I can't seem to get the USB drives working on this PC.  I have reformated and they did work but somewhere in the process of downloading drivers they now don't work.  I have been out to Intels web site and have downloaded the USB drivers but they still don't work.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Yes I have installed all the drivers from the web site for XP home and also installed the drivers from the cd, do you think it could be a chip set driver?

For USB 2.0 support you have to install at least SP 2 on win XP. Did you do that?
Some windows updates may also cause such problems, can you use a system restore and go back to the time that you didn't download and install drivers?
