager or My Computer.

Under Volume Information from Device Manager Properties on the drive, it populates all unknowns or unreadables. This jump drive works in other systems and I've tried mulitple USB slots and just will not work in this user's system now (it did before).

It look like a hardware problem. You need to summarize different statistical data about wrong work.

We have a long topic without solution

So I expect the same situation here too because it is hard to get the real situation via internet. It can be something that we can't expect.

I suppose that you stick work perfect on an other computer.

in disk management, is there a drive letter assigned? what options show ? can you open it from there?

you can also try this :
compare the c:\windows\driver cache; c:\windows\drivers; c:\windows\system32\drivers; and c:\windows\inf folders, with a working pc, and copy those folders on the NOT working pc, choose no to NOT overwrite existing files.

The plot thickens, with USB 2.0 disabled, the drive works fine. With it enabled, nothing.

nobus: It doesn't show up in DM as a drive. The only location it is visable is in Device Manager under Disks/Hard Disks and says it's working properly.

Thoughts?

nobus: I will try the other fix as soon as I reach the office

Alex: No, because the drive works elsewhere with other USB 2.0 AND USB 1.1, USB 1.0 ports. It specifically does not work in this computer.
