USB Memory does Not working on XPSP2
Posted on 2007-11-14
I have a compuer that is having reconizing USB storage devices. It will read and install any other usb device fine, however for the couple of Flash drives/USB hard Drive I have they will not work.
Upon inserting the device I notice in the device manager that it 'reads' a hardware change and attempts to start the drivers for the storage device, and then cannot find them. it asks me to install the drivers for the thumbdrive.
On all the other computers I try it on it points to a file named USBSTOR.SYS I attempted to point it to that file, but it will not allow me to point it to this driver as I cannot find the .inf file that it is related to. my questions are this: is there a way to force windows XP to use the .SYS file as a driver manualy going through the wizard; is there also a generic type driver that can be downloaded to replace the one that is malfunctioning?
